I'm worried about some activities showing up in logcat, but the "Application" field is empty on every entry. Is there some way to get this populated?

WalletGuns and GnsSdk are related, but I can't identify what app is throwing the errors.

  • p.s. the font here still sucks. – Devil's Advocate Aug 31 '17 at 16:55
  • You can copy-paste directly from locat here for easier reading/formatting. I also think there's an export option that will dump the log to a local text file. Just FYI. – CzarMatt Aug 31 '17 at 17:52
  • The content of the log isn't the point of the question though. The point is to show the empty "Application" column. – Devil's Advocate Aug 31 '17 at 17:53

    I was replying to your comment about the font - which I assumed was a dig at the font in the screenshot (which is, hard to read). – CzarMatt Aug 31 '17 at 17:55

    Oh no, it was in reference to the ongoing issue with the Android Enthusiasts font. android.meta.stackexchange.com/questions/2297/… – Devil's Advocate Aug 31 '17 at 17:56

I know it's not very explicit, but for production ROMs, applications will need to have set the debuggable attribute in their Android Manifest to true.

<application android:debuggable="true"
   ... />

Otherwise, no Application tag will appear.

So, probably, the developers for the apps in question have either ignored the attribute (default is false), or specified the attribute as false explicitly.

  • Good to know, but literally no events (tens of thousands) have this field populated. I think I'm missing something else. – Devil's Advocate Aug 31 '17 at 18:23
  • Generally, debug builds (apps) will spit out far more logcat information. Release builds are stripped of their logs automatically. Wish I had a better solution for you. – CzarMatt Aug 31 '17 at 18:26
