44w 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 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: firstname.lastname@example.org. 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
3: E3 Drive EMU test board front
4: E3 Drive EMU test board back

changed the foam with new one nothing worked i have new e3 flasher package used the clip got nothing used the 3rd clip and nothing used the new one nothing at all it keeps bricking no leds i cant get connection from NOR clip to the flasher using the clip any one faced this problem before
Hello not new just in the back ground a lot. I dont like to ask a lot of questions in fact i don't think i have ever asked one. But I need help. So i was one of the impatient ones that downloaded rogero cfw 4.21 many moons ago. and my CECH-2501A Bricked, So i waited, well today i got my e3 flasher and card reader. I thought i had everything nice and ready.
I got a samsung multi consul update.bin. put it on my micro sd card, and bam! all 8 lights turned on. Well i found out others were having this problem and fixed it with another update.bin...WELL! i have been threw like 12 of the update.bins and still the same results.
All 8 lights turn on at once, and then the update.bin is gone from the sd card so i try and do a nor back up. Well lights 1, 5and 6 blink and the note file on the sd card says (start logging... backup PS3 BIOS.fail to initialize E3 Nor.) Im sure this is because of the update.bin not installing. I assume I installed the e3 flasher well, i have done it like 6 times before doing it on my own. What am i missing someone please help?
Today E3 released a statement about changed parts on the E3 ODE Pro below, as follows:
How to tell if you have a new PCBoard, and What models you need to make the change for!
There was a lot of confusion after the E3 Team said you needed to change some small SMD parts on the PCBoard to allow v1.2 and higher to work, now the team has issued a statement to clear up that confusion.
The russian version E3 ODE PRO installation manual and operation manual added in the download page (attached below).
The E3 ODE ISO TOOL v2.0 updated in the download page (attached below).
E3 ODE PRO Update

E3 ODE PRO Installation Manual
E3 ODE PRO User Manual v1.1 (English)
E3 ODE PRO User Manual v1.1 (中文
E3 ODE PRO Installation Manual and operation manual (Russian)
E3 ODE PRO ISO TOOL V2.0
Some user want to know how to indentify the E3 ODE PRO mainboard is new batch or old 1.0 version. If there has red color on the pcb as picture showes, it means new batch 1.2 version from factory.
As fact, it is necessary for only 4K 12G console user to exchange that four components. We are sorry take problem for those users even the affected user rarely. Any 1.0 mainboard user can exchange the new 1.2 mainboard free from his reseller.
E3TEAM won't do irresponsible things like JB2 give up his user and change to another pious face. From E3 CARD READER to E3 FLASHER, and then E3 ODE PRO, we always do best to help user and provide positive solution.
The PS2 ISO, BD MOVIE ISO, DVD ISO and PS1 ISO have run successfully on E3 ODE PRO, we will release the new update soon to allow all E3 ODE PRO user enjoy those amusing function.
I find the e3 file in sd card ode, perhaps there is a need.. here is the link: http://www.4shared.com/archive/FPWEM-_T/e3_ode_filetar.html
From Abkarino: Hi, i had downloaded this file and it seems that this is an unecrypted version of Linux OS that runs on top of E3 ODE Pro!!! And also it hold the database files with keys for a supported boot disk also. Could you please inform us how did you obtained this files? Do have access to its source code? Could you offer more details/files about this?
BTW i had downloaded this file and looked into its content and it seems this it is not a complete Linux distro for this embedded system E3 ODE Pro.
From zecoxao: that's a dump of the e3 ode iirc. and no, it's not fake.
