    So i've been dying to see what is inside the touch (software wise) and how it is constructed...


    its a little not what i was expecting
    but from what i can tell, it is broken down into photo caches, itunes content, and under downloads is a manifest with some xml tags refering to apple.

    the Nikita folder (weird name?) is a compressed zip that includes certificates and playlist structures and quicktime codecs

    just thought this was interesting

    any insight?

    Wikipedia says Nikita is "a Unisex name (male in Russian and Finnish, female in French and various Indian Languages)."

    Perhaps one of the major programmers stuck his name on there and no one bothered to change it?

    Well I am patiently waiting for the SDK to be released, because i want to be able to put High Resolution Images (in my case High Res Topo Maps) on the touch, but currently the touch resizes them for optimization

    I was reading a post on here, about retrieving files from the touch with the use of software called:
    found here

    and thought heck why not try, to see if i could put high res pictures on, but in the process it exposed the file structure and allowed me to look at the files on the touch
