I just took a look at what I had saved for my iPhone - the S/N for generating the PID is the iPhone identifier number. To get that, you just need to connect your iPhone to your computer, open it in iTunes, and on the Summary page, click on "Serial Number" to see the Identifier. Using control/command-C at this point will copy the number to your clipboard.

Yep, that is the UDID, as I suspected.

I went to get the S/N for my registered iPod Touch and noticed all the S/N's are gone.

Fortunately there are other ways to get the info but I wanted to give everyone a heads up.

I'll be updating the Visual Kindle Guide today to reflect this change.
Add this into the Visual Kindle Guide...

There is a way to get the serial number that Amazon used to display for the iPhone/iPod Touch (though we only have a Touch).

The backup directory that iTunes creates is that number. It is a 41 character string.

Under Vista it's in c:\users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup
Under XP it's in c:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\Application Data\Apple Computer\MobileSync\Backup

Replace USERNAME with whatever the name of the account is.

I have no idea where this is with OS X.

Can you also provide a copy of the altered KindlePID.py script so I can add that as well?

EDIT: Here's how.
Thanks, I'll add that link as well as the info from JSWolf to the wiki (I have to build a page for the iPhone and Touch first)

Yes, what Amazon is using is the UDID. I just did the look at the UDID via iTunes and it is what Amazon was displaying as the serial number.

I assume that works on the Apple version of iTunes. Also, this works for touches as well as iPhones?

This is too funny. It just proves that security by obscurity is no security at all.

When will these people learn that DRM is a waste of time and money?

Yes, it works! I must have copied down generated PID wrong yesterday but I got the right one today.

Even though I have other avenues to get my Amazon ebooks I wanted to get this to work with my Touch.

It works on the iPod Touch as that is what my wife has. And we are using the Windows version of iTunes 8.02.

Doh.. I meant the "Mac" version of iTunes. Of course the Win and Mac are both Apple versions.

I will check it out when I get home to my precious.

But, you have to have the modified script and then you have to know it's the UDID and not the serial number. But if you get the script I linked to Daffy and know that the UDID/Identifier is what you need to use then you can do it. Getting content off the device is going to be the hard part for most if it's not jailbroken.
