Thread: Screenshots on touch
10-16-2007, 10:20 PM #1Screenshots on touch
Has anyone been able to get screenshots working on a touch?
The snap program from Ericas Utilities gives the following error:
2007-10-16 21:19:01.189 snap[68:d03] Couldn't register with bootstrap server unknown error code (0x44f); failing... 68: ABORT: Unable to register "UnknownPurpleApp" port, 1103 unknown error code zsh: abort snap mainscreen.png
I'd love to get both working, but even if I can just get one I'd be happy.

You must uninstall dock... I wrote a bit of a howto in "mypod touch" thrad.
That error means that some other application is trying to access the script (aka dock), and it wont work... good luck.

Well that's kind of a bummer considering Dock.app is pretty much my only means of navigation (I removed everything from the homescreen)
My only other idea was to get someone with an iphone to list teh directory structure for the camera roll in hopes that I could mimic that on the touch and get the Dock.app screenshot part working

I was thinking about that too, maybe someone could post up?

so after borrowing a co-workers jailbroken iphone for a few minutes, I determined that the path to the Camera Roll is pre-existing on the touch, and after a little digging around to find the location of the camera roll, I found that the snapshots from Dock.app were indeed working and being put into said folder.
I also tweaked the Info.plist from the mobileslideshow.app so that the camera app/icon shows up and runs on my touch.
In the camera app I can view the camera roll.
The only thing I need to figure out at this point is how to get the camera roll to show up in the "Photos" area like it does on the iphone, hopefully after a bit more digging around I'll find the solution
For reference, the camera roll is located at /var/root/Media/DCIM/100APPLE
And after posting this I opened iPhoto on my laptop and it wanted to automaticly import the new pictures from the camera roll, basicly all the screenshots I made.
So it seems aside from the Camera Roll actually displaying on the Photos section, everything else seems to be functioning just as an iPhone does.
The only feature that maybe missing at this point is if the iphone syncs the camera roll through itunes, but I'm not even sure if the iphone does that, my iphone owning co-worker wasn't very adept at explaining how it works for him :P
