Re: lenovo K8 Plus - mtklog huge security issue

2018-01-11, 10:26 AM

Found a solution it's working for me.

 

1.You have to create a new file with the name 'mtklog'  with no extension in your pc. (My reply below explains how to create this file)

2.Connect your phone to the pc and open internal storage.

3.In your phone open file manager and delete the mtklog folder.

4.Now this step you have to do it very quickly,From your pc copy the 'mtklog' file to the internal storage.

 

 You have to do it very quickly, because within minutes mtklog folder will be recreated after deleting it from phone.Before that happens we have to copy our 'mtklog' file to the internal storage.

 

Since there is already a file with name 'mtklog' the folder will not be recreated again.

 At first you have to turn on the option to see extension of files in your pc,then delete the extension part.

 

eg create a new text file 'mtklog'. If you turn on the option you can see the '.txt' extension.Delete the '.txt' part.

now you will get mtklog file with no extension,copy that file to the internal storage.

 

1. Turn on file name extensions

 

 

 

2. Delete  '.txt'  part.

RevantS, thanks a lot! The fix worked for me. A new log gets created real quick, so I had to use the adb shell to do it.

 

Here's what I did:

- Enable USB Debugging. Use adb shell.

- rm -r /sdcard/mtklog/mobilelog && touch /sdcard/mtklog/mobilelog

- Disable USB debugging.

 

Lenovo, it looks like your devs forgot to disable logging in the production ROM. Please fix this via an OTA update.
