Sponsored Links
95w 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

Today the E3DIY Team has made available a PSN online demo video of their PS3 E3 Flasher going on PlayStation Network and Sony's PlayStation Home with a modified PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Clear up doubt, E3 FLASHER dual boot, 3.7 play PSN and 3.55 play HD game

After we release dual boot video, most player love it and also with some doubt. We understand, so today release a new video, and do some clarification.

1: E3 FLASHER not only a flasher, but with perfectly extension because integrated lots of interface, we will release more useful function later, all will be free just like we release golden finger function on E3 card reader.

2: E3 FLASHER can be upgrade from PC USB or TF card, very simple.

3: E3 FLASHER dual boot need 2 harddisk, one for 3.7 , another for 3.55. if you use only one HD, it will be required format everytime.

We will release a kit include ESATA station for you switch harddisk. (support 2.5 and 3.5' DISK)

4: At present, on nand flash console, it need solder wire. And no dual boot function because no 256M NAND FLASH ON E3 FLASHER.

On nor flash fat console, it need solder wire , and include dual boot function. On slim console, it no need solder wire but need solder some point.it is easy can be done in 3min. (don't misunderstand no solder wire means no solder)

5: We will release 2 new version E3 FLASHER at the end of this month.

One is 256M nand flash on board and with CLIP, to get dual boot and no solder function. Another is same as present E3 FLASHER but with CLIP, so all nor flash console no need any solder at that time. (sure cost will higher)

6: If all go well, we will release official picture and retail price on this Wednesday !

Update: E3 Flasher is a special device to help you program NAND and NOR flash memory. It supports all electronic device like DVD/BD/PS3/WII/XBOX360/MP3/MP4/Table PC which has NAND or NOR flash memory. Below are the official specs and pricing details alongside some pictures HERE and the E3 Flasher Installation Manual, as follows:

E3 Flasher = The world's first Dual-Boot, with simple 1 key operation = Surprising Arrival!

Device features:

  • Dual Boot 3.7OFW and 3.55CFW on same PS3
  • Downgrade 3.7 to 3.55 in 5min
  • 16M NOR FLASH ON board
  • 3 save MODE, can save data in TF, NOR FLASH on board and PC HD
  • 1 KEY operation, simple is best
  • Upgradable from TF card or PC USB
  • Compatiable all device like PS3/WII/XBOX360/MP3/DVD/BD/MP4/Table PC which has NAND or NOR flash memory.
  • Integrated lots of interface, perfectly extension, will have more function with future new E3 accessory.
  • E3 flasher Limited version includes 8 accessory, suggested retail price $88 USD, total production run only 3000 units!








Q1: What's the E3 flasher Limited?

The E3 Flasher Limited is an universal programmer for all NAND/NOR flash device. It support PS3 slim console better because E3 flasher limited has 16M NOR flash memory, and with soft board to connect SLIM console easier, and also this limited version include 8 accessory like ESATA STATION. Sure it also support NAND flash console & device.

Q2: How about installation for fat and slim ps3 console?

The limited version need solder 34 wires on NAND FLASH FAT CONSOLE, it need use E3 LINKER.
The limited version need solder 50 wires on NOR FLASH FAT CONSOLE,it need use E3 LINKER.
The limited version need solder some points on NOR FLASH SLIM CONSOLE, no need any wire.

Q3: How many Harddisk we need? What function with E3 Esata Station?

As fact, you no need any extra HD because you can take out ps3 internal HD and put into E3 esata station. It will play like internal HD. Every time if you change FW, you will be required fomat and upgrade. So if you want get more function like dual boot and fast switch FW function, you need prepare another HD for another FW, just like you will get 3.7HD for 3.7FW, 3.55HD for 3.55FW, all will be regards as internet HD. With E3 esata station, the internal HD size can be MAX to 2.5T, compatiable 2.5&3.5' HD with MAX to 3G speed , and also works 4GB+ game well ,this means no need USB HD anymore.

Q4: If we will get problem with PSN if switch to 3.7?

Some guy say there has unique ID inside original PS3 NOR FLASH, so it will get problem if you choose another NOR FLASH memory. We don't think so because you can keep original PS3 NOR FLASH with 3.7OFW, so even you connect to PSN, it will find you are original, change nothing! Sure you can keep 3.55CFW on E3 NOR FLASH.

Q5: Do we need any software and PC?

No, you no need install any software, no need any PC to operation. You get all function on E3 FLASHER itsself. just press key on E3 FLASHER COVER BOARD and wait few min or few second..

Q6: If PS3 upgrade to new firmware, does E3 FLASHER works again?

We can't promise but will do best to work and provide to all free, you should trust E3DIY team.

Q7: Which version PS3 can downgrade and dual boot?

We find all FAT console works , most slim console works even include some new slim console which come with 3.56+ original FW. We find 3000X version console can program correctly but can't downgrade and dual boot, we will do best to work it out and provide to all free.

Can't wait, external device would be great, but internal would be fine too.
