HomeDiagnostic.pkg is a package which contains apps that are used by Foxconn and Apple. The package install apps (see Applications by Build, a crash dumper which launches when an iDevice is connected and dumps the devices logs to the computer, an Xcode Organizer panel and a handful of command line tools. Applications from this package are installed to /AppleInternal/Applications instead of /Applications and the command line tools are installed to /usr/local/bin. The only exception to this was AirSwitch which, prior to HomeDiagnostic.pkg build 18B86, was installed to /Applications.

It should be noted that the name of the actual package is HomeDiagnostic.pkg and not HomeDiagnostics.pkg

HomeDiagnostic.pkg

The following apps are included in most builds: PurpleRestore, PurpleSNIFF, PurpleFAT, SkankPhone, SkankTunes/FakeTunes, ScreenShotr, DCSD, PurpleBuildSanitizer, iOS Menu, iPhone Menu, PurpleConsole, PowerWarriorX, iRemoteX and CarDisplaySim.

Applications by Build

(Work in progress) Fields missing a value (will just have --) need to be filled in. Most of these are because the app won't stay open long enough to see more version info or no other version number is provided by the app.
