    UPDATE 1 (OCT. 11 2018) - With the release of OFW 4.83 portions of PS3Xploit have been patched, The team is looking at workarounds, STAY ON 4.82, DO NOT UPDATE TO 4.83 AT THIS TIME:

    UPDATE 2 (MARCH -2019) HFW (Hybrid Firmware) Released - Allows for PS3Xploit Tools / Hacks (including HAN) to work for 4.84 (OFW) OFFICIAL FIRMWARE (See Here) Also the HAN Exploit was updated to v3.01 for 4.84 HFW support

    The PS3Xploit Team has done it yet once again with an incredible breakthrough that has now just gone LIVE for everyone and as the recent teaser recently suggested it's for those later Slim & SuperSlim models who are not capable of using CFW (aka NoN CFW Compatible Models). While not a HEN (Homebrew Enabler) it's a volatile dose of "HAN" (short for etHANol). This version of the hack has evolved to offer something to every PS3 model now. All existing models will now have the ability to get PS3 games backup pkg installation and PS1/PS2/PSP emulators support among other features as outlined by developer bguerville who is going to take from here with this introduction of PS3Xploit v3.0 -- Codenamed: "HAN"


    • PS3Xploit Team is pleased to announce the official release of the PS3Xploit Tools v3.0 project nicknamed 'HAN'.

      PS3Xploit Tools v3.0 is a suite of 6 tools supporting both official firmware versions 4.81 & 4.82. The only pre-requirement to use HAN is to have an activated PSN user account.
      It's recommend not to use your main PSN account but rather a spare one.
      Users should create a new secondary user account on the PS3 then activate a new PSN account in it.
      This secondary ps3 account should be used to perform all the pkg installations. Then for regular gaming, use the primary user account.

      The principle behind HAN is quite simple, due to a vulnerability in the way npdrm content is managed, it is possible to resign game related files with custom keys, patch vsh & install resigned pkg from XMB.

      The first tool, on the PC side, ps3xploit_rifgen_edatresign.exe should be used to generate rif files and create new signed_act.dat. You should place the act.dat/idps.hex, previously dumped with HAN ACT/IDPS Dumper, in the resigner directory and drag matching rap file for your game onto the executable file. Then rename the new "signed_act.dat" to "act.dat" and place it on USB drive along with the new rif file. The files are now ready to be pushed to the PS3 using the HAN ACT/RIF Copier.

      ** It is recommended to resign all the pkgs that require Han enabler with this tool**
      ** Packages which are converts and packages which needs rif activation **
      keep original act.dat in a safe place **

      On the PS3 side, the other 5 ps3xploit tools are:
      1. HAN Installer - Copies necessary system files to PS3 to run HAN.
      2. HAN Enabler - Enables the HAN patches
      3. HAN ACT/IDPS Dumper - Dumps current user profile user act.dat & PS3 IDPS to USB.
      HAN ACT/RIF Copier - Copies the resigned act.dat & generated rif file from USB to the current user profile.
      5. HAN Debug PKG Enabler - Provided optionally for users wishing to install debug pkg. Note that if you run this patch you will not be able to install any pkg resigned with the ps3xploit resigner for HAN anymore until you reboot!

      The 'HAN' project is solely relying on userland exploitation to provide digital backups support for the majority of PS3 Games as well as PS1/PS2/PSP Emulators (within the ps3 firmware) and the ability to install PKG files from USB. PS3 PKG Game backups need to be prepared using TABR like technique and only ps3 games having an available "game update" are supported.
      PKG files are installed from the Games XMB column, using a version of the Rebug Package Manager tweaked for this project. On USB of course, the FAT32 limitation of 4Gb is still in effect, it's a partition type limitation, nothing we can do about that. However workarounds using a local server can be used to remedy the situation if required.
      To get best results initializing the exploit, remember to load the pages directly from a clean browser session. Never browse to an exploit page from other pages & never use a homepage other than blank or the exploit page you wish to use.
      We recommend to:
      1. Go to the ps3 browser homepage option & choose blank homepage.
      2. Create favourites to HAN Enabler & the other HAN pages you wish to use.
      3. Restart the browser.
      4. Use the favourites to access any page from complete scratch.
      5. Reload the browser between exploits.

      please help me , I'm totally lame for this, I read the instructions, and I could install the HAN enabler but I am stuck :(

      • I cannot understand most of the terms like what is what, becuse I never had a chance to install cfw.

        So few questions, please be patient
        1, can I copy my game from an original disc? How?
        2, Can I play with an original disc of ps2 game?
        3, I have a copy of a game, it has a folder and all files : it looks like this
        how can I make it work?
        So if anybody have patience and time for me, please help me. Or maybe somebody experienced, not the devs (of course they don't have time for that) could make a guide for the beginners. Beacuse I'm sure more and more ppl will ask the same things.
        many many thanks, sorry for make it long!
    4. esc0rtd3w
      stay on 4.81 if you can activate your PSN. no point in updating unless you want to.

      this is for when bubble packages are present

      and you still do not....yet :-p

      How I can activate my IGC Games

      1. Dumping Disc version of PS3 game is really hard... you need a bd drive that can dump your disc as in iso and inject the rest of encrypted PIC zone data and such then the dump can be decrypted with 3K3Y's IRD file. if you had a CFW PS3 then you can dump your own game with homebrews like multiMAN and IRISMAN. and that's not over, you will still need to pack this data with game update that's install-able as in PKG format.

      The easiest method I can think of is dumping your PSN contents that you purchased on PSN Store, which is quite pointless when you can just run it without any modification.

      2. you need to rip your own PS2 Disc to ISO, then convert that to PS2Classics format, I recommend @aldostools 's PS2Classic GUI tool , then you need to convert this again with @habib 's resigner tool to fake PKG

      3. it's already explained in answer 1, but if you were asking how to make this work without dumping your own, then the question can not be answered here since this is against our site rule.

    16. esc0rtd3w
      the videos will start showing up...the guide on website and on this thread, as well as all the comments so far have more than clearly explained the process i would think.
    17. mohammedkhaled

      only have to install files once as explained here on main site

      after reboot each time the enabler needs ran is all, and if the VSH is exited

      For a guaranteed success Replace the homepage directly to the exploit page, that would do it
      And also delete cache, browser history.
