Home Forums What’s this “hacked” dir in iOS? It contains two files/dirs named “thank” and “you”. I’m not sure if this common to all devices or just mine. (Device-iphone 6, os-12.5)

    So, not sure what that app is, but there’s something suspect about the root directory listing in the clip. When you dump the “/etc” directory it shows an apparmor.d folder. Since iPhones are not running a Linux kernel, and AppArmor is GPL’d, that would make me thing that the app is some sort of emulator that’s running on top of the actual iOS subsystem (similar to cygwin on Windows). So, I don’t think you’re actually getting at your phone’s root directory and you are actually in sandbox.

    Probably made by the app developer. All iOS apps are fully sandboxed and has limited access to certain facilities in the main iOS file system.

    Is your iPhone jailbroken? If it isn’t then like what u/PublicSimple said, it’s just an emulated file system
