Android Internals Debugging tricks and tips

Short Form


Just like any other Operating Systems, Android's Logging mechanism can be hard to interpret and makes the debugging a complex task. For the past couple of months, I have been faced with some similar challenges and I believe I did learn about few tools and tricks which helped me debug the issues more efficiently. In this presentation, I would like to share my experience with others.


In this we’ll discuss:
- General Android OS Logging Mechanism
- We’ll learn about how to use tools like adb, logcat, DDMS, Dumpsys and some other useful tools
- We’ll learn about Collecting Kernel Crash information and how to interpret them.
- We will also demo and walkthrough these tools wherever possible.
