Here are all of the major topics that I’ll be covering for today’s guide:

• How to successfully convert your OFW PS3 to HFW (Hybrid Firmware.) and how to update to 4.88 HFW if you’re on an older version of HFW such as 4.87 or lower.

• How to install the latest version of HEN onto your console. As of 6/9/2021 which is version 3.03.

• Covering general tips such as being online & general HEN usage protocols.

• How to install homebrew applications via Package Manager.


★ Additional Information:

• In today’s guide, I’ll be utilizing my CECHK01 (fat model) PS3 that is flashed to 4.86 HFW (Hybrid Firmware) note for this process you can use ANY model PS3. This means Fat, Slim, SuperSlim model PS3’s from any region can use this exploit!

• As of 6/9/2021 4.88 is the latest firmware for the PS3 & that if a new firmware is pushed by Sony make sure to stay on the lowest firmware as at any time Sony can patch any exploits for the PS3.

• Being on HEN/HFW is not comparable to CFW (Custom Firmware) such as Rebug, Ferrox, Habib, etc, as in some regards HEN is limited when running some apps.

• HEN allows most homebrew applications to run, however, things such as debug apps/games will not run with HEN.

• While being on HEN it is important to NOT ENABLE FSM (Factory Service Mode) or install CCAPI (Console Control API) as this will BRICK and or cause damage to your console. This warning has been issued by the PS3Xploit team.
