121w ago - Today smokin has made available Wipe History version 1.2 followed by v2.0 while Chossy has released EraseMe v1.1 which also generates a fake activity log, and both PKG applications clear out the PS3 history so Sony won't know what games or homebrew application IDs have been used on the console when connecting to PSN.
Download: Wipe History v1.2 for PS3 / Wipe History v2.0 for PS3 / Wipe History v2.0 for PS3 3.41 + Waninkoko CFW 3.55 / EraseMe v1.1 GeoHot for PS3 / EraseMe v1.1 Kmeaw for PS3 / EraseMe v1.1 Source Code
On Wipe History, to quote: The thought behind this program, is to run it prior to going online onto the PSN, to remove your play logs from Sony's peering eyes. It is possible that by deleting these logs, it will protect your console from the threat of being banned. To use the app, run it via the XMB, your screen will flicker black and return you back to the XMB as normal.
This is my first ps3 homebrew app, it clears your history (ie.,boot_history.dat) so Sony doesn't know what games or homebrew you have ran.
Most homebrew apps in .pkg form use an id which goes to a file that gets uploaded to sony when you sign into psn, obviously homebrew apps have their own id that sony doesn't recognize which could potentially get you banned.
This app clears that history so just run it after you run homebrew, It will do ALL accounts on your ps3.
When you run it the screen will go black then return you to the xmb.
Get version 2 it deletes pushlist too which is also sent to sony The files are in dev_hdd0/vsh/pushlist/patch.dat and game.dat
On EraseMe v1.1, to quote: After making this app for BeeGee7730 i got to thinking that a blank pushlist is just as bad as one full of homebrew so i quickly edited v1.0 to allow the copying of dummy files as well.
So i have encluded in this version a game.dat/patch.dat/boot_history.dat with 5 genuine games played that can be copied over instead of deleting the pushlist/history.
If you really want some fun after install FTP into the app BLES00132 and hex in some swear words in the game.dat/patch.dat & boot_history.dat in the USRDIR folder then copy them across
Cross will delete all files.
Circle will copy dummy files.
SRC Code Included.
Finally, in related news bazgee has released LogJam Intelligent Log Stealthing POC v1.02 KMEAW for PS3 which cleans up your logs, not by erasing them (easy thing to spot!!), and not by copying the same data to them (again, VERY easy to spot), but by clearing out invalid entries, homebrew, games that don't belong in your region, etc... and replaces them, if needed, with valid games, randomly.
The code is there, written in C, not compilable as is (built with PSL1GHT), but authors of Backup Managers are welcome to incorporate the "LogJam" Stealthing routines. It's packaged for installation with KMEAW firmware. If somebody wants to repackage it for others, go for it.

Lol, Blaze King is surgically attached to fireplaces
Besides that: If sony wanted to protect PSN so much, they would have pushed a "security update" already. They're looking at their most profitable right now and it damn sure isn't PSN. They're coming up with a new strategy because the PSN excuse is tired now.
They're definitely going to ban people who hack games if the glitch requires modification of code to do. They deserved to get banned from PSN altogether. After the OtherOS situation, Sony is playing it cool by not taking anything from anybody; as long as they're not messing up the experiences of others on PSN. They most definitely are not trying to touch people who are using custom firmware but still buying retail games and stuff from PSN. They will not make the mistake of stereotyping their fanbase again. They're stuck in a legal grey area.
If anything, they'll look at your PSN log and see new game, new game, cfw, new game, new game, psn purchase, psn purchase and will have no clue as to how to handle you without it causing another massive media uproar. Straight to the bone pirates are the ones who are screwed and need to hide.
Blazeking my apologies if you took offense.. I wasn't trying to be insulting, just making a humorous point as my little laughing guy at the end should have told you. It's not my fault the word/name BlazeKing is synonymous with weed smoking, I could really care less if you do or not, it was just a joke making light of the matter. Like the "last night" thing. It's normally something one would say about themselves. If you had a better sense of humor, I wouldn't be explaining mine.
Sure! Sony is worried about their BDs right now; but along with everything else as well, including their precious PSN. They don't want you to use any of their services unless it's exactly the way they want you to, regardless of the revenue they happen to making at this time. Have you read any of their EULA(s) lately? Just because they haven't started banning people yet, doesn't mean it won't start any day now and certainly not because their making a few bucks.
Sony was born in 1945 right after WWII and went commercial in 1955 and is one of the top 5 media empires in the world with an annual income over 77 billion dollars. Their shares are currently worth 35 bucks a pop which is up 10 bucks from this time last year. Sure their worth more now than say 5 years ago, but that should be expected from any successful business, but to say they just now became profitable is absurd and has no factual backing what-so-ever.
I'm not sure whose foot is in whose mouth but I don't believe it's mine. Everything I have said (in both posts) is true and based in fact, not rumors or opinions; no matter how popular they may be or believable they may sound.
We're not talking about xbox here now are we? No. We're talking about sony... "They will remain profitable no matter what they do!"
They just recently became profitable. Majority of those who gave money to PSN have jailbroken their consoles and still pay for stuff on PSN. "You may have been born at night, but surely it wasn't last night" I was born in the morning, thank you.
"As soon as the news hit the street that their PSN fortress was compromised they had a team of 6 figure salaried techs working on ways to stop it; and stop you from accessing it! Companies like $ony will spend 2 billion just to save 2 million."
Wrong. They're worrying about BD games right now and how to secure them, PSN is still generating cash from those who have jailbroken and still have access to the store. For sony to cut them off even thought they are still generating income from said "hackers" would be a stupid move. Why do you think SCE has not pushed an update just to kick all jailbroken systems off of PSN?
"Put the lighter down and step away from the bowl" I don't smoke weed. My name is derived from two names: Blaze (Fire) and King (of the jungle/ Lion). Don't put your foot in your mouth next time and try not to be so insulting. I didn't insult you or anybody else.
