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.
Thanks to Modmyi reader PoEtikly for the tip.

i hate to be 'that' guy here but how will we know if this package, once installed, won't be sending personal and private and potentially vulnerable information to whoever needs it? i mean...it would be VERY easy to do that with a package like this...ur anyway sending 'reports' to somebody aren't you. dont get me wrong - im all woohoo go joe about the dev team and anyone who was even remotely involved with jailbreaking - i've donated as well quite generously from time to time - but this smells a little fishy. im not saying the guys who made the app ARE going to misuse it but im saying people are easily corruptible.
let the bashing begin... :P

whose to say that that isn't happening, right now, under the guise of a theme or tweak?

Is there a repo for this as can't find it when I search cydia??

Hey devteamers, do you ever think it will be possible to extract a iOS update and manually replace the files in the OS that are patched from this OTA update? Maybe we can patch all the files manually except the one pertaining to the exploit so we can have a 5.1 OS without breaking our jb's. Use something like files to overwrite the existing files that were extracted from the OTA package. I'm sure there can be some daemon that watches for updates and parses it out no?

since the app has been out for quite a bit for older devices, you'd think there'd been reports of stolen data and certainly problems relating to priveledged info showing up somewhere. since that hasn't happened...certainly nothing from my device that i know of, i'm not convinced this is in any way a problem.

I'm a bit dense when it comes to this stuff (hence the name iPhonePutz) so please bear with the dumb question... What good are crash reports from a device that's already jailbroken?

I once prayed to God for an iPhone, but quickly found out He didn't work that way...so I stole an iPhone and prayed for His forgiveness.

Im in if it will help with jail-breaking! Why not make them more stable? They will be alot better if they can make them more stable and crash less Installing now.
