    Hi.

    I searched for this without success, that's why I'm posting this.

    Did somebody ever try to delete the system logs [storage_slc/logs/] without bricking? I know it sounds silly, but they're numbered... something bad might happen if I mess the sequence.

    I wonder because I'm concerned about privacy and ban, while still would like to use online features. :)

    I think they are auto-sent at moment of creation anyway, but still...

    Eh, they're just logs. They're recreated after a crash happened so it's no use, if you delete, a simple Wi-Fi crash will be listed and new log file will be created.

    Yeah, I don't care about new logs, I care about the old logs I have (intentionally crashing the system, launching illegal stuff, etc...)
    Not sure if they are already sent, but I guess they are.

    Sent? They're just in console memory, that's all.

    If you are sure about this, then this is a big relief :)
    But what's the point of logging then? Used only if being repaired by them?

    obviously yes, with those logs they could see what leads to crashing if they got the console for repair.

    Sounds great. The only question now is: did somebody attempt to delete them without bricking?

    I deleted them all but sadly, in under 1h, it recreated another 100 logs.
    So it's useless
