Android Logs

Post Posted: May 17, 15 06:11

Have any of you extracted logs from a rooted Android device? I need to know what the *default* format Android stores its logs is. If a date is July 24, 2013, does it appear as


Does anyone here know?

And secondly, does each log file contain a standard extension such as *.log?

Thank you all.

Did you try logcat, dumpsys, dmesg commands to extract logs from rooted android devices?

I'm not sure what kind of log buffer you're looking for but you can always try and run:
logcat -b radio -v time -d

This will dump all of the radio buffer log and print out the timestamps of each event. Also, the buffer (-b) can be changed to your liking.
