I Just Got Gingerbread On My Samsung Infuse. How Do I Take Screenshots? - Page 2

post #11 of 25
Hate to beat a dead horseand it's really not even relevant at this point anymore BUT......
OK we were arguing 2 different things then.
You were arguing that gingerbread doesn't support that feature natively. True but it's a feature built in almost every ROM
The only AOSP ROMs(CM7 and MIUI) that I've used had it as feature of the ROM. It's a well sought after feature so it's kinda standard to the point that even samsung and HTC include it in TW and Sense.

And I still disagree with statement that you NEED root to take screenshots. There's apps that don't require root as OP found

That app said that it only worked for three Samsung Galaxy phones though.

CM7 and MIUI aren't AOSP ROMs at all. Pretty much the only devices out there to run AOSP Android as stock are the Nexus series phones, and of course the G1. Apart from that, pretty much every single Android device out there is running an OS modified in some way by the manufacturer, and a lot of them do add a screenshot functionality. There are a lot of phones out there with the native ability to take screenshots, but I'd guess that the majority of them don't have it.

Aye, CM7/9 and Miui are not AOSP. AOSP is AOSP. That's the whole idea. Straight from Google, untouched. Just to be clear. smile.gif

I disagree. CM and MIUI are most definitely AOSP based ROMS

no they are modified from the source code level, so they are a completly diffrent os from the moment its compiled.

Ok now you're just getting into semantics.

AOSP =/= AOSP-based

Without getting too further off topic, I would be happy to explain it further in PM or something. Or we could talk over on XDA where I'm considered a "recognized developer."

(The subtle hint at my credentials was intentional.)

Surely you understand, having a Mint avatar and all. Mint is a relatively rare breed distro where its based off of a distro that's based off of another distro. (Debian -> Ubuntu -> Mint)

Would you say Mint is the same thing as Ubuntu? I wouldn't. I mean, they're pretty darn close, but they can be packaged completely different.

..although didn't Mint recently come out with a directly Deb based distro? I supposed that's a step in the right direction. Haha.

Fair enough...

AOSP-based ROMs are great. Cyanogen will do that as often as possible, and that's what's so great about it all. We can take even the purest form of Android and make it even faster, or improve the GPS, or improve the radio, or improve the battery life, or a balance of all of the above. Getting a brand new phone like the One X or something and having a stripped down version of ICS that's riddled with bloatware and customized for each provider is a major bummer. The Cyanogen team (and other awesome dev groups) come into play after the manufacturers release the (system and kernel) source and we can go to town on it. That's the beauty.

HTX One X with slow and bloated HTC/mobile carrier version of ICS, or...
CM9 AOSP-based ROM that's built around an enhanced One X kernel?

No-brainer. rolleyes.gif


But alas, I'm getting off-topic. Speak of custom ROMs, it's time to get back to this ICS GNote(ATT) ROM. wink.gif
