0. Make sure that you're connected to the internet.
1. Go to System > Settings > Add-ons
2. Select Get Add-ons
3. Bring up the context menu (done by highlighting the option and pressing c on my remote control) on Add-ons and choose Force Refresh
4. Select Add-ons
5. Select Program Add-ons > XBMC Log Uploader > Install
6. Wait for this to download and be marked Enabled
7. Select XBMC Log Uploader > Configure
8. Add your email address
9. Go all the way back to Settings then System > Debugging and enable debug logging

Please can someone update the instructions that aren't correct?

What about the part of ACTUALLY getting the logs?

10. Go all the way back to Home Screen
11. Go to Programs
12. Select XBMC Log Uploader, this will actually grab the logs, send them to and send the configured e-mail address a link to the log.

And in case Log uploader is down or you want to do it manually for whatever reason.
- Current session log: /sdcard/Android/data/com.pivos.tofu/files/.tofu/temp/xbmc.log
- Last session log (the only way to get a complete log for a crash): /sdcard/Android/data/com.pivos.tofu/files/.tofu/temp/xbmc.old.log


- You can access these files using the Android file manager of your choice (or install an SSH server to access the XS file system remotely).
- Don't post the actual log on the forums instead put it on and post a link to it.

II. TOFU OS logs:

OS logs are dmesg and logcat (captured if the issue doesn't cause system to fully crash ).

Use SysLog app.


(kernel log is dmesg and main log is logcat), app will save the logs into internal storage and then you can copy them (/sdcard/SysLog/)


- Don't post the actual log on the forums instead put it on and post a link to it.
