    I've looked all over the internet, and I can't find a thing that even remotely helps. I feel obligated to at least try to find a single jailbreak on a single firmware.

    What you need:
    Low level language knowledge
    ARM knowledge
    An eye for exploits
    Time

    ARM is the instruction set architecture which the cpu of most mobile devices, including the iPhone use. Just like computers run a x86 or x64 architecture, mobile devices usually use ARM.

    The resume for a person who is qualified for this:

    Fluent in multiple computer languages, at least a few native code like ARM or x86.
    Fully aware of the makeup of these types of systems, including all memory registers and subprocessors.
