WebOs Hacks: List all installed apps on a Palm pre

One of the fun things you can do with a Palm Pre is access the underlying Linux OS via a terminal program, which I’ve used NovaTerm

By navigating around the file system I could find a list of installed apps, by navigating to /media/cryptofs/apps/user/palm/applications

navigating into these apps gives the source code… you can use the vi editor to view file contents (use : x to exit)

Looking into the source code of NovaTerm, it connects to localhost on port 6968, recreating this on Telnet, It reports

3517 a339f527fe6d98a2b95b9f2ef036d503042181c9 usb castle-linux

Then closes the port.

3517 is another port number, and the long hex number is the NDUID or DeviceID
