    freezes into safe mode every time i use it. how can i fix this

  • Pre_cious19

    yes i had the same problem when you download this it messes your software up and i had to get a new phone because it frozed the whole phone and i wasnt able to use it anymore.  I dont recommend this vwallpaper download to anyone,unless you want a really slow phone or want to replace one soon
