iPhone Crashlogs

This one, I’ve taken from the Brightkite iPhone beta Google Group.

This should help several people who aren’t yet privy to this information. Your iPhone or iPod Touch’s iTunes backup process (the thing that some people tend to skip) dumps your device’s crash logs to a folder in your home directory. Here’s how to get to those logs.


  • Mac OS X: <your-home-directory>/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/MobileDevice/<device-name>/<brightkite-crash-log>
  • Windows XP: C:\Documents and Settings\<user-name>\Application Data\Apple computer\Logs\CrashReporter\<device-name>\<brightkite-crash-log>
  • Windows Vista: C:\Users\<user-name>\AppData\Roaming\Applecomputer\Logs\CrashReporter\MobileDevice\<device-name>\<brightkite-crash-log>

If you can’t find either of those, the logs should be on your device anyway. If it’s jailbroken, your logs can be found under:

  • /var/mobile/Library/Logs/CrashReporter/<brightkite-crash-log>
