It's hard to pick a game that No-One uses, you have to try to find one that as many people as possible will find annoying enough not to buy. Golden Compass would have been a good one too, it's like playing a Nintendo game on the PS3 all you need is a joy stick and a button but it's one of those some one gave to my kid I looked it up and it cost $2 bucks used so I guess that answers the question on quality.
Stealthing yourself as a BD game which will never have itself listed as Harddisc Game is a pretty great job of stealthing your app. not.
Lol - so true. I hope my original posts of stealthing and the ninja backup method didn't give the maker of the app it's name lol
Giving the app an ID of a blu-ray game, I think is a bad idea. Using a PSN game is much safer. I'd dare say that if the PARAM.SFO is checked it'll give away its self away.
I don't really see a point to faking a game ID. If this app works then shouldn't it overwrite the previously runs apps including it's own. Running backups will log it's own Game ID anyway, so that's ok.
Only when running homebrew will this be a factor as early pkg and Game ID were LAUN12345 or GIAI12345 - mmm though adding to that, I'm guessing running the BM would also be logged. [Hence why changing to Game ID of the BM to that of a PSN title].
I'm also 'taking a stab in the dark' by saying that this app only copies the logs from it's PKG folder overwriting your PS3 log, which we [I'm assuming] could be done via FTP anyway. Still people like to have apps that do simple tasks so why not I guess. It's up to the end user.

i doubt a 3.56 cfw will come out, since it has remote connection and a rootkit... sony will know every console that goes on... its too hard to hack a rootkit to randomly display from a list of things you want... the best thing would be is to make a 3.56 that runs on a parallel site for online games...
This make you appear offline using mecomment, wipes history, pushes fake history, and clears web history. It is stealthed as Mobile Suit Gundam BLUS30017, if you play this game you suck... Its the second worst game on ps3.
Make selection press X
Wipe History- Deletes history files
Replace History- Replaces History with fake history files found in - dev_hdd0/game/BLUS30017/USRDIR/files
Make History Files read Only- Makes you history files read only, games and homebrew ran will no longer be added to files.
Make History Writable- Make history files writable again
Clear Browser History- Deletes history.xml from webbrowser
Hide From Friends- Makes you appear offline even though you are online.
Be Seen Again- Make you seen by friends again
Notes on making files read only:
This will still be in effect after resetting the system, so essentially no more wiping history ever again.
You MUST disable other apps from erasing history such as multiman, which i use it has a nice ini file you can edit to make it stop doing it here is how for multiman:
Go to its folder via ftp /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/options_default.ini
Open it in notepad or whatever and find: clear_activity_logs=1 make it say clear_activity_logs=0
Save and reload it to ftp and now it wont clear history anymore.
I'm sure gaia and other managers have something similar read their readme's.
