Board Identification

To differentiate each C2 board, you can use 16-digit S/N or MAC that are written on C2 manufacturing line.


Your kernel version should be 3.14.29-35 or higher to get the full 16 digit of unique ID.

Board Identification using usid

Using the following node, you can get the 16-digit board ID.

cat /sys/class/efuse/usid
odroid@odroid64:~$ cat /sys/class/efuse/usid
Simple test example
$ gcc -o get_usid get_usid.c
odroid@odroid64:~$ ./get_usid 
S/N is 'HKC2123456789ABC'
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#define SYSFS_CLASS_USID        "/sys/class/efuse/usid"
#define USID_LEN        16
int main(int argc, char *argv[])
        int fd, len;
        char buf[USID_LEN];
        fd = open(SYSFS_CLASS_USID, O_RDONLY);
        if (fd < 0)
                printf("Open error! \n");
        read(fd, buf, USID_LEN);
        printf("S/N is '%s'\n", buf);
        return 0;

Board Identification using MAC

Or the unique MAC can be used to define your board.

odroid@odroid64:~$ ip add | grep link/ether
    link/ether 00:12:34:56:78:9A brd ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff

S/N and MAC information on booting console

If you need to confirm if the value that you read is right one, check booting log message on console.

Board Identification using usid

On Android platform, you can use Property to get board ID with 'ro.serialno' or 'ro.boot.serialno'.

shell@odroidc2:/ $ getprop ro.serialno                                         
shell@odroidc2:/ $ getprop ro.boot.serialno                                    

The native property_get method from a java app using jni can be a general and easy way.

#include <cutils/perperties.h>
void get_serialno(void) {
    char serialno[16];
    perperty_get("ro.serialno", serialno, "");
    // or
    perperty_get("ro.bootserialno", serialno, "");
