    I really wouldn't worry too much about it. The Chronic Dev Team is a legitimate name. You can trust them; they brought us the Greenpois0n jailbreak back in the iOS 4.2.1 days.

    That wasn't my point. My point is, who's to say installing from repos that are installed by default is safe? For all we know it may very well not be. Or if it is now, it may not continue to be.
    Who's to say?

    I trust the Dev team - if you trust others that's fine. I dont.

    Isn't this released by the dev team?

    Ok, so what argument is there to make them lest trustworthy than the "official" dev team?

    They made Greenpois0n, they're a legitimate development team. Not a shady development team. Chronic is one of the few you should be trusting.

    If you don't know you should not trust either.

    Exactly why I don't understand other's mistrust of this group. It's not like this is a group of guys that randomly popped up yesterday asking for crashdump info...

    That's a good way to say you either don't know yourself, or don't care to say. Either way, an unhelpful reply.

    Because everyone wants to hear it from MuscleNerd. There are more developers than MuscleNerd out there that provide jailbreak tools.

    Makes sense. Probably the same reason people freaked the eff out when other "original" dev team members went different ways.

    FWIW this paranoia is not restricted to things like this. I know people unwilling to send information like this to Apple, Microsoft, etc. if given the choice not to.

    Stunning!
    if you don't know what you are talking about then don't trust anyone.

    I do and I know who to trust - can I tell everyone everything I know? No. So don't trust me.

    I'm not sure what you are getting at here. We're just talking in circles. You don't want to give me a straight forward answer, that's fine. I am not asking you to tell me everything you know. You didn't tell me anything you know. Big difference there. But I digress. No offense, but we are both wasting our time.

    Wish geohot would decide to come back and save the day again.Or maybe we could stop having competition and different factions working separately toward the same goal and have the dev team, the chronic dev team, the new pwn dev team, any other independants like geohot WORK TOGETHER to get us an untethered JB and beat apple. Apples only been ahead of the game recently because they have strength in numbers. If we want to level the playing field we need some goddamn teamwork.

    Now you've got me. I wont install anything unless my friends tell me it's safe. I say you should not install ANYTHING from any repo that is not installed by default. Anything else is beta or wrong - if it's beta then talk to the dev and find out why.
    Maybe you should not be jailbreaking. Beta is fine, how do you think things make it to release? If every one was like you their would not be any testing, thus jailbreaking would grind to a hault.

    Which members? Where? What makes you think it is something to use?

    I have yet to be convinced that I should use it.
    Ok this actually irritates me! If Chronic Dev was the first team to release an untethered exploit I guarantee you'd be syncing up and JBing your device.

    What I also find amazing is how ALL these people will whine about an untethered JB not being released. NONE of them owe any of us anything, yet when they release a tool to HELP them you find more to piss and moan about! The way I feel is HELP or don't use ANY exploit they ever release since they're not trustworthy.

    UNBELIEVABLE!

    I installed and sent in 58 crash reports. Hope I can help!

    For some odd reason after I signed in to post, I can't see the comment I wanted to quote...however it was something along the lines of 'if you don't trust this tool they've released don't ever use any of their other software'..+1Anyways, I sent 19 crash reports. Seems a little low considering I've had the phone since launch day! Whatever though any way I can help!
