PS3 System Update 4.88 has just been released (1st June 2021). Keep in mind PS3HEN v3.0.3 Compatible only with 4.88 Hybrid Firmware (HFW). PS3 Jailbreak 4.88 process is quite simple. We need to follow the same steps as we did for PS3 Jailbreak 4.87. This process is only for nonCFW console users. CFW users have a choice to install Custome Firmware on their console. Please make sure you follow all the steps or you’ll face an 80010017 error on your PS3 system.

Live Update 4.88 Changelog:

  • This system software update improves system performance.

Live Update 4.88 Changelog (Unofficial):

  • Updated Blu-Ray keys for new movie releases
  • System fixes (possible security fixes?)

As developers always recommend do not update your PlayStation 3 system in order to make use of such things as PS3 CFW, Downgrading, Homebrew, Webkit Exploits and much more.

PS3 Jailbreak 4.88


What is HEN?

HEN stands for Homebrew Enabler. it also consists of much more new functions relatively close to a CFW.

How to fix 80010017 error?

if you get error 80010017 launching homebrew that simply means HEN failure, restart the console and try again! (restart is important!) also, try deleting cache, browsing data, cookies and the likes from the browser, make the exploit page the home page.

Can I install CFW on my PS3 system?

CFW does not confirm yet for 4.88. Also, CFW can be installed only supported models (Below CECH-2508B). You can wait for 250B or your fat model.

Should I update my PS3?

As I have mentioned above developers recommendations stay on the lower version and wait for some big update or you can update your HEN.

PS3HEN v3.0.3 Changelog:

HEN Plugin Changes

  • Updated To Support 4.88 HFW

Payload Changes

  • Updated To Support 4.88 HFW
  • COBRA PS3MAPI Changes
  • Updated To Identify 4.88 Firmware

You’ll need these

Conclusion: PS3HEN v3.0.3 support up to 4.88 which mean you are ready to jailbreak your console if you already have updated. Like our Facebook page and subscribe to us on YouTube and stay connected with me.
