122w 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.

Hi guys, I have tried this program but after that I tried to play Fallout New Vegas loaded from gaia manager and I showed this error: sSYSUtil_AutoSaveWarning: No Default String. Must be loaded from INIFile.
It's a little outdated and I've learnt some new things - some of those 'ideas' are a little wrong - mainly the creation of the unique key [can't even remember the proper name for it lol]
But the hex editing it what you'll need to do. Changing the Game ID is a fairy simply method and looks to be the best bit. The other copy of info is probably over kill, but I wanted to make sure that people were hidden from Sony.
Using a PSN game or demo is best because they can be installed. As far as renaiming things - you can kinda do that - once you learn about the inner workings of a PKG file, you'll see images that could be replaced for your own. Just make sure that the Game ID is that off a game. The whole reason is to log that ID so that it looks legit and not LAUN12345
Also note - the tutorial is old and Mods might not want it to be re-opened, so if anyone has any troubles they can contact me here or email, or open a page in the help section. Best of luck.
Does anyone have a guide on how to stealth a app anyways? Apart from helping us hide from Sony...
I'd personally LOVE to be able to 'stamp' my own... renaming Gaia Manager or Open Manager to "Call of Duty 9: Space Warfare" would be alot of fun just to mess with my friends on PSN as they can see what app your running/game playing.
