    What is the purpose of the folder /media/internal/.palm/ ? Is it absolutely necessary? Can it be deleted?

    Isn't that the encrypted filesystem? If so, its main purpose is apparently to slow down your phone.

    Yes, your applications depend on this folder, but I too would be interested in a more technical explanation. Apparently it wasn't present in the original incarnations of webOS.

    Your right, it was not present.

    It is the encrypted filesystem that gets mounted under /media/cryptofs . You can get rid of it moving all the encrypted files out of it, but I don't recommend it. You may gain some boot seconds but it can have some nasty side effects

    Side Note: Don't mess with it

    for me, this folder is too huge. 400+ Mb
    anyone has this problem?

    I believe you'll see a direct correlation the apps you have installed. Probably some games, given that size. Compare its size with the decrypted version at /media/cryptofs (not visible from the USB partition).

    If you have any 3D games that's why;. That folder holds all the applications and their data
    If you've liked my software, please consider to towards future development.
