OS detection by checking timestamps of hidden files/folders


Recommended Posts

I've just started looking into the concept of determining the TARGET OS by checking the timestamps of hidden folders on the bb after it has been mounted, e.g. "System Volume Information", etc.... Potentially something involving an ls -halt of the udisk directory but would be good if there are some better ideas to build on this concept.

Has anyone had much experience with this?

I also tried this, without much luck.  I was trying to touch a new file at either [/Volumes/.../mac.txt] or [/meadi/.../linux.txt] etc. in a loop, then check for that file on the bunny side. It sort of worked, but wasn't great. HID only TARGET OS would be great, but I haven't put much time into researching 2-way HID communication possibilities with standard drivers.
