stack appears to be an application for connecting multiple iDevices and executing scripts for one or more of them. stack supports color-coding of the app's device icons and labeling with "sticky labels". Devices can be connected via a cable or SSH (using dropbear). Like many other internal applications, stack can also copy device crash logs.
stack scripts are located at
~/Library/Application Support/Stack/Scripts. Default scripts include "Flashr" and "Mount rw", which perform
flashr 00FFFF and
/sbin/mount -uw /, respectively. These are likely intended to be run from the device. Scripts can be edited through the stack application or from their previously-noted folder, where they reside as basic text files with no extension. Scripts edited through the application can be paired with additional information (user: mobile or root, confirmation message), which appear to be saved in a different location than the scripts themselves.
