    Try changing the file extension. If it's a .jpg, try .png or vice versa. I think the Dock app screenshot takes .png's but has to rename it to a .jpg to get it into the Camera roll.

    PS If you have a Mac, just open it with Preview and then choose Save as... if you have a PC, try ?Paint?, idk, use whatever is the default app in XP/Vista.

    Are you guys taking screenshots in 1.1.1? If so, how? I have the screenshot file in /bin but whenever I try to execute it I get some line error....

    Dock is an absolute must have application, even more so than SummerBoard (imo)

    Actually Preview (Mac app) can clue you into the problem I described. When you choose save as and let's say you opened a .png fie that is really a jpeg file, Preview will prompt you to save as a .jpg file.

    Problem is Dock won't take a screenshot on a touch, either that or it saves it somewhere random.
    I read somewhere this maybe due to Dock.app not creating missing folders, can someone post a directory structure of the camera roll from an iphone so i can try to mimic it?
