Re: lenovo K8 Plus - mtklog huge security issue

@meanjan

 

I suggested macrodroid to the forum members. It doesn't look like Lenovo is least bothered with providing any solution. 

 

They'll just launch a new phone after six months. 

What a dumb device and even worse .. what poor support. 

 

Anyways... Good news is that I had set a macro to delete the mtklog folder every 6 hours. After a week, I tried to test the device again. So I uninstalled macrodroid and the mtklog was not being generated. 

 

I recommend this... 

1. Set the log buffer size to off. 

2. Update the security patch NMC26.74-24 (the mtklog will still be generated .. as witnessed by me and most folks who have done the update)

3. Use macrodroid for a week or so with the schedule I suggested. (setting a task to delete mtklog every 6 or 12 hours. Set a day/time trigger to activate the task)

4. After a week, try checking the mtklog folder after uninstalling macrodroid. If it's not there... Lucky you... If it's still there.... Then get macrodroid back on your device.

Hi,
Can you please describe more details how to do "Set the log buffer size to off."
Also I have updated the Patch NMC26.74-24 (the mtklog will still be generated.Now my Phone memory only 4 GB left

Also If I manually delete MTKlog folder then will it create any issue?

I have installed macrodroid but cannot understand how to configure,please suggest a better solution.

LASTLY MY BIG QUESTION TO LENOVO SUPPORT WHY YOU ARE NOT PROVIDE US CONCRETE SOLUTION AS SO MANY USER FACING THE ISSUES STILL!!! WHY YOU ARE NOT RELEASING NEW UPDATED SECURITY PATCH FOR THIS?

Hi Dwaipayan

 

Go to settings. Scroll down to about phone. Tap on about phone seven or eight times in quick succession. This will enable the developer mode. 

 

Now you will have the option to alter the log buffer in the newly available developer options. 

 

Macrodroid is a classy solution if you want the mtklog taken out systematically and to automate this task. I am not sure how you mean a better solution. It's fairly straightforward to set up a macro. (I am Sorry I am not into coding or I would have definitely worked out a patch for this)

 

Just install macrodroid. On the home screen on launching the app, there is an option to add a macro. 

 

Click on the trigger option. Select day/time option. Select all options from Monday to Sunday. Then select a time you wanna run. Next select the action. You wanna select file action and under that you select delete. Select delete all files. Ignore the constraints tab and save the macro. 

 

Set up a macro to delete mtklog and another one to delete mobile login (which is inside mtklog)

 

Set up more macros to delete the folders in mobile log too. In all you will need three or four macros. 

 

I have set up these tasks to run in the same macro. So it's like one macro performing four automated tasks. Four times a day. PM me for more clarity. 

 

Forget these guys at Lenovo. They're not gonna own this up. This is a crappy device. Next thing I am doing is selling this for whatever I get and pick a Redmi 4 or Nokia 6. 

 

Never coming back to Lenovo (and this is from a guy who has been using Lenovo phones for 5 years and laptops for 10 years )

Why is this happening? My internal memory is consumed by mtklog folder. It consumes my internal memory 11.1GB. Is there any solution for this problem? When I tried to delete the mtklog folder, the phone itself creating the folder again and consuming the internal storage.

Hi Rocky,

 

You have to read the previous posts. Nobody from Lenovo is going to help. Either sell your device or follow the steps mentioned in previous posts. Macrodroid is a non standard solution but it will keep the storage from being cluttered.... 

 

Regards,

Jerry
