    UPDATE2 (April 27 2019) nonCFW PS3 MODELS There is now a PS3 HEN that enables HOMEBREW !!!!!!!! >> See Link

    The new HEN requires this 4.84 Hybrid Firmware (HFW).
    4.85 has been released here by @Joonie: link

    UPDATE1: PS3Xploit 4.84 HFW Flash Writer + IDPS/Flash Dumpers Updated v2.0.1 - (Now install CFW from 4.84) See HERE for details

    Huge News as the PS3 exploit ladder has taken a step up into 4.84 rung, with a new approach to bring back PS3Xploit functionality on 4.84. With a Hybrid Firmware (NOT A CFW) that can be installed on ANY MODEL PS3 over any Official Firmware (OFW) version. .The only thing this modified firmware essentially does is bring back the patched webkit from OFW 4.82 that was an entry point for PS3Xploit, if you recall when 4.84 was released developers @bguerville and @esc0rtd3w stated the exploit was not actually patched but rather only the webkit entry used was removed in 4.83+ which rendered the actual exploit unreachable (not patched and could be restored). Now the webkit is back for 4.84 OFW thanks to this new clever magic that has allowed OFW user's to use and install this slightly modified Firmware.

    So, what does all this mean? Now it will be just like it was back in 4.82 before PS3Xploit was "patched"(some ps3xploit tools need updated still) you will be able to install a CFW (on a CFW compatible model) and for those unfortunate user's that does not have a CFW Compatible model (i.e. SuperSlim/late slims) you have will have access to the HAN exploit . So for new user's or ones that updated, here is your second chances thanks to the efforts of the members of PS3Xploit Team and to @Joonie (waved magic wand on files) and prepared this magically release, @habib (for valuable input on this project) and @esc0rtd3w (work in porting ps3xploit tools to 4.84)

    It has been an exciting month here at psx-place with so much progress on all fronts of the PS3 . the fuel of this project actually comes from a user simply igniting a spark with an idea as @Doge_Rules did with this thread truly making it a community effort. Updated - to version 4.84.2 (see details below)


    (Note: NOT ALL PS3Xploit tools are updated currently, Ps3Xploit team is currently working on updating those tools. Stay tuned.)

    • 4.84.2 HFW (Hybrid Firmware)
      Restores PS3Xploit Flasher/Tools & PS3Xploit HAN for 4.84 OFW user's

      Today, we proudly present the very first modified OFW that can be installed on all PS3 models. (NOTE: THIS IS NOT A FULL BLOWN CFW, HOWEVER IT Allows you to run the patched webkit exploit that's ported to 4.84)

      Yes, you didn't hear wrong, it can be installed over

      • ALL OFW versions on ALL PS3 models
        • ex) OFW 4.83, 4.84 , CECH-3XXX, CECH-4XXX and etc..

      We wanted this to be called "HHHFW" since it was Hybrid, Hack-able, HAN ready also inspired by @habib but let's call it HFW since this is Hybrid FW (Well you can call this MFW).

      The idea was reminded by some guy who didn't want to be annoying but actually ended up being helpful: @

      Habib had this idea long time ago but the previous attempt was not successful due to lack of interest and preparation.

      As you all know, I recently started messing with my PS3 again and this idea was brought back.

      So then I went ahead and tried his magical idea.... after a few hours later... Boom!!, now we have HFW that works on all PS3 models (including 3K and 4K) that allows the previously patched exploit by using old webkit from 4.50 that's been used until 4.83. This method is rather hacky than technical, so I would like to leave this method under the radar for now until it gets patched out (this can easily be patched).

      What can you do with this HFW 4.84.1/2?
      1. You can use PSN since the FW is the latest.
      2. You can downgrade/Install CFW on your PS3 if your model is downgrade-able/hack-able (excluding CECH-3K and 4K)
      (The same capability as what you had for 4.82 OFW)
      3. You can use HAN and all the tools that worked up to 4.82 with this FW.
      4. You can always go back to the real OFW 4.84 if you wish.​

      To all scener's and developers
      • Please update the HAN toolbox or any xml that can support 4.84 if anyone's available.

      good day.

      i updated my ps3 ofw 4.82 to hfw 4.84.2 and jailbreak it with cfw 4.84. My question is, can i install han tools in my ps3 cfw 4.84?

    2. Kazama
      @Joonie and ps3xploit team , First of all thanks a lot.
      I'm having fun with HFW.
      I have a small doubt ! Can you please answer for my enthusiasm. My question is that "can we have future PS3 updates HAN ready with this magic ? I mean HFW. Can we expect future HFW ???

      Hello everyone, I'm new here and I'm not using my ps3 consoles since they died (2014 or 15), need some help. I have 2 ps3 (1ylod and 1rsod, both Fat Cexxx) the console with ylod is with rebug 4.46 Rex(e3 flashed to 3.55 once), the other one wasn't jailbreaked and I tried some updating via recory, I don't know the version for sure that it carries OFW 4.46, I think. Do I have any chance of put it on, the rsod at least? In case of Yes, could you get me a walk-through to solve the rsod? I don't have the flasher anymore. Thank you.

      Hi everyone. Would someone be kind enough to double check that mega link? I've downloaded three times just now and get the following MD5 checksum:
      D41D8CD98F00B204E9800998ECF8427E which obviously is a mismatch

      I've 4247362b54fadd2e4d7c09007f720803 for

      for "HFW_4.84.2_PS3UPDAT_03_22_2019.7z".

      Thank you for the HFW! when i installed it, it shows that you have latest version installed. But when i am trying to install HAN, it shows NaN, then the list of 5 files that are unable to copy, where as, i format usb to Fat32, and put it on the right port as well. I do anything, like Dump IDT etc, its shows NaN first, then other errors. HAN exploit and initialize successfully, but when try to install shows error. My PS3 is CECH-4XXX super slim.

      Thank you,

      Some one Help Me Please
    19. Scorpion355
      Could you give me more details?

      1- where is the 4.84 HFW update file located on your usb flashdrive? It must be located in the root of your flashdrive.

      2- did you put the PS3UPDAT.pup inside the Folder named PS3 and inside of it UPDATE named folder?

      Install in safe mode, worked for me, I’ve also read that even though it says no updates to install it still installed the 4.84.2 HFW and you are able to install HAN
