Great post! Very useful.
Wanted to put together this guide as a follow up to my other JL_Cmder guide
on how to Wipe a BlackBerry:
for those Stackers that ask us how to take a screenshot to capture anything
from their theme, wallpapers, or even more importantly error codes so we can
better assist when problems arise.
Download the software here:
Once you have installed the file to your desktop be sure to run and complete the install.
You will now see this icon on your desktop - Double left click it to run the program, be sure your BB is connected via USB cable to your PC:
First screen that opens up looks like this:
As indicated, Press any key to continue
Next screen you will see is this one:
Type in Yes or No depending on your BB.
If your device does lock with a password then you will type a Y and then hit Enter and it will give you this screen:
Here you enter your password. If you don't lock your BB with a password, then type N and hit Enter in the previous screenshot prompt and you will be taken to the following screen:
Here you will type number 3 and hit Enter and be taken to the following screen:
Here you will enter whatever you wish to call your screenshot. I called mine LavasWall
You will then be taken to this screen and your screen capture will also pop up in MS Paint:
From here you can hit File at the top of the MS Paint window>save as>name it whatever you want
and I usually save in .jpg format
To load your screenshot in a post, you can use a free image hosting site such as Photobucket:
Watch your image size, make sure it isn't too large in your post. It shouldn't be as the capture gets it just about right.
Good luck and have fun!

That's pretty awesome and easy to use. Thanks. I was looking for something just like that,
i would still love to know how the heck to take one of an incoming call!!!! LMAO help meeee
Well, I guess you would have to have really GOOD timing but it could be done
Thanks Lavagirl. I,ve been looking for this app.
on windows you can try to take picture from active window only.
press Alt + Prt sc
to take screenshot only from active window. No need to cut pieces from screenshot taken from whole desktop.
So to take a screenshot I need to do it through the computer? There isn't a button combination on the BB to make this happen?
~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
So then there is no need for this for me.
i downloaded JL _cmder ,extracted the file and installed.....however,when i try and open the prog it says specific file does not exist?.......any ideas?Thanks
ok...thanks...its working now....really appreciate it
NP Glad you got it working.
Tanks a bunch
