    Hi All,

    In the previous version of iPhone OS I used to be able to hold down the home button press the top button (sleep/off button) and it would flash white, taking a screenshot.

    Since upgrading to OS 3.0 I don't seem to be able to do this.

    Has it changed? I know that killing an app has changed to holding the sleep button till the off sliders shows then holding the home button, (so that they could add voice control to the holding of the home button)

    Actually, it's officially holding the power button and hitting the Home button, but it used to work either way. With OS 3.0, it's gotten less liberal, so you might actually have to hold power first, or it thinks you're trying to activate voice control.

    So, short answer: Hold the power button down and then hit the Home button, and there you go. ;)
