    Hello!

    While attempting to create a file that would change your serial number...(Even though that has almost proven 100% to be impossible)

    I discovered a file that contains some relevant system information such as your iPod's "name".

    The file is called data_ark.plist it is located in: ~/Private/var/root/Library/Lockdown/

    You will see:
    Code:
    <key>-DeviceName</key>
    	<string>iPod's Name</string>
    It will be above:
    Code:
    <key>-FirmwareVersion</key>
    	<string>iBoot-204.2.9</string>
    	<key>-ProtocolVersion</key>
    	<string>1</string>
    	<key>-SBLockdownEverRegisteredKey</key>
    	<false/>
    	<key>-SomebodySetTimeZone</key>
    	<true/>
    	<key>-TimeIntervalSince1970</key>
    	<integer>1206741898</integer>
    	<key>-TimeZone</key>
    	<string>America/New_York</string>
    	<key>-Uses24HourClock</key>
    	<false/>
    	<key>-iTunesHasConnected</key>
    that is near the bottom...

    Thanks,
    Ezra

    what would happen if you put true in place of false in data_ark.plist

    <key>-BrickState</key>
    <false/>

    Nope, maybe corrupt though. But not brick. You could just edit back the file and it would be good.

    I'm not sure why you would want to do this, but this might just interest you

    Code:
    Whereas hostString is an NSString you've set up to handle this information:
    hostString = [[[NSHost currentHost] names] objectAtIndex:1];
    There are three objects in that array.
    0 returns what the device is (ie, iphone).
    1 returns the device name in iTunes (ie, SkyPhone).
    2 returns localhost.
