    It can be hard to accomplish from RCM mode I reccon. I wonder if the network card is even active at that stage... hmm?

    Having PRODINFO write protected by default is a safety feature to prevent malicious apps (e.g. brickachu) from messing it up intentionally. At least no one is actively blocking you from using a kip module to disable the write protection.

    Already used the sysmodule a while ago, I was just explaining to you the purpose of this release
    But it seems you're only here to behave like a jerk, I take this opportunity to let you know that everyone would do without your childish rudeness, I now dare to take the risk of trusting your intelligence and hope you won't go any further.

    It would work on sysnand regardless of cfw. For partition-based emunand, it'd probably work if you make a correctly-configured emummc/emummc.ini (I don't know the right configuration for sx emunand, but someone can probably tell you), for file-based it might not work as-is.

    New release:
    https://github.com/jimzrt/Incognito_RCM/releases/tag/v0.2.0
    • more validation
    • code cleanup and refactoring
    And a few screenshots:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    I tested everything pretty meticulously on my own device and haven't had any hiccups yet.
    But I am still missing real test reports! Would be glad for some of you to try it and report back.

    My mistake entirely. I assumed it was closed-source based on some of his previous projects as well as the tirade he went on against open-sourcing his code.

    Only emunand is then required.
    Sysnand is for those who installed cfw on sysnand.

    @jimzrt this seemed to work fine on my 9.0.1 emunand. I was able to make a backup of prodinfo and Atmosphere reports a blank console serial, just like when I previously applied icognito to my 8.1.0 emunand. I didn't test the restore feature.

    This is looking excellent! Any chance you can get it bundled with the home-brew App Store?

    thank you for testing!

    Thanks, will surely apply for adding this to the homebrew app store, but first want to get some testing!
    @feral 's report is the only one so far...

    Hell
    But here’s the thing, there is still hardware unique identifiable information. It doesn’t nuke everything from prodinfo, and there also some console unique stuff in fuses.

    That stuff is only included in the PRODINFOs for systems manufactured using firmware >=9.0.0. None of that new stuff will be on any of our consoles.
