PS3HEN (HEN stands for Homebrew ENabler) is a recent exploit THAT WORKS ON ALL PS3 MODELS (YES! ALL models including Superslim, Slim and PHAT models). It adds new functions to 4.85 HFW (Hybrid Firmware), transforming it into *almost* a CFW (Custom Firmware) or very close to it.

Among the features you can run Homebrews, HAN, JB rips, burnt PS3 games discs, PSXISO, BDISO, Discless games, load VSH plugins, and do many things more!!!

More info @ PSX-PLACE

** Requires 4.85 HFW (Hybrid Firmware) installed twice ***

Use the Easy Auto Installer from or to install the exploit.
