    thanks for the link coolbreeze, that's the method I use. Only thing this method doesn't seem to be able to capture is live camera views, they just show black. But I don't think there is a currently existing way to do that nor do I know why you'd really want to.

    ... still waiting on a simple app from the market that will take screen shots with an un-rooted Droid.

    Should I grab a Snickers?

    I think that this is my second gripe about a simple thing that Droid should either do or have an app for. Come on devs.

    From what I've read over at XDA-Developers, it can't be done without root. Something about the need to read from a file in /dev/graphics that can't be accessed without root.

    If it were possible, I'm sure there'd already be 100 different apps out there. It's not a problem with the Droid, it's Android from it's first iteration up to 2.1.

    Yea, I don't think there's a way of reliably grabbing the screen without rooting. What's wrong with installing the Android SDK and using eclipse to grab screenshots? Its not that hard to setup the development environment, and once you have it installed you can play around with making your own Android apps
    Looking for app ideas to work on

    you all need to learn what the android sdk is and how it has the MOST reliable screen capture program that can screenshot literally any screen on any phone, rooted or not.
