Re: how to get device uuid?

AFAIK the chance is negligible. I haven't investigated how Qt generates them, but usually guid contains info such as network card mac address to make it even less likely to intersect with other guids, plus some random part. Also it's very big (128 bits).

Re: how to get device uuid?

You can try using deviceinfo_get_dentifying_data() which will give you PIN and Serial Number that is more than enough to uniaquely identify a device.
