Lumberjack Brings Us Tablet-Optimized System Logging

Untitled-1

Comparisons aside, we’ve all experienced the occasional application or system crash on our Android devices. In fact, it seems as if the more we tinker, the more these things occur. In order to help our developers more efficiently find a solution, we often provide them with system-generated log files.

Previously, we covered a way of generating log files without connecting to a computer. This made things easier by allowing us to take system logs anywhere. Now thanks to work by XDA Recognized Developer solarnz (of Xoom fame), we have a tablet-optimized way to do so.

Designed from the ground-up to be optimized for Android 3.0 or greater, Lumberjack cuts the pain out of generating logs. (Yes, I know—bad pun.) While the application works on any device rocking Honeycomb or newer—phones included—it truly shines on the large screens of tablets.

In the words of the developer:

Lumberjack is a useful application for application developers, Android custom rom developers and users alike.

This will allow you to see the live logs on your device, but also gives you the option to export the files to your favourite application such as Gmail or Dropbox.

Unlike similar applications, this was designed with Honeycomb and Ice Cream Sandwich tablets and phones in mind.

Logs this application displays & exports:
* Logcat (main & system)
* Events Logcat
* Radio Logcat
* Dmesg
* Last_kmsg
* /system contents
* Loaded modules
* Mounted filesystems

Note: this application is for Honecomb and Ice Cream Sandwich devices ONLY.

As they say, “Logcat or GTFO.” Those with devices rocking Android 3.0 or greater can get their hands on Lumberjack by proceeding to the application thread.
