    The Great PS3HEN AIO Guide

    WORK IN PROGRESS. SOME PARTS NOT COMPLETED
    THIS GUIDE IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE

    THE HEN IS STILL BEING DEVELOPED FURTHER


    DISCLAIMER
    I am not responsible for your mistakes. This guide was put together through my own experiences and any problems that may arise with your experiences are not my problem. Anything is possible when making your console do things it wasn't made to do and if you brick your console because you missed a step, deviated from the instructions or just went gung-ho on your console then that's your fault. By following my guide you accept the risks involved with modifying system software.

    Credits: Huge thank you to the PS3Xploit team for their work:
    @W, @esc0rtd3w, @bguerville @habib and @Joonie


    A shout out to all the users on this forum for the little tidbits of information that helped me troubleshoot and fix gaps in my guide.

    And lastly, a big thank you to you, the reader.

    So here we are again!!

    A new exploit means a new guide. It took me alot longer this time round to whip up an AIO guide as last time I was unemployed and had a ton of time on my hands, so much appologies on that part.
    But here I am, with half a day to cram in as much as I can.

    So without further a due, here it is:

    FOLLOW EACH AND EVERY STEP IN THE ORDER THEY COME IN. DON'T MISS A STEP THERE MAYBE SOMETHING IMPORTANT MISSED.

    Contents:
    • Part One - Prerequisites for HEN
    • Part Two - HEN Installation, Enabling and Updating
    • Part Three - Homebrew
    • Part Four - Backups
    • Part Five - FTP
    • Part Six - PSN Content
    • Part Seven - Converting Backups to Packages

    Part One - HEN Prerequisites
    Here we will be prepping everything we need to exploit our Ps3


    • Before we can execute any HEN exploits on our non-CFW slims/super slims we must install Hybrid Firmware (HFW).
      Its not strictly necessary to reinstall OFW 4.84 before installing HFW for HEN exploits but its advised to do so.

      All you need for this is a USB flash drive.

      1. On your PC, open your favourite drive partitioning software (I use MiniTool Partition Wizard)
      2. Initialise your USB flash drive to MBR (Master Boot Record)
      3. Format your flash drive to FAT32
      4. Create a directory on the ROOT of your flash drive and name it 'PS3'
      5. Create a directory in the 'PS3' folder we just created and name it 'UPDATE'
      6. Download OFW 4.84 from HERE
      7. Copy the file 'PS3UPDAT.PUP' to the 'PS3/UPDATE' folder on your USB flash
      8. Insert the USB flash drive into your Ps3
      9. Navigate to 'Settings' in the XMB and select 'System Update'
      10. Select 'Update from USB Storage'
      11. Allow update to install

      Your Ps3 has been updated to OFW 4.84
      MOVE ONTO NEXT STEP

    • Now we move onto installing Hybrid Firmware (HFW).
      This will bring back the webkit exploits patched out in OFW 4.84.
      We will be using the Ps3's recovery menu to install HFW.

      1. Insert USB flash frive in your PC
      2. Download HFW from HERE
      3. Extract the PUP file and rename it to 'PS3UPDAT.PUP'
      4. Copy the PUP to 'PS3/UPDATE' folder on USB flash
      5. Insert USB into your Ps3
      6. From a powered off state, press and hold the power button on your Ps3.
      7. Keep held until the Ps3 has shut down again.
      8. Press and hold the power button again until you hear 2 beeps in quick succession.
      You are now in Recovery Mode.
      9. Connect your Ps3 controller via USB
      10. Select 'System Update'
      11. Follow onscreen instructions to install HFW.

      Your now have Hybrid Firmware installed on your Ps3.
      PLEASE MOVE ONTO NEXT STEP

    • If you plan to install content onto your Ps3 that requires activation (DLC, PSN etc) then you will need to activate your system beforehand.
      It is advised to do this before hacking/exploiting with HEN as you will be connecting to PSN servers to activate.

      1. Login to your PSN account on your PS3
      2. Scroll to the right of xmb and select 'Account Management' under PSN.
      3. Select 'Activate/Deactivate System'
      4. Select 'Games'
      5. Your Ps3 has now been activated.

      PLEASE MOVE ONTO THE NEXT STEP
    Part Two - HEN Installation, Enabling and Updating
    In this part we will be installing HAN support files and the HEN exploit


    • Now its time to summon the great HEN and install it onto our Ps3s.

      This method is the simplest.

      1. Navigate to 'Network/Internet Browser'
      2. Push Start and enter this web address - www.ps3xploit.com/hen/installer
      3. HEN will now install
      4. Reboot

      HEN installation is now complete!
      MOVE ONTO NEXT STEP.

    • This method is more of a manual install.
      You will need HAN Support files found HERE
      You will need the latest HEN pkg found HERE

      First we install the HAN Support files.

      1. Extract the contents of the HAN Support files zip to the ROOT of your USB flash drive.
      2. Insert USB flash drive into right most USB slot and Boot Ps3
      3. Navigate to and open to Ps3 Browser
      4. Press Start on controller and enter this web address: http://ps3xploit.com/hfw/han/han_installer.html
      5. Select 'Initialise HAN Installer'
      6. Wait for Green Success text.
      7. If failure to initialise, delete cookies, cache and web history. Set homepage to blank. Close browser and retry.
      8. Once successful, select 'Launch HAN Installation'
      9. Wait for console to reboot.
      10. Shutdown console.

      Then we will install HEN

      1. Create a directory on your USB flash drive and name it 'packages'
      2. Extract 'Latest_HEN_Installer_signed.pkg' from the HEN exploit zip to the 'packages' folder on your USB flash drive.
      3. Insert USB into right most USB port
      4. Boot Ps3
      5. Navigate to 'Network/Internet Browser'
      6. Push Start and enter this web address - http://ps3xploit.com/hen/rewrite/han_flash_mount_rewrite.html
      7. HAN is now enabled and dev_rewrite is mounted
      8. Navigate to 'Package Manager/Install Package Files/Package Directory/'
      9. Select the HEN installer
      10. HEN will now be installed.
      11. Reboot.

      HEN is now installed on your PS3.

    • Now that the HEN has been installed we will need to enable HEN every time we boot the console for any homebrew or backup you wish to use.
      Please note that this is also the case when exiting from a PS2 backup as the console kind of reboots when exiting a PS2 game.

      1. Boot Ps3
      2. Navigate the XMB to 'Game'
      3. Select 'Enable HEN'
      4. If you return to the XMB, congratulations, HEN is enabled
      5. If you receive and error, reboot and repeat from step 1

    • Since HEN version 2.0.2,you can now update the HEN directly on your Ps3 console.

      1. Boot Ps3
      2. Navigate the XMB to 'Network/Hybrid Firmware Tools/PS3HEN Updater/Update PS3HEN/'
      3. Select the update
      4. Wait for download and installation to complete
      5. Reboot Ps3
      6. Enable HEN

      Your HEN installation has been updated to the latest version
    Part Three - Homebrew
    Here i will be going over some homebrew applications and backup managers that have specific HEN related fixes


    • WebMAN MOD had some issues with HEN early on and continued to plague users with black screens.
      The latest version that fixes these HEN issues is 1.47.23


      1. Download the latest Webman MOD from HERE

      2. Copy 'webMAN_MOD_1.47.23_Installer.pkg' to the packages folder on your USB flash drive.
      3. Insert into right most USB port on Ps3
      4. Navigate to 'Game/Package Manager/Install Package Files/Package Directory'
      5. Select 'webMAN_MOD_1.47.23_Installer.pkg' and install
      6. Once complete you will have a new icon for webMAN MOD installer.
      7. Hold down 'L1' and select the installer.
      8. Keep 'L1' held until the console reboots.
      9. WebMAN Mod is now installed.
      10. Enabling HEN will now enable webMAN MOD as well.

    • As far as I know, multiMAN is working fine with the HEN exploit and no extra steps should be needed to play your backups. See Part. 4 for backup guide.

      Latest multiMAN can be found HERE

    • This backup manager has also had positive feedback playing backups.
      Set payload to Cobra in Settings.
      PLEASE NOTE: Trying to load a Ps2 ISO through ManaGunz will break Ps2 loading. This has been fixed recently.

      The latest ManaGunz (with Ps2 break fix) can be found HERE
      If you ever tried to load Ps2 ISO with old ManaGunz version and have broken Ps2EMU, then install THIS fix package to re-enable Ps2EMU. (USE ISO.ENC.BIN, NOT ISO)

    • IrisMAN has been reported to work loading backups. And has received a HEN fix update.

      The latest irisMAN (with HEN fix) can be found HERE
    Part Four - Backups
    Here I will be covering how to get your game content into the correct location to be able to load on your Ps3. PLEASE NOTE: Transfer of files on this part of the guide is via USB only. Please see Part 5 for LAN Transfers


    • Here I will cover ripping your legit Ps3 discs to ISO format.
      PLEASE NOTE: multiman uses 'genps3iso' to make ISOs. Please use Irisman as this uses 'makeps3iso'

      1. Boot console and Enable HEN
      2. Start Irisman
      3. Push Start to access Global Settings
      4. Select 'Tools'
      5. Change 'Cobra/Disc-less Payload' to 'With BDVD Controller'
      6. Press Circle to return and your console will reboot
      7. Enable HEN and start Irisman
      8. Insert your Ps3 disc
      9. Highlight your disc game and push triangle
      10. Select 'Build ISO'
      11. Select which drive to save your game ISO. HDD0 or NTFS
      12. Push Cross to split your ISO into 4gb parts or Triangle to not split
      13. WAIT Patiently for the process to complete

      Your game has now been ripped to ISO and ready to play from your favourite backup manager

    • For Ps3 titles there are 2 options for content. ISO or 'JB' folder format.
      It is advised to use ISO format as this has very close to 100% compatibility compared to 'JB' folder format.
      I will cover both formats.

      1. Acquire/RIP your Ps3 ISOs
      2. If your ISOs are larger than 4GB (extremely likely) then format your USB drive to NTFS (most homebrew file managers can read NTFS formated drives)
      3. Copy your ISOs to your NTFS drive.
      4. Insert NTFS USB drive into PS3, boot then enable HEN.
      5.Using any file manager on your Ps3 (Multiman, irisman, managunz etc) navigate to your NTFS drive and highlight all your ISOs you want to transfer
      6. Copy ISOs
      7. Navigate to this directory: '/dev_hdd0/PS3ISO/'
      8. Paste your ISOs
      9. WAIT patiently for the transfer to complete.

      Your games will now show up in your favourite backup manager.
      You may need to refresh games list and/or reboot for the games to show.

    • As previously mentioned, compatibility of 'JB' folder games is much less than ISO.
      PLEASE USE ISO FORMAT.

      1. Acquire/RIP your Ps3 'JB' Folder
      2. If your 'JB' folder contains files larger than 4GB, then format your USB drive to NTFS (most homebrew file managers can read NTFS formated drives)
      3. Copy your 'JB' folders to your NTFS drive.
      4. Insert NTFS USB drive into PS3, boot then enable HEN.
      5.Using any file manager on your Ps3 (Multiman, irisman, managunz etc) navigate to your NTFS drive and highlight all your 'JB' folders you want to transfer
      6. Copy 'JB' folders
      7. Navigate to this directory: '/dev_hdd0/GAMES/'
      8. Paste your 'JB' folders
      9. WAIT patiently for the transfer to complete.

      Your games will now show up in your favourite backup manager.
      You may need to refresh games list and/or reboot for the games to show.

    • As previously mentioned, compatibility of 'JB' folder games is much less than ISO.
      There are 2 ways you can create an ISO. On you PC and on your Ps3.
      I will cover both methods here.

      PLEASE NOTE: When creating an ISO, there are 2 processes that can achieve this, genps3iso and makeps3iso. It is strongly recommended that you use makeps3iso as this has better comparability.

      You will need PS3 ISO Tools. Found HERE

      1. Extract and open PS3 ISO Tools.
      2. Select 'Create ISO'
      3. Tick 'Exclude PS2_UPDATE folder from ISO'
      4. Tick 'Use makeps3iso'
      5.Click 'Continue'
      6. Locate and select your 'JB' folder and click 'OK'
      7. Choose a location to save your ISO and click 'OK'
      8. WAIT patiently for the ISO to be created.
      9. Follow early part of guide to transfer your ISO to Ps3

      Now I will run through how to convert 'JB' folder game to ISO directly on your Ps3.
      PLEASE NOTE: As far as I am aware, multiman uses genps3iso to make ISOs. So Irisman is the preferred manager.

      1. Follow 'JB' Folder part of the guide to get your 'JB' folder onto your Ps3
      2. Start Irisman
      3. Navigate to your 'JB' Folder game
      4. Push triangle
      5. Select 'Build ISO'
      6. Select which drive to save your game ISO. HDD0 or NTFS
      7. Push Cross to split your ISO into 4gb parts or Triangle to not split
      8. WAIT Patiently for the process to complete
      9. Your game has now been converted to ISO
      10. You may delete the 'JB' Folder game.

    • Ps2 backups can be played on the Ps3 but some extra steps and a different approach to loading are needed to achieve this.

      PLEASE CHECK THAT YOU GAME IS COMPATIBLE - https://www.psdevwiki.com/ps3/PS2_Classics_Emulator_Compatibility_List

      First you will need to have Ps2 Classics GUI installed on your PC. Found HERE
      Then you must install the Ps2 Classics Placeholder to your Ps3. Found HERE
      You must run the placeholder without a mounted ISO so that your Ps3 controllers can connect wirelessly<-IMPORTANT STEP

      First we will install and start Ps2 Classics Placeholder.

      1. Enable HEN, Install Ps2 Classics Placeholder.
      2. Start Ps2 CLassics Placeholder.
      3. Maintain controller wireless connectivity
      4. A Tetris clone should start
      5. Play a little to make sure your satisfied this step worked and your controller is working wirelessly.
      6. Close Ps2 Classics.

      Now we move onto converting and copying our Ps2 ISOs.

      1. Rip/Acquire your Ps2 ISO
      2. Open Ps2 Classics GUI
      3. Click the little black folder icon and select your Ps2 ISO.
      4. Select 'Encrypt'
      5. Save as an ISO.BIN.ENC
      6. Once encrypted, copy the ISO.BIN.ENC to your USB flash drive.
      7. Insert into Ps3, boot and enable HEN.
      8.Using any file manager on your Ps3 (Multiman, irisman, managunz etc) navigate to your NTFS drive and highlight your 'ISO.BIN.ENC'
      9. Copy 'ISO.BIN.ENC'
      10. Navigate to this directory: '/dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/'
      11. Create a new folder and name it whatever you wish (the games name is the norm)
      12. Paste your 'ISO.BIN.ENC' into your game folder
      13. WAIT patiently for the transfer to complete.
      14. Mount your Ps2 game with your favourite backup manager.
      15. Start 'PS2 CLassic Placeholder' to boot your game

    • Ps1 games don't need much messing with. But must be in .bin/.cue format.
      If you only ripped your game as an bin or just missing the cue sheet, you can generate a cue sheet on THIS website.

      1. Rip/Acquire your Ps1 BIN/CUE
      2. Copy your bin and cue files to your USB flash drive (FAT32 or NTFS as ps1 games are small enough)
      3. Insert flash drive into your Ps3
      4. Using your favourite file manager
      5. Copy your bin and cue
      6. Navigate to '/Dev_HDD0/PSXISO/
      7. Create a folder and name it whatever you wish (game name is the norm)
      9. Paste bin and cue into your game folder
      10. WAIT patiently for the transfer to complete

      Your games will now show up in your favourite backup manager.
      You may need to refresh games list and/or reboot for the games to show.

    • PSP backups are now support from HEN v2.2.1

      You will need a PSP Launcher installed on your ps3, you can find a collection of them HERE.

      Install your PSP launcher of choice and place your PSP ISOs in 'dev_hdd0/PSPISO/'

      Use your favourite loader to mount your PSP ISO.
      Launch ISO by starting PSP Launcher.
    Part Five - FTP
    Here I will go over setting up an FTP connection between your PC and Ps3


    • You can use any FPT client you prefer. But I use Filezilla.
      You can setup Filezilla using THIS guide for best results.

    • If your using webMAN MOD then you don't need to set anything up. Your FTP server is running.
      If you don't use webMAN MOD then you will need to start an FTP server.

      Most Backup Managers have one built in. Irisman and Multiman will start an FTP server when you boot them.

    • Once you have an FTP connection setup and started you can browse the internal HDD and any USB devices connected.

      Some notable directories:

      /dev_hdd0/PSXISO
      Copy your Ps1 ISOs into this folder

      /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO
      Copy your encrypted Ps2 ISOs here (ISO.BIN.ENC)

      /dev_hdd0/PS3ISO
      Copy your Ps3 ISOs into this folder

      /dev_hdd0/GAMES
      Copy your 'JB' Folder games into this folder

      /dev_hdd0/packages
      Copy any package files (.pkg) to this directory. Then you can install them by navigating the XMB to 'Game/Package Manager/Install Package Files/Ps3 System Storage' and selecting your PKGs
    Part Six - PSN Content
    Here I will cover PSN based content such as PSN, Ps1, Ps2, Ps3, PSP and PsP Minis


    • If you followed my guide from the beginning (which you should have) you will have your ACT.dat and IDPS.hex in the correct place when you activated your system.

      1. Acquire your PSN content RAP file
      2. Copy your RAP file into the 'exdata' folder on your USB root

      Your RAP file is now in the correct location.

    • Now the required license file is in the correct location we will transfer and install our game or DLC PKG.

      1. Insert USB into your PC
      2. Copy game/DLC PKG to the 'packages' folder on your USB root or:
      2.a Copy/transfer your game/DLC PKG to 'dev_hdd0/packages' folder
      3. Insert USB if using USB to install
      4. Navigate to Package Manager and select 'Package Directory' for USB or 'Ps3 System Storage' for HDD
      5. Install your game/DLC PKG
      6. Wait patiently for game/DLC to install

    • Once your game PKG is installed and your RAP is in the correct location start your game.
      Your game will automatically be activated on first boot.

      You can delete any RAPs once activation is complete
    Part Seven - Converting Backups to Packages
    Here I will show you how to convert your Ps1, Ps2 PSP and PSP Minis into packages that can be installed direct to the Ps3.
    Ps1 and Ps2 NOT strictly necessary, use Backups part for loading.


    • We are also going to need some tools:

      - PS3Tools by Aldotools - An AIO suit of tools. Download HERE
      - PSX Classics Tools - A few tools for converting PSX games. ALL DOWNLOAD LINKS DEAD
      - TrueAncestorRepacker - A repacker to pack your PSX content into PKGs. Download HERE
      - For Ps2 games, you will need '2P0001-PS2U10000_00-0000111122223333.rap' (If following guide from beginning, you should already have this installed) Download HERE

      Then we will install/extract them to the correct locations on our PC.
      I like to create a working folder on the root of one of my hard drives named "WORK" so it is easier to navigate the tools during the conversion process.
      Some tools will give errors if filenames contain spaces. So if you try to create a game from:
      "C:/WORK/Playstation 1/PSX Game 1.ISO"
      It will fail because A. There is a space in "Playstation 1" and B. There are a few spaces in "PSX Game 1.ISO"
      The correct file path would be:
      "C:/WORK/Playstation1/PSXGame1.ISO"

      1. Extract PSX Classics Tools to WORK folder.
      2. Create new folder "TrueAncestor" in WORK and unzip TrueAncestorRepacker into this folder
      3. PS3Tools.exe may trigger your antivirus. If this happens, make an exception in your antivirus software or disable your antivirus while using the tools.
      4. Install PS3Tools to your WORK folder.
      5. You may have some trouble opening "PS3Tools_Menu.exe". A message may appear saying "MSVBVM50.DLL" was not found. If you get this message, download and install THIS to fix this error.

    • For PSX conversion you will need a few images for the 'look and feel' of your game within the XMB menu. There are 3 images in total but i only use 2.
      ICON0.PNG - This is the icon of the game when highlighted in XMB
      PIC1.PNG - This is the background image when highlighted in XMB
      PIC0.PNG - This is the information box located in the bottom right of the screen when highlighted in XMB

      I will be using GTA 2 as an example to run you through the conversion process.

      1. Rip/acquire your PSX to ISO
      2. Open PSX2PS3 in 'Clasic mode'
      3. Click "Options" and move "Compression" Slider to 0
      4. Save and close.
      5. Reopen "Clasic Mode"
      6. Select your ISO file. For multi disk games, click the dropdown menu to add more disks.
      7. REMEMBER. Name your files and directory's so they contain NO spaces.
      8. Fill in the "Output PBP Folder" box
      9. Check "Game Title" is correct (Grand Theft Auto 2)
      10. Write down the games "GameID" (SLES01404)
      11. Click "Convert"
      12. Navigate to "\WORK\psx_classics" and find the newly created folder of your game (Grand Theft Auto 2)
      13. Copy/Move the "EBOOT.PBP" from this folder into "\WORK\psx_classics" folder.
      Drag "EBOOT.PBP" onto "make_psone_classic_metadata.exe" to make a ISO.BIN.DAT file.
      14. Copy this and past it into notepad:
      "make_npdata -e ISO.BIN.DAT ISO.BIN.EDAT 1 1 1 0 16 3 00 UP9000-TITLEID_00-0000000000000001 5"
      15. Edit this command so it contains your "GameID" where "TITLEID" is. So in my GTA 2 example:
      "make_npdata -e ISO.BIN.DAT ISO.BIN.EDAT 1 1 1 0 16 3 00 UP9000-SLES01404_00-0000000000000001 5"
      16. Hold shift and right click an empty part of the "psx_classics" folder and select "Open command window here"
      17. If you don't have "Open command window here", follow THIS guide to add it to windows.
      18. Copy and Paste your edited command into the command window and hit Enter. You will receive a new file named "ISO.BIN.EDAT"

    Just got back from a music festival, will update the guide as soon as I can... Need sleep lol.

    'Ps3 ISO Tools' Is what you need if converting on pc. Pretty self explanatory, select 'Build ISO', select jb folder to convert and let the app make an iso.

    Or, on Ps3, you can use nearly any backup manager to convert jb to iso

    Please, could you write in English please. Even if you can't speak English, copy and paste from Google translate underneath your original message.
    Psnpatch does work with HEN and I will cover this in a later edit to the guide.
    Stay tuned for more to come

    Por favor, podrías escribir en inglés por favor. Incluso si no puede hablar inglés, copie y pegue desde el traductor de Google debajo de su mensaje original.
    Psnpatch funciona con HEN y cubriré esto en una edición posterior de la guía.
    Estén atentos para más por venir

    I am having some trouble getting Multiman to recognize my NTFS 64G or 16G flash drive. If I can get it to work I would like to use my 4tb external HDD

    Somehow my ps3 couldn't read my NTFS external harddisk but has no problem reading a pendrive. Is this a power issue?

    the ps3 can't natively read ntfs, so only fat32 drives will show up in the photo, etc. tiers. if it were a power issue, the system would tell you.

    Inside file managers I can read NTFS pen drives but the external hard drives don't show up even the fat32 ones. I think my ps3 is not able to drive the disks without external power.

    This one confused me a bit.
    I upgraded my internal hdd and had a spare USB hdd enclosure so I put the old drive in that and used it with just a single USB cable and it works great....

    In the past I've always had to use Y cables to provide enough power to the usb enclosure. But for some reason this hdd doesn't...
    I'm assuming it's a low power hdd as it was really thin compared to other hdds I have.

    Y cables are usually needed for the extra power though. So agree with you there.

    This sound like you haven't initialised your hdd to MBR.

    Use Minitool Partition Wizard, found HERE, and install the application on your PC.
    Attach you hdd and start the program.
    Right click your hdd (check hdd capacity, don't accidently wipe you PCs hdd)
    Select 'initialize to MBR' or 'convert GPT to MBR'.
    Then, there is a button, top left of application. Can't remember what is says (not at PC) but it'll execute the commands you have set.
    You must execute the commands for the changes to take effect to your HDD.
    This should be enough to make the Ps3 recognise your hdd.
    You may need to reformat the drive to NTFS after MBR initialisation. But this shouldn't be needed
