    UPDATE v1.01/.02 have been released v2.0 has been released
    Huge news for nonCFW compatible
    PS3 Models (
    SuperSlims and late Slim Models) as anonymous developer's have dropped a huge bombshell with the release of PS3HEN. Just recently we seen the release of HFW (Hybrid Firmware) for the PS3, proving once again that the development scene is still alive and kicking to bring a new window of exploration to 4.84 by bringing back a patched webkit (from 4.82) in a rather clever approach. Which restored the PS3Xploit Tools for 4.84 for both Custom Firmware Compatible Models (for CFW installs) and for nonCFW models that utilized the less powerful etHANel (aka HAN) exploit that with today's news will be an obsolete hack with the emergence of the PlayStation3 first HEN or otherwise known as a Homebrew ENabler. So, yes that means SuperSlim Console's and late Slims PS3 Models (aka nonCFW models) can now FINALLY enjoy PS3 Homebrew at last, but that is not all this PS3HEN release brings to the table. As there is a number of CFW patches / features that come along for the ride as well, while not on quite par with CFW functionality completely it does provide a number of functions that is very exciting and very close to a CFW experience (especially with homebrew support)..Some additional features include things like Boot-Plugin Support, BDISO Support, Cinavia patches are just a few of the features/patches you can see outlined in the release notes:


    This has been a long journey for the SuperSlim's/late slims who were left on the outside of the community for a very long time and then finally got an introduction to hacks with the HAN exploit and now with a more powerful HEN that has now emerged finally there will be plenty of new possibilities.

    • UPDATED v1.01 /.02 Released

      • Renamed stackframe_v11.bin to stackframe.bin
      • Added boot_plugins_nocobra.txt
      • Added USB and HDD offline packages
      • HAN-signed PS3HENtai package
      • Fixed missing "Enable HEN" icon while CFW files are being used, with new USB and HDD offline packages

      A Powerful Homebrew ENabler (HEN) for nonCFW compatible PS3 Models

      What is HEN?:
      • HEN stands for Homebrew ENabler. it also consists of many more new functions relatively close to a Custom Firmware (CFW)

      How does it work?:
      • Install HAN Enabler. Copy PS3HEN.BIN, HENTAI.pkg and stackframe.bin(READ:rename) to /dev_usb000 and run the HTML.
      • Once done, go to Package manager and install the HENTAI.pkg and reboot console
      • From now on to enable HEN simply use usb000 stackframe.bin and PS3HEN.BIN and run html...HEN ENABLED!

      Noob Friendly Instructions (Added by thanks @Louay)
      • Install HFW 4.84.2 (Found here) from Official firmware 4.84
      • Then use HAN Installer to get Package Manger in XMB Game colmun
      • Copy the 2 BINs (PS3HEN.bin + stackframe.bin) from download file (of PS3HEN v1.0.0) along with HENTAI.pkg to root of USB
      • Install the HENTAI PKG via Package Manager on the XMB
      • Use HEN Enabler @ website (there is offline see @esc0rtd3w twitter post or next tab)
      • Now HEN is Enabled launch your chosen homebrew and run if it give you 80010017 then re use HEN Enabler cause it didn't activate properly

      FEATURES (as of v1.00):

      • ManaGunz backup manager works best for jb rips(ISO not supported)!
      • MULTIMAN works too but compatibility is not the same.
      • PSXISO Support is there!!!!
      • BD/DVD Region patches
      • BDISO support(stutter with xmb, use showtime)
      • BOOT-PLUGINS WORK location "/dev_usb000/boot_plugins_nocobra.txt"(Use webman original one and not the mod one. also disable content scan on boot in settings)
      • Discless games work with disc icon!
      • Syscall 6 added
      • Syscall 7 added (address>0x8000000000352230) and disabled overwriting syscall 0->15
      • Syscall 15 added
      • Syscall 8 opcodes added for detection HEN and for advanced lv2 poke(read DEVELOPER SECTION)
      • Whole kernel memory RWX (execute kernel payload like this at high locations or hook syscalls etc)
      • PS3MAPI support for modding
      • Debug PKG install
      • Homebrew resigned for 3.55 and less support!
      • Homebrew Root Flags enabled!
      • HAN PKG insall support
      • PSN Connectivity
      • All process executed after HEN have rwx permissions!
      • HAN Enabled by default!
      • CFW settings
      • Retail/DEBUG pkg installation
      • Unlink to Delete

      • Download debug pkg on retail
      • Remote play ignores SFO check
      • Cinavia protection
      • videoplayer_plugin
      • DVD region check (not cracking RCE)
      • REBUG themed RCO & XML
      • AIO copy

      • if you get error 80010017 launching homebrew that simply means HEN failure, restart console and try again!(restart is important!)
      • also try deleting cache, browsing data, cookies and the likes from browser, make the exploit page the home page
      • Added by psx-place (via @esc0rtd3w) -msg source
      • without boot_plugins_nocobra.txt file on usb000 it wont load WebMan at /dev_hdd0/plugins/webftp_server.sprx (/boot_plugins_nocobra.txt/file) Note: its actually not a problem or an issue. it prevents bad plugins from running
      • Added by psx-place (via @habib) - msg Source
        Error Code 80028f22 occurs with trying to launch currently unsupported ISO games (ps3)
      • Added by psx-place (via @habib)
        Black screen occurs on homebrew when not re-signed or rarely occurs for no reason (hen failure)

      • #define SYSCALL8_OPCODE_IS_HEN 0x1337
      • using this if return 0x1337 its hen
      • ADVANCED POKE:syscall8(0x7003, addr, value);
      • this allows poking any location in lv2 memory BUT you have to restore original value before exiting to another application or exiting to xmb.USE WISELY OTHERWISE PS3 SHUTS DOWN
      • BDMIRROR:Managunz FTW!(please use Cobra payload because by default its MULTIMAN)
      • NOTE:mounting dev_blind will actually mount dev_flash. change files directly from dev_flash instead or hdd0/plugins/CFW/
      • Kernel Mode returns 0x53434500 on success to user webkit 0x8a000000. its good to measure HEN success. right now hen is already close to or is 100%


      • CONNECTION TO PSN SHOULD BE DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DISABLING CFW SYSCALLS MAY NOT HIDE YOUR HEN WHILE ON PSN (a popular method used by CFW user's may not be suited for PS3HEN user's)
      • DO NOT INSTALL CCAPI (ControlConsole API)

    • Apps / Utilities / Tools updated for PS3HEN Support (if needed)

    • F.A.Q.
      This section has been added by

      Q.) What is the differences between PS3HEN & Custom Firmware?

      A.) (via habib) So, the limitations of hen
      1.resigning is needed of homebrews!
      2.some homebrews need updates to support(READ:Readme)
      3.erk dumper or tools such as IDPSet are not possible
      4.ps3 iso are not possible
      5.(could be fixed with some reversing) NPDRM paid licenses won’t work if not signed with HAN key(tools such as reactpsn need update or fix in hen needed)
      6.(BUG)since NPDRM paid licenses won’t work when HEN enabled(thus HAN with it), original paid content won’t work without resign or when hen enabled
      7.its just not permenant like CFW​

    UPDATED v2.0.0
    SEE: PS3HEN v2.0.0

    See the (Work In Progress) PS3 Starter Guide for PS3 HEN user's

      One question, how exactly do I get homebrew to work? Tried both multiman and snes9x and neither of them work (both were 3.55 versions)
    3. kadorna2
      try newer versions of the apps, some ancient apps signed for 3.55 and below won't even work on cfw

      Error 80010017 means retry. Make page homepage and delete cache, history of browser

      Infact only 3.55 and less homebrew will work. Must be signed to 3.55 or low

      one of the important "homebrews" is the fan controlling by webmanmod. is this working or is there any homebrew app to use custom fan settings ? I don't like when my PS3 runs at 10% Fan speed by 80°C I like more 60°C by 30% ^^
    7. PChaos
      does SPRX menus works?

    9. Exiles
      Does this allow for SPRX menus to work?

      how does it works?
      my ps3 ss still in 4.82, must update to 4.84?
      if HEN it works, also works for old games such like Kingdom Heats 2.5; Devil May Cry 4, Yakuza etc....
    11. sebastianyyz
      Great news, thank you
    12. Louay
      You must update to HFW 4.84 and no need to worry now games without update and one that have problem will work like on CFW Compatible Console cause this HEN give you acess to use Homebrew so ManaGunZ or multiman(they say not same compatiblity as on CFW console)
      so no need to install pkg or use pkg linker..... install game pkg only if it doesn't exist in disc version
      so generaly games that were not work on OFW/HFW/HAN will work now :)

      Been messing with this for hours, works great. Cheers for helping keep the PS3 scene alive!
    14. habib
      yes because eboot is 3.41
      all 4.8x stuff works. just resign to 3.55 or less because first ecdsa must be valid

      How to play games that are not updated ...How do I do a license?
    17. Louay
      Think like this you are on CFW Console and you launch game from multiMan(mmCM) or ManaGunz did you need to update each game to play ??? no
      Previously Update is need in order for a game to work cause it have NPDRM signature from $ONY but CFW eboots are resigned by people so CFW Eboot installed directly will not work on OFW that's why it must be replaced from the one in Update

      ¿there will be the possibility of having a mod fan like in cfw?
    19. moua3d
      Can I now use RTM TOOLS / FTP SERVER / MULTIMAN /
    20. Louay
