Publisher Description

A simple open-source tool for quickly taking and sharing system logs.

Root is required for Android 4.1+, and recommended for all versions.
Log types supported:
* Kernel logs (dmsg)
* Last kernel log (last_kmsg, if device supports it)
* Main log (Logcat)
* Modem log
* Event logs
* SELinux audit logs
After taking logs, it compresses them into a single zip, and allows you to share or upload them right away - great for helping debug system issues.
New in v2.0.0: Support for viewing the current system logs in near-real time.
You can also include notes within the zip, and append up to 10 characters to the file name.
New feature in v1.2: Grep the logs for a string. This will run the logs through grep before adding them to the zip. This is case sensitive! It will also automatically add a line to the end of the notes describing which logs and what string was used.
