I want to read logs of Android devices having stuck at the boot logo, but I don't have ADB access.

Is it possible to read logs displayed by logcat in recovery by mounting /system partition?

The files (if they are considered as such) to which logs are written by the device are not in /system but in /dev/log.

These "files" are reset at every boot, so unless the device you have has a boot-time script that automatically saves logs to a file in, say, /sdcard, there is sadly no way to retrieve the logs you want while in recovery.


With TWRP, going Advanced → Copy Log could be a solution.
