    I´m searching for a Homebrew that delete the "Play History" on the "Message Board". (and/or the complete "MessageBoard")
    Is there something like that? When no, its possible to make a homebrew that makes that?

    It's possible to make homebrew that does that.
    The problem is that it's very dangerous because the message board 'posts' are stored in the memory of the wii, so if you delete something, your wii may be (semi-)bricked.
    If you really want this, ask it on the wiibrew forum, and if you know where it's stored, i will create a program for you (and for other people of course) to delete the posts.
    Please contact me @ lesderid(at)hotmail(dot)com if you know something more about it.

    The Logs are stored in /title/00000001/00000002/data/cdb.vff

    Is it possible to delete it without a brick?

    I think we need help from someone, who knows about this.

    The Coder of Playstats can acess to the File and read it, can somebody ask him for help?

    Play history is stored direct on the NAND, or it has a reserved space?
    I wonder that because my play history is gigantic.

    I have a huge play history that spans all the way back to November 22 2006, the day I bought my Wii. My question is does the play history really take up all that much space? My niece and nephews have saved a million pictures from Mario Kart and Mario Galaxy to it. How many blocks does it take up? And isn't it supposed to recycle the older history when it runs out of space instead of growing to an infinite size? Also does deleting the play history even free up blocks that are available to the user?

    If your using a homebrew like playstats to display your history then you might get weird results. I think its more a flaw of playstats then a bug in history. According to playstats my Wii has been played for over 126 years with an average play time of 526 days per session.

    the "playstat" file is always the same size. having more logs doesnt make it take up any more space. and the wii will not be bricked if you delete it completely. when the system menu starts, if will create this file if missing.

    you can do it in sneek and see. it takes a while for the system menu to make this file in sneek, but eventually it will start up.
