Is there a screen capture app for the Eris?
No app until we have root.
Here are the instructions, if you get stuck ask. I couldnt get it to work on Windows 7 for a while and someone here helped me get it working:
dxtop, if you are running it has the option I think. Remember seeing it in the menu, but never tried it.
I'm pretty sure the SDK route is the only option on non-rooted devices.
soulfetcher13 is right ... dxtop does have the option for a screen shot, but then you have to use that home replacement. If you dont want to use a home replacement, or you want to use one of the many other home replacements, dxtop is worthless.
Dxtop is worthless!! Blasphemy! I like dxtop
Read the whole post Caddy, dont give me that crap . Worthless if you dont want home replacement or are using another home replacement.
O i get it, i am burnt today, too much work....ugh
well i downloaded an apk file of the internet called screen shot specifically for android it has a timer .... i pushed it using adb , but can't seem to get it to work i wait five seconds and nothing happens ....i know this is possible cuz ive seen tons of screen shots for eris roms etc.
If you're rooted, you can use an app called ShootMe (free from the market). You open the app, enable the service, and then shake your phone or yell each time you want to grab a screenshot. They're saved on your SD card in a "ShootMe" folder. Then open the app again when you're done, and disable the service.
If you're not rooted, you have to do it through the SDK while connected to your computer for debugging.
