Q. What is a logcat?

Ans. A logcat is a sort of written report for what things(operations like starting processes lot of dev related technical things) the phone is doing at a given time.


this guide shall provide simple step by step method (Will try to be very short and direct)
Why create this guide cause i found a lot of guides on this topic(Really a lot !!!)
But were written in a fairly roundabout manner so here is my attempt to simplify things.

Prerequisites : (Please read before doing anything)



For creating a logcat via computer :

1.ADB(Android Debugging Bridge) you can get a smaller version from here : ADB & logcat tools.zip else you can get it along with android SDK.

For creating a logcat via phone :

1.alogcat/catlog[APP]

OR

2.Terminal Emulator.[APP]



Ok down to business...

Via Computer (ADB) :



very useful cause you can start logcatting(Is there such term) even before booting.

open terminal at the location for ADB example for me its C:/ADB>

so now your teminal should look like this :

Code:
C:/ADB>
now connect your phone via USB and don't forget to tick Android Debugging option under app>development(2.3.x) or Developer Option>usb debugging(4.0.x & above) on your phone

now type this in the terminal
Code:
adb logcat -v long > name of problem.txt
nothing will happen on the terminal don't worry its working to end the logcat press ctrl+c.

you shall have a log file called name of problem.txt or whatever you thought of substituting that name of problem with inside your ADB folder.



Via Phone :



1.Via Terminal Emulator :

its same as for adb except you are already in the shell that is rather than doing adb to reach your phone and then command just enter the command simple

type this in your terminal emulator :
Code:
logcat -v long > name of problem.txt
to finish logging press vol down button + c

you will find a text file on your SD Card.

2.Via logcatting(still don't think its a word) APP

here are the links.
1.CatLog

2.aLogCat(free)
