LiveBoot is an app for rooted devices that shows the logcat and dmesg output on-screen during boot. It has been around since 2014, (then) supporting Android 4.x (or 2011 and Android 2.x if you include its predecessors).
Opening the source
It does some neat tricks, others could learn from it. It's not really in active development anymore (and hasn't been for years), but now and then people nag me to fix it when it breaks, and sometimes I do. Now you can fix it too! A little joy as 2020 finally ends!
Open source but in-app puchases?
Yes, please still buy it. Or press the Freeload button that has been in most of my apps for many years that gives you all the features for free. Or recompile it yourself so it does that.
You can grab actual releases from Google Play or in the XDA thread.
It puts it in the XDA thread.
This hasn't been in active development for a while, and contains code that has been copy/pasted and passed around throughout my projects for many years. It wouldn't surprise me if there's code in here somewhere that was already smelly back in 2011. This is not a shining example of how to build apps in 2020.
Especially if you're primarily familiar with newer devices, there may be some weird constructs with regards to root, but keep in mind this app should still be working on Android's as old as 5.0, and supporting several different root solutions and versions.
I did not go through the code to clean it up before dumping it here. Comments could be outdated or just plain wrong.
If it breaks, you get to keep all the pieces.
Primarily depends on libRootJava and libCFSurface.
