Default Samsung Galaxy S2 Skyrocket Screen Shot Help?

I just bought the Skyrocket, two days ago.
I'm loving it. And, I was taking screen shots on it before.
The way I did it was, Holding the home button than pressing the power button.
Simple enough.
Then, Through Samsung Kies I put 4.0.4 on it.
Love it even more now.
Only thing.. Screen shotting isn't the same way, or is it even on here anymore?
I've seen people complain that upgrading to ics takes some things away.
Anyone know how, or if there is a way to screen shot on the skyrocket with the official ics?

Press and hold the home and power keys at the same time. Timing takes some getting used to, but it works.

I took about 10 screen shots before I put ics on it and I had it down.
Now it just isn't working. Any other methods?

I could never get the timing right on Gingerbread, always too slow with either the home or power button. Installed ICS and the very first try got it to work. I just tried it again and it worked although I had to try it three times, timing is still an issue.

Well I press the power button a split second before pressing the home button and it works perfectly for me. Not sure why it isn't working for you.

Tap home once and then press and hold home and power. Think of it as double tapping home but on the second tap press power too and hold them both.

Works now thanks.

Now, when it was Gingerbread it worked almost similarly, then with ICS it completely changed keys, now on Jelly Bean it's different again. Why can't they keep it consistent without having to search forums for functionality every time?

In Ice Cream Sandwich...

Press the volume down button and the power button at (almost) same time and hold them together for around 1-2 second.

This is the method that works everytime for me! Hold power and home at the same time and hold for 2 seconds until it takes the screenshot. I can get it to work everytime. And completely agree on "quit changing it everytime you do an update"!
