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
