Sorry for noob question
Iv never coded in my life so I'm not sure but I want to learn lol
But would it be possible if someone wanted to make a tweak which when a certain app asks to input user and login the tweak sends a correct response (although you've not type a correct password or user in?)

what app are you talking about?
And do you mean sending a fake response back to the user? (that the login was successful)
or do you mean bypassing the app's security model?

Well it's not for any app as such yet
But yeh for now I'd just like to try sending a fake response
Is that possible? I would believe so myself?

how it's handling the authentication, what system calls and what API hooks its using.
Almost anything is possible, but some things are difficult.
In general, you'd have to have a Good Reason for spoofing the auth mechanism
and the way you'd do it would depend on the reason why.
Hence, why I ask "what app?"
e.g. if you're trying to spoof DLC in-app purchases, any way you go is probably going to get clobbered by Apple with iOS6, and the developers will see who you are so they can deliver you a swift kick in the nuts.
e.g. if you're trying to fake email or web authentication, just for "fun", you could do that with proxy server or in the hosts file.
but if you're trying to break iOS' security model, you'd be better served by learning unix, and then learning objc, by which point you'll probably be too old and doddering to care anymore.
