Thanks to the concerted efforts of numerous PS3 developers, PS3HEN has been receiving numerous updates which are making noCFW PS3s (Late Slim/Super Slim) closer to CFW-compatible PS3s functionality-wise. This time, PS3HEN got another update bringing it up to version 2.2.1 which comes with PSP ISO Launcher support, improved compatibility with multiMAN and a lot of other things!

PS3HEN 2.2.1, which was released a few hours ago, is a pretty significant update and it brings about a lot of new features including:

  • PSP ISO Launcher support which means that you can play games by just copying them over rather than having to rely on PKGs (Remasters/Minis)
    Now, you can play PSP games like “Adventures Of Gurumin” on your PS3HEN-ed PS3 by simply copying over the ISO. Make sure to check the compatibility list first though!

  • Compatibility with programs such as multiMAN, and others which replace syscall 6-10, has been improved
  • The stackframe and PS3HEN bin files have been merged into one file named PS3HEN.BIN
  • The in-game screenshot feature has now been enabled
  • You now get a notification with the PS3HEN version currently installed when you boot up your PS3
  • On-the-fly PS2 Classics Launcher activation
  • Self Threading support which fixes issues with some games like Splinter Cell Trilogy
  • A HEN installer feature has been added and some appearance changes
  • Numerous fixes and improvements relating to memory management, kernel plugins larger than 64KB are now supported and some technical improvements like a fail-safe for stage0 if stage2 isn’t found among other things detailed in the link below

In order to install this updated version of PS3HEN and make use of the new features, you can update through the HEN Updater found in Network->Hybrid Firmware Tools->PS3HEN Updater->Update PS3HEN which takes care of the updating for you as long as you’re connected to the internet.
