I also have this issue on my k8plus. 

 

Setting log buffer size to off or zero in developer option is not an ideal solution.

It only reduces the speed of increasing file size or keeps the same size but it keeps on storing log details of all activities by overwritting the old data. You can see urself by seeing the log details of the present day. So,developer team resolve this issue . It's over a month :smileymad:

hi all,

i received new OTA update for k8 plus build NMC26. 74-31. so far mtklog issue seems resolved. after update restarted the phone then deleted mtklog folder & so far till now it hasn't created mktlog yet. I think the issue has been fixed but they don't say anything about it in changelog.

 

I think lenovo ppl can't acknoledge officially so they might have fixed it internally.

 

share the details if it resolved for you guys.

 

thks,

maverick

Sorry all, my bad. The issue still not resolved. no solution yet from lenovo. it again started to create the mtklog folder.

so far another update still no fix for the mtklog issue. the internal storage keeps growing if we manually don't delete the folder.

 

No reply from lenovo guys regarding this matter from past 2 OTA updates.

 

Is there any way to push this matter to lenovo developers for possible solution. Let me know

Yes... The mtklog issue is not resolved. Other issues are solved. This issue should be taken in consideration.
