Screenshots now possible on (some) HTC Androids

Following the new Android 2.3.5 update you should now be able to enjoy a funky little trick that we have just used to write this very story.


Hold down POWER and them press the HOME key to take a screenshot, then your picture will be saved in the gallery. There’s no rooting required any longer and those lucky Desire S owners should now find that this screen capture trick works on their phone. Give it a bash and let us know. :)

Currently this is only working on HTC kit running Android 2.3.5 and Sense 3.0.

    Works on mine since the update. However, in my people app the address finder now points to the HTC app and not Google maps which is annoying.

    This has been on the sensation for ages but it is causing lots of issues for lots of people, sometimes just pressing the home key takes random screen shots, and you have to reset the phone to stop it from doing so. very annoying.
