    After selecting that at startup, can it be changed later in the settings?

    The bug in @googlechrome was analyzed by @phoenixdev, who found some jailbreak-detection logic that assumed you had turned on crash reports.

    (In addition to changing that setting--to work around @googlechrome's mistake --you may also need to uninstall Chrome hacks you may have.)

    Sigh. @googlechrome added untested jailbreak-specific code on iOS; if you have "send crash reports" off, it crashes. https://code.google.com/p/chromium/i...?id=179970#c13
    Avoid if you depend on jailbreak tweaks with Google Chrome - or uninstall your tweaks.

    I did the following and didn't have to uninstall/reinstall

    You can fix this by just changing a file with iFuxbox or iFile
    Go to:
    var/mobile/applications/(chrome app folder)/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome

    Open and edit the file called "Local State" and find this line:
    "reporting_enabled": false,

    Replace the "false," to "true," like this:

    "reporting_enabled": true,

    Restart or respring and you're ready to go.

    The problem only occurs on jailbroken phones, and only those phones that have Chrome Download Manager installed. There are two solutions to the crash:

    This one worked for me on a j/b iPad3 6.1.2:
    Solution 1:
    1. Uninstall CDM
    2.Uninstall Chrome
    3. Reinstall Chrome
    4. (Quickly) Accept request to share usage and crash data. (I'm pretty sure we can change this later.)

    This one worked for me on a j/b iPhone 4S 6.1.2
    Solution 2:
    1. Update Chrome
    2. Go to var/mobile/applications/(chrome app folder)/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome
    3. Open/Edit Local State file and change “reporting_enabled” flag to “true”

    That's it. CDM is still installed, and Chrome works. I used WinSCP to edit the Local State file.

    It crashes for me and I dont have CDM installed so that cant be it.

    I back up all my apps so I have the previous version so I just installed that version and its working again.
    Then I edited the app to say the version number is higher than it is and it now never asks to update in App Store.

    The crash is caused by turning off the anonymous usage data. Turn that to wifi only and it works fine.

    I had uninstalled/reinstalled and it worked until I turned off the anonymous usage data. I uninstalled/reinstalled again and left that on and it works fine. Others are reporting the se thing in the reviews on the AppStore.

    Yea I don't have Chrome Download Manager installed and it's crashing. Can't have anything to do with it. I think it's just a bug related to the "Send Usage Data" feature of Chrome...quite an oversight

    If you're having an issue with Google Chrome and you have purchased Flex, then there is a patch in the Flex Community Cloud (free download) that you can use to stop the crashing.

    For people who want to downgrade .. Delete it from your idevice, and find it in the bin of your PC ... Thats if you did not empty it and if you synced at least once with previous version installed.
    I dont have instructions for MacOSX, this works for Windows.
