If you find there is no difference between the before and after repair data then I am afraid you still have the old faulty board.
Ok, but is replacing the board the only way the shutter count could be reset to zero? If it's not reset, you know the board was replaced, but does that mean that if it was reset, it must have been a board replacement that did it?

Hi
I think the shuttercount is not the important pointer. More important to pinpoint a board replacement would be in my pinion:

1) Manufacture Date
2) Production ID
3) Internal Serial Number?
Data given in 1 - 3 to my mind would change with a new board.

The datum: "Camera has been serviced (has the service bit been set or not?)"
Here I am not sure whether it resets automatically when the board is changed or whether it is set by the technician.

Greetings
