    This seems like a total noob question but how do you get the screen shot of your Droid?

    This works on some non-rooted phones. Its a trial to see if it works: Screenshot It Trial - Android app on AppBrain

    Or you can use the android sdk. Just Google "take screen shots without rooting". You'll find some how-to links from droid life and android central.

    I'm rooted and use to the app AndroSS... I think it works on some phones without root too. But correct me if I'm wrong.

    If you are not rooted and want to take screenshots in Android 2.2, look for an app called MyPhoneExplorer in the Market.
    No SDK installation required, but you will need to install a PC component, and your phone needs to be connected via USB to take screenshots.

    Didn't work on my D2. So as far as I'm concerned you have to root to do a screen shot.

    In Gingerbread the SurfaceFlinger screenshot API does not require root privilege.
    I expect to see apps in the Market that can do screenshots without root privilege when GB becomes mainstream.
