The bug in @googlechrome was analyzed by @phoenixdev, who found some jailbreak-detection logic that assumed you had turned on crash reports.Jay Freeman (saurik) @saurik
(In addition to changing that setting--to work around @googlechrome's mistake --you may also need to uninstall Chrome hacks you may have.)Jay Freeman (saurik) @saurik
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 …

I did the following and didn't have to uninstall/reinstall
You can fix this by just changing a file with iFuxbox or iFile
var/mobile/applications/(chrome app folder)/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome
Open and edit the file called "Local State" and find this line:
Replace the "false," to "true," like this:
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:
1. Uninstall CDM
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
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.

Chrome now crashes Everytime I open it since I updated.

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

I just removed chrome download manager and it seems to be working fine now.
03-05-2013, 10:03 AM #34
so we're forced to send anonymouse usage data for it to work?...

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.

Typical GuGGle......um by the way, using Safari you can send your link via email or messages for quit some time now......sure took Guggle a while to copy Apple again.
