iDontCrash – Fraudulent App

BigBoss BigBoss has put out a warning on his website about a fraudulent application called iDontCrash. It seems that a developer tried to get BigBoss to host his application but due to curiosity BigBoss decided to take a good look at the app before hosting it. Below is what he found…this is just a snippet of the article. You can view the full article HERE. .

A week ago, a developer tried to send me an app called iDontCrash to host. Being curious, and a developer myself, I asked a few questions about this app before hosting it. The answers proved to me that it is total fraud on the community. It should be called iDontWork or iAmFake. This app gave me hours of enjoyment while we were picking it apart. In short, do not trust this app or its developer Brandon Rose. It is upsetting when someone tries to harm our community, therefore, I decided to post all about this app and its pseudo developer.

What is iDontCrash? It is nothing. A fake app not even built for iPhone that does nothing but give you, the hopeful user, false hopes.


What does iDontCrash claim to be? It claims to be an app that prevents crashing due to low memory. Sounds great right? It sounded pretty dubious. So we looked into it. What did we find?

1) iDontCrash is not even an iPhone application. It’s not compiled for ARM6 processor.

2) iDontCrash was generated using the wizard in xcode. Then the binary was compiled for the iPhone simulator that runs on the MAC. Of course this cannot run on an iPhone.

3) iDontCrash claims to run and close instantly then putting a daemon onto the system that monitors memory usage. This does not happen. Instead, the app crashes because it is an invalid binary for the system. Here is a copy of the log:

(UIKitApplication:com.yourcompany.iDon_t_Crash[0×4c3f][63]): posix_spawnp(”/var/stash/.FZm9EA/iDon’t Crash.app/iDon’t Crash”, …): Bad CPU type in executable
