Getting UDID without iTunes?

Seems like trying to install the 3.0 software and test one of my new apps with one of my beta testers ended up bricking his iPhone... we're trying to figure out what might be wrong, I think it might be something with his UDID in the program portal so is there any way to get the UDID without the assistance of iTunes? Otherwise his iPhone just says it won't activate...

Or any other ideas would be great too.

The UDID is printed on the sim tray, isn't it?

Otherwise, the only otherplace I can think to look is in the About section in Settings (but that won't help on a bricked iPhone).

Install SDK 3.0, then start up xCode, select the phone on the left pane and it will give you the UDID.

This is the one that worked, and thankfully we were able to fix this.

It was scary there for a minute. There were no options to restore to 2.2.1 or anything...

The easiest way I know of is to grab a copy of iBeta and use it...

Smile Find UDID with Apple's "iPhone Configuration Utility" for Enterprises

http://www.apple.com/support/iphone/enterprise/

Install Apple's "iPhone Configuration Utility" (Windows or MAC) and it will display the UDID and allow you to export that data to a text file for easy copy & paste into your Apple Dev Portal.

This works especially great if you updated the iPhone to 3.0 before properly entering its UDID in the Dev Portal area...and saved tons of time and headaches!

Good luck!

after long frantic searching, i found it!!

easiest place for me (hope this helps you) was the iphone backup
I'm running Windows, and my PowerBook broke can't use the SDK, or xCode...sucks

but the iphone backup is named "{UDID} - {date}"...
store on Vista at C:\Users\USER\AppData\Roaming\Apple COmputer\MobileSync\Backup\

made my day...after nearly bricking my phone ruined it >,<

You can download Ad Hoc Helper to the iphone and email it to yourself for future reference. Wouldn't have worked in this case though.

How to Get UDID from your PC

Recently I needed to get a UDID for a device I no longer had. This will work to answer the question below too. Start Menu-->Run (or search for win7) and type in regedit.

This will open the Registry Editor. Open the folder tree as follows: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Enum\USB

There will be many folders that start with VID. open them all. The subfolders with a 40 digit code are iDevices. You will have one for each device that has ever connected to that computer. Try them all.

Bump!

It's different in lion, gotta find "About "This Mac" => "More Info..." THEN "USB" and serial number. worked like a charm!

you can find it if you go to the utilities folder > console > from the drop down menu on the left expand "/private/var/log" and select the system.log that contains the activity for the date you had the device attached. you should know the date and approximate time the device was plugged in to make finding the UDID easier.

if you don't know the date/time go to HD>user name>library>preferences>com.apple.iPod.plist> then expand the devices from the drop down menu to display the info (all iPods/iPhones will be listed, so you'll need to know which one you need)

At least in Lion following Terminal command shows information including UDID about devices connected to Xcode.
Code:
defaults read com.apple.dt.Xcode DVTSavediPhoneDevices

You can also download the app "UDID Tool" from the app store (free) and it will display your UDID on your iPhone.

Cheers!

Here an app on the App Store that requires iOS 3.0 or later that gives the udid:
