How do i get proper logs?

Well, there are some apps out (e.g. Syslog App) which can help getting usefull logs, but i prefer using adb to get those logs:
  • Logcat (abort/stop logging pressing ctrl + c on your keyboard):
    adb shell logcat > logcat.txt
  • Radio Logcat:
    adb logcat -b radio -v time -d > logcat_radio.log
  • Dmesg:
    adb shell dmesg > dmesg.txt
  • last_kmsg:
    adb shell su -c "cat /proc/last_kmsg" > last_kmsg.txt
  • audit.log:
    (make sure root is enabled!)
    adb root
    adb pull /data/misc/audit/audit.log

Rom installation failed on "error 7" in recovery, what can i do?

Best will be to post a recovery.log. There's an option inside your recovery to create one. You can get the log to your PC using adb:
adb pull /path/to/log/
  If this is not possible for your: tell the whole message you get! There are different "error 7" messages out!
  • it could be you used a recovery for a different device
  • it could be you flashed a file/rom not made for your device
  • it could be your recovery is to old (official CWM is to old, a lot of user still use it)
