    I'm curious as well. Do they just know code so well they find loopholes and such?

    In a way that you will probably never understand.

    I suggest looking up how a finding exploits works. There isn't any software that is designed to hack and exploit OS's. It is just like when people want to hack people's computers and such, there isn't no Hackboy 3000 to hack easy. It is usually a long time spent and hours wasted to find them. The one that they are using on iOS 4 was found quick because I guess apple didn't patch the spirit exploit good enough.

    They understand the base programming usually. They don't use a program. They ARE the program.

    But how do they get access to the code to find exploits? And surely they could then edit that code to create exploits? It's confusing but if they can access the code to find exploits then there must be something capable of editing it without jailbreaking?

    I'm a sort of newbie programmer who makes cruddy games and useless utilities and would very much like to expand my knowledge of this. I have no clue if anything I said is true... or possible.

    It's a very complicated process that takes weeks sometimes. You have to know a lot about programming.

    greenpois0n? That's software to find exploits, I believe. I'll check the download now.
