How to capture a log?
The log tool can be enabled through the calculator app.
Open the calculator app and input .19595+=
Select the Log category according to the type of issue you are experiencing.
Refer to the following table for the issue type:
After your selection, the log tool will exit so you can recreate the issue or wait for it to happen.
Try to use the screen recorder to show your issue when possible. If you can't screen record your issue, then please take a screenshot right after the issue has occurred (as a timestamp) so we know where to look in the log.
Navigate back to the logging tool via calculator and Tap "FINISH AND SHARE".
It takes several minutes for the log to generate. A silent notification will tell you once the process is complete. Tap the notification and then the share button to upload the file to Google Drive and share the link with the moderator via PM.
Once you are done producing the log, enter “.09595+=” in the calculator and the log tool will stop as well as deleting all stored log files. Make sure to share via calculator. The files found in internal storage -> asus_log are not the correct files (they are only 1.2kb)
