Update with Error Fixed:
APK method had an error of Force closing whenever you are going to change the wallpaper. Wallpaper picker was closing the launcher as you are choosing it to change the wallpaper. Wallpaper is the main component of a Launcher. The launcher is incomplete without it. You will not get the full experience if you are not able to change the wallpaper.
So to fix it you need to install another app, called ‘Wallpaper picker ’. So whenever you want to change the wallpaper click on this app, in place of Wallpaper picker tray.
