    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.

      yes as @habib says, all of us on the team use the home page as exploit page method while testing, and always works perfect!
      TheHSN and habib like this.
    2. TheHSN
      so , about PS3 Backups .. we should use the converted games?
      or original files with original EBOOT.BIN will work too?

      and also do we still get same problems that we got on some converted games before?
      @esc0rtd3w @habib ?
    3. nCadeRegal
      Congratulations guys. The huge steps you guys have made together in moving the scene forward these last few months is incredible. I am truly in awe, and greatful that i can witness it. You guys rock!

      You can dump your psn packages
      You can convert bd disc with game updates to npdrm
      Essentially all official content(and unofficial psx/psp/ps2) will work as npdrm

      Can the devs upload the web files, needed for triggering the exploit(like the v1 & v2). I prefer to host the files locally. Thanks and great work!

      PP: Sorry, i saw them :)

      ok cool .. and about the game problems in some of them? like some doesn't having sound , some doesn't even launching
    7. habib
      Official content won’t have such problem, bdvd converts, SOME might.

      Act/rif copier 0% success. Is there a way around this injection?
    9. GirlyGamer
      I'm in version ofw 4.75, it works too?
    10. Bakugo
      Glad to see this is finally out.
      Really needs some better documentation, especially on preparing/installing games, but I've waited this far so I can wait a bit longer.

      I have a few questions I'm really curious about though:
      • Can you play ISO/PS3_GAME games or just .pkgs?
      • If the answer to above is "both", do both of them require updates or just ISOs?
      • Do I need to use the extra account to play the games or do I just need to use it to dump the act.dat and nothing else?
    11. Louay
      @habib i have legend of korra pkg psn can i resign it then install via install pkg ??
    12. habib
      Wait/retry, clean cache and browsing history, change homepage to exploit page

      great work for all the team involved. @habib @esc0rtd3w i need help i have a ps3 game on my pc with the folders ps3_game ps3_update and ps3_disc_sfb that i backed up from my own game can someone tell me how to make a pkg and make it work with this exploit thanks so much
    14. habib
      Iso/ps3_game can be converted to npdrm with updates with tools
      Otherwise official pkgs can be used without updates

      Guys read the previous pages, FAQ on website before asking repeat questions
      jacobsson and esc0rtd3w like this.
    15. esc0rtd3w
      @FmTGamer you have to use a known method of using the official update along with disc files to create new package
      habib likes this.
    16. GirlyGamer
      i have multiple ps plus games but the plus is over. with this method can I play them again without having psplus?
    17. DoucheCartouche
      First and foremost, thanks for all the hard work guys.

      Now, I have succesfully ran 'Install HAN'. Exploit initialised quick and installed in a second however, nothing else is working. After installing, I can't enable HAN or use the IPDS dumper. Exploit initialisation fails every time.

      EDIT: Must add, I cleared history and cache and set exploit page as homepage on ps3 too.
    18. FmTGamer
      @esc0rtd3w what you mean?known method? i have a jb ps3 i know everything about it. but that method youre talking about. im a little bit confused about the official update along with disc files to create new package sorry and thx again
    19. esc0rtd3w
      @FmTGamer you have to use Google. we can not offer support for this type of thing directly
      nCadeRegal and habib like this.
    20. Bakugo
      Hope I'm not being a burden but I have something else to ask that doesn't seem to be answered anywhere else:

      What's the deal with the extra account? I created a second user account and activated it with a fresh PSN account, and dumped act.dat. Do I need to use this account always when installing/playing games or can I go back to the main one (to keep all saves in one place)?
