    So aslong as I don't use the activity log while using incognito mode,my homebrew apps won't be recorded.Interesting
    you could just back up the 2 files by renaming them and it would do the same thing if you are worried.Once the system creates a new 00000000 files when you reboot,you are in the incognito mode as long as you don't open the activity log.

    I am on 11.4 b9s luma 7.1, do I clear my ptm and activity log and and than I play some legit cart games to fill the activity log so I isn't completely empty so if Nintendo sees it they see one or two games in the log and than I use the incognito mode forever, is it possible

    May sound stupid, but is there a way to delete the actual activity log system app?I mean, I would leave my sysNAND alone, and set Luma to boot from emuNAND so what would happen if you deleted it?

    You might be able to delete the app itself, but I'm pretty sure the system would still be keeping an activity log behind the scenes, you just wouldn't have a way of viewing it.

    I guess you could just delete it in FBI on the titles part.The thing is its installed on the NAND so make shure you make a NAND backup before testing it.

    What we really need is for CFW like Luma to implement features to not send data to Nintendo, not log anything, or send a dummy "clean" log to Nintendo. The only way for Nintendo to know CFW is in use is that they are receiving data from the 3DS itself. since CFW can have new things now like the Rosalina stuff Luma added, a CFW service could run that spoofs or blocks data sent to Ninendo. that would fix the issue completely since the data is generated and sent from the 3DS of which CFWs now have near complete control over.

    I can't see them doing that in the future, as they don't want to tick off Ninty. Instead, use a DNS (or block their servers in a different way) and turn off every option that sends data to Nintendo.

    Just do what I did and hide homebrew cia inside a real cia. Its very similar to the Health and Safety injection.

    Nothing much luma could do to hide anything from nintendo.
    You have to patch things pretty deep into the firmware (nintendo's). As in, manipulate each and every packets sent to the servers, which is kinda out of luma's scope.
    Just blocking packets isnt enough since the 3ds only needs 2 addresses to be able to play online. The rest of the addresses are insignificant, in the context of getting flagged by nintendo.

    conntest.nintendowifi.net
    nasc.nintendowifi.net

    Your 3ds can function well, including online play, with just these 2 being whitelisted (while blacklisting the rest of nintendo.net and nintendowifi.net, of course). As stated by previous people who have sniffed their 3ds, these 2 addresses request all those details that if incriminating, would warrant a flag from nintendo.

    find a small dummy game from the eshop decrypt it and then unpack it. unpack the homebrew cia then make a new CIA that uses the code.bin/romfs form the homebrew and use the dummy game's banner/icon/titleid. its basically what the Heath and Safety injection program does, but it rebuilds to cxi, i just took that base and had it rebuild to CIA in the last step.

    This thread should be in the 3ds ban thread imho, and another thing I deleted the activity and ptm and icon caches with cathulu and it seems everything is wiped as activity log is showing empty its only showing the two cart games I played later on, now do I switch to incognito mode and keep it on for 2-3 days or do I have to get out of the inco mode every time I switch off the console.

    It's best to just turn in on when you need to run some CIA then turn it off right away.

    RE Luma trying to turn off "Send Ninty Data":
    They'd have to literally watch all Nintendo Network data being sent and rewrite it.

    Don't forget that simple things like paid games that you get from freeShop that go online will login to Nintendo Network and it tells Nintendo:
    • Device cert
    • MAC
    • Serial
    • Console ID
    • Game ID
    • If the game is being ran from digital or cartridge
    The last one is a theoretical way they check; check the console ID and find out what games they own on eShop. Do they own this game? If not, how do they have it in any other way but hacks?

    Good idea but which is the real function of use it: be unbanned or something similar to that to don't be banned?

    CIA games as long as they are not out of region should be fine.
    The problem is CIA homebrew.

    Remember the PSN Ninja app that just cleared everything it knew was bad and changed the PS3 app history to r/o? We need an app that applies that same concept temporarily instead of manually applying it in this way.
