    Why is there always a number in jailbreak names?

    In new to this forum so dont flame me for this thread being n00bie. But there is always a number in jailbreak names e.g. limera1n, greenpois0n, redsn0w.

    eh, it's usually a number that makes it look like a letter btw, it's zero not O. It just makes it look more relaxed I guess. Kinda funny looking too. No legit reason I know of.

    Not all of them... (spirit, star, pwnage tool...)
    But, its just a trend in naming the jailbreaks i guess.

    well the first jailbreak with the alpha/numeric combination was blackra1n (blackrain)

    if you google for blackrain you get...

    you get movies, wikipedia entries etc.

    GeoHot wanted it to be unique, eg. one hit in google, so that there would be no confusion

    then the alpha numeric combination kinda stuck and is now a jailbreak trend
