Configure – Home Screen Background

Non PRO workspace customers can update their background by side-loading a custom json file to their devices.

Config Files:

/<storage>/realwear/com.realwear.launcher/config/config.json ← custom file

Format and Options

To set a custom image as the Home Screen background on the HMT, it must first be converted to a Base 64 encoded string. The original image should be 854 x 456 pixels to avoid any clipping or distortion.

To convert your image to the required string format, refer to Base 64 Encoding.

Example json file:

"backgroundImage": {
"default_background": "light",
"light": "base 64 encoded image",
"dark": "base 64 encoded image"
