Posted In Jailbreak News - By Joon On Monday, December 5th, 2011 With 0 Comments

The head man of the Chronic Dev Team, p0sixninja, has announced that the dev team has already received over 10 million crash reports from jailbreak community members. The dev team recently announced a new application that would take the crash reports from your iOS 5 device and send them to the Dev Team instead of Apple in the effort to find exploits for a new untethered jailbreak for iOS 5.

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 is no timeframe set out for an untethered jailbreak for iOS 5 and the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, but the large amount of submitted crash reports shows how committed the jailbreak community is to making a jailbreak for iOS 5, iPhone 4S and iPad 2 a reality. The team’s hackers have found some important exploits in iOS 5 and p0sixninja has stated that they are being heavily guarded.
