Chronic Dev Team Unveils C-Dev Reporter

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.

iPhone 4S Reviews Are Out

Reviewing the iPhone 4S is in many ways a lot like reviewing the original iPhone 4, except that it’s not. The device, which was just announced at a special event on Apple’s campus, is very much the same phone the company released in June of 2010 — but it’s also something completely new.

The Verge:

The iPhone 4S is a great device for some, but what if you’re thinking of upgrading from an iPhone 4? That’s a tougher call. The phone is faster, to be sure, and has an amazing camera. And of course, you can’t get Siri unless you have a 4S… but I just don’t know if any of those reasons are compelling enough to convince previous buyers to upgrade. The concept is a particularly hard sell for Verizon customers. The gap between this year’s model and last year’s model isn’t as wide as Apple would probably like.

For this review, I returned to the iPhone after a fairly long period of using and testing other devices. Spending a week with Apple’s newest phone, I’m reminded again of just what makes the company’s products so special. It’s not specs, services, or apps. This phone is not perfect. Certainly it can be improved. But there is something here, beyond the screen and CPU, beyond iCloud, something under the surface. Some intangible spark.

Is this the best phone ever made? That’s debatable. But I can tell you this: the iPhone 4S is pretty damn cool.

Techcrunch:

-”The iPhone 4S blows away the iPhone 4 when it comes to speed.”
– “The true killer feature of the device is Siri.”
– “The amount of times Siri hasn’t been able to understand and execute my request is astonishingly low. I’ll say something that I’m sure Siri won’t be able to understand, and it gets it.”
– “Because it uses server-side software to decipher what you’re saying (likely using Nuance-licensed technology), you have to be connected to the Internet in order for Siri to work.”
