Hey guys new to cm here. Learned a lot from this forum though and many thanks for that. Anyway, I haven't had the option for the native screenshot in the power button menu. I've flashed a few nightlies and still no option. Currently running on nightly 24. Any ideas?

yeah i updated to nightly 25 today. well, then again, i'm doubting myself now. can someone confirm how to install a nightly? i have rom manager premium. i go into download rom. nightlies obviously. select desired nightly. wait for the install. then it prompts me with 3 options, backup, wipe, and wipe dalvik(sp?). then it tells me to reboot into recovery to finish install. is there something in the recovery that i'm supposed to run? i normally just run the update fixes like the camera and torch, 1% batt, etc. am i missing something?

I wiped my data when i installed nightly 20. Haven't wiped it after 24 or 25. I've just been making nandroid and wipin g dalvik. cyanogenmod-7-07092011
it sounds like you're installing old fixes that are not meant for the newer nightlies. That's why I asked you in the post above for the file names of the fixes you're flashing. You're only suppose to be flashing the 2 fixes in my signature. All the others have been built into the nightlies.

Those are the only two I'm flashing. Well and the crt animation
crt animation zip has an old framework. it replaces the framework where the screenshot option is. thats why you are screwin it up. like SyNiK4L said, don't flash it. It's been fixed since nightly #7

Alright so I tried updating to nightly 26 and only flashed the two you told me to. For some reason when I check my about phone, the date on the nightly hasn't changed, still says 07092011. any suggestions?

thats cuz you used my old fix. it replaced the build.prop that shows an older rom date then what you actually have. no harm. just use my new one from now on. link in my signature.

Tried installing nightly 26 again with your all in one fix. Results are the same. No screenshot, and 07092011.
Are you restoring a back up or something?

Try this...
Boot into recovery, format system, wipe data, wipe dalvik, flash newest nightly, flash gapps, flash all in one fix. There ain't no way for that bug to survive that. :)

Nope, I've made some nandroids but never restored one. Guess I'll try wiping everything :/

update: went into mounts and storage, chose format system. wiped data and cache. rebooted so i could go back into rom manager and download the newest nightly again, except my phone wont boot now. stuck on the gray "M" screen.

Once you formatted the system, you erased the partition where the rom is installed. There's nothing there to boot into. That's why my instructions don't say to reboot after formating and wiping. SBF time for you.

oh shoot. i guess i assumed i had to reboot to flash the nightly. oh well. i guess its square 1. for future reference. what am i supposed to do after i format and wipe?
Advanced>Wipe Dalvik
Install from SD Card - The nightly you are flashing
Install from SD Card - GApps
Install from SD Card - All in one fix from razorloves
reboot
