    Every time I try to enable HEN it completely freezes my ps3. Now I would like to fully uninstall HEN and start over again. How can I fully uninstall hen (with the boot logo, enable hen on the game category, etc) so I can start over? Losing data is not a problem for me.

    You probably installed some mod with a different HEN enabler or a plugin is causing the freeze.

    You could try a blank boot_plugins.txt file on usb000, it will stop any plugins from loading and allow you to remove the plugin.

    You can also use the web browser with an online enabler to enable it now, then you can just install the latest HEN pkg. No need to format or reinstall HFW really.

    I'm not sure why that would be, unless you had a bad plugin on there from a previous version. It also could have been one of the older bugs that caused a freeze that have mostly been fixed now on 3.0.0. such as browser close confirmation enabled bug, no internet when checking for update bug, DVD in drive bug etc.

    If you mean HEN Toolbox. Yeah it includes an old enabler, so it will have the same issue. use the hen toolbox pkg from the end of the thread if you want to use it on 3.0.0.

    If you have issues just do what I said, use a online enabler until you have fixed it. Basically when you install an XMB mod that causes HEN enabler to freeze, 90% chance the mod has just swapped the categroy_game.xml, that XML is very important on HEN as it contains the javascript code for HEN enabler, this has the path of the PS3HEN.BIN hardcoded, and the FW version hardcoded. There have been lots of paths and version so there are lots of different HEN enablers.

    I can not be arsed updating the whole 50MB toolbox pkg just for a few byte change in HEN enabler JS every time it changes, so I just leave it to the user to figure out how to add the latest enabler JS to the Toolbox category_game.xml.

    You should have seen the red warnings saying its only for 4.84.2. There is a pkg linked by someone in the HEN Toolbox thread that works on HFW 4.85 and HEN 3.0.0 (bin on flash) I think. I have not tried it.
