  • Chronic Dev Team's Crash Reporter Tool Released As Cydia Package

    The Chronic Dev Team's tool is now available as a Cydia package.

    Do you remember the tool that the Chronic Dev team released that let them obtain your iOS crash reports instead of Apple? Thanks to a feature of iOS 5 that allows the iDevice to send crash reports to Apple directly from the device without a computer (the PC-free feature), developer innoying has built a Cydia package that will do exactly the same thing without you needing to tether up to a computer and run software. The package can be downloaded for free in Cydia and it's called, "CDevReporter." It's new and you will find it under the recent changes.

    What it does is it sends your crash reports from iOS to the Chronic Dev team instead of Apple so that they can search for exploits that will aid with future jailbreaks. With iOS 5.1 just on the horizon, we are hoping that the Chronic Dev team will be able to construct an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.1 as well. iOS 5.1 allows us to delete photos from our Photo Stream individually instead of an all-or-nothing ideal. Also, it's said to completely fix the battery problem with the iPhone 4S and allow iPhone 4S users to toggle 3G.

    When you install CDevReporter, you will be given a new settings Cell that give you the option to toggle the crash reporting tool on and off at your own leisure. This gives you the option to keep your data personal or public based on your own convenience. It will use the same data that was collected by the computer version of the tool, only this Cydia package makes the process automatic and more mobile. The Settings for CDevReporter will look like the image below:



    The settings gives you a good overview of what the package does - installing a daemon in the background to monitor crashes - which can be enabled or disabled at any time with the switch. We ask that if you want to see more future jailbreaks for iOS 5, keeping them untethered as well, that you please assist in dumping your crash reports to the Chronic Dev team.

      Luke - thanks for taking the time to explain. I'll be installing the tool as soon as the 4S jailbreak is released.

      If you are jail breaking your phone, you should already know that you are potentially at risk for your device being compromised. Any and all tweaks 'could' be tracking you but you knew that already!!! Right???

      Jailbreaking is for those that don't mind the risk, therefore, you can be happy w/ a tweaked out phone or be happy w/ a stock phone. It's your choice....nobody is forcing you to jailbreak.

      Let's be honest anyone who's anyone can find out where you are or who you are. Sure people use small devices to get your credit card number and if that was to happen you would call up say "hey I didn't buy this" and cancel your card and issue a new one. (big deal). People are so paranoid.

      Nice. I used the PC tool to send my crash reports about a month ago. I'll surely install this to send them again...

      Brilliant I didn't do the iTunes one because I very rarely if ever at all plug in to my computer now.

      Funny thing is legit apps that we pay for in the App store capture our data and sell it. TomTom is one of them that has gotten in trouble for it. I am sure there are many many more legit apps that do the same thing. I for one have nothing to hide. I live a boring life and just work on cars. All they will get is pics of my cars which are already all over the internet. I for one will add this mod to help the future.

      For those having problems finding it you have to wait for everything to load then it will popup.

      Would be better if you could select a time/day to send data!

      As a developer, I have looked at these crash reports and here is some of the data that is usually sent. Any process running and the processes data. Location. All of you're apps. UDID. Serial Number etc.

      It would be cool if this package had an option slider for 'Only send reports over wi-fi'.

      It would help on the data usage front (my mobile carrier only allows me 750MB per month) and on the security front.
