Log await

An action block that await a message logged by an app or system component.

The fiber will pause until a matching message has been logged.

On Android 13+ the ”read sensitive log data” privilege requires user confirmation for every usage, this requirement can be avoided by choosing a Logcat workaround in settings.

An alternative to this block that is to use the ADB shell command or Shell command superuser block to execute: logcat -T1 -m1 <tag or *>:<V|D|I|W|E|F> -e <message> --uid=<package uid>
