What I need is to figure out what "hot keys" (or Touchscreen variant of that) saves a screen snapshot. Google does not help much here due to "Touch" being such a generic word. And don't get me started about mostly-useless mobileread search function (unless I have not learned how to use it effectively yet).

I remember yifanlu saying somewhere something about touching the screen and holding the button for awhile, but I could not locate that post, and my experiments to rediscover the method did not succeed.

For now, I am going to go back to writing "hacky" code that uses the eips command to provide display capability, until I discover a way that will let me trigger a framebuffer display update after modifying its contents. At least that way, if I need more memory, I can kill the framework and cvm after it launches my native app, giving me more of what I need. My app can restart the framework when it exits.
