PS3HEN V2.0.2 Released

We know that the PS3 and PSVITA scene are the most active with respect to the PS4 scene. These days giant leaps have been made on the new HEN. In order not to lose the “appetite” the developer Joonie86 has released PS3HEN 2.0.2.HEN acronym of Homebrew Enabler allows the installation of homebrew on SuperSlim consoles and consoles where it was not possible to install a CFW (like the PS3 3k etc.). It does not have the functionality of a real CFW but it is a big step of the scene.

Warning: I remind you that HEN is not CFW.multiMAN and other homebrews work but do not have the same functionality as a real CFW.
