    A lot of people don't care about the Activity Log and just want a way to delete its data. And there is people (like myself) that love it and would be interested on an editor that gives them the chance of managing the order in which the icons are displayed quickly, modify the number of hours that they played with the games, add apps they have never used to the Log...
    In my opinion this editor shouldn't be as hard to make as other editors that are much more complex.
    Thank you and I hope that someone gives this idea a chance to become a reality!

    Just looked at mine with godmod9 and it's 1.6MB which is pretty big. Don't know how we could modify system save data tbh. It has a savegame MAC. I'm not aware of any tools currently that can edit those saves, but I could be wrong.

    location
    /data/<16 Digit ID>/sysdata/00020212/00000000

    yours will be 00020222 if europe, 00020202 if japan.

    I've been waiting for something like this to be made for a long time.

    Sure it's possible.
    Offsets seems to be easy to find, should not be hard to make an editor once we found all offsets.

    Ok, offsets are so easy to find.
    I will open a new thread for offsets research, and maybe someone with C#/C++ skills could make an editor.

    interesting idea, but, what would be the purpose besides showing others how much you played a game?

    EDIT: NVM

    Same here. Hope someone can develop a editor, can't wait to correct my amount of played time in certain games :)

    Not sure if this will be useful, but anyway...

    One or two months ago, trying a trick on Pokémon Shuffle (removing the 3DS battery while playing the game, in order to activate a glitch on the Special Shop feature), I generated some sort of "overflow" on my played time. Looks like this is the maximum amount of played time for a single game:

    It's more hard than I thought actually, to find the time.
    I guess I found where the hours amount is stored, I edited it but nothing happen.
    Minutes I can't even find the values

    To access the contents of "0000000" save archives (after decrypting if needed, maybe D9's sd decryptor? no idea) maybe 3dsfuse can be used... I've never really tried to be honest

    Just use JKSM to extract the save

    That's usually long (int64) like how much seconds spent maybe how minutes spent or milliseconds spent though I don't see the point of storing milliseconds since it's minute precision.

    Cannot delete icons even I injected all of (1) PTM save (2) Activity Log save (3) F0000009 extdata backups with Godmode9.
    After restoring all of them, the played but unstored game icons auto-registered again.
    That means the game icons stored at neither of them.

    This is a pretty bad news for whom don't want flashcart/foreign-cart/homebrew icons logged at the Activity Log.

    (Edit)
    Confirmed that the file which can auto-register played but unstored game information is NOT inside the NAND:/data/.

    So, either find it out, or restore the entire NAND backup then inject current NAND:/data/ except PTM / Activity Log save.

    I'd love for this to happen.

    An activity log editor would be nice.
