In a serious attempt carried out by the Chronic Dev team to arrive closer to an untethered jailbreak, Chronic Dev Team`s front man Jousha Hill, known as p0sixninja) explained to jailbreak supporters how Apple finds out about exploits which it uses afterwards to patch up its software bringing the jailbreak team further from an untethered jailbreak.

Chronic Dev team released a software which collects iOS crash reports in iTunes and sends them to a secure private server to help them find vunrabilites in different programs for the future 5 untethered jailbreak.

We are a week after and the Dev Team announced in a tweet by Joshua, that they collected 10,071,868 crash reports to the Chronic Dev Team`s servers since the launch the software was released last Sunday and that they are currently working to parse the crash report data to help create a stable iOS 5 untethered jailbreak.

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”.

We still don’t know when we will be seeing an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak, but hopefully the huge number of crash reports will accelerate the project. The team’s hackers have already found important iOS 5 exploits, but Joshua has said that they remain “highly guarded until the right time.



We're not around right now. But you can send us an email and we'll get back to you, asap.
