Default Wallpaper issue (resolved)

I just upgraded my HTC Inspire to the new One yesterday, and I'm in the process of customizing it. I'm trying to add either a live wallpaper or one of the regular wallpapers; however, the only screen on which the background changes is the lock screen. All other screen backgrounds remain black. Is this expected behavior, or am I doing something wrong? I followed exactly the same procedure that I did with the Inspire.

That doesn't sound right.

Settings > Personalize > Wallpaper, is all it takes.

That's exactly the procedure I was following. I have tried live wallpapers and static ones. The background never changes from black on any of the screens except the lock screen.

Then something is very wrong or you are using a 3rd party launcher, which has its own wallpaper settings

I figured out the problem. The screens are black when that blink feed mode is toggled off. Once I toggled that on and swept sideways instead of up and down, the wallpaper behaved as expected. Now if only I could figure out why I have more icons when blink feed is toggled off compared to when its on ...
