    If you only want to root your phone to get this app, why not find another app ??

    Hi Ruth...

    First....

    can I tell you you do not need an App to do screen capture on your phone!!!

    Here is how to do it.. .

    When you are in the screen you want to capture....

    just press "Home" and "Power" keys together....and release both!!

    Power just on/off quickly....

    it will show message like below....

    [​IMG]

    [If task manager pop-up happens before you get a chance to press power....just dismiss this with back button (right soft key)....then... press power and release immediately]

    You will find the screen capture pic in Gallery under ScreenCapture !!!

    Or....if you want to.....

    in any file manager.....

    like default "MyFiles"...

    sdcard/ScreenCapture....

    [​IMG]

    hope this helps.....

    if you still wanna Root....let me know.....I will provide instructions!!

    If you are still on stock recovery, no problemo amigo!!

    Here is a link to the rooting procedure from THE-E....

    on XDA......

    http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?p=18713148

    Use the root via recovery method, No. 1 on the list....

    This works best for most Wonders.....

    using the default Stock Recovery

    As there are no official ics releases, you would need to root as is with gingerbread, then follow instructions on flashing custom roms, and flash an ics ROM!
