An untethered jailbreak solution for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2 is on the way, according to a report by the Chronic Dev Team.
The Chronic Dev Team had already announced that they had found several exploits that could possibly be used in a future iOS 5 jailbreak. At the same time, Apple quickly patched these exploits before the public release of the firmware.
One of Apple's weapons in the arsenal against jailbreaking is the log of crash reports, sent automatically from iTunes that serves to identify possible exploits.
Chronic Dev Team is trying to stop Apple from finding out about these potential jailbreak opportunities by circumventing the automatic crash reports from iOS. Now the Chronic Dev Team is hard at work collecting submissions from iPhone users everywhere. As per the report, these will be 10 million in one week to be exact, which will help the team identify possible exploits for a new iOS 5 jailbreak. 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.
Chronic Dev Team told iDownloadblog that 10 million crash reports have already been submitted by users via their computers. In a recent tweet, the Chronic Dev Team announced that 10,071,868 crash reports had been uploaded to the Chronic Dev Team’s servers ever since the tool for collecting the data was released last Sunday
The variety of jailbreak apps available on the Cydia jailbreak app store increases the usability and breadth of functionality of the iPhone, improving the user experience via unique software and system tweaks for ultimate customization.
There’s still no expected time of arrival 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.
