    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

      • 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 <<<

      sorry bro, but I've seen you asked in another thread if it is possible on 4.84HFW but there was no answer from the experts if it is possible. If you can post a video proof. Then I'll believe you. Thanks for taking time answering my question anyway.

      Super noob here, but the directions above aren't very intuitive. I've hacked my switch, and my vita but for the life of me can't' figure out the install chain for my PS3 super slim for Hen 2.0.

      Does anyone have a link to a guide that actually gives steps other than these files on a usb and go?

      Thanks in advance for any replies.

      Proof that any ode game (including the ones without updates) work on 4.84.2 hfw without swap disks on superslim via ps3hen v1 or v2.

      Is a feature mssing in all PS3 backup managers, the same problem happens in CFW
      In other words, at this point is imposible to make a complete dump with a PS3 of that "multiboot" games

      Hello,i know not all games will work on Hen v2.0.2. I've noticed some problems like killzone 2 stuck on the black screen after loading it with multiman.
    7. hitomi101
      Webman mod ruin my hen v2. I can't run multiman anymore, always blackscreen. Please help
    8. Ahmed Hassan

      i think it's because the hen enables 3.55 signed eboots to run as is the case with homebrews and ode eboots have to be 3.55 signed. just don't forget to enable hen before mounting the first game after opening the ps3.

      What is this ?
      The game 4.82 firmware version.
      Do you want to change it your current 4.75 version?
      Note: The operation will fix 80010009 errors for 4.20-4.31 fw games/updates if files are encrypted with 4.20/0x1C or lower key revision

      This information appeared when firing from a usb drive through the fifa 2019 multiman, I chose not and what if someone approve with a cross, someone knows what will happen to the console. Super slim 42024A han / hen works

      Don’t do it!
      See if you can still mount by selecting no.
      If not, use irisman for hen or webman mod

    18. Louay
      no you miss understand that stackframe.bin and PS3HEN.bin are in HEN v2.1.1 Offline HDD Installer.PKG and it is itself in

      you can install webMan standlone no need for PS3HENTAI AIO.pkg just install PS3HEN v2.1.1 enable it then install webman 1.47.20 from this link and done

      Just select NO each time you mount the game, if you do select YES, Multiman will patch the Title PARAM.SFO, which contains the required firmware version to run the title, after you mount the game and try to run it, you will be greeted with a Black-Screen.

      Multiman displays the firmware that HEN is on 4.75,but in fact you are on 4.84,so don't bother about it.

      I learned about that while testing Persona 5,which its a Title that requires firmware 4.80 if i am not mistaken, and by letting Multiman apply the patch, it patched the PARAM.SFO,thus the title no longer booted, forcing me to make a backup from scratch, although i just could have got the Clean PARAM.SFO from the BD itself, but i didn't knew that at the time.
