January 28, 2011 // 3:31 pm - Here is PSNinja, a Stealth PS3 Homebrew application and History Wiper for those that didn't update to the new PS3 3.56 Firmware.

I have also released a PSNinja Read Only version which doesn't require wiping history any longer followed by PSNinja v3 and some newer revisions below.

Download: PSNinja Stealth PS3 Homebrew Application and History Wiper / PSNinja v2 Stealth PS3 Homebrew Application and History Wiper / PSNinja Read Only (No More Wiping History) / PSNinja v3 / PSNinja v3 720p / PSNinja v3.5 / PSNinja v4

This make you appear offline using mecomment, and wipes history. It is stealthed as Mobile Suit Gundam: Crossfire-BLUS30017, if you play this game you suck... Its the second worst game on PS3.


  • Sign off before using, it will not show until you go off then back on if you use it while signed in.
  • In menu press X to appear offline
  • Press Circle to appear online again (it adds a blank mecomment so you can edit your comment normally)
  • Press Triangle to wipe history

I doubt this will save you in any way from Sony but you never know. It's more for fun and to get away from annoying friends.

Should work while playing a game too but i haven't tried it but i will tomorrow. Also it's my first menu, i have a wide screen tv so i'm not sure how it will look at different sizes and resolutions please lmk...

Attached download contains 3.41_waninkoko_3.55 and 3.55geo-kmeaw-wutang.

i doubt a 3.56 cfw will come out, since it has remote connection and a rootkit... sony will know every console that goes on... its too hard to hack a rootkit to randomly display from a list of things you want... the best thing would be is to make a 3.56 that runs on a parallel site for online games...

I came up with this figured it would be useful:

====Read Only====

This application will make the files pertaining to your history ie., boot_history.dat Game.dat and patch.dat, Read only.

This will still be in effect after resetting the system, so essentially no more wiping history ever again.

You MUST disable other apps from erasing history such as multiman, which i use it has a nice ini file you can edit to make it stop doing it here is how for multiman:

Go to its folder via ftp /dev_hdd0/game/BLES80608/USRDIR/options_default.ini

Open it in notepad or whatever and find: clear_activity_logs=1 make it say clear_activity_logs=0

Save and reload it to ftp and now it wont clear history anymore.

I'm sure gaia and other managers have something similar read their readme's.

====== .dat files ======

You can edit these at /dev_hdd0/game/CMOD00000/USRDIR/files those are the fake files that get pushed.

Make them say whatever games you want, so we all dont have the same history.

====== Usage ======

Press Triangle to Wipe and Replace History(Do First)

Press Circle to make files Read Only

Press X to make files writable again

Press Start to exit

If you do use the history options on your manager you will have to do this each time after you run the manager.

All versions attached

The best solution is that the program has 10 different games and it masks randomly a title. This way its safe.

Lol - so true. I hope my original posts of stealthing and the ninja backup method didn't give the maker of the app it's name lol

Giving the app an ID of a blu-ray game, I think is a bad idea. Using a PSN game is much safer. I'd dare say that if the PARAM.SFO is checked it'll give away its self away.

I don't really see a point to faking a game ID. If this app works then shouldn't it overwrite the previously runs apps including it's own. Running backups will log it's own Game ID anyway, so that's ok.

Only when running homebrew will this be a factor as early pkg and Game ID were LAUN12345 or GIAI12345 - mmm though adding to that, I'm guessing running the BM would also be logged. [Hence why changing to Game ID of the BM to that of a PSN title].

I'm also 'taking a stab in the dark' by saying that this app only copies the logs from it's PKG folder overwriting your PS3 log, which we [I'm assuming] could be done via FTP anyway. Still people like to have apps that do simple tasks so why not I guess. It's up to the end user.

It's hard to pick a game that No-One uses, you have to try to find one that as many people as possible will find annoying enough not to buy. Golden Compass would have been a good one too, it's like playing a Nintendo game on the PS3 all you need is a joy stick and a button but it's one of those some one gave to my kid I looked it up and it cost $2 bucks used so I guess that answers the question on quality.

Great job putting it together. Contribute +1

Ehhhhm. Have people actually been completely banned from PSN? I mean, people have been banned from tons of games last 5 years, including myself, never from PSN globally. According to the court issues, Sony has actually lied to their customers by removing the "OtherOS" part as well. I doubt they will start banning people from PSN, as their sales haven't been top the last year. Ban people, alright, they'll go to Microsoft and live free.. doubt they want that.
