IntroDuring application development, taking screenshots of the Android environment on your RIoTboard would be a very useful ability to have right? Most Android devices have an easy method for taking screenshots on the device (usually pushing the home button and the power button simultaneously). Since the RIoTboard lacks both of these buttons we have to use an alternative method, the Android Device Monitor (ADM). The instructions within this guide will be catered towards Windows users however the process should be easily adaptable to suit both Mac and Linux users.
Acquire the ADM
The ADM is included in the Android SDK but is also available as a standalone tool from Android SDK | Android Developers.
Within the extracted zip file there should be a folder named "tools" open this and ensure that "monitor.bat" is contained inside. You will need to use this soon.
