    I used to be able to do it pressing the power button and homescreen at the same time but since upgrading to ICS, that doesn't work anymore. Any ideas? :(

    That combo still works for me on ICS, LPI. However, various other combinations seem to work on different ICS releases, as discussed, here and here.

    I saw the volume down and power button thing on a Youtube video, that doesn't work either :confused:

    Will check now cheers.

    The latest UK, unbranded, firmware. Not tried that one myself and so I cannot comment about screenshot.

    You could try either...

    A Factory Reset

    or, re-flashing the XEU firmware using Odin.

    Factory reset means back to Gingerbread doesn't it :(

    I like ICS.

    Is it possible to do it on the phone without having to connect to my computer and back everything up?

    WhatsApp will be re-installed, along with your other app's, from the Google Play Store provided you are sync'd with it. The conversations will be lost but your WhatsApp contacts will be added as originally from your phone Contact list.

    After Factory Reset, check that Screenshot is working.

    Alternatively, you could do a search of the Play Store as there are a few non-root screenshot app's on there.

    its very sensitive to the precise timing of the 2 keys being pressed.

    Press VOL-DOWN (or HOME) too much before or after you press POWER and you will just see the system volume bar going down/recent apps (depending on if you are using VOL-DOWN or HOME)

    They need to be pressed pretty much at exactly the same time, and then there is about a 1 second delay before the screen shot is actually taken.

    What do you get on screen when you try?

    What firmware are you on by the way?

    It works :D:D:D:D

    Thank you.

    Only problem is since the factory reset one of my contacts on WhatsApp doesn't have their name anymore, just the number :(
