    Well, I was wondering how the Dev Teams make jailbreak processes and I was wondering to see if I had the potential to find exploits, or work with anyone. Anyone wanna help me a) Find some sort of "Exploit" b) Direct me to a site where I can learn about this step-by-step or c) Kick me while I'm down and just ignore me?

    If you have to ask it unlikely you will find anything anytime soon. However, I admire your curiosity and it certainly will be a learning experience whether it's successful or not. Good luck.

    I do not know much about jailbreak but I can direct you to a site.
    This site may help you. http://wikee.iphwn.org/

    Also,look at some source codes that may tell you something. Exploits are loopholes in apples software/hardware which allow access or exploiting into an area which can edit some commands allowing you root access.

    What you explained about exploits made it a whooooole lot clearer

    If you don't have experience exploiting systems already, this will be seriously difficult. These guys worked on this stuff for a long time, even before the iPhone.

    Which is exactly why I want to know how I can start and where can I learn such things. I am very eager and open to work on anything.

    Sorry, I don't mean to discourage. I did this stuff when I was very young. It was hard. After a while, I gave up. If you do choose to learn it, don't do what I did, keep trying, and have patience. I didn't.

    What you are basically looking for with these types of hacks is a buffer overflow. Where you can overload a variable and cause a crash. But its more complex than that. The crash has to compromise the sign checks. Look the iPhone wiki for less general information. That's generally how to break sign checks. You also have to know the system very well. Its ins and outs. Thats why GeoHot took the PS3 apart. Once you get the crash you develop a payload that will let you load cydia and allow root access to the file system.

    Wait I think I have the process of making one. Someone correct me I think I may have a flawed process.

    1.Use greenpois0n to search for a exploit
    2.Find out about the exploit and how to actually "exploit the exploit"
    3.Create a toolchain, whatever that is, and use the toolchain and insert it into your ipod using pwnagetool. This step requires a mac.
    4.Using greenpois0n create a front end for your jailbreak.

    How did ih8sn0w make a jailbreak to work on windows?
    I think it got ported

    I don't know what OS you run. SOZ

    Finding an exploit is not as simple as "Use greenpois0n to search for a exploit" You need to actually look for it, which takes a long time. If it was that simple, then Apple would just fix all of their exploits after finding them by running greenpois0n.
