    Need to take screenshots of the lockscreen? Here's how it's done on 2.x firmware:

    1) Install UIKit Tools from Cydia
    2) SSH in as user: mobile password: alpine (using putty or terminal)
    3) Go to the lockscreen on your device
    4) from the command line in SSH type uishoot
    5) Now go to Photos and check your Camera Roll. Your screenshot should be there.

    Hello smile

    Here is a trick to take the screenshot of your lock screen. Need some tries and a little practise you will be able to.

    1- Put the finger that is beside your thumb of right hand on Power button. (dont press yet)
    2- Put the thumb of your left hand on Home button (dont press yet)
    3- Now slide the Slider with your Right hand Thumb and dont leave it yet.
    4- Now you have to be quick , left up the right hand thumb and at the same time quicky press power button and home button.

    If you are quick enough you ll get the screenshot of your lockscreen wink

    It took me 2 minute practise and now i can take screesnshot any time i want wink

    Have fun smile
