I'm new to the world of Android and I've read many posts and comments about changing your device IMEI (and another hardware's IDs) but I've also read that there are actually two IMEIs for each device, one display IMEI (one that it is shown when you ask the device for the IMEI code) and one "hardware IME" which is actually imposible to change, so I was wondering if it is possible to ask for the "hardware" IMEI of the phone having an app of your own already installed, or if it is possible to detect an IMEI change from your app. Thanks.

  • Are you asking for how to display the hardware IMEI of the device? – Puspam Adak Apr 14 at 7:16
  • Ultimately, my goal is to identify a device even if the IMEI was changed. – Chiaopi Apr 15 at 12:53
