    Some of you may know that our indulges come loaded with a weird samsung app called com.sec.android.app.screencapture. I found that theres another samsung phone running FROYO that is able to take screenshots without being rooted. Apperrantly all you do on it is hold the back button and press the home button and the screenshot is taken. However it looks like it needs another little bit of samsung code to work. Check it out could be interesting if it can work on the indulge.

    I have looked around and lots of people think that the samsung screencaptureservice.apk on the galaxy line of phones allows built screenshot capabilities. Several galaxy line phones and also tablets have been confirmed to have built in screenshot support. I have seen the screencapture service running in the background and I was wondering if anyone has somehow managed to take a screenshot on a non rooted indulge. If someone knows how to take screenshots on a stock indulge help me out as I don't want to root my phone.

    I take screenshots on my samsung indulge all the time with an app from the app store called "ScreenShot It" and I am not rooted...I believe it was free as well.

    While there are apps to take screenshots on unrooted phones, it might just be a good idea to root it. It's simple as hell, takes <10 minutes, and there are plenty of other advantages as well
