ShootMe Works on Non-Rooted T-Mobile MyTouch 3G Slide, As Well


That same security hole that plagued the HTC EVO 4G (which allowed root-only application ShootMe to go about its business as usual) has been discovered to work for non-rooted MyTouch 3G Slides. It was discovered when a few of our members over at the Slide section at were trying to compare speed test results and a member asked how people were able to grab screens on their devices.


We’re not sure how much of an indication this is of the device’s overall security, but if it’s anything like the EVO’s problem (that’s since been patched and was once believed to be a Sprint-only Sense problem), then T-Mobile and HTC will want to start plugging away at getting these holes taken care of.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  3. easy screenshots are nice but android has to be a secure platform

  4. Works great on mt3g slide(not rooted)

  5. I’m not getting this story at all. What in the world does root mean and why does this mean theres a security hole on the MT3GS ?


  6. @going_home

    Root is superuser access in Linux. This story means superuser is accessible when it’s supposed to be locked out.

  7. rooting is like hacking or jailbreaking.
    If you re-read this then you’ll notice they never said the MT3GS had a hole but that the application that only works on rooted phones works on a factory slide

  8. Works perfect on EVO with no update and unrEVOked installed! Killer app…been wanting this ability for weeks. Kudos to the chefs. Wifi Tether aint bad either with unrEVOked installed. No ROM hassles and all the fun for those who dont want to risk the real ROOT.
