    Hello,
    Well i only have a few little questions but i would kind of like a decent explanation to the question. okay this may sound dumb but im just gonna type it as i think it.. well how exactly do "hackers" know how to hack like the ipod touch for example... what exactly does the dev team look for when creating hacks. like i know im going to get smart remarks back but im really interested on learning how they do it. thanks in advance

    I think they have to look for a sloppy piece of code in the firmware (like a buffer overflow), that allows for unsigned code execution.
