Sponsored Links
77w 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
3: E3 Drive EMU test board front
4: E3 Drive EMU test board back

I'm following [Register or Login to view links] for the 5 double beep brick but my E3 card reader won't turn blue when I power up the PS3 and I can't get it into service mode.

The E3 should turn orange, then blue and a few seconds later the PS3 should shut down. Instead, the E3 turns orange, then turns off, and a minute or two later the PS3 eventually shuts down. Someone else with the same problem made a video showing the problem:





The E3 card reader turns blue when I drag e3downgrade 12.03.bin to the upgrader part of it, so it seems to be flashing okay. In addition to using the E3 device, I tried a couple of PSPs running PS3Jig and those both hung on the driver started message.

Anybody have any idea why the E3 card reader won't work properly in the PS3? It's a CECHA01 if that makes any difference.

Download: keys.zip

From Joonie86: It seems that if you make this homebrew with any fixed pkg in ISO format, I assume this will work on any ODEs. Unfortunately, I can't make SWAP disc for my 4k /OFW 4.55 at the moment, I can't test this.

Wondering if anybody wants to confirm this. If this this working, pkg install will be a lot easier than using IDC, multiman or other file manager.

The E3 ODE OS 2.0 latest firmware update is released. The release includes bypass of the security measures introduced in the infamous ode-blocking 4.55 ofw from Sony. The bypass has a catch which is to create a Blu-ray boot disc for the games on the external hdd.

This means you must own or know someone who owns a Blu-ray disc writer which can be a real pain for some, but this is a measure for 4k ps3's only. A new feature implemented is the ability to boot games in folder format instead of iso which is a big plus.

Remember that for this you will need a original eboot or a resigned one. They will release a one-click resign software soon. Also in the next firmware they will release a pkg installer.
