DumpViewer

DumpViewer is an on-device logcat / dumpsys viewer.

Build

m -j DumpViewer

Installation

DumpViewer requires some development permissions in order to read logcat and dumpsys. To install, pass the -g option to adb install to give the needed permissions:

adb install -r -g DumpViewer.apk

# More precisely:
adb install -r -g ${ANDROID_PRODUCT_OUT}/data/app/DumpViewer/DumpViewer.apk

Alternatively, you can grant the permissions with pm grant:

pm grant com.android.dumpviewer android.permission.PACKAGE_USAGE_STATS
pm grant com.android.dumpviewer android.permission.READ_LOGS
pm grant com.android.dumpviewer android.permission.DUMP

TODOs

  • Add UID / PID lookup
  • Add color on logcat (by severity)
  • Auto-shrink the header.
