I'm doing this simple guide on how to achieve a logcat when an issue is received
It's very simple but some people on here don't know how to do one.

1. Download Android SDK from here:
Code:
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
2. Extract Android SDK to any area

3. Once Android SDK is extracted, be sure to put the path and download Android SDK Tools:

Examples:

Windows
Open your start menu, right click on 'My Computer' and select 'Properties'
Once another window opens go to 'Advanced settings'
Followed by selecting 'Environmental Variables'
Look for PATH and enter the following:
Code:
C:\Android-sdk-windows; C:\Android-sdk-windows\platform-tools; C:\Android-sdk-windows\tools;
Now java will need to be installed
Go to the following link:
Code:
http://www.java.com/en/
Go into Android SDK folder and open 'SDK Manager.exe'
Only check 'Android SDK Tools' and Android SDK Platform-tools

Linux
Go into your Home folder and Press CTRL+H (This is done to show hidden folders and files)
Look for the file '.bashrc'
Open it and put the following or similar:
Code:
export PATH=$PATH:~/android/sdk
export PATH=$PATH:~/android/sdk/platform-tools
export PATH=$PATH:~/android/sdk/tools
You will need to add something for any devices to be recognized:
Open terminal and enter:
Code:
sudo gedit /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
Enter the following in the file:
Code:
SUBSYSTEM=="usb", SYSFS{idVendor}=="0bb4", MODE="0666"
Now save and close the file, in terminal enter:
Code:
sudo chmod +x /etc/udev/rules.d/51-android.rules
Now you will need to install java
Open terminal and enter:
Code:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ferramroberto/java
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install sun-java6-jdk sun-java6-jre sun-java6-plugin
Now that everything is installed
Open terminal either type:
Code:
android
OR, if that doesn't work
Code:
cd ~/android/sdk/tools
./android
4. How to do a logcat:
This is very simple as now you have installed Android SDK and ADB

First connect the device via USB to your computer
Be sure to have usb debugging enabled

To verify the device is connected type:
Code:
adb devices

Windows

Open Command Prompt
Enter the following (Yes there's a space in between the '>'):

Code:
adb logcat > logcat.txt

Linux

Open Terminal

Enter the following (Yes there's a space in between the '>'):
Code:
adb logcat > logcat.txt
*The logcat.txt is your logcat that you can copy and paste for developers

5. Now that you've created a logcat copy and paste it to:

Why not OpenJDK? The Android stuff works fine with it

When it comes to just adb I don't really care for openjdk but when it comes to compiling a rom I don't want it near my pc

When I write

adb logcat > logcat.txt

answer is:

Access is denied. Why?

May be, but I don't see the point since it's an EASY GUIDE.

Adb logcat part tells you before to open terminal.

Is that really hard to follow?
