Easy Fix for Logcat Blues on Jelly Bean Ports

Jelly Bean seems to be on everyone’s mind, as of late. The latest and greatest to come out of Google’s sweet treat factory is ravaging the site with its popularity and feature-packed nature. As such, ports are flying left, right, and center onto most devices (old and new) on the site. However, as is the case with most new OS versions, there are also complications and issues that need to be overcome in order to make the best out of the new release.

One of the bugs (not really a bug per se) that has plagued a few devices, including the Motorola Defy, is the fact that logcat apps are blocked by the OS itself, as Google seems to have added an extra set of permissions that these apps do not normally need in order to function. This is particularly important for ROM devs and people who need to know exactly what went wrong and what triggered it.

XDA Forum Member rtk217 found a simple way of granting said permissions via terminal emulator. Needless to say, your device must be rooted to do this, since you will be requesting superuser permissions through the terminal. This is a permission issue, which means that if you use more than one application for logging purposes, you will need to repeat the process for every app. The system must grant the app the required permission to work.

Please take this for a spin and get your apps working again. After all, we all need to provide a logcat from time to time.

so as you may noticed catlog /logcat/ alogcat and such are not working properly or at all.
that is because google added a new permission request from programs which they dont usually request.

You can find more information in the original thread.

What Do You Do with All of Your Old Photos?

Smartphone cameras have advanced so tremendously over the past few years that they have almost completely replaced point and shoot digital cameras for the most of us.

Do you store them on an external hard-drive or keep them backed up to an online cloud service like Flickr? Let us know what your favorite way of storing old photos is and why.

Diving into the April 2015 Material Design Update

Before the release of Android 5.0 Lollipop, the Holo Design guidelines served as the official reference for Android design, right from IceCream Sandwich to KitKat. However, updates to the guidelines were few and far between, leading to a lack of synchronization between Android design and current UI/UX trends. Google seems to have learned from their mistake the last time around, and earlier this week, a significant update was released for the Material Design guidelines, marking the second revision in less...

New Cyanogen Partnerships Bring Privacy Concerns

New Privacy concerns have emerged regarding Cyanogen’s latest announcements, primarily the inclusion of email app Boxer and that of a multitude of Microsoft apps, including Bing services, Skype, OneDrive, OneNote, Outlook, and Microsoft Office. The concerns arise when you look at both announcements together. At face value they may appear to be the beginning of Cyanogen’s plan to “take Android away from Google,” however there is certainly something more nefarious occurring. Along side the partnership with Microsoft, Cyanogen also recently announced...
