Please note: From Android 4.1 onwards ANY logcat app needs root access in order to show logs.
Logcat Extreme Pro is an enhanced Logcat/Dmesg reader and Logcat recorder which comes with a rich set of features and handy user interface.
New sliding side menus (update 1.4):
the UI has been dramatically improved and reorganized in side menus, swipe from the left side to the right to access the navigation menu and switch between the main features, swipe from the right side to the left to access the list of your saved logcats, from there open, send or delete your logs.
Introducing "Floating Logcat" (update 1.1):
a new wonderful feature powered by StandOut, it allows you to keep the logcat on top right while you're working on your device, perfect for your tests! the logcat is shown inside a window you can move, resize and even minimize, just like a desktop one.
* Read live logcat
* Pause and resume
* Record (even in background)
* Send logs via mail
* Apply filters (priority level, format, etc.)
* Search box for quick filtering
* Many options to configure the logcat
* Read the kernel's debug messages (dmesg)
* UI straightforward, the controls you need at your fingertips
* New "Per-app Logcat" feature!
* Revolutionary "Floating Logcat" feature!
* Floating window resizable even with pintch-to-zoom
- In order to start a new Floating Logcat session tap the last button on the right (bottom bar).
- In order to resize the Floating Logcat drag the bottom-right corner of the window.
Starting from version 1.3, devs can use intent actions and extras in order to launch the
logcat recorder directly from their apps:
"scd.lcexpro.ACTION_REC" start recording
"scd.lcexpro.ACTION_STOP" stop recording and service associated
"scd.lcexpro.EXTRA_FILTER" logcat filter (string, optional), use in conjunction with ACTION_REC
A feature is built-in to test your current configuration without rebooting. The lines shown in test mode may be limited and relatively static, this does not reflect exact boot time behavior as much as it just shows you that it works and how big the text will be.
Note that LiveBoot will only show up after the data partition is mounted. If you need to enter a decryption key or pattern at boot, it will not show up until you have done so.
This app does not only require root, it requires specifically SuperSU version 2.40 or newer, due to how the boot-time code is launched. Alternatively, the app will try to function for otherwise rooted firmwares that support init.d, but this is not officially supported and it cannot be guaranteed to work.
Officially the app supports 4.3+ and newer, but really it is aimed at 5.0 firmwares. Regardless of 4.3, 4.4, or 5.0, the app may work on your device or it may not. I've gotten it to work on a bunch of my own devices on various firmwares, but not on all. Even if the test run functionality works, this does not necessarily mean it will actually work during boot. It usually does, but not always.
This does indeed also mean I cannot guarantee continued operation - even if it works for you today, it may fail your next firmware update. If that is an issue for you, then you should definitely not update to Pro.
The risk of bootloops is extremely low, but not completely non-existent. Should a bootloop occur, removing either the app's APK or /system/su.d/0000liveboot through recovery should fix the problem.
The app writes to /system, as such your firmware must allow this. There is no recovery-based install option at this time.
There's an in-app purchase to upgrade to Pro, which supports my developments, and unlocks the transparency option as well as logcat buffer and format selection.
Of course, if you have one of the paid variants of the old live logcat or live dmesg boot animations from all those years ago installed, this will also enable Pro mode.
Like some of my other apps these days, if you don't have Google Play but still managed to install the APK, this will also enable Pro mode.
Last but not least, if you simply don't want to pay for it, there's also a button to enable Pro mode.
If /system/su.d/0000liveboot.script exists (chmod 0644, not 0700 like other files in /system/su.d/ !), this script will be run instead of logcat and dmesg, and its output will be shown in white (stdout) and red (stderr).

Background service is collecting logs and sending them to destination IP and UDP port. You can send logs to desktop computer through home wifi network, or to server with public IP or cname.
If you want to send log to email (or share it different way), click "Share log" from menu and choose your favourite app to send with.
Receive logs from your phone even if it is not connected to computer.
To listen logs use this python script http://code.google.com/p/logcatudp/source/browse/test/listener.py
$ ./listener.py 192.168.1.10 10009
You can also use your desktop syslog server to receive logs.

Jelly Bean compatibility issue: application is not compatible with Android Jelly Bean/4.1. Read more: http://code.google.com/p/logcatudp/issues/detail?id=6

And you can collect logcat by background process.
The feature of this application is described below.
- A long message of log will be displayed in multiple-line.
Therefore, the message of log can be checked at a glance.
- A search character string and a tag character string are recorded as a history.
later, you can refer to this history so you can input easily.
- In the background, you can collect logs.
There is a filter specification function for narrowing down collecting logs.
And there is an notification function at the time of detecting the character string specified beforehand.
- Starting background collection automatically at boot end is enabled. (Auto start on BOOT end)
- In the log detailed screen (that appears at long touch of a log line), a filter setting, cooperation with a search function, and cooperation with a mailer are possible.
- Added 'Menu Bar' which is located on the left end of a screen.
- Radio log and events log can be collected.
- Cut filter by tag is possible.
- Set of filters can be memorized.
- Narrowing is possible.
- Maximum of buffer size of reading from system is 10,000 lines.
(Note : maximum of buffer size of reading from file is 30,000 lines.)
You select how old of backups and/or how many you want to keep and then forgot about it.
Ignores backups with custom names. So anything not like 2011-02-25-14.29.23, 2011-02-220.127.116.11 or ScheduledBackup-2011-02-25-14.29.23 will be left alone during cleaning.
Run once and then forget about it. It'll automatically do cleans on boot from then onwards.
Excellent if you like to install the CyanogenMod nightlies every day or for those who like to run scheduled backups.
Want more options/features? Send me an email about what you want.
•Root (Android 4.2+ only)
•ClockWorkMod or TWRP (To make the backups. ROM Manager Janitor doesn't actually use it)
•ROM Manager (Since this is a cleanup tool for ROM Manager ;)

Got any other comments or complaints? Send me an Email.
Q: This wallpaper seems to use a lot of CPU. I thought you said it was efficient?
A: It is, but not at drawing, which only happens when you are looking at the home screen. So under normal usage cases it's very efficient over 99% of the time.
Q: I like System Status Live Wallpaper, or SeePU better cause of feature X. Are you going to add feature X?
A: If anyone wants feature X, just let me know and it will probably happen. The more people ask, the more important I know it is, and the more I'll prioritize it over other features.
