Chronic Dev Team – the people behind the GreenPoison jailbreaking tool which was used to jailbreakiOS 4.2.1 have announced and released an all new program which permits jailbreaking enthusiasts to send their iOS device crash reports directly to Chronic Dev Team instead of Apple.
News of this new program comes straight from GreenPois0n blog in the form of a blog post in which iPhone hacker Joshua p0sixninja Hill gives an update on iOS 5 jailbreak, and also mentions how Apple finds exploits in iOS and iOS devices, how some of their critical userland exploits were patched as well as how you can now help the jailbreaking communityin finding exploits so that the long-waiting untethered iOS 5 jailbreak for all devices, including iPad 2 and iPhone 4S, can come sooner rather than later.
The program – which is called C-Dev Reporter - basically sends all crash reports on your device to private, secure Chronic Dev Team servers instead of Apple. These reports are then studied by members of the team and the knowledge they gain is then used to find exploits which eventually will lead to a proper, untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.
The program also disables iTunes’ ability to send crash reports to Apple, so that they would be unable to patch these exploits.
