    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.

      thank you sir but i don't mean cfw but an OFW with HAN within it :p
    2. bguerville
      Well, OFW with HAN patches is a patched firmware so by definition it's a CFW or MFW & it can only be installed on CFW compatible consoles.

      It would be funny to see a 4.82 HAN CFW PUP (obviously for CFW compatible consoles only).

      I mean an OFW 4.82 already patched with HAN files, HAN Toolbox in dev_flash (like rebug toolbox), etc. :)
    4. bguerville
      Speaking of which, a new task could easily be added to MFW builder as well, I suppose. and aldostools like this.

      Every time I have to enable han to play installed games on ofw , other wise the game will give error 80029517 when I try to play without han enable I have resign the game and rap file but still getting error what I'm doing wrong plz guide
    6. bguerville
      It's perfectly normal. You resigned your games for HAN & the HAN Enabler exploit is a memory patch, it does not survive a reboot & must be applied everytime you start your console.

      There is another option for compatible games, you could prepare the games with CFW2OFW, adding a LIC.DAT to the folder tree, enable debug pkg, then install your pkg without using HAN Enabler and resigning your pkg.
    7. Shibu_Ali
      Does this method works on ofw, I'm having cech4203c model
    8. Riixaz
      pretty sure it does.
    9. bguerville
      It works on all console models running ofw.
    10. bigdaddyjosh
      I have a quick question. So i have installed han on my ps3 and installed a ps1 game with no problem but when I do a ps3 game I'm getting a corrupted data message. What am I doing wrong? I have a riff and pkg both are signed but I'm not sure whats going wrong. Thanks for the help in advance.
    11. bigdaddyjosh
      I got it figured out, I had a file in the rap folder that shouldn't of been in there.
    12. Prince Kalu

      So will there ever be a software downgrader for 4.81 OFW ?
    13. bguerville
      For cfw compatible consoles there is the flash writer 2.0.
      For non cfw compatible consoles, for now it appears that the kernel needs exploited before we can consider downgrading & if the kernel is exploited there will be little use for downgrading anymore.
      In any case, you will never be able to downgrade a non cfw console down to 3.55 to get cfw if that is what you have in mind.

      Some games may not work, right?
      I'm having a problem with JoJo Bizarre Adventure All Star Battle (EU / US) ... is it one of the unsupported games?
    16. xXTakarashiXx
      can't recall where but, about JoJo games, All Star Battle only works if its the japanese region one if i'm not mistaken... Eyes of Heaven (only japanese) works without any issue (this last one, tested by me)
      Yuri Costs likes this.

      Yuri Costs

    18. Yuri Costs
      Yuri Costs
