    How long have you (Jaden) been in the jailbreak scene? Great /idea/ for an article but you missed one MAJOR benefactor; Zibri, the creator of ZiPhone, the first widespread jailbreak tool. I’m not trying to be a dick but you can’t just include the most well-known current hackers. If you’re going to make a list of the “big” hackers, you need to include them all.

    Hey David, I have been following the Jailbreaking community since the end of 2007. You are very right, I missed some of the very first hackers such AriX and as you mentioned Zibri. I will be updating the site with these hackers in the future, I only focused on the current ones in this article. Stay tuned.

    Glad to hear you agree. I even forgot about AriX. Again, I know I cam off as an ass; didn’t mean to. Other than missing a few debs it’s a great article.
