How to capture logs

Taking logs for bug reports

These instructions will generate a logcat file which you can then attach to a bug report. That file basically consists of a log of system messages, including stack traces when the device throws an error, and debug messages from apps.

With a computer

  1. Open Command Prompt (Windows) or Terminal (Linux/macOS).
  2. Connect your device via cable or over WiFi.
  3. Type adb logcat -d > logcat.txt. This will save the log to logcat.txt.

    Additionally, the radio buffer can be viewed or stored with logcat. If needed or requested, type adb logcat -db radio > radio.txt to save it to radio.txt.
