As of June 9, 2009, running firmware version [webOS 1.0.2]:

After accessing linux on the phone here is a list all the running processes on the Palm Pre and what their purpose is...

System Information:

First some operating system info with the following

root@castle:/# uname -a
Linux castle 2.6.24-palm-joplin-3430 #1 175.1.15 armv7l unknown

Here is a quick dump from my phone, Some of these tasks are native Linux process that you would find in most Linux distributions and some are obviously specific to the webOS. Separating them would be the first task.

To perform a full list of the running processes on the Palm Pre, you may use the "ps" application that ships with the operating system. You will need to obtain console access to the phone, and to issue the command:

ps -auxw
