Re: [londroid] Reading Android Panic Logs?

From: user 1.
Sent on: Saturday, December 24, 2011 1:44 PM
Another thing I've noticed in the logs before a crash is messages like

[masked]:30:46.663: ERROR/DATA(571): RIL response handle in wrong
phone! Expected CDMA RIL request and get GSM RIL request.

As far as I can tell, that's a message from
com.android.internal­.telephony.cdma - surely nothing which should be
called on a GSM device?

Oh well - time to look for another QWERTY Android phone...
