    There is a way using the Android SDK.

    This tutorial is not up to date but it should still work. ;)

    Thanks but i want to take screen shots using the phone alone. (or am I not understanding how SDK works:eek:)

    Thanks but drocap2 is for rooted phones and you have to re-instal No Root Screen-Shot it every time you reboot the phone.

    I don't think there's any app that allows you to take screen shots without root... the only other way I know is by using DDMS from the Android SDK .

    Just download the android sdk and install it In the tools folder is ddms.bat, with your phone connected to your desktop double click it and you will get a screenshot.

    If you have a Samsung Galaxy or HTC phone, some models of these already have it built in. For example, on a Galaxy phone, hold the back button and then press home.

    Actually there is. When I was fiddling around with launchers on my Intercept, I ran across one of them that had a screenshot option that actually worked on a non rooted phone. Normally this isn't possible on the Intercept without using the SDK method... but for the life of me I cannot remember which launcher app does this.

    Thanks everyone, looks like it's time to look into rooting.

    "No-root Screenshot It" works on everything except Honeycomb. The $5 kind of sucks. "Shootme" works on some un-rooted phones. It was free and a very good app. until they took it off the Market 2 months ago.
     
  10. I guess you don't have an .apk of it that you can post here, do you?

    I don't know but at the AM that's what it's called, "No-root Screenshot It" by Edward Kim. Hope this helps.:)

    I use "Screen Shot It", which I'm not rooted, on my Atrix and it works great. Very simple and easy to use. Worth the money. (Forgot how much.)

    I believe this doesn't work with an un-rooted HTC Desire HD.
    Can anyone confirm this as i'm not willing to pay for it if it doesn't work on my phone

    Thanks but this is the one that you have to re-install after every reboot.

    If I remeber correctly, you get a free trial first before you have to buy.

    Yeah, you have 15 minutes to try it and still get a refund if it doesn't work. But I think it will work. Good luck.

    There's a free trial on the market of Screen Shot It, and that did not work on the Desire HD.
