    How Do I Customise the Screensaver?

    Well, as I said a few days ago: In addition, we aren't stupid. And LG needs to stop assuming we are. We are all well aware that the Rick and Morty watching geniuses over at LG HQ picked specific photos so that our OLED sets would not burn in. Unfortunately, they neglected to consider the possibility that our corneas might. I think I'm going to start seeing these wallpapers in my nightmares, if someone doesn't find a way to remove them.

    How Do I Customise the Screensaver?

    @IAN MOUNTAIN Wrong screensaver, that option refers to the fireworks screensaver that comes up from inactivity. Just to clarify, this thread is a bit mis-titled. It isn't primarily about the screensaver, though a few users have complained about that in this thread as well, but the majority of the posts (including OP) are referring to what is probably better titled as a 'desktop wallpaper', the ugly, un-customizable images that cycle through on the 'No Input' screen. If LG is going to force us to look at their lame HDR photo gallery (that doesn't even download new ones from the internet like Chromecast or Windows Spotlight does) instead of just showing a blank screen with the text 'No Input' like every other TV, then at the very least they should let us customize the photos! If the issue is that the set may burn in if you put in 5 copies of the same image or something, as some have brought up, then they could simply add a disclaimer. They seem to have no problem doing so under the Screen Saver option, as you can see. As I said in my last post in April, I tried to use the SDK to get into the TV and change the photos. You need root access to get edit permissions to the relevant directories. Tried a few different techniques to try and get root access, but couldn't quite do it so I gave up. But if anyone knows how to properly root an LG TV I'd love to know.

    How Do I Customise the Screensaver?

    Made an account to post on this thread too. The fact that you can see the photos there in the gallery app but can't delete them or add more is so aggravating! How on earth can I not perform the basic function on my $1000+ TV of customizing the wallpaper? The stock photos just bother me so much. I like to draw my own minimalistic art. I hate the look of this way over-saturated photorealistic garbage. Worse yet, I can't even download my screenshots from the TV either, making the screenshot feature entirely useless. WTF LG!? Anyway, I also noticed the lack of any kind of file browser app, including on the Content Store, so I downloaded the SDK and I'm working on a simple file browser with basic copying/moving, etc. I found the USB drive mount point at /tmp/usb/sda/sda1. Unfortunately, I just can't find those stock photos or screenshots, or actually any .jpg files at all.
