    If this is for Hacdn its not neccesary anymore, but if its for something else you can open the prodinfo.bin as a text document and you should find "NX" and then a bunch of number near the top. after NX and two of the digits that is your device id

    download the latest version of Goldleaf and select "Browse console memory" from its main menu, choose "PRODINFOF, click on the "ptd" folder, then choose "DeviceIdWithEmsBit.dat" and view the text. that's your device ID.

    you don't have to worry about PRODINFO, it turns out the easiest way to get the device ID is to utilize the latest version of Goldleaf. read my edited post above.

    Don't use CDNSP, it's not working anymore and it can easily ban you.
