Android :: How To Read Serial Number On A Samsung Device?
Sep 17, 2010
How to read the device serial number (not IMEI) of a Samsung Android phone (same value that you get when you call 'adb devices') but from within an app or from the device; not using PC/USB/adb.I found a solution for HTC and other devices, which is - to call. Code...
Iam using a command: adb devices and get this: C:>adb devices List of devices attached HT9CTP820385 device My question is: where this serial number comes from? Does it burned on flash of device one time during a manufectoring or adb drivers assignees it dynamically or it comes with release that is burned on device?
I would like to be able to generate unique serial numbers for each Android device for use in unlocking an application. How could I do this? EDIT: The reason is I want to revamp a paid application and provide users who have paid for the old version, which will have a different package name, a way to obtain the full version by downloading an unlikable free version of the application. I would push an update to the old version that would generate and display the code that they could enter to turn the Free version into a fully functional version.
I have the sprint HTC Hero with the latest update and when I'm to create a back up it doesn't let me do it. I then tried to downgrade the phone installing the the Sprint RUU and when I tried to install the AndroidSDK drivers I can't get to see the Serial Number of my device when I search in the command bar (following the steps of the Unlock). I'm using Windows XP with Service Pack 2. Any help will be appreciated.
Two things, please help! When I go to setup ADB, in the cmd dialog box it reads it as "Samsung T929" but doesn't show a specific serial number. Am I okay or is that bad? Then I get to the following line trying to root: data/local/try3 /system/bin/sh Then it tells me that it can't find that file or something. Any ideas?
How can I find the serial number on my epic 4g? (it's a Sprint, Samsung Galaxy S, Epic 4G). The user guide says "the serial number is located on a nameplate inside the battery compartment". There's nothing under the compartment lid, but under the battery there is a "sticker" with many numbers but none of them say "serial number". The numbers I found under the battery and on the box are called "RS-SCK", "RS-KOI", "RS", "MEID - Hex", and "MEID - DEC". Are one of these the actual serial number?I purchased this 4 days ago direct from the Sprint store. All I want to do is get the serial number recorded for my records.
Is there any way to get some type of serial number or unique string, that no other android device should have? It can't be relative to the sim card, I'm looking for some type of hardware identification number...
I have 2 Hero's, one factory unlocked which runs the HTC firmware and a locked Orange Hero that runs the Orange firmware. If i entered the serial number of the factory unlocked phone and downloaded the HTC firmware could i then install that on the Orange handset?
If I run several emulators with -no-window option in one machine. The command "adb devices" shows: List of devices attached emulator-5554 device emulator-5556 device emulator-5558 device However, according to this output, I can't tell the difference between each emulator device at all. I need to know which emulator runs on what AVD, then I can install APKs or send commands to the emulator.How can I recognize each emulator device or get the serial number of emulator after it runs?
So i was trying to root my sprint htc hero. iam coming from windomo so i am a noob. I set up ADB and my serial number comes up after i write cdcd AndroidSDKToolsadb devices (with a space after each slash.) but next to the serial it says offline. Why is this? i tied doing the rooting process and when i write adb push asroot2 /data/local/ a bunch of stuff comes up in cmd and then next when i write adb shell chmod 0755 /data/local/asroot2. It says device offline, why is this and how do i fix it?
My phone has a virtual number also associated with same sim number(Second number). I like to know whether a call coming is to the main number or other number. i.e if my virtual number is 9784585, then using toast, i want to display HTML Code: You are receiving call on your virtual number 9784585

Yes, i know this was already often asked, but no one ever posted the solution. Seems that the "android id" is NOT the serial number, because it requires you to access the Market before it is assigned. The serial number is displayed when you type.
I have android.permission.READ_OWNER_DATA but I can't find any reliable code that would explain how can I read email address of device's owner. And please don't turn this into 'why you wanna do that' thread.

I have got a LG Optimus L5 (known as Swift L5), which I am trying to root. But there is a problem. I have been doing a bit of research, and I have found out that the Optiums L series are read only (the internal storage). And because they are read-only, I cant push the files onto the device, in other words I cant root the device! This is really freaking me out a bit.
