With the COBRA 7.55 it is possible to block the Homebrews you want. It is a safety measure in simple terms, as starting Homebrew while connected to the PSN is highly risky for the Ban. You can choose to block only some Homebrews, or even all of them, as it is a procedure to do manually by going to choose which App to block.

On PC, create a text file. Rename the text file as follows: blacklist.cfg
You will be asked whether to continue as you will also change the file extension. Click on YES.
Open the file with notepad or any text editor.
Well, here you have to enter the TitleIDs of the Homebrews you want to block. One for each line. How do you get the Title of your Homebrews? But of course.
Go to the directory dev_hdd0 / game / on your PS3. Here you will find the list of Apps and Games installed in the Console. Look for the Titleid of the Homebrews, some are obvious as for example for ManaGunz its TitleID is MANAGUNZ0. For other Apps it is different, as it has been assigned a TitleID of an existing Game to make them appear Stealth in the eyes of the SONY. How to do it then? Enter the directory, inside you will find an ICON0.PNG file. Open it directly from the PS3. That file is the main image of the Game or App, so from its Image you understand if it is a Game and your Homebrew.
Transcribe the TitleIDs of the Apps you want inside the blacklist.cfg file, one for each line.
Now save and copy the file to the directory: dev_hdd0 / tmp / HERE !!
It is also possible to create the whitelist.cfg file, useful if you want to do tests. It works the same way as the blacklist.
