It is no secret that the battle between Apple engineers and the jailbreak community has been going on for many years now. It is safe to say that Apple has been stepping up their game with each version of the iOS. For example, it took a good two months before an untethered solution for the iOS 5 was released. And as of this writng, an A5 jailbreak has yet to see the light of day. Back in November, Chronic-Dev Team released a crash data recovery tool called C-Dev Crash Reporter that could potentially help with future jailbreaks.
In case you don't know, C-Dev Crash Reporter is a tool that copies all crash reports from the user's iPhone, iPad or iPod touch. These reports are usually sent to Apple's server but with the help of the tool, the date are instead sent to a server hosted by the Chronic Dev-Team. And now, developer @innoying has created a Cydia package that enables you to install CDevReporter directly into your iOS device. So this means that you do not have to connect your device a computer each time you want to submit your crash reports.
Upon installing the tool, you should be able to see a new option under Settings.app which enables or disables the tool itself. The type of data that is being sent is similar to the desktop version but the process of submitting the reports has become more convenient with this tool. The developer guarantees that the submitted data are sent and it will end up on Chronic-Dev's hand.
The package is a new one and it can be found under the BigBoss repo. Hopefully, this tool becomes a lot more easier for hackers to come up with jailbreak solutions especially for the iPhone 4S and iPad 2, and also with the upcoming iOS 5.1 which is bound to be released by Apple soon.
