Question How do I find the PID for my Kindle 2?

I have been buying and reading books from Amazon. I recently discovered that the NYPL offers a large selection of ebooks. They have mobipocket books but I need the PID for my Kindle 2. I read the wiki but the section on Kindle 2 PID has been removed. Is there another set of instructions?
All I want to do is read a library book and let it expire. There is nothing illegal about that. I dont want to buy a Sony reader.

You can get the tools here. Look for Kindle Mobipocket tools 0.2. Then if you're using a DX, apply the patch described here.

It's based on the serial number. See scripts above.

The serial number should be on a sticker on the box it came in.

It's also on the back of the kindle but in tiny tiny print...

You have to use the SN to generate the PID

I had forgotten about that. My kindle has a skin covering the back.

This new web-based tool effectively replaces the kindlepid script: http://kindletools.prestonlee.com/
