One limitation of PS3HEN compared to CFW is the inability to directly launch PS2 games in ISO format. Due to this, many of the existing methods for CFW will not work on PS3HEN, as PS3HEN requires a PS2 ISO to be encrypted in order to play. The method shown here will demonstrate how to take a PS2 game, encrypt it, and then create an installable PKG file out of it all thanks to PS2 Classics GUI! This will require you to have PSN activated on your PS3HEN console, as well as the basic knowledge of transferring a PKG over to your console to install.

This video assumes you already own a console modified with PS3HEN. It is also assumed the viewer has a basic understanding of how to navigate their console.
