    I am running Hen on hfw 4.84 Superslim with
    Multiman, mannagunz and webman installed

    When i use multiman to load my iso i get a disc with question mark titled "Unsupported Data"
    and on running it i get a message "this version of ps3 is incompatible with ps2 software"

    Help required, i know people run ps2 isos on superslim but how?

    I have no idea about this HEN thing but if you were on CFW I would check if Cobra was enabled...
    Does Cobra exist on HEN even?

    According to the PS3 HEN FAQ:
    PS3 has ISO support on HEN, but not PS2 or PSP. At least for now, it's PKG format only. Hope this helps.

    No ps2 ISO support on hen. You can use the HAN pkg methods, also the Latest HEN 2.0.2 now has support for ISO.BIN.ENC files.

    HEN is basically achieved due to Cobra. Lvl2 protections are still in place is why we don't have PS2 ISO support. Other then that most end user Cobra functions are in place.

    I see, well if HEN is based of Cobra... How is it done? How does HEN work? Is it a LV1 exploit of some sort since the LV2 protections are still there?

    How can I launch ISO.BIN.ENC through webman MOD? I have already installed ps2 rap file. I have another simple question:Webman MOD has Select+L2+ Triangle combo for PS2 classics Mode. What is this mode? How can i use it?

    Hen is based on cobra because it’s a cfw by itself and features a lot of stuff you would expect from cfw. We didn’t NEED cobra but it sure made work easy while supporting vast majority of homebrew out

    Also there is no lv2 protection left. Lv2 is GameOS lpar while ps2 is in itself a different lpar, it’s itself an lv2....a different lv2. We have lv2 exploit but we don’t have the emu exploit(and why the need even? Lol)

    Anyways the thing that I cared most was about ps3 titles since we can use pcsx2 with better compatibility anyways with higher resolution set. Whereas rpcs3 either requires high end hardware or has incompatible titles.

    It's been a while for some reason I thought the PS2 was lvl2 but now that I think about it it is lvl2 just the GameOS is unloaded and the PS2 emu is then loaded correct?

    I think so yes, since there is no ingame XMB on PS2 games + you have to reconnect the controller whenever you wan't to play a PS2 game.
    I have a feeling that this means that GameOS is indeed unloaded

    It is I just have been away for over a year due to some personal issues. I need to brush up on my knowledge a bit. Luckily we have some amazing devs who are very helpful with these things and don't suffer from elitism in the PS3 scene and continue to be helpful day in and day out.

    It's a learning curve for sure. I have been around since the first 3.41 days and a member of this site since day 1 before it was public as @STLcardsWS asked me to be a mod as I was one on PSX-Scene for quiet some time as well. I'm just "learning" HEN right now but it more or less has all the features of a CFW system aside from Linux and PS2 ISO support for end users.

    I'm a small fish bro I don't know much as I still find stuff out to this day. The scene has come so far. I recall when I still had to use a dongle for Cobra features. Then one day @STLcardsWS asked the dev if they would release the source code as they had moved on to the Cobra ODE. Then @habib released the first Cobra CFW and @Joonie started integrating it into Rebug 4.53. Soon after they both joined the team and it became the firmware we all know and love today. Back then it was just Cyberskunk and EvilSperm. Neither were very active at the time. We were not even sure if the firmware would be continued. There was guys making crappy hybrid CFW's with the latest CEX builds but old DEX that caused bricks. Nowhere near the quality of Rebug and what we have today. Even the new Cobra features has come a very long way since 7.00
