***BUT FIRST READ THIS STUFF ABOUT COMPATIBILITY***
Root is DEFINITELY REQUIRED on most devices. The only exceptions are those based on the Tegra hardware platform. If you are not sure what root is or whether your device is Tegra-based, please take a few minutes to Google the answers before trying the app.

Additionally, there a few known issues. Skip a few paragraphs to read about those.

AndroSS is an open-source, GPLv2'd, ad-free screenshot program targeted at developers and advanced users. It works quickly and quietly, and will not 'watermark' your screen shots in any way.

Features:
* activate on hardware camera button or device shake
* configurable compression level (PNG, quality JPG, fast JPG)
* configurable feedback (toast popup, audio notification, vibration)
* persistent mode (remain enabled after each screenshot)
* rootless screenshots on Tegra devices


Known issues:
* On some devices, tinted screenshots, usually red. I haven't been able to pin this down yet - if you come across it, I'd at least like to know what you're running.
* Does not work on Ice Cream Sandwich and up due to Weird Framebuffer Shit, but who cares? The built-in screenshot functionality is way better than my jank app.


Feedback welcome. The AndroSS source is available at http://github.com/tstein/AndroSS

Works fine Motorola Droid X2 Have been using this app for screen caps for the past three years on a couple of Motorola Droid X2s. Since these phones are Tegra based and not rooted, I have no problems with this app, other than a slight to long delay when one shakes the phone to initiate the capture. Otherwise a fine application that faithfully captures whatever is being viewed on my screen, including stills from some video streams. Many thanks to the developer! 5 stars.

Simple and efficient especially utilising the camera button. Light in size (not even in megabyte like others) although it consumes 5 megabyte of ram.
