    Original Thread See Link above for Updated PS3HEN ^

    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

      • 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 v3.0.1
    SEE: PS3HEN v3.0.1

    See the (Work In Progress) PS3 Starter Guide for PS3 HEN user's
    We will be adding alot of content to over the next days >>> LINK <<<

      I installed han and then hen and then i installed multiman on it, and i was wondering can i install mods or modloaders using multiman? Or do i have to download a sign rebug toolbox and convert to cex if that’s possible im on SuperSlim Hfw 4.84.2 i think
    3. KH4L33D

      HELP! How to completely remove HEN from system?
    5. Major_Pothead92
      Sorry if this has been answered already, too lazy to read through all posts. Anyhow, does this work on 4.82 HAN? Or do you have to be on the new HFW to use this.

      Another question. This means one could go ahead and install any game now right? Ones without updates like NFS Carbon, Elder Scrolls Oblivion etc. Not just ones that are compatible with CFW2OFW or digital?

      If the latter is true, I'll definitely upgrade to the new HFW and install this HEN thing.
    6. stranno
      1) HFW only.
      2) Yes, non-NPDRM games work fine through loaders.

      1) It is a mount point for games. Some loaders use it, so you can have a game mounted and disc inserted.
      2) You must have games in GAMES folder (hdd or usb).

      Awesome thanks for answering. This appears to be the work of gods. So that means I'd be able to launch games without updates in ManagunZ ? How would I get them on my system, FTP?
    8. stranno
      Yes. ManaGunZ is the most stable/compatible launcher yet, at least in my tests.

      You can transfer them by FTP using webMAN-MOD or Multiman. Or you can transfer them by USB using Multiman/other File Manager.

      Yes, and my advice is to disable auto power off both in ps3 settings and multiman settings if you're going to use it else you end up wasting 4 hours like me.

      Anyone know of a way to fix that?
      Yes, webman is on the latest version.

      Sólo es compatible con 4.84.2 HFW por lo que es necesario actualizar. Podés seguir los pasos que seguí yo (desde 4.82 OFW):
      1. Primero instalé OFW 4.84 vía USB.
      2. Luego HFW 4.84.2 vía USB
      3. Instalé HAN y HAN ToolBox 0.7.1
      4. Activé HAN Flash Mount e Instalé PS3HENTAI_signed.pkg
      5. Reinicié la consola
      6. Activé HAN Flash Mount e instalé HEN_Offline_Installer_HDD_signed.pkg
      7. Reinicié la consola y listo!

      English version:
      How to install from 4.82 OFW or lower. (HEN is not compatible with 4.81 o 4.82 OFW.):
      1. Install OFW 4.84 via USB external storage
      2. Install HFW 4.84.2
      3. Install HAN and HAN Toolbox 0.7.1
      4. Activate HAN Flash Mount and install PS3HENTAI_signed.pkg
      5. Reboot the console
      6. Activate HAN Flash Mount and then install HEN_Offline_Installer_HDD_signed.pkg
      7. Reboot the console
      8. Enjoy!
