    How To : Droid X Screenshots

    This simple walk though will show you how to do a screenshot capture on your Motorola Droid device. In fact, this will work on most Google Android device. Unfortunately there is a simple program that I am aware of you can install on your Motorola Droid device and do a simple screen capture. At least not yet.

    Please note that when you plugged your X into your PC for the first time it should have installed the drivers so the USB driver install may not be necessary. This is a step by step for the original Droid which did not automatically install the drivers. I am using this procedure for my X so it works fine.

    What You Need:

    • When you first connect the Motorola Droid, windows will prompt for you to install a driver. If you don't see that prompt, go to your control panel -> system -> Hardware Devices. Find the one with the "?" icon and point the driver update to where you extract the droid_usb_driver to (this will work on other Android devices
    • On your Motorola Droid, go to settings -> application -> development and check "USB Debugging" (ref pics 1,2,3 below)
    • Extract the Android SDK
    • Extract and install Java SE Development Kit
    • Go to the Android SDK folder and go to sub folder "tools" (ref pic 4 below)
    • Launch "ddms.bat" (ref pic 5 below)
    • To start screen capture, go to "Device" and "Capture Screen" (ref pic 6 below)

    Below is what you get. That is a shot of my current X home screen. Have fun and be sure to post your results in this thread. http://www.droidxforums.com/forum/dr....html#post7190






    And here are a few screen caps of the step by step courtesy of DX member thescreensavers.

    There ARE apps to do this but they require root. Once we get root, look for ShootMe or Drocap2 in the market. They both work great.

    Yes I know this. But I didn't want to even bring that up and add confusion. We are not there yet.

    I figured you knew, I was just saying it since someone said that there should be apps for this. Don't want them thinking that no one has thought of it. It just isn't possible w/o root.

    On my Droid, I used DxTop home replacement and it did screen caps without root. Haven't bothered to install on Droid X, 7 screens are plenty :-)
