    Default An interesting find...

    It seems that the SpringBoard does not just read applications from /Applications and /Widgets, but also /AppleInternal/Applications and /Accessories.

    Nothing mindblowing, but I found it mildly interesting. Maybe if anyone was having problems with the /Widgets symlink they could opt for one of the above two.

    Default Sorry for the double post...but...

    Upon further investigation, this /AppleInternal/ folder is most likely on all Apple developer phones. I'm guessing it may be used as a sandbox environment containing all of the regular firmware plus the developer tools. I think this because I have seen normal references to in when dissassembling core files (like /AppleInternal/System/Library/Frameworks/UIKit.framework) to some not so normal references (like /AppleInternal/System/Library/CoreServices/Dashboard.app/Dashboard).

    No real use to us normal users, but still intriguing...
