Abstract

Compiling and reviewing the findings of the research of the same name, this article is founded from three pillars: in the first, a freely inspired by interface archeology exercise, with a focus on customization in the history of personal computing. We investigate how customization options are consolidated in desktop operating systems for Macintosh. The second pillar is dedicated to the definition and exploration of the figure of the hacker, his appearance, performance, groups, ethics and classes. Finally, we explore the techniques of jailbreak, where hackers apply techniques and tools that seek to modify the structure of the iOS operating system and the interface customizations unlocked by the practice.
