So, I understand that ShootMe and other screenshot apps were originally designed for rooted phones, and that the Evo had a loop-hole that allowed it to work prior to the 2.3.3 Gingerbread update, but why then does it no longer work after the Gingerbread update when some sources claim that one of the enhancements with Gingerbread was adding the ability to take screenshots without
root-level access (see online article below)?

Is it a matter of third-party app. devs developing software to take advantage of the new functionality provided with Gingerbread 2.3.3, or is this simply inaccurate information, and we really have no hope of screenshotting with the Evo unless we surface-dwellers dig in and root our device?
I'd really like to someone with fairly authoritative
information to reply to this if you're out there and can speak to it.
I'm an un-rooted Evo user, and I'm not all that enchanted by the idea of rooting, so I'm interested in any developments surrounding the ability to screenshot on the Evo with the latest Gingerbread OTA 2.3.3 update.
