Froyo's built-in screen capture
I've seen a couple of threads that say Froyo has screen capture. Supposedly while holding the back button push the power button(one thread) or the home button(the other thread). Neither works for me. The annoying thing is it happened once by mistake and the Gallery screencapture directory has one cap. I suppose I could have fat fingered the home and back at the same time. Is there a secret to getting this working. I know there are apps, but this bugs me.

I know this works on the Epic, Fascinate, Charge, and Transform, but I've never heard of it working on the Cappy. There may be a secret way to get it to work though. Just keep pushing buttons

Yep, it does happen... I accidentally took a screen cap the other night and have no idea exactly how.
I was in the standard Facebook app and was trying to head back to my home screen. I think I pressed the Home and Back buttons and that's what did it. It made the shutter sound and said a notification at the bottom "Screen Capture Saved..." or something along those lines, and it made a new folder in the Gallery for "Screen Captures."
Any attempts I've had at duplicating produced nothing.
I'm using a Froyo Captivate no root, just straight up.
Here's the proof! My screen cap!

We're starting to figure this out now!

Re: Froyo's built-in screen capture
It's not in the market, and when I try to install it from this page (the link in Dolphin browser), nothing happens after I click install.
Not to mention that the name of my phone is grayed out and the only option is "to phone."
And yes, I have upgraded to Froyo.
