    I rooted with Revolution last night and did S-Off and the whole deal

    I have tried numerous screen shot apps from the market and they all act like they take a picture via the different ways but none of them save to the sd card in the folder it creates.

    anyone else having this problem? found nothing in this forum with screen shot in the same post

    I really want to send screen shots to my friends....


    PARTIAL SOLUTION::
    Drocap2 (free) from the market worked for me as well as other 3VO users. The trick I found was to turn off Notifications in the SuperUser application under Settings. This got rid of the horizontal lines and contrast problems.

    Others have not had this work, see here

    It's a known issue with HTC's GB ROMs. The fact that it can capture a garbled image means it's not due to root status.

    drocap2 is working for me, although the interface is pretty boneheaded. Give that one a try.

    What are you folks using for screenshot app?

    I tried ShootMe but it's taking these awful blurry pics.

    run the DDMS.bat from a cmd window first; that way when the program exits, you'll see any error messages it left.

    I've been using screenshot it... Love it! Can save, share, and even crop pics of your screen. Very versatile.

    ShootMe works for rooted phones (this is All Things Root) and the new 2.08 rom has screen shots built-in now, rooted or not.

    How about holding the power button and pressing home. That has worked for me on the 3VO since the new update.
