    UUID, or Serial Number?
    Whichever one, no.

    UDID, not UUID. You cannot change your UUID.

    There is a file called general.log, somewhere in the root fs.

    there are stuff like IMEI etc, and you can change them i think.

    i don't know what UUID is but i think it's something to do with the iPhone and UDID is the address apple uses to register your device for example to the iPhone Developer Portal for using OS beta's for your device? i think?

    You've got the two mixed up.
    The UDID is th Unique Device ID. It's used on the app store, for approving your iDevice for beta applications. Developers can also have a script in their application to chack if it's pirated, then send your UDID to Apple to be blacklisted so you can't even get it legitimately. BeeJiveIM uses this.
