I need to know the CID of an HTC 10 but,

adb shell getprop ro.cid

is unresponsive. Also

$ fastboot devices
FA**********     fastboot
$ fastboot oem readcid
FAILED (remote: 'unknown command')
fastboot: error: Command failed

Also, grep -ril cid is unsuccessful on root.

How can I get the CID info on my Android device?

It's possible to get cid info with following command.

adb shell getprop|grep cid

$adb shell getprop|grep cid
[ro.boot.cid]: [HTC__M27]

    Why not simply adb shell getprop ro.boot.cid? Jul 26, 2023 at 7:17
  • Generally, getprobe ro.* commands are not efficient in my scenario.
