The procedure to install MIUI 12’s Super Wallpapers is pretty straightforward, thanks to linuxct of XDA Developers who ported the live wallpapers from MIUI 12 for all Android devices. Apart from that, we have also mentioned how to access the Super Wallpapers along with some helpful tips for incompatible Xiaomi devices. Having said all of that, let’s now go through the steps.

8. On some Xiaomi devices, Super Wallpaper is not being applied on the lock screen. In that case, follow this simple trick. Press and hold the home screen and open “Wallpaper”. Now, open the “Wallpapers” menu that is located at the center.

9. A new Live Wallpapers section will open up. Now, click on any live wallpaper and tap on “Download”. After that, tap on “Apply” and choose “Set on both”.
