3. X Mode 2.0
Lastly, you should also download the X Mode 2.0 app. This app adds a Quick Settings toggle that you can use to switch the state of wallpaper. While this app won’t bring Asus’ X Mode to your phone, it helps replicate the animation behavior and brings it closer to what you will find on ROG Phones.

Set ROG Phone 5s Live Wallpaper on your Android Phone
Once you have downloaded and installed all the required apps, you can set the ROG Phone 5s live wallpaper from your phone’s wallpaper picker. If it doesn’t list the wallpaper, you could use the Google Wallpaper app (Download, Free) to set the wallpaper.
Configure X Mode 2.0 App and Use ROG Phone 5s Live Wallpaper
When you open X Mode 2.0 app on an unrooted phone, you will see an error message urging you to run the following ADB command. Install ADB on your PC if you haven’t already (or run ADB from your browser) and run the following command:
adb shell pm grant space.linuxct.rogcontroller android.permission.WRITE_SECURE_SETTINGS
After running this command, you can bring the X Mode toggle to the Quick Settings panel. To do that, tap on the pencil icon and drag the toggle to the active area. You can now turn it on or off to change how the wallpaper looks.
And well, if you are wondering whether it works or not, it does, and that too flawlessly. I installed all the apps on my Pixel 3 running Android 12 and was able to use the Asus ROG Phone 5s’ live wallpapers with ease. Here’s how it looks:
