    hi, look for ericas utilities in installer, install it

    then enable ssh on your iphone.

    use a connection client to log into your iphone, i use winscp

    navigate to /private/var/root/bin on your phone

    look for a file called snap2album, bring up whatever screen you like on your phone, music player for example, then right click on the snap2album file, choose -> custom commands -> execute - this then will snap an image and place in your camera roll for downloading the normal way.

    its like remote snapshots, works in any screen, like the ones in my sig.

    HTH

    btw, you just need to launch/execute the snap2album file, its wording may differ from client to client.

    and also this was on 1.1.2 so that file location may be different.

    hmmm what version iphone you have? 1.1.2 1.1.3 etc

    there are a few snap type of files in that folder, ensure it is definitely snap2album not snap or not autosnap.

    and ensure the phone screen doesnt go off just as you do it, lol - mine annoyingly kept blacking out to sleep just as pressed execute!

    I know where your picture is, if you used the snap2album in /private/var/root/bin then check your /private/var/root/Media/DCIM/100APPLE directory thats where my picture ended up and not in camera roll. Thanks to Quaddy I also snaped a pic from my charging screen.
