Magisk is officially supported on Android versions 4.2⁠–⁠9.0. DisableFlagSecure module for Xposed. Xposed is officially supported on Android versions 5.0⁠–⁠8.1. The Smali Patcher method ...

So basically, when you are putting something in the file system (like when you are taking a screenshot) you have to broadcast ACTION_MEDIA_SCANNER_SCAN_FILE so that other applications are aware of it (otherwise android photo gallery can not display your screenshot). So Snapchat has to wait for that broadcast and when it receives the broadcast it just has to ...

You don't have to continue working blindly, you can use Droid@Screen: it shows the screen of a real or emulated Android device on a computer running Windows, Mac OS or Linux.

You can take screen shots with ddms and the Android SDK. It's not hard to set up. See http://www.thefireblog.com/2011/11/16/houston-we-have-screenshots/: So, here’s a quick summary people: Install the android SDK tools, then the platform-tools Edit your adb_usb.ini file to add the 0×1949 vendor ID at the end Ensure that adb is running properly ...

The following method also requires root, but may be better and easier if you need the screenshots while writing articles, app reviews or documentation. You do not need complex instructions or the Android SDK, and this works on all rooted devices. Install droid VNC server. Print Screen. Profit!

A one line script should do this on a root 'ed handset, be aware that this is for Linux and hard-coded for 800x480 screen resolution and also, if your Android's Linux Kernel has framebuffer support compiled in: #!/bin/sh adb pull /dev/graphics/fb0 fb0 && ffmpeg -vframes 1 -vcodec rawvideo -f rawvideo -pix_fmt rgb565le -s 480x800 -i fb0 -f image2 -...

You can check the scrollscreenshot tool: https://github.com/PGSSoft/scrollscreenshot It makes multiple screenshots and simulates drag events to scroll content between each screenshot, then join all images into one.

The Power+Vol- combo isn't instant, you have to hold it for a couple of seconds. And, as you noted, press the Power button first or you'll get the volume control and power off your phone.

As your device is rooted, you could use the Xposed module DisableFlagSecure: An Xposed Framework module that disables FLAG_SECURE on windows system-wide. This lets you take screenshots and do screen capture in apps that normally won't let you. (That said, you probably don't want to leave this on permanently). You can of course also find it in the Xposed ...

For my US Cellular Galaxy S running gingerbread, I had the same problem. When trying to screen capture the text conversation by holding the "back" and "power/standby" buttons, it backs up a screen and takes a screen shot of the message board. I found a work-around. Pull up the message thread you wish to capture. Press and hold the back button. Tap the power/...

On the Samsung Galaxy Pocket GT-S53001, you can do it without any third party software. Follow these instructions: Go to the screen that you'd like to capture. Press and hold the Home button (center), then right after that, quickly press the Power button. If you wait too much it won't work and you'll just set the phone block. If that is done successfully, ...

When I got the 2.3.4 Upgrade on my Sony Ericsson Arc (from 2.3.3) holding down the power button brings up the "airplane mode/power off/silent" menu, and new to 2.3.4 is the presence of a "take screenshot" button as well.

Old question , posting to add alternative using Google Now on Tap on Marshmallow, which does away with failed attempts in getting the right combo of keys correctly pressed (at times I ended up rebooting :-) This has the advantage of better organising screenshots or sharing directly with contacts using Direct Share, which pops up when you wish to share ...

Hope that helps

We are used to Print Screen function on computers. How to take screenshot of Kindle Fire HD or Kindle Fire 2 1. Press and hold Volume Down & Power buttons simultaneously.

It works out that you just have to keep trying. The Power and Volume down together (for around a second) will eventually yield a screenshot about 1 time out of a hundred. Took a look at most of the apps out there and they either need you to root the device or install loads of other stuff, work for phones rather than tablets or just don't work. Guess I'm ...

Android's hotkey to take screenshots is Vol Down and Power pressed simultaneously for about 3 seconds. The delay is there to prevent accidental presses. ( Samsung phones hotkey is the Power and Home button )

Long press the volume down and power buttons at same time to capture a screenshot anywhere instead of using power menu selection. Android collapses the status bar as soon as you open power menu, so that will not work. And use Google Goggles for Chinese translation.

If what are you asking for is the location of the thumbnails displayed by Android when switching apps, then (on my LineageOS 13) they are stored inside /data/system/recent_images as PNG files called x_task_thumbnail.png (x being a possibly random number). Since the thumbnails are owned by user system and group system, and their octal permissions are 600, ...

Remove that lowercase "m" in https://i.stack.imgur.com/XXXXXm.png (More Info) The screenshot has nothing to do with your cameras. A screenshot is taken by the system (or the graphics driver), who takes one frame from its rendering buffer and saves the frame. Thus a screenshot always has the same resolution as your screen, and is always a PNG. Changing ...

Taking a screenshot requires root or system permissions (or an root exploit). I assume your ROM is a official Lineage release. Assuming further that their signing key has not leaked the app you are searching for should use root permissions is part of the OS. Therefore a first step would be revoke all allowances for apps to use root permissions. List ...

If you have root, use the app ShootMe. You just shake it and it takes a screenshot. If you have a custom ROM that runs off of CyanogenMod (CM) or is based off of CM, then hold down the power button and select the screenshot option.

I haven't tested since I don't have my Fire yet, but it can be rooted with SuperOneClick, which means you can probably take screenshots with an app like ShootMe or Screenshot ER 2. I would think Amazon would advertise it if it could take screenshots without root, so I would suspect non-root users to be out of luck. That said, ShootMe has been known to work ...

This might help: How to take a screenshot with an Android device? Basically Android doesn't provide you a direct way to take a screenshot the way iOS does. But Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich will.

Why are you doing it that way? Not surprised that the app that was downloaded failed to work! Android 4.0.4 has native screenshot facility in place - hold down Power button and press the volume down key simultaneously. A screenshot will be captured and stored on /sdcard/Screenshots

Have you installed the USB driver? You need to install the USB driver to use development tools in Windows, they have to be downloaded and installed separately. For your device Micromax A50, try the following guide.
