    Hey Guys,

    I have a jailbroken 1.1.3 iPod touch and am looking for a way to take screenshots on it.

    Is there an app or method that I can use to do this? Thanks.

    Screenshot.app
    Unfortunately, this application is known to cause some problems like crashing.

    Dock.app works too. All you do is tap the dock icon and tap the screenshot icon and takes a screenshot. But Dock.app has known to cause problems with compatibility in some applications like iPhysics.

    I have had a pretty easy time with Screenshot.app, however it does seem to bug out sometimes and work incorrectly. However, I still don't know where the pics save on the hard drive because they weren't where I told it to save, so that was confusing. But that's probably your best route right now. You can get Screenshot through Installer.

    uhhhh hello? Dock.app

    i LOVE Dock.app, im pretty sure its better than screenshot.app


    ya.. i use that anyway


    BTW, make sure, you dont have both installed at the same time, or else, might end up with a brick, just have one or the other, dock.app, or screenshot.app, NOT both at the same time

    hope this helps

    I just tried dock.app....can you save multiple screenshots at once, or can it only do one and then it overwrites?

    Yup, Screenshot.app can make jailbroken 1.1.3 touches crash. Made me restore once.

    why would you need multiple screenshots at once..

    but no, it will not overwrite it..

    take as many as you want

    Well, what I meant by my question was if I take one screenshot, it then saves it under a file name, and then if I take another, would it overwrite that original screenshot or create a new file for it?
