MOBI Output: Use the book uuid as the ASIN field and set cdetype to EBOK to allow Amazon furthest read tracking to work with calibre generated MOBI files.

I verified it with several books that I converted from .pdf to .mobi, and they are syncing perfectly between my Kindle and Kindle for iPhone (both directions, no problems).
Thanks so much Kovid!!
So I was successful in doing this same thing, here's my question:
In order to get the ASIN field and set cdetype to EBOK is it just a matter of re-converting a mobi file within Calibre or does it require one to download metadata again.
THe book I tested this on, all I did was re-convert the current mobi book (which was converted using an older version of Calibre) again. This overwrote my old mobi file with a new one. Wasn't sure if it was just the re-converting that added the ASIN or did I need to reload metadata?
If it doesn't require downloading metadata again - then all I have to do is re-convert my entire library using the new version of Calibre to ensure that the ASIN and other key fields are now a part of the metadata which allows me to snych my Kindle and my iPhone.
