Chronic Dev Team: We’ve Already Received Over 10 Million Crash Reports From Jailbreak Supporters

By , Dec 4, 2011

Front man for the Chronic Dev Team, Joshua Hill (also known as p0sixninja), has announced a landmark number of crash reports that have already been submitted to his team. The Chronic Dev Team recently released an app that collects iOS crash reports in iTunes and sends them to the team’s private servers to help find exploits for the future iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.

After only one week, the team of hackers has collected over 10 million crash reports from jailbreak supporters worldwide. Joshua and the rest of the Chronic Dev Team are working to parse the crash report data to help create a stable untethered jailbreak for Apple’s iOS 5.

In a recent tweet, Joshua Hill announced that 10,071,868 crash reports have been uploaded to the Chronic Dev Team’s servers since the tool for collecting the data was released last Sunday. We’ve told you how to use the Chronic Dev Crash Reporter app to help the team find exploits for future jailbreaks.

The Chronic Dev Team is using Google’s MapReduce software to compute the massive amount of report data that is being sent in by jailbreakers around the world. According to Joshua, MapReduce allows his team to “run tests that would take days normally in only seconds.”

There’s still no ETA on an official untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but this incredible number of submitted crash reports is a testament to how committed the jailbreak community is to making the Chronic Dev Team’s jailbreak a reality. The team’s hackers have already found important iOS 5 exploits, but Joshua has said that they remain “highly guarded until the right time.”

  • wow so glad to know that so many people still love to JB their iPhone one day Apple will sell pre JB iPhones too lollll

    • Nah, they are too arrogant to do that. That will prove Apple’s failure against the jailbreakers.

    I’m all for team jailbrake just wish they can stop pirates from stealing honest people’s hard work

  • nir homi

    i would saggest that the jailbreak software will include application that would be installed on idevices that allow to upload crash reports to dev-team server. That way they will get even more crash reports.

    I hope this is the solution we hoped for because i have been really interested about android. Apple made the jailbreak not worth it.

    That’s a really cool way to find new exploits!

  • Keep all the good work guys….

  • Dan

    nice to know, hopefully we’ll have a jailbreak soon… it’s kind of alarming the time it is taking them to crack this.

    I’d be happy just to get a tethered iPad 2 jailbreak (on OS5)

    Yep, all this work and months of waiting so apple can patch it in a week.

  • What did you expect? We are jailbreakers. We are all part of the community. We are always ready to help when needed.

    tethered JB for 4S would be nice

    Chronic dev team done a really good job, i hope this time they got an edge to release untethered JB for ios 5

  • All the people who actually made the jb’s stopped. We wont have a new jb untill another comex or georgy come out. Dev team never make anything useful.

  • I’m glad the JB community are working together for this

    Not trying to be an ass here but is this a testament to all the helpful jailbreakers or an inditement of Apple for all the crashes.

    10M crash reports by how many users? A few hundred? Thousand? Million? (not likely)
