Getting alogcat working on JellyBean

Since Jellybean the only logs that applications will be able to see is their own since jellybean updated its security to prevent other applications from view them.

Though this can be fixed. what you will need are the following.

Titanium backup root

once you installed alogcat you will need to open up titanium backup root. This requires you having root privileges. Once in titanium backup you will go to backup/restore, find alogcat, click on it, go to the special features, and on the bottom click convert to system app.

the will create alogcat as a system app for you and then it will have the rights to read the logs for all the apps.

Thanks for reading,
