Only a few minutes ago we told you that Chronic Dev’s big announcement was an update on the iOS 5 Untethered Jailbreak. This big announcement from Chronic Dev appeared in the form of a blog post on GreenPois0n.com and talked about why an Untethered iOS 5 Jailbreak was never released. It turns out, it was because Apple had patched most of their exploits they had found.
Apple managed to patch these exploits, due to the fact that every time you sync your iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad iTunes sends crash reports to Apple. These crash reports are how Apple stays one step ahead of the Jailbreaking community. To solve this problem, Chronic Dev have released a tool to turn this crash reporting ability against Apple. This tool is called Chronic-Dev Crash Reporter and with one click of a button it will disable Apple to take crash reports off your iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad. More importantly, Chronic-Dev Crash Reporter will send your iOS Device’s crash reports to a private Chronic Dev server. That will allow Chronic Dev to have access to large database of crash reports, which can lead to exploits, which can further lead to Jailbreaks for us all.
