After January 2024 update the app isnt functional and freezes during collection and exportion of logs no matter how many nor their size. Recommend reverting to prior version with manual install via f droid.

I have had this phone for about 2-4 years and a few months ago it stared freezing uncontrollably and some people suggested this app but I think it might made the freezing a bit worse. It froze while I was reviewing this too.

Uhm, I can't see wrong in this app, this app really work (for rooted device) I use this app to see if my app (does rooted app I also use) does it really running perfectly and I see no wrong, and everything on "live log" shows what I opened so, just you really need root, though it's 2020, I still use root on my Android 9 phone for costume ROM, root apps and some CPU/GPU tweaks
