    [Okay this is a work in progress, so lets all work together verteran scene user's and details some useful apps and functions to get everyone started on PS3 homebrew the right ways..Keep this link bookmarked and check back as we will be building and adding lots of resources to this thread over the next few days.

    A bit of a mess currently Noobs but keep a watch on it and follow along to learn some things and please ask questions if you are not sure of something :)


    Where to find PS3 Homebrew
    • Brewology PS3 Homebrew Collection: Link
    • PSX-Place PS3 Homebrew Collection: Link
    • Cybermodding PS3 Homebrew Collection: Link
    • Am i missing a collection or source?


    The Essentials Apps
    • Backup Manager's (one is all you need, but you can also have all installed. all 3 are excellent choices and all are very unique.)
    • ManaGunZ (Is performing well with HEN in Cobra mode, however some games need BDMIRROR )
    • IRISMAN (Now Updated to Support PS3HEN)
    • multiMAN (some games reported giving issues, that do not on CFW)
      • Useful Features (manager's in general):
        - File Manager
        - FTP Support (PC to PS3 Transfers)
        - Personal Backup Support
    • Media Center (plays many formats of media)
      • Movian (formerly known as Showtime)
    • Emulators
    Essential Plugins
    or
    • webMAN MOD - A forked version by Aldostools, that provide support for many additional features while containing the great foundation and core functionality of webMAN.
    Fun PS3 Homebrew
    Recommenced Tools
    • PS3 Tools Collection (for PC) - Built for CFW user's in mind but will have many great tools useful now for HEN user's
    Recommenced Guide
    Tips & Tricks
    • FTP Transfer's (files from PC to PS3 directly via local network)
      • via apps like: ManaGunZ, multiMAN, IrisMAN (okay every backup manager :) ) has this ability built in.
      • via plugins like: webMAN, webMAN MOD has this ability while on XMB , in game or in other apps as plugins are always running in the background.
      • Guide - How to successfully FTP huge amount of files
    • NoPSN Apps - These are the service apps (like netflix and others) that remove the PSN requirement so you can enjoy your subscriptions without a PSN connection.
      >>> SEE LINK <<<
    • File Manager's -All backup manager's will have their own unique file manager with all the functions needed for moving copying, deleting and transferring files.

    Yup so ftp will be easy without using PKG Linker and gain the double space needed to download and install
    But why multiMan isn't give same compatiblity as on CFW Console ?

    What are you favorite homebrew games on the PS3.. ThatOtherDev had alot of fun addicting mini games..
    Wish more did what he did but he gave alot of gems that go over looked that many PS3 owners will enjoy.

    Can be good " Root beer" drinking games :) You might need the extra caffeine for a hi-score in some of these intense mini games.

    I see that IrisMAN is mentioned, just tried the 4.84.3 version but it wont start. Gives the syscall old or not found error and gives me the option to return to xmb.

    Thank you Aldo, i've only tested the ftp (initializing/transfer work like charm, disabling doesn't work). It's late here now, i'll try some more tomorrow.

    Can you explain to me what I should do with managunz, multiman and irisman? What differences do they have? Do I have to install all 3 of them?

    you only need one, does not hurt to have all.

    Try them all see what you like best.

    multiMAN may need an update by @deank to fully support game backups. As some games are reported tohave issues.
    Also the HEN may just need to evolve as well So we will have to stay tuned on that front, but the MANY other features multiMAN has should work fine on the HEN..

    By the way, the main news quoted as features the possibility to use some CFW patches, but how does it work ? (remote play, cfw settings, etc). Is it included when we install HEN ?

    The blinking led (orange) means that the games content are being scanned.
    Go to http://127.0.0.1/setup.ps3, put a check mark on the option "Disable the content scanning at startup", then save the settings.

    I installed a game. When I try to launch it via webman, the system just turns off. I mean there is no even red light. What's the problem?

    Webman 1.47.18 uses advanced poke badly. Use webman mod 1.47.17 it works fine for idps, games and stuff
