    I'm trying to install ps3xploit v3.0 and I can't dump these files no matter what.
    It manages to initialize the dumper exploit just fine, but when it's time to dump it, it always gives me an error ( and froze my ps3 completely a few times )
    I was able to install and enable Han just fine, but this thing just refuses to cooperate, whether Han is enabled or not.

    Been trying for hours... Someone help me.

    The USB im using is 8gb, format is fat 32, I tried changing the files on it to see if it would help, and it didn't.
    Cleaned cookies/history/etc
    Set the home page to a blank page
    Tried for over 8 hours.
    Tried with the pen drive on both ports and changed the dev_usb accordingly.
    Best result I could get is the PS3 freezing with the "dumping files" message onscreen

    Here's what the error says:

    HAN ACT/IDPS Dumper

    File dumping failed!!
    Error dumping file(s):
    /Dev_usb001/act.dat
    /Dev_usb001/idps.hex

    did you make a disposable psn account and activated your ps3?, if you try to dump it without doing that it will fail cause the act.dat gets created at that moment.

    You would need to activate the device with your dummy account.

    Also, once the dumping process failed, do not exit the page. Rather, just refresh on it and repeat the process again. Mine failed the first time as well. In fact, every step about the process failed on me once before making them work after merely refreshing the page and starting the process again.

    Furthermore, many claim that inserting the pen drive to the right USB port has better chance of making the process work than when it's inserted in the left port.

    You're right I missed the system activation, before I tried hundreds of times and nothing worked

    If anyone else runs into the same issue, here's what you have to to activate it: https://www.playstation.com/en-nz/g...activation/activating-a-playstation-3-system/

    The dumper worked on the first try after activating! ✨

    I installed CFW Rebug 4.82 with multiman, I can not dump idps because I did not activate the console on PSN. can I activate my disposable account on my ps3 with CFW Rebug with multiman installed without running the risk of the console being banned with this operation?
    Can I use and should I use SEN Enabler to do the PS3 activation on the PS3?
    thank you
