Chronic Dev Team Releases "Weapons Of Mass Exploitation", Help Them Find Exploits In iOS 5
Another bomb dropped on jailbreak community earlier today when p0sixninja of Chronic Dev team announced that iOS 5, 5.0.1 untethered jailbreak can take more time than expected. P0sixninja explained all the problem they’re facing in jailbreaking iOS 5 untethered on iPhone 4S, iPad 2, and other iOS devices in detail.
As you all know earlier in September at MyGreatFest aka JailbreakCon this year Chronic Dev team announced that they’ve found 5 userland exploits in iOS 5 which will allow them to jailbreak iOS 5 untethered on iPhone 4S and iPad 2 even. But p0sixninja in his update today mentioned that some of those exploits which were really important to achieve an untethered iOS 5 jailbreak have been patched by Apple in iOS 5 public version.
Unfortunately, that announcement was a bit premature, because in the subsequent weeks, Apple found & patched a (critical) few of those exploits, between the beta versions we used for testing and the final release of iOS5 on October 12.
Now Chronic Dev team is reaching out to public and iOS device users to help them find vulnerabilities in iOS 5 to jailbreak it untethered. They’ve also released a new tool which will collect crash reports from your iOS devices and send it over to Chronic Dev team’s Servers instead of Apple. So it’s more like using Apple’s weapon against them, iTunes collect all crash reports from your iOS and sends it over to Apple and they fix those vulnerabilities. This new tool C-Dev Reporter will also prevent iTunes from sending these crash reports to Apple.
Instead of allowing this vicious cycle to continue, we decided to write a new program to turn Apple’s own beast against its master, per se. All this program requires from you is to attach your iOS device to your computer and click a single button!
At this point, the program copies all the crash reports off your device (which, under normal circumstances, would be sent right back to Apple), and instead sends this data to a secure, private server hosted by your friendly Chronic Dev team. Next, our program proceeds to neuter your copy of iTunes, simply by changing your settings to prevent your computer from sending any further diagnostic information from your device to Apple.
Using this agglomeration of your crash reports and our ninja skills, Chronic Dev will be able to quickly pinpoint vulnerabilities in various programs by using the same techniques Apple currently employs. At the very least, your data will help point us in the direction of which applications are the most vulnerable, so we can focus our time & energy on these with laser-like intensity. And, of course, this will also prevent Apple from accessing all your valuable data, just so they can then turn around and use it against you.
For now this tool is only available for Mac user but p0sixninja of C-Dev team promised that a Windows version will be released in next 24 hours.
You can download C-Dev Reporter for Mac from link below and help jailbreakers find exploits in iOS 5 to jailbreak it untethered.
We will keep you updated on this, stay tuned!
