    Quick question to all you hackers, i have two iphones and was wondering, when i saved my shsh #'s from each, one began with a 3 and the other began with a 5. Is it correct to assume that the iphone that began with a 5 was manufactured after the one that began with a 3? Thanks Fellas.

    Are you talking about the name of the file saved by TinyUmbrella? I believe that starts with your ECID. How that relates to date of manufacture I don't know. You can find out exactly when your phone was made by looking at your serial number: the furst two digits represent the factory, thethird digit is the year, the fourth and fifth are the week. Mine starts 88930, meaning mine was made in the thirtieth week of 2009 at the Foxconn factory in Shenzen.

    Very appreciated. I've seen some say to look at the serial number but I've never known how to read it. Now I know and will be checking my box when I get home later.
