This serial number business is really annoying - the usb device properties have serial number 0123456789ABCDEF on both EE and PE, as result it is not possible to connect ADB over usb to both of them simultaneously. I had to install ADBwireless on EE.

The reason is ro.serialno is empty, ESI did not set up platform properties correctly. The is set and correct though. I was trying to set ro.serialno using setprop in startup scripts but that did not work for me.

No I have to figure out why EE lost hibernate ability after allmine (ermine?), although I set and ro.product.device to edge
Sorry to confuse you.


Getting the real one involves writing SERIAL_NUMBER into that pipe and then reading the output.

Getting the fake allmine sn involves just opening up the /system/serial_number file and reading it.

As part of allmine, I patched the call that android uses to get your device's IMEI to get the fake allmine SN rather than the real one. And then I just get your real serial number and use a 0 to pad it to be long enough to trick google into thinking it's an IMEI. I never considered that EE's would have other characters in their serial. Whoops! We could figure out a way to just make up serials or something.
