E3 Station and PS3 Glitcher Announced By E3DIY Team


Sponsored Links
98w ago - Today the E3DIY Team have officially announced the upcoming release of their E3 Station and PS3 Glitcher hardware products for PlayStation 3 console owners.

The E3 Station consists of several PC Boards for developers to experiment with their PS3 NOR or NAND Firmware and Blu-ray drives, while the PS3 Glitcher is an independent chip purportedly able to glitch the PS3 3K and 4K model consoles.

Below is the official Press Release, as follows: E3 Team, the world renowned PS3 team, the maker of E3 Flasher, E3 Card Reader and E3 CFW 4.30 etc, will release a Revolutionary new innovation product:

E3 Station

E3 Station is a multi-console supported platform, which we spent nearly a year developed by E3 Team. It has huge hardware scalability and various software applications. Its main features are:

1. A high-performance hardware architecture
2. Big HD touch screen allow players to use the software easily .
3. Support for an expansion hardware board. With the custom expansive board, the user can play backup game easily.
4. Multi-console compatable, such as PS3/XBOX360/WIIU, and also future PS4/XBOX720.
5. Built-in Bluetooth, WIFI and HDMI interface, support HD Internet TV and a variety of high-definition 1080P multimedia (include BD ISO).
6. Perfect quality and attractive price.

The E3 Station will be the best development tools for developers. E3 Team will open the application SDK, and provide free sample for those interested developers. The developer can release their work (software or hardware) which is based on the E3 Station for free or paid. E3 Team will also reward the good work, we will public later with the Awards Program.

We believe that with the support of many developers, E3 Station users will get the best experience. Addition, E3 Team will release over time various E3 expansion boards which run on the E3 Station. Users can choose which ones according to their own needs, so far the following boards are planned:

1: E3 NAND Board Kit

The NAND Board Kit includes the NAND board and the Nand CLIP. These boards work in conjunction with the E3 Station, the NAND-model PS3 Users can easily achieve one click downgrades without the need of any hassle or even a PC. Just touch E3 Station screen and downgrade is completed.

2: E3 NOR Board Kit

The NOR Board Kit includes the NOR board and the NOR Clip. These boards also work in conjunction with E3 Station, the NOR-model PS3 Users can easily achieve one click downgrades without the need of any hassle or even a PC. Just touch E3 Station screen and downgrade is completed.

About PS3 3K and 4K consoles, we will release 2 products for them:

1: E3 Drive EMU Board

The Drive EMU Board works with the E3 Station, users can run PS1/PS2/PS3 backup game from harddisk, this works on ALL PS3 models including 3K and 4K.

2: PS3 Glitcher

This is an independent small size chip with cheaper cost. It does not need additional hardware like the E3 Station. We have succeeded in glitching the PS3 3K and 4K a few months ago, all we need is some time to improve the boot rate. More special function expansion boards will be announced later (for XBox 360 and WII U etc), while welcoming the developers to obtain the SDK and E3 Station sample, to become the member of E3 developer team.

Here is our new email address for applying to become E3 developer: e3.develop@gmail.com. Attached below is some pictures for our products, we will release more details later on in February.

1: PS3 Glitcher test board from E3 Team
2: E3 NAND and Nor expasion board

4: E3 Drive EMU test board back

Some new info from the site:

News: 2011-10-18

We renew two file to fix game problem after downgrade to 3.55 .Please note don't install any other 3.55FW after downgrade to 3.55, otherwise will have brick risk ! Click here ([Register or Login to view links]) to download the E3_downgrade file copy to TF (for one key downgrade) V1.2 and Enter and exit factory service mode file V1.2 ([Register or Login to view links]).

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.

We are working hard to allow e3 flasher limited version works really dual boot, but we can't promise now because lots of changes.

New e3 flasher should come out in few month with more fantastic function !

According to above information,we will find that the E3Flasher has fixed some bugs, and please remenber this note : don't install any other 3.55FW after downgrade to 3.55, otherwise will have brick risk.

I'm not sure what this means. Do they talk about OFW and mean not to install a 3.55 CFW ?

All that sounds crazy also that Dual FW support is broken. I remember back to Wii times as the first clips came out. They would be soldered onto the pads of the chip and then easy clipped onto the chip with no diff in abilities. So why did they do a new Hardware only for the clip?

They just would have to do a clip that will be soldered onto the pads of E3 Flasher. On this way they would not have need to do a new version of the flasher and also they wouldn't have brake the Dual FW booting support.

They have also confirmed it works with 3.73:

E3 FLASHER LIMITED downgrade 3.73 to 3.55 successful , the way is same as before, no changes ! and also we upload a good working manager, you can check official web to download.

And also please note : after downgrade to 3.55, don’t install any other 3.55CFW or 3.55OFW, otherwise PS3 will get brick just install manager to play HDD game.

if you want play PSN, just upgrade to 3.73 with normal upgrade way (network or USB device).

Well it's much more easier to install than other downgrade devices, and if the downgrade method is simple and easy you can update to 3.56+ and then downgrade again. Which is still kind of "firmware dual booting".

In the end all that one will end up with is a high priced downgrade device. Just my two cents.

Unbelievable. All this time marketing a main feature, only to mess it up (if that's true) and release without it. Perhaps they promised too far ahead of themselves, which seems really sad in this scene.

Between this and DHJFW I'm about done with wishing for some decent hacking around in the guts of this thing.

I emailed them and they told me that there are going to release a new flasher for the e3. However I am wondering if you don't use to clip with it if you still can have he dual boot. I have emailed them the question and I am awaiting an answer. Thanks and I will keep you posted.

The update that I got was the same as ps3 news got. So I guess I will have to wait into I get mine to see if I can get to work. Thanks
