I know it is a weird question but can i somehow cause or force my iDevice to kernel panic ???
I had a kernel panic on my iPod touch 2G once. It was due to a huge hardware issue. I guess you could try using redsn0w to tethered boot and when using redsn0w go into Extras>Preferences>Boot Args and put in "kill -6 1" without the quotes.
There ain't any kernel panic in iOS (if there is, post me a pic). You can delete the NXXAP.plist and get a reboot loop, which is the same.
Or, disconnect your iPod in the middle of the jailbreak process
Both problems fixed with DFU Restore
I can assure you there is a Kernel Panic on iOS. Both OS X and iOS are built on the same UNIX architecture.
I had this issue with my 2G MC. Usually indicates severe hardware issues. E.G. Run to the Apple Store screaming "HELP ME, MY iPOD HAS WORDS ON IT!!!"
In all seriousness, Kernel Panic on iOS exists. Kernel Panic is way beyond "Reboot loops".

I want someone to reply with the answer to this thread because I want to make my iPod kernel panic
When using redsn0w to tethered boot go into Extras>Preferences>Boot Args and put in "kill -6 1" without the quotes. Don't forget to remove the arguments afterwards
What does this do exactly? And why the hell would you want to cause kernel panic?!
What exactly is a kernel panic? And why would you want to cause it?
I HAVE NO idea. Maybe he has a lack of hobbies, or friends.
I'm sorry.. You're like, an extreme noob for that statement now. Kernel panics exist in iOS and every OS and Bootloops are not the same as kernel panics -_- And I though you knew about iOS Devices..
