    Folks I don't know if I've misunderstood the whole HEN concept but I sort regret going from HFW 4.84+HAN to HFW 4.85+HEN.

    I read about how in HEN you can transfer whole ISO games via FTP and no need to resign them and create license files which was a big time consumer for me. Nonetheless, I spent many hours/days converting Game ISO folders to packages and resigning and Package Linking to PS3, the good thing was that for non PKG+RAP files, there was no need to run HAN or anything, just launch the game from XMB.

    So upgraded to HFW 4.85 since I kept getting bugged about updating, the noticed now in HEN, you need to:

    • RUN HEN (fails 30% of time)
    • RUN Multiman
    • Launch the Game from Multiman and ensure Game Properties are set
    • Go back to the XMB and launch the game.
    To me that feels like I've gone backwards just to play the very same games except adding 4 extra steps each time???

    Hen shouldn't have that high fail rate, for me it less then 10%.
    About the other issues I must recommend using Webman mod, when you enable Hen it will show a folder on the xmb with your games inside, you can launch from there, and even configure it to auto launch the game for you.
    Also you'll have FTP capabilities even while gaming.
    Leave multiman there, if you need to rip a game.

    @ OP Sorry to hear that.
    From my experience I also share of the same opinion as Kennerc , Hen barely fails at all and I was seriously impressed by the amazing and full capabilities it has compared to a CFW console!
    If you have Webman you can still launch your games from there instead of going to multiman everytime to launch them .

    Make sure you have latest HEN 3.0.0 and latest webMAN MOD 1.47.25.10 (freshly downloaded as its been updated a few times). It should not be freezing much at all.

    Downloads:

    Latest wMM installer here: https://github.com/aldostools/webMA...d/1.47.25/webMAN_MOD_1.47.25.10_Installer.pkg
    Latest HEN pkg Here: http://ps3xploit.com/hen/release/485/cex/installer/Latest_HEN_Installer_signed.pkg

    Just in case: with HEN you can still keep playing games converted to PKG, and in that case you won't need to execute HEN, it's the same as before.

    For PSN games, homebrew or ISOs, you'll need to execute HEN before launch.

    I wouldn't worry too much about it failing. it'll probably become more reliable. the same thing happened with the wii u. now, it works almost every time. same with ps4 too. sometimes you would get a video memory error or something, but it's pretty reliable now. I think it has to do with what's going on in memory at the time, at least when it came to the wii u.
