    took me a while to solve the screenshot problem too. Sister ended up showing me a youtube video on how to do it

    I took the long way solving it but if you are rooted is as simple as downloading that app ;)

    Lol. I didn't even know that you could capture screenshots with power button + volume down in the One, I always used a shortcut to take them -.-

    Solution

    I figured this out! If you take a screenshot before unlocking, during the format process, it doesn't wipe the screenshots. You can verify this with ADB/Terminal Emulator by running "ls" as root in the pictures folder. Unfortunately these can not be deleted from a booted OS. I rebooted into recovery and deleted them there. Screenshots work again. Good Luck!

    Rooting will not take away the option of taking a screenashot. I have rooted 2 OPO and no problems with screenshots.

    If you read my post, you will see that you have to take a screenshot before rooting for the problem to occur.

    i experienced the same problem. i could be due to wrong data partition 16g to 64g. i just flash the stock rom cm11s again and it solved the problem.

    I had the same issue.

    http://dag.wiee.rs/blog/couldnt-capture-screenshot-on-cyanogenmodandroid

    Solution is to open the File Manager, go to settings and enable Root Access Mode. Then go to /sdcard/Pictures/, rename Screenshots/ to e.g. Screenshots2/ and create a new directory Screenshots/

    You cannot remove the original Screenshots directory though. There's something wrong with the permissions (that you cannot change) and it has hidden files in it (that you cannot remove). Details are in the blog post.

    I'm having the same problem. I try to take a screenshot in app and it says "Couldn't capture screenshot memory in use" I am not rooted. Stock One Plus One. It is in a bank app that I always take a screenshot of deposits for my company to reconcile. Never had any issues with other phones.

    I've now encountered this issue as well... Storage shows 52.47 of 54.87 GB available. Not rooted. I haven't had any horrible issues with the OPO, just little issues like this that get under my skin. I guess it's a fair trade for having such an awesome phone the majority of the time.
