iPhone 4S Jailbreak: Chronic Dev Team Collects 10M Crash Reports

An untethered jailbreak solution for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is getting closer and closer. Thanks to new crash reporter software released last week, the Chronic Dev Team is hard at work collecting submissions from iPhone users everywhere. 10 million in one week to be exact, which will help the team identify possible exploits for a new iOS 5 jailbreak.

It seems even if iPhone users have not jailbroken their iPhones that supporting the jailbreak community is a popular pastime. CDevReporter can be downloaded directly from Chronic Dev Team to help send information from your device that will help them find the next big jailbreak avenue.

iPhone Crash Reporter Helps iOS Jailbreak Efforts

The cat and mouse game between Apple and jailbreakers never stops. Chronic Dev Team announced they had already found several exploits that could possibly be used in a future iOS 5 jailbreak, however Apple quickly patched these exploits before the public release of the firmware. One of Apple's weapons in the arsenal against jailbreaking is the log of crash reports that is automatically sent from iTunes that serves to identify possible exploits.

Chronic Dev Team is trying to stop Apple from finding out about these potential jailbreak opportunities by circumventing the automatic crash reports from iOS. Efforts to complete an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak are in progress, and Chronic Dev is asking for everyone's help to keep potential exploits away from Apple.

Limera1n and Greenpois0n iPhone Jailbreak Tools

The jailbreak community has been active lately. Thanks to a surprise release of the limera1n jailbreak tool from Geohot, the release of Greenpois0n was delayed. Now both hacks use the same unpatchable bootrom exploit and are available to the iOS device-owning public.

In the meantime, the SHAtter exploit initially planned for Greenpois0n has been shelved for future use. Apple will surely fix the bootrom exploit in the next round of iOS hardware, however this time the jailbreak developers have a countermeasure ready for action.
