There is a very quick way to find out which line cause the crash in logcat,

Generally, if some native service crashes, look in the crash log in logcat like this:

I/DEBUG ( 2253): *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ***

I/DEBUG ( 2253): Build fingerprint: 'freescale/sabresd_6dq/sabresd_6dq:4.0.4/R13.3-rc3/eng.b18293.20120710.124535:user/test-keys'

I/DEBUG ( 2253): pid: 3043, tid: 3080 >>> /system/bin/mediaserver <<<

I/DEBUG ( 2253): signal 11 (SIGSEGV), code 1 (SEGV_MAPERR), fault addr deadbaad

I/DEBUG ( 2253): r0 deadbaad r1 00000001 r2 a0000000 r3 00000000

I/DEBUG ( 2253): r4 00000000 r5 00000027 r6 00bfd370 r7 40c1ef18

I/DEBUG ( 2253): r8 00004349 r9 00000000 10 000003f5 fp 00000000

I/DEBUG ( 2253): ip ffffffff sp 418876a0 lr 400ff1b5 pc 400fb91c cpsr 60000030

I/DEBUG   ( 2253):  ip ffffffff  sp 418876a0  lr 400ff1b5  pc 400fb91c  cpsr 60000030

 

We can see it’s possibly related to some code that we debugged, but don’t know exactly where or which line of code,

Android has a tool to convert this log to a more precise log. As a quick example, if you got this crash in logcat:

F/libc ( 3043): Fatal signal 11 (SIGSEGV) at 0xdeadbaad (code=1)

I/DEBUG ( 2253): *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** *** ***

You can see it’s related to which lib, but don’t know which line.

So, let’s go to your source code, for example:

mydroid;

after do

$. build/envsetup.sh$ lunch sabresd_6dp-eng

 

$ development/scripts/stack

 

Then you have a prompt:

Reading native crash info from stdin

The you just copy all the crash log in above to this prompt.

And then Key in EOF (CTRL+D) in this prompt.

You will get output like this:

So, you get more reason logs.

Note:

  1. The Android directory must have built once.
  2. The crash log better aligns with your Android build environment.
