    I just got a ZTE Warp for my birthday and it is my first android phone.

    I want to be able to screenshot on my phone without rooting it, is there any options at all that don't involve rooting?

    I would root but I'm having reservations as I'm not very tech savvy and I don't want to brick my brand new phone...

    Any suggestions????

    That's ridiculous.. 5 bucks for a app that seems to getting.lots of bad reviews. I.suggest installing n00b Rom.. it will root your phone and install the best custom Rom we have available.. only takes about 2 mins after downloading the file and placing it on your sd card. Custom Roms are much better than the stock phone. We wouldn't point you in the wrong direction... we have made this phone much.better than it is stock.:p

    Roms are basically customized/optimized iterations of android that you can install... there are many options and you can install any one of them that you like... here is a list and reviews of most of the available ROMs http://androidforums.com/showthread.php?t=570308

    OC equals overclocking which is basically cranking up the speed of the phones processor which in turn improves your phones performance

    The reason I suggest n00b is.Because it's an awesome rom but.mainly because you can install it without using a computer, idk if any.other roms are flashable through stock recovery... but there are many great roms. For someone like your self who doesn't want any little bugs I would only suggest noob or warp cream sandwich.. but I'm.not sure if warp cream sandwich is set to flash through stock recovery.

    It.used to be difficult and require a computer to root and install custom roms now it can be done straight off the.phone in a.matter of minutes

    The problem with showing her that thread jetx is she's not.going to want to go through the hassle of trying to install most of those roms as they require already having cwm.
    Jetx is the developer behind wcs by the way kitty. His Rom is very nice as well. One.of my favorites

    This thread has a topic. I know this because I was able to find it up there in the original post. Since the topic isn't, "Convince me to root my phone then argue about it" I can see that the thread has gone off topic.

    Please, stick to the topic and help the new member out with app suggestions.

    Thank you.


    Welcome to the forum. I hope you find the help you are looking for.

    Of the damned. I have no reason to convince the person to root other than her best interest. Bc the only app that allows screenshots w/o root is not only 6 dollars but it's far more involved than just holding the search button and hitting screen shot.. so we are on topic, we were simply trying to help the op be able to use the best apps for what she's trying to do;)

    But hey I won't say the word root anymore.

    So how about screenshoter, or screenshot?
