Take Screenshots in Android 2.3.3 Without Root

To take screenshots on an Android phone was one big fuss that you had to root your phone in order to take screenshots in Android. But now, thanks to Android 2.3.3, this limitations has been lifted up and you can take screenshots on an Android phone without the need to root.

Screen Capture without root will have to be added by app developers and (atleast currently) is not supported in the stock Android 2.3.3. on the Nexus S or Nexus One.

I hope apps like ShootMe (Android Screenshot App) would soon add this native Android 2.3.3 screen capture feature.

  • I somehow managed to do this on my Vibrant once when the program was hanging. Doesn't seem to be easy to re-create while the phone is functioning normally with these capacitive buttons.

  • Sam

    any idea when an app will be available for this screenshot feature?

  • No idea for now, but keep an eye on ShootMe Android app.
