This Image Will Crash Any Android Phones, If Someone Sends It To You, Ignore It!

Do not set this image as wallpaper for your Android phones! do not set this image as wallpaper for your Android phones! We are serious!

2020 seems to be the weirdest year so far with a pandemic, hurricanes, and locust. But embrace yourself for something really weird. There is a seemingly simple picture that when you set it as wallpaper on any Android phone, the device will crash.

Some people say the image is cursed, but actually, things are quite simple to explain. Behind this pretty image of sunset over a lake surrounded by forests and mountains is a color profile that was improperly coded. When the image becomes wallpaper on any Android phones, the devices’ Android System UI will definitely crash.

The image is being shared on social media and some people are stupid, or skeptical enough to set it as wallpaper themselves to see what happens. However, only the original image can cause this trouble. If you screenshot it or edit the image in any way, the mysterious power will be gone and it becomes a harmless photo again.

If you are curious, here are what that pretty sunset image can do:

  • It will crash your Android phone.
  • Some say it affects only Samsung phones but that is not the case. Android emulators have been reported to be affected too.
  • Do not try it unless you want to factory reset your phone and lose everything you store on it.

If you have set it as your wallpaper and are now completely convinced what it can do as your phone is either in bootloop or bootloader, here are the potential fixes:

  • If your phone is now in safe mode, change the wallpaper back into something else.
  • If the phone is not in safe mode but you have a custom recovery, go to the app and eliminate the wallpaper data.
  • If none of these solution works for you, the only way out left is factory reset the phone, which will return the device back to it pristine state when you first bought it.

We really hope you read this article before you try setting that cursed image as your Android phone’s wallpaper because, in the worst case scenario, we do hope you back up your data.
