I cant find any defined list. I put busybox on the G1 and made a symlink for bb's chown. It wouldnt recognize "chown root:root somefile", so I had to put in the UID and GID numbers instead.

Both the UID and the GID correspond to the same name. Ex: UID 0 is root. GID 0 is the group root.

Here is a list of the ones I have done so far. I havent found anything higher than 1014 other than the ones in the 10000+.

Code:
0 - root
1000 - system
1001 - radio
1002 - bluetooth
1003 - graphics
1004 - input
1005 - audio
1006 - camera
1007 - log
1008 - compass
1009 - mount
1010 - wifi
1011 - adb
1012 - install
1013 - media
1014 - dhcp
10000 - app_0
10001 - app_1
10002 - app_2
10003 - app_3
10004 - app_4
and so on...

Another thing -- it looks like app_<some #> corresponds to one of the added applications (such as an app you downloaded from the market place).

It does look like each app is sandboxed.

I just discovered a file that lists exactly what Android permission is linked to what uid/gid: /system/etc/permissions.xml
