Next Update/ Trick – While testing on one of our devices, removing phone once the booster mode started, still recorded the screen.. we even tried closing the app and opening it again to record.. it was still able to record videos.. you may try this on your phone too to enable booster mode once, and then use the phone to directly record until next reboot.
