iOS 5 rumors: help Chronic DevTeam release untethered jailbreak

The exploits found by the Chronic Dev team that could have helped find an untethered jailbreak were found and killed by Apple, reports say.

Dev team member Joshua Hill announced in a blog post that some of those five exploits the team found in iOS 5 have been patched by Apple.

He wrote: “First & foremost: during my JailbreakCon talk in September, I was excited to announce that the Chronic Dev team had already discovered 5 different exploits for use in our upcoming jailbreak. 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.”

However, Hill also included a request in his post: he asked for iPhone users’ crash reports from their iPhones to find new and un-patched exploits.

“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!” the member explained in the post.

“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 needs to neuter your copy of iTunes, simply by changing your settings to prevent your computer from sending any further information from your device to Apple.”

In addition, the iPhone Dev-Team made an announcement through @MuscleNerd’s Twitter account, regarding the status of a carrier unlock for the iPhone 4S.

“Crazy Thanksgiving weekend! Very promising 4S unlock (http://twitpic.com/7kku4t) is in the works (Not i4, just 4S..that’s crazy part),” the tweet read.

The post was accompanied by a picture linked in the Twitter update.
