  • Chronic Dev Team Releases Crash Data Recovery Tool for Exploit Discovery - Lend a Hand

    The Chronic Dev Team released a crash data recovery tool that is useful for collecting crash reports that may help with future exploits.

    As hinted by Joshua Hill (@p0sixninja) a few times on his Twitter profile over the past couple of weeks, the Chronic Dev Team has been working on something behind the scenes, unrelated to an actual iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. Although the sensationalism in Josh's recent tweet made it sound like a jailbreak, it is not the case. Instead, it is a crash data recovery tool which is a potential component for discovering new and useful iOS exploits - a stepping stone towards better and faster exploits.

    According to the blog post on the Greenpois0n website, Apple pushed hard and patched a few critical exploits between iOS 5 betas on October 12, crippling the team's progress and ability to release an iOS 5 untethered jailbreak at this time. The team is fighting back by issuing weapons of mass exploitation - a tool for users to send useful crash reports to the team.

    The Chronic Dev Team has built and released an application (known as the CDev Reporter) that pulls crash reports off your iOS device and sends them to the Chronic Dev Team's servers. In the process, your iTunes configuration is changed so that diagnostic reports are no longer sent to Apple. This prevents further connection with Apple in order to ensure crash reports are gathered appropriately by the Chronic Dev Team. Here's the download for both Mac and Windows below:

    CDev Reporter - Mac
    CDev Reporter - Windows

    Lend them a hand and utilize the tool whenever possible. You have an opportunity to ensure a brighter jailbreak future - how will you exploit this opportunity?

      I am on red snow tethered and anytime I add a program like winter board that requires a reboot I close it out and then close cydia out of my multi tasking. Everything runs fine. Even winter board. I reboot whenever I get the chance to do so.
