Well, it doesn't hurt to ask. I'm asking someone to point me in the right direction where I can learn!

Sure it doesnt hurt to so how to learn about something, but A programmer willing to teach you (especially here) on how to siff thru and read code is a slim chance. If you know how to read code and for instance know wherento look say in the Kernel for a hole, then that would be a place to start.

But no NE here will teach ya that man, honestly. Reading the Code and finding a hole within the Kernel, Recovery, Bootloader, ect is incredibly adavnced computing and difficult. If ya got no prior programming skills, the chances are slim.

Not slamming ya, but that's the truth. This is a very difficult thing to do.
