Here's the command I used to dig up this list (run in /var/mobile/Applications):

for f in *; do 
    if [ -f $f/iTunesMetadata.plist ]; then 
        echo -e -n "$(plutil -key itemName $f/iTunesMetadata.plist)\t"; 
    else 
        echo -e -n "No App\t"; 
    fi; 
    /usr/libexec/cydia/du -s $f; 
done

Some of these apps are not installed anymore -- Infinity Blade, for example -- and others are clearly installed twice. This is a problem, obviously, because space is precious on these machines.

How can I determine which apps iTunes believes to be installed, so that I can safely remove the unused duplicates?

    It's a bit tangental, bit there is a SMB daemon for iOS. This would let you use desktop tools to deal with data management. It is (Of course) Cydia only. Cydia URL: tom.zickel.org/samba It's beta, but it works pretty well. – Fake Name Mar 27 '11 at 5:08

The hard easiest way would be to wipe your phone, and re-download all the apps again. You won't pay twice: iTunes is clever enough to know what you already downloaded.

But at this stage, I think you'll be better off. It also gives you the confidence that you've done something from scratch. And I think the time it takes will outweigh the time to clear out the list of duplicates.

  • I would actually call this the easiest way. – cregox Mar 27 '11 at 16:55

You should be able to clear out all these duplicates by doing a full restore in iTunes, I'm not sure how to check to see which ones are duplicates, though.

  • A full restore isn't in the cards because my warranty replacement came out after 4.3 shipped, so it's not possible for me to restore to 4.2.1; there's no SHSH saved for this device on that OS version. – Chris R Mar 26 '11 at 19:10
  • @ChrisR: Oh, ok. – Mark Szymanski Mar 26 '11 at 19:16
  • Yeah, it's a pain :/ So, I'm trying to identify the place on my machine or on the phone that specifies which apps are installed -- presumably, using the UUID that is their directory name. That's ... tricky. I don't anticipate it being trivial to do. – Chris R Mar 26 '11 at 19:21
