Thread: iPhone Screenshot Utility released

  1. #1
    Default iPhone Screenshot Utility released
    Someone over at The Unofficial Apple Weblog created a little iPhone utility to take snapshots of the iPhone's display in other applications. There isn't much information yet, but it appears to need the command line on the iPhone and outputs the screenshot to a PNG file.

    EDIT: Not sure what differences this utility has compared to the one in mobileTerminal.
    EDIT 2: I don't know how I posted the wrong link, but now the right one is up.

    I installed and got it to work. You don't need mobileTerminal installed. In fact, if you want to take screenshots of anything but mobileTerminal, then don't bother getting mobileTerminal installed.

    All you really need is ssh access into your iPhone. You'll need chmod as well (but that should already be on the iPhone if you got ssh working). Just use iPHUC or iPhoneInterface to putfile the screenshot binary into /bin, ssh into the iPhone and chmod +x the file. If you want to take a screenshot of the current display on your iPhone, ssh into the iPhone and type in /bin/screenshot, and it'll save the screenshot to /tmp with a name like 'foo_1.png' which you can retrieve by iPHUC, iPhoneInterface, or sftp (if you have that installed).

    Here's a screenshot of my ugly home screen that I took with screenshot:

    Use putty to ssh into the iPhone. http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty/

    Can anyone tell me how to use this utility with a mac??? I know with windows you use winscp, right click the file and go to execute or whatever, but how can I do this with fugu or cyberduck (or terminal??)??? Is there a way?

  19. #16
    How do you run commands from a mac on the iphone? Any type of terminal interface should work..

  20. #17

    how do I install this using iBrickr?

  23. #20
    please help! i can't seem to get past the step in which you type cd /bin in terminal. whenever i type chmod or cd /bin, the error message says, "connection to [IP address] closed."

    what could be the problem? i already followed the step-by-step instruction. i used Fugu to transfer the screenshot file into my iPhone's bin folder. i am using Mac OS X Tiger by the way.

    thanks in advance.
