Change Color Background On Galaxy Note 2

The Need to Change Color Background On Galaxy Note 2

One of the most obvious reasons why new launchers have been developed is because of the black background which is oftentimes annoying. These launchers are available online for free.


Android is very easy to customize. However, in some ways, customization can also be limited. These limitations include setting the background as well as changing the background of the app drawer. The limitations can be easily modified with the help of custom launchers. However, some people still choose to keep their stock launcher but would also want to change background. This is still possible. This tutorial will show the way how.


An app called XBackground was developed by the XDA Senior Member xperiacle. This app enables modification of some of the elements of your device including the background color and the notification panel. The guide below lets us go through this process specifically in the Samsung Galaxy Note 2. To get started, have your device rooted.
