    Alright, I'm exposing myself to ridicule here, but I've been searching on the forums and google for days now and can't seem to find this out: Where the heck do most apps and widgets install to on the Vibrant? My /system/app only has maybe 10% of my apps, and only a few widgets...none of which are the ones I want to pull out, modify, then push back. I'm navigating to that directory using adb. I've also looked at every other directory I can see, and can't find where widgets like Vlingo, SmoothCalendar, etc are placed. Where are those apk's?

    Well, I found what I was looking for using Root Explorer, which saw the /data/app folder. But, why didn't ADB see this folder also?

    Dunno, but I have noticed ES File Explorer doesn't display certain folder contents that Root Explorer will.
