    So the new Tinfoil has Incognito built right in. I used it on my new Emunand to install Incognito, but when I looked in the SD card to delete prodinfo.bin it wasn't there. The thing is, when wiping my serial number, it asked for a password. This password is needed to restore the prodinfo.bin, which tells me it could be encrypted. Anyway, I just want to make sure it's safe. I know it should be fine for protecting from a ban, but will it protect me from Homebrew applications that record such data? Should I run Incognito RCM to permanently delete it just in case? I already have a prodinfo.bin backed up on my pc anyway, plus this Emunand has NSPs so it will never touch Nintendo Servers, I have a clean Sysnand for that. I just don't want my prodinfo.bin stolen so I don't get my Sysnand banned. Thanks!

    If you're this paranoid, you should not be running CFW in my opinion.

    It asks for a password because it stores the encrypted backup in your nand so you can’t lose it.

    nothing can read the backup without your password.

    Hey Blawar,

    I was just wondering on what location within nand the prodinfo is stored?

    Cheers.

    Well since this thread is hot, I will ask. It is safe to update FW with prodinfo erased? Has it ever happened that Nintendo changes the prodinfo with an update? So Do I need to make a backup every time I Update FW?

    Hello, it stores the backup, encrypted with the user supplied password, in an unused section of the cal0 partition.
