There's reference in the "known issues" on the beta download page to, get this:

"Springboard/Backboard"

Anyone have a clue what that's about?

haha, had to. I was left hangin... Wait, what's this guys mom and dad use?!?!?!
Back then, i think a razor and some sort of samsung feature phone, along with an HP. Nowadays, they've got iPhones, but the HP is still there.

BUT SERIOUSLY! I want to know what Backboard is!

It says Springboard/Backboard and I found Springboard on Wikipedia. Springboard, or Home Screen is the standard application that manages the iOS home screen. It is also used in Mac OSX 10.7 Lion in launchpad.
Thank you, but I already knew what Springboard is.

WHAT IS BACKBOARD?!?!?!

No way! Is that what it's called? I always wondered what springboard.app was! :rolleyes:
This guy gets it.

chpwn brought it to my attention here

I feel like it'll be some mundane layer for 3rd party background processes, but my fingers are crossed it'll be something with some whiz and pop.

Well that tells us that they are separate things, but not what it is.
Which is more than you've contributed, thanks.

----------

Could it have something to do with sandboxing? It sounds like Apple is almost demanding it with OS6
I could see that, though that seems even more mundane (to me at least).

Still, I'd love an answer to the riddle... maybe one day.

This is going to bother me till i find an answer. I will.

This may shed some light:

Maybe it's somehow a springboard backup method? Seems too coincidental to me that a Springboard Cydia tweak is also called Backboard.... Hmmmm

Actually I said what springboard is and someone benefited from it. What have you contributed?
That's the stupidest thing I've read today. Nobody benefited from it. It's HIS thread asking a question. All you contributed was answers to questions nobody was asking.

The ********** question. Get out of my thread! Grrr.

But for real, didn't mean to seem hostile, but I did sort of pose the original question, for which you replied with info from wikipedia on something that's existed since iPhone os 1 in 2007, and, correct me if i'm wrong, but I didn't catch the post that shows someone benefitting from it.

But, thanks!

Sadly I have to carry on with life. Read that link. Seems to make some form of sense. I'll check up on this later for my daily dopamine dump
