    This might have been answered somewhere else, but I couldn't find it...

    I'm wondering where the counters for Demos are stored (how many times a Demo had been run) in NAND. Also, is there a way to remove/disable the counters?

    it's difficult to adjust to ur new avatar, @Felek666 , my friend, so I'm often shocked by some new person in the wii u scene with many posts. :P

    You can edit one of the game's xml and disable the counters but of course that will require cfw to play the game.... For the counters, i remember seeing them somewhere in... vol\system_slc\proc\demol\db. Never edited this file and it has a header, so take care.

    Ok, so from what I gather it's not so easy to do, or it's not done very often... I don't care so much about disabling the counters, as I prefer not to use CFW if I can help it.. I was wanting more just to reset/manipulate the counters. Thanks for the info!
