An image renders several Android phones unusable by placing it as ...

If you use Android, be careful with this picture. Several users have discovered that placing it as a wallpaper renders some phones with that operating system unusable. Your phone is not totally dead if it happens to you, but its screen will be locked and unlocked permanently even after being rebooted. The only thing that could be done about it would be to use safe mode to delete the photo file or format the phone.

WARNING !!!
Never set this picture as wallpaper, especially for Samsung mobile phone users!
It will cause your phone to crash!
Don't try it!

The origin of the problem could be related to the color ranges that your phone supports and how they are managed. It was discovered that the image uses the RGB color gamut instead of the sRGB color gamut, which is used by Android, and Android 10 cannot do the conversion, while Android 11 does. This causes problems every time an incompatible phone has to display the image, and if you have it as your wallpaper the situation only gets worse. Other images with RGB cause the same problem.

Fortunately, this is easy to avoid if you are aware. Always remember to get wallpapers compatible with your phone.

Do you use Android? Have you had similar problems with your phone?
