I think that your 13 chars MLB script takes 3 first chars of serial for product location (YM8).

Not good for me, as it give 80 for WW. :)


Did you find how to make a CCCC out of a three chars EEE (for example EEE=XDA for a mac Pro 3.1) ?

I'm using CK as location. In SSSS - Production number I've only numbers. In my case the first one is a 0 and converting it from base64 to decimal, results a reasonable production number, in the order of some thousands. So yes it is possible it is in Base64. The EEE code in my case seems to be in the form xEEE not EEEx (x is a number)

Thank you for your help.

Looking at logic board replacement stores, all vendors are selling 2.8, 3.0 and 3.2 GHz MP3.1 board with XDA EEE codes.

They say EEE code is located xxxxxxxxxXDAx.

Looking at your MBP mid2009 above (EEE = 8GC), i see that EEE is not at the end of your MLB.

So, for me, this quad char id from from three char EEE is still a mystery.

Perhaps, this part at the end is not so important for activation...

In my working MacPro3,1 definition "ssss c" are all numbers. W8 as location. Logged straight in iMessage


Thank you for this information.

Have you done a home made MLB or is it a couple of ROM+MLB from another MP3,1?

Is there a proved working method for 13 chars MLB yet ?


It's working with my imac's ROM+MLB on my MP3,1 hack since one week because i was kicked off iMessage with my home made old fashioned "serial+6chars to match 17 chars"

Would like to prepare myself to security enforcement from the fruit company ... :)


Did a mistake in previous post : my MLB should be    YM 8 37 ssss XDA c

Still have a problem with ssss and c chars ...

Thank you all for your researches !

About 13 chars MLB, i'm still confused and i tried to build a MacPro3,1 for my old socket 775 mobo.

I chosed a china made model : YM

Manufactured in 2008, week 37 : 8 37

This board has a 3 digits EEE code : XDA


According to the first page of this thread, the pattern for 13 chars MLB should be "PPYWWSSSSCCCC"

so, for now, i've got : YM 8 37 ssss c XDA


"ssss" stands for "production number within this week" and "c" for a part of "model of hardware part" but no space left to link the MLB to ROM and the single "c" char is a problem.


Is there anyone with a MacPro3,1 MLB example to share with us, helping us to find a clue ?


PS : if the 5 missing chars could be something like TTT + CC , matching the 17 chars MLB pattern, perhaps it will be better...

I think my TTT for this MP3,1 is 406 but i'm not sure  :angel_not:
