    4.85.1 HFW has also been released by @Joonie

    HEN now works on 4.85.1 HFW, but will receive an update soon!

    4.85 OFW Released on 20190828!

    UPDATE (6-27-2019): Version 2.3.1 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.

      v1.0.0 Release Notes
      - Managunz backup manager works best for jb rips(ISO not supported)!
      - MULTIMAN works too but compatibility is not the same.
      - PSXISO Support is there!!!!
      - BD/DVD Region patches
      - 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)
      - Whole kernel memory RWX(execute kernel payload like this at high locations or hook syscalls etc)
      - PS3MAPI support for modding
      - Debug PKG install
      - Homebrew resigned for 3.55 and less support!
      - Homebrew Root Flags enabled!
      - HAN PKG insall support
      - 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!


      thanks to everyone for reporting issues :)

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

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

    • 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









      You can also use the USB method by placing pkg under /dev_usb000/HEN_UPD.pkg

      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.

      please,use english on this forum.

      but,in my very very limited understanding of italian i think you're asking for PS2 iso's support in webman MOD on hen,currently it isn't supported,ps2 backups needs to pe properly packaged in pkg format and resigned,you have tutorials on this forum how to do it.

      Hi, I'm also looking for information regarding PSN, in this site there's a lot of information, but it requires to have some experience in the subject, but I'm new to all this.

      1- With HEN enabled I should disconnect my PS3 from the internet, sign out my acount and don't try to use my purchased games?

      2- Without HEN enabled I should be able to use my PSN acount, my purchased games? Even if I'm using the HFW?

      3- In the worst case that my console gets ban, could I be still able to use games with HEN? The ban only affects the internet connection?

      4- In the case that the answers for Q1 & Q2 are "yes", isn't this method safer than CFW?

      5- If I want to play FIFA 19 for example, and want the teams were updated, can I use the games servers to get that, without risk of ban? Or that uses the PSN network? In that game or in other any game? Fighting online in MK?

      Thanks in advanced.

      I've updated hen from 2.0.1 beta2 to 2.0.2 and i've noticed analyzing both pkg hdd installaller offline that in 2.0.1 there's some files or folder that doesn't exist in 2.0.2.
      After the update, there's some files or folder that need to be deleted ?
      sorry for my english

      [QUOTE = "umart666, post: 180339, membro: 32036"] per favore, usa l'inglese su questo forum.

      ma, nella mia comprensione molto limitata dell'italiano, penso che stai chiedendo il supporto di PS2 iso nel webman MOD su gallina, attualmente non è supportato, i backup di ps2 devono essere correttamente pacchettizzati in formato pkg e dimessi, hai tutorial su questo forum come farlo. [/ QUOTE]

      Uso il traduttore GOOGLE sfortunatamente fa fatica volevo dirti il supporto che c'è nella nuova versione 2.0.2 Ho già provato due giochi nel formato ISO.Bin.enc funzionano correttamente con i classici ps2 vorrei caricarli da la cartella mod di webman play station 2 non sono riuscito aggiornando la lista
    9. ChrisHighwind
      I'm confused as to how the PS2 Classics Launcher support works. Up until now, what I've had to do is turn PS2 ISOs into PS2 Classic PKGs, which has worked before, so I'm not sure why I would need a launcher to run them?
    10. Danxx444
      Where can I find this file with these themes? by chance are in the new version 2.0.2? ... because I am wanting to use the blue PSN theme but with the icon in the old version.
    11. miky
      [QUOTE = "ChrisHighwind, post: 180362, membro: 45807"] Sono confuso su come funziona il supporto per il launcher di Classics PS2. Fino ad ora, quello che ho dovuto fare è inserire gli ISO PS2 in PKG Classic PS2, che ha funzionato prima, quindi non sono sicuro del motivo per cui c'è bisogno di un programma di avvio per eseguirli? [/ CITAZIONE]

      È una seccatura per conversione i giochi ISO in ISO.BIN.ENC e poi in pkg poi ho provato con asterix e obelix xxl 2 non ho potuto convertirlo in pkg in alcun modo quindi ora i giochi sono apparsi su webman mod ho il problema della memoria scheda la memoria è lì ma il gioco non la vede

      1. Extract this pkg.
      2. Go in dev_hdd0/hen/themes
      3. Extract the theme pkg you want to use
      4. Remove the xml in dev_flash/blabla
      5. Repack the theme pkg
      6. Install and rco will be replaced
      7. Reboot - done

      To anyone that is asking for PS2 Classic Launcher support: Meanwhile, I don't really know what developers refers to this anotation, I managed it to work with webMAN and PS3HEN 2.0.2.

      If you try to use *.ISO files on PS2ISO it won't work, maybe only usefull for Old 20GB/60GB PS3 hardware/hybrid retrocompatible models. Your PS3 -mostly- does not support run PS2 ISO images.

      If you want to use PS2 Classic Images, you need to have:
      • PlayStation 2 Classic Placeholder PKG installed, you can find it in PKG folder of PS2Classics. This is a homebrew PKG, if PKG fails to install, you may need to sign it with rifgen. Remember you need to sign and install .RAP for PS2U10000 from ps2classics\exdata to execute.
      • A PS2 ISO and transform it to BIN.ENC. Output filename is *.enc. You can use PS2Classics GUI or Multiman (last multiman crashes on HEN couse conflicts, Habib suggest to user older Multiman 04.70.00 that does not crash with it) to encode PS2 ISO to BIN.ENC.
      • Put the *.ENC file into /dev_hdd0/PS2ISO/. Don't bother trying external, it will made a UNIX ln from PS2 Classic PlaceHolder to the *.ENC file and might totally not work couse kernel reboot.
      • Reboot the system, re-entrer HEN and use webMAN to load the .ENC file. Open the game with PlayStation 2 Classic Placeholder app.
      • If there's missing Memory Card in the game, this is really missing on PS2Classics Placeholder PKG. You need to copy both VME slots from ps2classics\PS2U10000\USRDIR\SAVEDATA to your /dev_hdd0/home/[ProfileID]/ps2emu2_data/PSU210000/
      Note: This is not the best way to use PS2 Classic Emulator. If a game needs a specific patch, external or harcoded, it will anyway to be installed as Standalone PKG game.

      Use older multiman like 04.70.00.
      It will not crash in multiman mode ;)

      I tried for hours to get PS2 games working on 2.0.0.

      Finally got them working with PS3 HEN 2.0.2, by using PS2Classics GUI to first encrypt my ISO files, then to convert them into a PKG (with the correct patches for the games that required them, which come built-in with the PS2Classics GUI).

      I can't quite get the ICON0.PNG and PIC0.PNG to look the way I want them to, but that's a minor issue. I've tried eight games so far, and all of them work pretty much flawlessly, except for Baldur's Gate - Dark Alliance 2.

      That one has severe slow-down on any map that has water or fire effects (which is most of them), unless you zoom the map in.

      Also, take a look at one of the features of managunz that allows you to create an ICON0.PNG by cropping a section of the game cover (for this to work you need to have the game cover image in the PS3 already, obviouslly)

      The baldur's gate games needs a CONFIG file, without it you will have the small (but annoying) graphical glitches you mentioned
      Use the search engine of the forum, there was several talks about this before where is better explained

      While I cannot help you out with your problem I would just like to point out that the OP warns that

      "CONNECTION TO PSN SHOULD BE DONE AT YOUR OWN RISK. DISABLING CFW SYSCALLS MAY NOT HIDE YOUR HEN WHILE ON PSN (a popular method used by CFW user's may not be suited for PS3HEN user's)"

      Well like I say, I have been kicked to recovery in these circumstances many hundreds of times.. and never had to format hdd or anything like that.. its not like other real hard crashes where you get a freeze and need to pull the power for example, this is the console still in control , doing exactly what it is meant to do under the circumstances..
