Re: lenovo K8 Plus - mtklog huge security issue

2017-12-11, 7:10 AM

Here is a quick fix that will prevent the logger to save to device. If the mtklog folder is on your device, delete it, then make a blank file called mtklog with no extensions. files and folders can't have the same name. So the next time the logger tries to save its data, it will fail to create the mtklog folder and just abort. This is what i had to do to stop it on my own device from another company.

What is the Solution for MTK file making The Log File , which is irritating as we cannot keep deleting the log file every now and then , That is consuming huge amount of Space which leads to storage problem . Talking to executive has onely one thing to say , please factory reset but that cannot be solution everytime.

Mtklog files are expanding daily and clearing has to be done daily to save the internal disk space 

Her did the bug report log link

I have tried mostly all workaround solutions, but none of them worked. Except I am unable to create file named mtklog without extension on mobile. 

But sadly, with all tried solution, still the mtklog issue remains. Not sure how to fix it permnantly and whether lenovo customer care at all bothers about it?

Hey , Lenovo don't you think , you need to push one update soon for solving mtklog issue ??? 

You guys keep editing all the messages , better concentrate in developing a good ROM for your devices ...

Hi friends ..I have the solution which has been worked for my set 100 %

Follow the steps

1. Update your handset system in latest version 

2. Activate developer option and turn off the 'Logger buffer Sizes,

3. Delete your 'mtklog' folder in your internal storage 

4. Format your internal storage (before that backup your important data)

5.Restart and enjoy
