    I've been wondering about how jailbreaking started lately. Did some people have an idea of modifying an iPhone and thus the dev team formed? Seems like it would be hard to just start modifying files.

    Don't quote me. That is just what I heard, also what I'm led to believe. Ask SkylarEC no don't. He'll pop up any day now.

    Alright. I heard something about apple trashing a security file of some sort but someone got ahold of it and that started it. I don't totally believe that story though.

    Jailbreaking has been around for ages. Many devices can be jailbroken, all it does is allow root access for basically anything you want to do. Or unlocks the device.
