Finding shutdown event in Android bug reports



  • My Phone which runs on Android 11 has been crashing frequently. This happens randomly - while attending a call or playing a video.

    I have tried to report it to my manufacturer multiple times to no avail. So, I decided to take and analyse the android Bug report in order to understand what is causing the issue. The bug report generates a zip file - which consists of a txt file containing logs.

    Is there any generic message which is logged by Android before initiating a shutdown? Or is there any other way - any bug report analysis tool in which I can isolate the events around the crash ?



  • You could link your phone to Android Studio. It has a logcat display that shows exceptions from everything, not just your app. If your phone resets while connected, you'll have a running log of everything up to the reset. In android 11, it natively supports wireless adb so you can do this wirelessly.
