How to acquire the device's log file?

Throughout its operation, the Joan device keeps a log that contains information about its hardware, firmware, and actions it is taking. If an error occurs, it will be noted down in this log file.

If your device suddenly stopped working, is having Wi-Fi connection problems, or is no longer responding to touch commands it can be either due to a network-related or hardware-related issue.

So, whenever you experience an issue with the device, supplying this log file to us at will make the process of identifying and resolving the issue much faster.
