    Default [Solution] How to take screenshot on 2.0 Beta

    I wanted to do screenshots for demonstration purpose on my pwned 2.0 beta iPhone and learned, that none of the apps that used to work up to FW 1.1.4 do their job. Neither does Ericas autosnap or the good old snapshot. Both throw an error. Did not find a solution here.

    Then I stumbled across RiP Dev's post here

    http://hackint0sh.org/forum/showthread.php?t=34459

    concerning Apples built in screenshot feature.

    Cause Installer app is not available under 2.0 beta for now, I edited the plist manually to give it a try, it's at

    /var/mobile/Library/Preferences/com.apple.springboard.plist

    I added one key/value:

    <key>SBMobileScreenshotr</key>
    <true/>

    or - better - if you use Plist Editor on a Mac its adding the child SBMobileScreenshotr of type Boolean and set the value to yes (result is the same).

    [EDIT Apr 7] Dipstah and appleguru are right. I did a clean update from pwned 1.1.4 to 2.0 beta and the setting is already there. So no editing the plist file needed, just use the new combination Home button and Sleep/Start button to screenshot. I obviously lost track on all the changes I made during my first try ;-) [/EDIT]
    Tried the trick then as described in the post:

    Hold the Home-Button then toggle mute button - works for FW 1.1.3/1.1.4 but not for 2.0 beta.

    Playing around with my iPhone I found out that Apple just switched buttons. In FW 2.0:

    Hold Home-Button the tap once Sleep/Start button. The screen flashes once then saves the screenshot to the camera roll.

    Hope that helps

    Same, no need to edit anything here either; screenshots seem to work oob in 2.0

    You can also use xcode to take screenshots directly from a connected 2.0 dev phone.

    Maybe its oob on 2.0. I was playing around and editing the settings so many times before I found that Home/Sleep Button.
    I know I can do it from xcode, just wanted to have a solution for on-the-go.
