    Lightbulb iPhone Serial Number Project List

    Hello all,

    While the dev team is busy working on unlocking the phone I thought we could all do a distributed attack on decrypting the serial number since I haven't seen any details about it anywhere else.

    Reply to this thread with as much info as you can in hopes that we can create a master table to decrypt the serial number and reveal assembly plant location, 5xx or 7xx LCD screen, date of manufacture, etc. At this point I am unsure where the unique serial number digits begin but once we start seeing multiple numbers it should give us a clue. Once we find which information is redundant and common to all iPhones we'll drop it from the collection list.

    Current Thoughts:

    Serial No: #A###*AAAA# where # = digit; A = letter; and * = either digit or letter

    First two characters: 7U = Factory. List includes 7R, 7S, 7T and 7U.
    Third character: 7 = Manufacture year. (2007)
    Fourth and fifth characters: 26 = Manufacture week. (26th week - Jun 24)
    Sixth to Eleventh characters: Can be #AAAA# or AAAAA#. Unique production identifier for each iPhone.


    Serial Number | Store | Screen (5 or 7):
    7R7........ Apple Store, CA (7)
    7R726...... Apple Store, NY (5)
    7R7........ Unknown store "Oak Brook" (7)
    7S7........ Apple Store, IL (7)
    7S7........ Apple Store, OK
    7T7........ Unknown store, IL (5)
    7T72....... Apple Store, CA (7)
    7U7........ Apple Store, NJ (7)
    7U726...... Apple Store, NY (7)
    7U727448XX8 Apple Store, NY (7)
    7U728...... Apple Store, NY (7)


    My info:
    Assembled in China
    Model No: A1203
    Serial No: 7U726#AAAA# (partially masked for anonymity)
    4 or 8GB: 8GB

    Version: 1.0 (1A543a)
    Serial Number: 7U726#AAAA# (partially masked for anonymity)
    Model: MA712
    Modem Firmware: 03.12.06_G

    Firmware Version: 03.12.06_G
    LCD Panel ID: 7455232

    What date did you buy it? July 6
    What state did you buy in? New York
    Did you get it from Apple or AT&T? Apple
    If Apple, Apple Store or Apple.com? Apple Store
    Was it swapped out or a new purchase? New

    Does YouTube work over WiFi? Yes

    My thoughts are a lot of people were bummed about getting a 7xx screen due to the white dots problem. I thought if there was a way to determine if the iPhone in the box you are getting has a 5xx or 7xx screen before you buy it then it might be a good thing.

    People were pooling s/n info to help determine which video game consoles were compatible with certain modchips before buying. That way you could avoid updated board layouts, firmware revisions by checking the s/n before buying.

    Just trying to help. If nobody wants to play thats cool though.

    No, I'm just trying to figure out a correlation between serial number and LCD ID.

    I doubt there is one. Apple surely has all hardware components used for a certain batch of serial numbers listed but I doubt there is a way to find out what specific numbers carry a specific hardware component all the time.

    I try to explain: lets say they're using a 5 series LCD on serials 11111001 to 11111530 and a 7 series LCD on serials 11111531 to 11111999, there is no guarantee that the starting with serial 11112000, a 5 series LCD will be used again. You would need hundreds or more iPhones to be able to make a somehow valid statistical claim about what serial number could carry a certain LCD.

    The problem is that the iPhone doesn't use different ones because there has been an improvement and/or an update to a new one, the iPhone uses different ones simply because of short manufacturer supply, so Apple has to get them from different sources to be able to manufacture the number of iPhones they need/want.

    The idea of yours is interesting but I doubt it would lead to any valuable results.

    If somebody gives me a "scientific" approach to this matter (or in fact knows that Apple uses certain LCD IDs with specific serial number codes), I may change my opinion.

    Eesh. Just trying to help. There have been serial number decryption tables for all the other Apple products.

    If nobody wants to post their serial number, that's fine. No need for everyone to call me on the stupid idea. Just let the post die...

    I think your idea is stupid.



    nah just kidding.

    Give the guy a break. He is trying to help. Maybe there is, indeed, some information hidden in the serial number.

    But I will not help.

    Hey, hey, guys, calm down, this is a great idea.

    But even better, let's decrypt some credit card and social security numbers.
