Never understood why people don't backup their databases. It's like not having a nand backup.
Never did I. When hacking, it’s even more « obvious « to backup every « single byte », that you can with the tools available.
It’s like if you we’re running your computer for over a year, without doing a « single backup « .

not that I know of, you'd need access to system_data/priv/mms . that's where four of the main databases are stored including the one for games and the one for dlc.

the notifications.db can actually be deleted with no harm to the system. it will be recreated in the same location as if nothing has been installed. games and content will still work, but the notifications section won't list what's been downloaded or installed anymore.

Ah, okay. That's fair.

I found that out from @Leeful , and I've tested it. it may be good to prevent sony from snooping at what you've installed. it's either a pkg setting or a param.sfo setting that allows you to change the install name from that of the pkg itself (I've seen no uploader use it). that's what sony does, so it will say something like goo sword has been installed instead of the pkg name itself. it may look funny with the pkg name with the name of the uploader mentioned in notifications. that's why I deleted it the first time. I need to do it again at some point, if we can ever sign in. I'm assuming that the notifications.db is sent to sony when you log in, but I don't really know.
