    the first 8 digits should do as a serial can be the same in the first seven digits andhave a diffrent firmware
    39 CAN/US Gray --- --- XAW1001XXXXXXX 2.2.0 Duhasst0
    40 CAN/US Gray --- --- XAW1001XXXXXXX 2.3.0 Wii8461

    but with eight or more digits you can tell a diffrence
    36 CAN/US Gray Target (BM) 8/19/2017 XAW100193XXXXX 2.3.0 zes
    37 CAN/US Gray BestBuy (BM) 8/17/2017 XAW100196XXXXX 2.3.0 SirByte
    38 CAN/US Gray --- --- XAW1001XXXXXXX 2.2.0 Patodox

    Looks like wololo.net published a story on obtaining the lower firmware switchs and linked back to the google doc I created which has a link back to this thread. Also Essometer and CTCaer got mentioned by name! We famous y'all !!!

    Please continue to add to the sheet so we can get at-least to 100.

    I'm pretty sure you can see the serial through the box on the bottom (without opening it).

    You probably shouldn't be posting your whole serial, just part of it.

    Just bought one from Amazon UK. The release of yet another No No update makes me really nervous. Will post my serial number and firmware as soon as I get it.

    Proud to be Portuguese but I am in USA.
    There is no way to know if a person want to buy the box like in Amazon or any retail stores.
