    I know where the apps get stored/saved at, /data/apps & /data/apps-private, but where do the apps {.apk} files get installed/extracted at on these phones, I have the htc hero (rooted).

    or does the phone not extract the apk files, & reads them directly from the apk?:thinking:

    I don't think they are extracted in any manner. Pushing and pulling apps consists of pushing and pulling their apks. Thats all

    id like to know this too.

    by the way... it would be much more helpful to actually say where rather than 'I found it'
