    UPDATE (6-11-2019): Version 2.2.2 has been released.
    See below for additional Details!

    See also: The Great PS3 HEN All in One (AIO) Guide

    Here is v2 of the latest PS3 Hack to hit the PS3 Scene with the recent release of PS3HEN. This exploit for nonCFW console's provides homebrew support and a number of Custom Firmware intangibles for those console that can not install a traditional CFW, with those being lat production PS3 Slim models and all of the SuperSlim Consoles. While this is a tremendous release and breakthrough the information behind PS3HEN has been lacking and has served more questions then answers that could be provided. This is due in the way this was delivered and presented. We paused the reporting this on the frontpage until we were pleased with the documentation. So we took it upon ourselves to get the ball rolling on a new PS3HEN F.A.Q. detailing various aspects and info that will be useful for PS3HEN user's. Also we have started forming the PS3HEN Homebrew & Plugin Compatibility Chart


    Version 2.x.x has come with a number of new additions for a better experience. Some of the new changes provide full PS3ISO Support ,As well as full BDISO and DVDISO support has been added, plus new improvements to PS3HEN's stability, KW Stealth Extension Added, plus kernel plugin support (v2) to go along with bootplugin support (v1), see changelog below for a complete listing of changes in this new build.

      - BDISO support(stutter with xmb, use showtime)
      - BOOTPLUGINS WORK location "/dev_usb000/boot_plugins_nocobra.txt"(Use webman original one and not the mod one. also disable - content scan on boot in settings)
      - Discless games work with disc icon!
      - Syscall 6 added
      - Syscall 7 added(address>0x8000000000352230) and disabled overwriting syscall 0->15
      - Syscall 15 added
      - Syscall 8 opcodes added for detection HEN and for advanced lv2 poke(read DEVELOPER SECTION)

      - PSN Connectivity
      - All process executed after HEN have rwx permissions!
      - HAN Enabled by default!

      CFW settings
      Retail/DEBUG pkg installation
      Unlink to Delete
      Remote play with PC
      Download debug pkg on retail
      Remote play ignores SFO check
      Cinavia protection
      DVD region check (not cracking RCE)
      REBUG themed RCO & XML
      AIO copy

      if you get error 80010017 launching homebrew that simply means HEN failure, restart console and try again!(restart is important!)
      also try deleting cache, browsing data, cookies and the likes from browser, make the exploit page the home page

      #define SYSCALL8_OPCODE_IS_HEN 0x1337
      using this if return 0x1337 its hen

      ADVANCED POKE:syscall8(0x7003, addr, value);
      this allows poking any location in lv2 memory BUT you have to restore original value before exiting to another application or exiting to xmb.USE WISELY OTHERWISE PS3 SHUTS DOWN

      BDMIRROR:Managunz FTW!(please use Cobra payload because by default its MULTIMAN)
      NOTE:mounting dev_blind will actually mount dev_flash. change files directly from dev_flash instead or hdd0/plugins/CFW/

      Kernel Mode returns 0x53434500 on success to user webkit 0x8a000000. its good to measure HEN success. right now hen is already close to or is 100%

    • ** For All Other Options, please see Developer Tab **
      If you have to ask which one you need, you DO NOT need the developer one!

      Recommended HEN Setup Instructions
      Auto Installer (Run HEN From HDD)

      HEN Enable will be the default XMB landing icon after installation. To make it work properly, navigate to System Settings > Display [Whats New] > Off

      4.84 HFW
      4.82 OFW

      4.84 HFW
      4.82 OFW

    • Upgrading HEN From v1.x.x to v2.x.x

      - Users coming from v1 HEN, should remove the old /dev_hdd0/plugins/CFW/ folder, as it is no longer required for v2 HEN. This can be done by following Standard Online/Local Host Instructions below, then activating FTP with a homebrew like Irisman/Multiman, or using a file manager to delete that /dev_hdd0/plugins/CFW/ directory.



      Thats it, now reboot PS3
      Once HEN enabled from Standard Online/Local Host Method, launch Multiman/mmOS and navigate to the far left, select File Manager/mmOS.

      Now use the right thumb stick to navigate the mouse icon to PS3 Root icon in upper left corner. Double click with X to open. Navigate to dev_hdd0 and double click. Now go to plugins, and find CFW folder.

      Now move the mouse cursor to the CFW directory and press X button, then CIRCLE. Select Delete from the menu and press X again. Thats it, now reboot PS3

    • 2.0.2+ HEN can use online XMB update method.
      You must have HEN enabled already

      Update HEN
      Network Column -> Hybrid Firmware Tools -> PS3HEN Updater -> Update PS3HEN









      Show Current HEN Version
      Network Column -> Hybrid Firmware Tools -> PS3HEN Updater
      this will show version, and you can also click to see changelog info

      Additional Notes About PS3HEN

      • It is recommended to Disable Confirm Browser Close (TRIANGLE -> Tools -> Confirm Browser Close -> Off) for using any of the web exploits. It just saves the step of having to click the Yes confirmation on exit browser!
      • -Users experiencing 8001003A error, while installing custom packages (i.e. Offline PKG), this means dev_rewrite DID NOT mount and you need to reboot, run /html/han_flash_mount_rewrite.html again, then install package.

    2. Louay
      • Install HFW 4.84.2 (Found here) from Official firmware 4.84
      • Download Support files from ps3xploit website " http://ps3xploit.com/hfw/release/han_supportfiles-484.zip " Then use HAN Installer to get Package Manger in XMB Game colmun
      • Copy HEN_v2_Offline_Installer_HDD_signed.pkg from download file (of PS3HEN v2.0.0) to root of USB
      • Use Enable HAN PKG Blind ps3xploit website
      • Install HEN_v2_Offline_Installer_HDD_signed.pkg,then reboot
      • PS3 will boot normal and new tool will be add to Game Column in XMB called Enable HEN use that each time ps3 reboot to use homebrew,modified apps,resigned...etc

      Hello, I managed to edit the RCO and make custom psn logo and store logo and things. I have tried them by replacing them to the path dev_blind (dev_flash) and it worked but now I want to know how can I make a pkg theme like "stock/rebug" that u guys have on HEN v.2.01beta3. @aldostools , @esc0rtd3w, @ShaolinAssassin please tell, I might help with themes for HEN

      Check this out, you will probably figure it out from that. Just put files in the folders, and click make.bat.

      I guess I cant post a link, so search "Creating a PKG file that installs to any path (including flash)"
    6. Jonathan240196
      For install HEN with Offline dev_Blind icon in XMB, test this:
      1. Put all archive files in USB with your HEN Installer PKG.
      2. Install "HAN" with han_installer.html in ps3xploit site
      3. Select new icon in "Game" tab in XMB
      4. Install your "HEN Offline.pkg
      5. Reboot

      Is multiman + webman are working fine with hen 2.0.1?
    10. rodryguezzz
      How's the compatibility with c00 games? Do we still have to use the HAN method of going into the PS Store?
    11. Itroublve Hacker
      Itroublve Hacker
      I have added some more themes to the HEN installer 2.0.1beta3 check it: https://mega.nz/#!nkRS0YbD!RsarTYx6d7D9fgE30rz9vyW9QJA0IiN4vNridMPf0hc
      This has no virus: https://www.virustotal.com/#/url/71...2ba513e14cc585f8e8d0f6cf04bf112f755/detection, I hope the themes are good. THIS IS NOT OFFICIAL! I have only added themes to the real PKG (hen2.01beta3)

      EDIT: Please give me suggestions if you want to add more themes and what color? And also make sure to mount dev_flash as dev_blind before installing the PKG. I have also removed the thing that switches your theme to stock/rebug! It will stay on the theme you were on when you've installed this to switch theme simply use the Hybrid Firmware Tools/Theme selector and choose theme!

      EDIT2: I have added 3 more themes and PSN icon for all themes. I have also fixed a theme that was not installing properly on my super slim but somehow worked perfectly on my slim! I have renamed this to "HEN_v2.0.1beta3.1_Offline_Installer-HDD", so you will not get confused!

      Multiman works well with ps3 iso backups on HDD, but I got a shut down ps3 everytime I tried to run ps3 iso from my usb drive, had to press twice the power button to power back on my ps3.
      Webman mod works well with ps3 iso on HDD and USB drives.
    14. pinky
      I don't know about that method, but C00 games use a generic edat license, which only needs the content id. cobra can bypass it (maybe hen at some point), or you can create edat pkgs. there are a lot of apps that can do that, so if you're banned, you can just create an edat pkg. I did encounter a mistake in one of the game pkgs (space invaders?). the content id in the pkg and the one in the PARAM.SFO were different. I think I used the PARAM.SFO one, 'cause when I used the pkg one, the edat was undetected.
    15. ShaolinAssassin
      Nice work. Gonna try it tomorrow. :)


      @esc0rtd3w : here are the items icons for the theme downloader (5 ones) - I forgot to add them when I uploaded files last time.

    16. rodryguezzz
      I was refering to the method posted at "The Great PS3Xploit 3.0 HAN All In One Guide" thread. It says that we have to enter PS Store, download and install the demo for the game we want to play. I've never seen a different way to play c00 games in HAN and haven't seen anyone commenting about c00 games in HEN.
    17. pinky
      yes, C00 games are demos that have the full name included. the games contain a C00 folder (hence the name) with some files, such as a new ICON0.PNG, that will be replaced once the license is detected. I'm not sure, but you may have to enter the game first before it's unlocked. that's how it used to be at least.
    18. atreyu187

      I'm sure it could happen. They have managed to port just about every other feature of Cobra. There is something in the works now that should satisfy your cravings in the coming days. Just stick around and check this thread in the coming days/weeks.
      swat101 and Fin9ersMcGee like this.
    19. rodryguezzz
      Yeah just forget what i said. I wanted to know if there was a way to unlock c00 games without connecting to PSN and downloading the demo from PS Store. In fact, there's an easy and obvious way that i found in a random youtube video. HAN Toolbox allows to download demos without being connected to the PSN. That's it. No risk of being banned.

      I'm not sure if you need a psn account, but I don't believe C00 licenses require the act.dat nor the idps. you can actually create the licenses on the pc with the app in my tutorials or other apps like the one from Rudi Rastelli. C00 edats are generic, so you only need the content id, no personal information.
