Here is an update from the E3 Team for those following along with a Slim manual in PDF format below, to quote:
E3 flasher LIMITED version start to ship on 13th. We are sorry for the delay because CLIP component is very low rate. We had to ship small quantity like 100-200pcs every day recently, we are working hard to improve those problem.
Now you can get new slim installation manual with clip from official web.
E3 flasher limited version fixed on NOR FLASH FAT console not so good, you can know some from official web, sure all NOR FLASH console is NO SOLDER include SLIM AND NOR FLASH FAT.
We are regret that we had to cancel some function like dual boot from E3 FLASHER LIMITED version because NO solder function added(CLIP). We will develop a new flasher to add those function with few wire solder.
We take some picture for E3 FLASHER LIMITED production, you can know production status official web. Not sure from their rough english above on how they will add 'dual-boot', but from my understanding with their tech's, it will need a few wires added that you solder, with manual and upgrade coming regarding this matter, but were as the above says 'develop a new flasher'.
In the meantime since their official site is slow as always during periods of new E3 news, attached below is all the pictures and the new Slim manual!
Another update via e-mail is below:
We think lots of user mis-understand us, here is some clarification.
1: E3 FLASHER LIMITED still provide 11 accessory, include esata station.
2: we design e3 flasher on solder way at first, this way can get dual boot well. But later we change hardware and software design because of adding clip. so finally it’s difficult to get dual boot function on e3 flasher clip version.
3: You still can get 3.72 and 3.55 switch with 2 HDD, it need more steps than dual boot, maybe we can call it half dual boot. This way no need any solder. We will release this half dual boot way in few days, you just upgrade e3 flasher limited and get it work.
4: We are working hard to allow e3 flasher limited vesion works really dual boot, but we can’t promise now because lots of changes.
5: We upload all neccessory software and manual, you can go here to download and enjoy one key downgrade.
6: New e3 flasher should come out in few month with more fantastic function !
