Boneyard Beta 2
Zenphone users, you are now operational.
Now, there's tweaks here, but the biggest thing I've been working on is the various crashes. I don't manifest them at all, so I am completely reliant on you to give me information about them. Android is a persnickety system, but one thing it does MUCH better than iOS is it'll let you grab information for me when you crash.
So, if your copy of boneyard crashes, what I'd like you to do is get a copy of the LOGCAT logs from
your phone, upload them somewhere, and give me a link. How do you get LOGCAT files? Here's how, kindly provided by _LEEDER from the Solomon's Keep beta:
* * *
does something that it isn't supposed to do. Developers depend heavily
on this especially when the reason behind an error isn't clear.
Instructions: (I recommend reading the whole thing through once before following along)
Enable "USB debugging" on your android device under developer
options. If you don't have developer options enabled, go to Settings
> About > (Software Information) > press "Build number" 7
Connect your Android device to your PC.
Install Android Studio on your PC, there are instructions on how
to install the drivers to your device based on Windows version. https://developer.android.com/studio/run/oem-usb.html (1.9 gbs)
Download and Extract an Android Debug Bridge on your PC (adb executable)
https://developer.android.com/studio/releases/platform-tools.html (7 mbs)
Go to the folder where you previously extracted the adb
executable, it should be called platform-tools. Shift+Right Click an
empty space and click "Open command window here."
In the command prompt, type "adb devices" to check if your device is properly attached.
Type "adb logcat > logcat.txt". The command prompt might say
"- waiting for device -" or it might not say anything, it doesn't matter
as long as the device is attached.
Now, you will try to replicate/recreate the error (or whatever)
on your device. Remember to keep it connected to the PC at all times.
When you finish, you can close the command prompt
and there should be a text file called logcat. You can email the file or
upload it to dropbox.
Tip: When performing the error, try to complete it in as little time as possible to reduce the size of the .txt file.
