>From the original post, the need for having the same UID comes from the fact 
that you're using D-Bus communication to a session bus. The bus daemon 
enforces that all sockets come from processes under the same UID.

However, that doesn't explain why a system daemon is connecting to a user's 
session bus. That should never happen. Only services inside the session should 
connect to the session bus.

In any case, I still don't understand the problem. You're talking about a pair 
of UIDs and flashing the device...
