  • [How To] Submit Your Crash Reports to the Chronic Dev Team: Help With Untether!

    In this guide, we will show you how to submit your crash reports to help the Chronic Dev Team find exploits for the iOS 5 untethered jailbreak. Please help them, by submitting your crash reports; it's quick and painless and goes to a good cause.

    The picture above is the Chronic Dev Team crash reporter. It was announced last night. This tool will submit your crash reports to the Chronic Dev Team. It will require your Mac OS X administrator password to run after you install it because it will change the server of your iTunes crash reports from Apple to the Chronic Dev Team instead. Please enter your password and allow the application to run. The server change is reversible. Allowing this tool to run will send the Chronic Dev Team information about everyone's crash reports. This will give the Chronic Dev Team a ton of situations to look at and hopefully offer them enough data to find more untethered jailbreak exploits. You can read more about it on the Chronic Dev Team blog, here.

    Right now, the Chronic Dev Team crash reporter is available for Mac OS X and Windows. This guide will work the same on Windows as it will for Mac OS X. Users can download the Chronic Dev Team crash reporter right now:
    Chronic Dev Team crash reporter for Mac.
    Chronic Dev Team crash reporter for Windows.

    After you open the application, the window will look like the picture above. It will ask you to plug an iDevice in. If you plug your iDevice in and you have a pass code set, you will get the following error message:



    To get rid of the error message, simply unlock your iDevice, enter the pass code, and once you are on the SpringBoard, you will notice that the error message is now gone. Go ahead and click the, "Do it!" button so that your crash reports will be submitted to the Chronic Dev Team. When you do this, it will begin uploading. The process takes about 20 seconds, give or take, depending on your internet speed as shown below:



    After it finishes, you can unplug your iDevice and submit crash reports for another iDevice or you can delete the tool. When it's finished, it will give you a, "SUCCESS" message as shown below:



    You are now finished. If you have uploaded your crash reports, then thank you for the generosity to the Chronic Dev Team. They will use your crash reports to gather data in trying to find more exploits for the untethered iOS 5 jailbreak.

    You can follow me on Twitter and I will keep you up to date on Chronic Dev Team news.

    How did the submission go for you? Share in the comments below!

      I've downloaded 5 times, extracted and get this every time. Needless to say, disable antivirus.

      It isn't an infection. The reason antivirus programs see it as a threat is because it needs to change the server in iTunes to send crash reports to Chronic Dev instead of Apple. That kind of system tampering is what AVG doesn't play nicely with.

      Uploads of my almost 3,800 crash reports keep stopping... Could it be because there are so many?

      That applies to everyone - it does not make it right to just send anyone all your data.

      I hope there is nothing wrong with this and that they will share the data with those they should. Until I have this confirmed I will not be using this tool.

      Why are you whining so much?
      I don't care what they do with my crash reports, I wouldn't even care if they gave all of them to you. It's not like it will ruin my life...

      TBH I think you are a little bit too sensitive, and that you don't trust other people enough.
      The enitre world isn't evil!

      Until then, I wont.

      Look out man, the Chronic Dev team is a covert league of government terrorists.

      Not true. But, you really have a hard time trusting the Chronic Dev Team?

      I trust them - I just want to know exactly what I am sending them and who they will share it with.

      If they are not going to share, I would rather send my my info to other people.

      You are sending them a history of stock iOS application crashes. Only the crashes. The console information. It will not collect crash reports from your downloaded applications or jailbreak tweaks. By finding the iOS stock applications that crash, it means bad code. They can check to see if other devices have the same problem to look for inconsistencies. If it's consistent that means iOS has a bug and they might be able to use it for a jailbreak. They will only exploit holes that are common throughout iOS applications themselves.

      If you've seen what a crash report looks like, all it does is send a little Window of your actions that caused it to crash. None of your personal information is uploaded. Using this window, they can reproduce the crash as an exploit.

      Aren't you also the guy that thought there was a potential security risk with sharing Cydia numbers? -_-

      What's the difference. Apple is collecting them anyway. Who's to say what apple is doing with those. Every one of their employees that have to code ect has probly seen them. I trust chronic more than random apple employees.

      You need to lay off the LSD kid! I assure you Chronic Dev Team is NOT code for a secret government society that's out to find, rape, and kill you with a special isotope imbedded Ink in which little aliens and demons will sprout from your little boy junk. Your personal information is NOT important! GUARANTEED! Besides people don't want to steal others identities that have had to claim bankruptcy from credit card debt racked up from online porn sites.

      My advice to you (as I'm sure many people have thought this exact same thing) is go see a mental health professional because I think there's some paranoid schizophrenia taking hold there.

      And yes this guy is always talking about how important his "personal information" is to him. He probably has it sewn into a teddy bear that he holds oh so tightly. He's given his "FRIENDS" special instructions to ONLY open the bear if he disappears or dies in some strange way.

      OMFG CONFUCIOUS.........

      it's the IRS, they're coming to KILL KILL KILL you!!!! Oh noooooooooo!

      Let's keep the personal attacks away k people

      FYI Confucious is not a kid. I wont reveal his age but I am 31 and he is older than me. Also when he says his "friends" he is referring to the iPhone Dev Team (MuscleNerd) as Confucious knows them pretty well (he is a moderator on their blog).

      Not that I fully agree with his stance but he is entitled to it. I trust Chronic Dev as much as the Dev team personally.
