    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
      1.0.1

      • Renamed stackframe_v11.bin to stackframe.bin

      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 psx-place.com 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

      • Install the HENTAI PKG via Package Manager on the XMB
      • Use HEN Enabler @ ps3xploit.com 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 PATCHES RUNNING ON PS3HEN:
      • CFW settings
      • Retail/DEBUG pkg installation
      • Unlink to Delete
      • Remote play with PC
      • 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

      NOTES:
      • 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)

      DEVELOPERS:
      • #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%


      WARNINGS

      • DO NOT UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES ENABLE FSM (Factory Service Mode) ON A PS3 WITH PS3HEN! - Source
      • 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 psx-place.com

      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
    We will be adding alot of content to over the next days >>> LINK <<<

      fan starts to speed up at crazy speeds when enabling hen. what am i doing wrong??

      last hen has worked for lots of users, but not for you.
      You are asking to find a file that is given in the instructions...
      Noob Friendly Instructions (Added by psx-place.com 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

      • 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

      This leads people to believe the issue isn't HEN but rather a user error.

      Open WMM and put the fan settings on "syscon" or what you prefer!

      I know that, i need it to install the last version

      to add to this... the dynamic fan control is BETTER than the stock, as it keeps the system UNDER temps that can damage your console. Sony default, puts your system literally at the razor edge of damaging temps, in an effort to decrease noise. If you like your console to last longer than it would have on official firmware, the dynamic fan control needs to be adjusted and saved, and you will experience louder, but cooler system that will have a longer lifespan due to less heat buildup on the components.

      The WMM settings could be saved. So try reinstalling WMM and setting it on a syscon and delete it!

      Reinstalling the firmware is like updating. You don't lose your games and apps when you update.

      That option is meant to disappear if HEN is not enabled.

      Hello, I just installed HEN, multiMAN and webMan onto my super slim and everything is working except PS2 games. I've played PS1 games with no errors.

      I can boot the Katamari Damacy iso.bin.enc with webMan and Ps2 Placeholder, but after playing for about 10 minutes, the entire PS3 shuts off. No lights, nothing. Just complete power off. If I unplug the console from the wall and plug it back in, everything boots back up, without even a system check. I haven't tried any other PS2 games.

      Any help?

      Katamari Damacy needs a Config file, without the config file, the PS3 enters into panic mode,perhaps due to memory leak, thus the shutdown, the PSN version has that Config file, thus you need it on your converted version, perhaps Zar has the Config for Katamari Damacy in his repository.
