 How can I test if there's a ContentProvider for a Uri ?

I'm currently doing a query on it and checking for a null cursor, but
that generates an error in the system log each time, which I don't
like to do.

You should be able to use methods on PackageManager for that.

1. Why do screenshot utilities require rooting?

Why do Android screenshot utilities only work on rooted devices? Linux
distributions and desktop environments provide user-space screen
capture tools. Why can't Android? I wonder what are the technical
issues, if any, that prevent this.

The only user-space procedure I am aware of, i.e. installing about 1
GB worth of development tools on a PC, hooking it to an Android device
via USB, and disabling some of its funzionality (e.g. SD card access),
is not user-friendly.

This is useful so that the user doesn't need to do it manually.
