Incognito mode in modern browses is a special mode where your browsing history is not recorded. The recent ban wave that hit CFW users is believed to have happened due to custom made CIAs installed and run from the 3DS Home Menu. After that, some people who didn't get banned started being more cautious. Aside from disabling Spotpass and Friendlist "Playing" options I've been avoiding to run any custom made CIAs on my 3DS. The new Luma 8.0 with HBMenu2.0 helped a lot with this, since the apps run throught it don't get logged if you use the set app entry point option. But there are some apps that don't have a 3dsx version or don't work very well. This is an option I started using for those cases. What is needed CFW Godmode9 What does this do? We will rename the PTM savegame so the system creates a new one without the previous information of your used titles. This way, any CIA Homebrew run during this window of time will be logged in this temporary PTM save and won't affect your previous PTM save. Why would I do it? I do it to leave my activity log and PTM "clean", looking like a retail unit. WARNING: READ THIS BEFORE STARTING IF YOU CHANGE THINGS OTHER THAN THOSE WRITTEN HERE WITH GODMODE9 YOU MAY BRICK YOUR SYSTEM. STEP BY STEP TURNING "INCOGNITO" MODE ON 1. Boot into GodMode9. 2. Select "[1:] SYSNAND CTRNAND" 3. Select "data" 4. Select the id of your system (32 characters hexadecimal folder name) 5. Select "sysdata" 6. Select "00010022" (This is the PTM save data folder) 7. You will find a single file named "00000000" there. Hold R then press X, this will prompt you to rename the file. Rename it to "10000000" (You will be asked to unlock writing to SYSNAND CTRNAND). 8. Press START to reboot the system. 9. DO NOT OPEN THE ACTIVITY LOG DURING THIS TIME (If you do it'll merge your temporary PTM data with your activity log save data). 10. Install and/or launch any CIAs needed. Use them to your heart's content. (Remember to keep Wifi turned off just to be safer). Please note: Any game time played during this time frame will not be added to your activity log unless you run the activity log during the "incognito" mode. Again, please do not do that. You will make me cry. TURNING "INCOGNITO" MODE OFF 1. Finish using your homebrew CIA. Optional: Uninstall every custom CIAs before proceeding. 2. Turn the 3DS OFF and boot GodMode9. 3. Select "[1:] SYSNAND CTRNAND" 4. Select "data" 5. Select the id of your system (32 char hexadecimal folder name) 6. Select "sysdata" 7. Select "00010022" (PTM save data folder) 8. There will be 2 files inside the folder. Navigate to the "00000000", press X confirm to delete it. You will be asked to unlock SYSNAND writing. 9. Navigate to the "10000000" file. This is your original PTM save file that we renamed earlier. 10. Hold R and Press X to rename. Rename it to "00000000" Press START to reboot the system. Profit.
