Hi i cant use the new logcat with latest studio and there is no option to go back to old one in exerimental so i downloaded old flamingo but when i open any project i get error

The project is using an incompatible version (AGP 8.1.4) of the Android Gradle plugin. Latest supported version is AGP 8.0.2
See Android Studio & AGP compatibility options.

but studio cant download it so how do i fix this as i cant stand the new one you cant even do printout of get errors it makes troubleshooting immpossible any help would be great thanks as atm i cant develop

The big logcat change seems to have happened more than a year ago. Is https://alexzh.com/new-logcat-5-features-for-effective-android-app-debugging/ what you're talking about?

If Android Studio has upgraded your project to something that earlier versions can't handle, can't you take a backup of your project from before that update, and use that instead?

But in general, I'd advise to accept that software changes, and get used to it. Getting stuck with an obsolete version is not really feasible in the long run.

I don't use Android Studio, so I don't know how bad usability could be for something this simple, but as for debugging, have you tried using breakpoints instead?

thanks for suggestion but i have just excepeted to learn to use new logcat the reason i dont get printouts is System.out.println() does not work with it i must use Log.d("Tag",  "string");
 
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
