I got myself an Android dev phone from Huawei. The Ideos X3 is a simple but yet feature-full Android device and since a local coffee shop (yup, no kidding) is selling it for 49€ I went ahead and bought it.
After testing a few of my apps on the device I realized that the LogCat was empty. I thought that it was the common LogCat problem when you have more that one device or emulator running but apparently it was something else. After googling a bit I found this very useful thread on xda-developer that reveils a secret service menu with a lot of options.
and enable kernel logging.
