78w ago - This weekend the E3 Team have announced a new PS3 JailBreak alongside news of another PlayStation 3 DRM-infected USB dongle currently in development.
Below are the details, as follows: Official Statement from E3 Team Regarding a New PS3 Jailbreak
Few days ago, there was news posted on various Web sites that we had cloned JB2 (aka) True Blue (TB) successfully.
We clarify we did not clone any other product, but we did find the ways on how to allow the newer games to work on CFW v3.55.
Our research has found 3 different ways to allow newer games to work on older firmwares!
No need of any new keys, but allows SOME new games to work on CFW v3.55 with a special bypass.
We think the USB device on market uses this system. (Maybe)
With this method, most games even v4.11 games can run on CFW v3.55 very easily.
But there has some games that can't work with this A way.
E3 Team knows this A way very well and can modify a newer v3.6+ game in 10 min.
Decrypt games with it's private key and encrypt with v3.55 key, so game can run on CFW v3.55 successfully.
For example, you need v3.65 key to decrypt v3.65 game. Need v4.11 key to decrypt v4.11 game.
E3 Team can successfully get all newer keys up to v4.11.
We are 100% sure we can get all keys to v4.20 or higher FW with same way, only it takes some more time.
This means, E3 Team can decrypt all newer games with this B way.
As a matter of a fact, we are planning a newer CFW (no more need to be stuck on v3.55) when we have completed our research.
Modify Blu-ray firmware to allow newer games to run on older firmware.
But only a few of the newer games can work with this C way, so we stopped researching this method.
We are in the progress of developing a new USB device, to allow users to enjoy our work with economical cost. We will release further news and list of its features regarding this new product at a later date.
Finally, to thank all of users whom have supported us in the past with our previous products, like the E3 Card Reader and E3 Flasher, we have decided to release 2 game eboots for free for everyone to enjoy that work directly on any console running CFW v3.55 directly.
Remember our current product, the E3 Flasher is also very useful for Dual-Boot and to downgrade on older consoles, as for now we need to still stay on CFW v3.55.
PS: Unfortunately the latest Slim 3000x consoles can't work currently with downgrade or dual-boot methods mentioned above, as it is fully difference design compared to the older PS3 consoles, but have no fear we are still working hard on solving this puzzle.
Below is links to our proof videos to show our work. First we run Ninja Gaiden 3 using the A way and then second we run Splinter Cell Trilogy HD with B way, which no matter how hard you have tried the A way it will never run.
Shows Ninja Gaiden 3 working and also Splinter Cell Trilogy HD working, the later game has not been released by any other Jailbreak dongle yet.
Downloads (Confirmed working with Kmeaw 3.55 PS3 CFW with NO dongle required! PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware 3.41 users can simply apply the required PS3 EBOOT patch below and then edit their PARAM.SFO file to read as 3.41 instead):
Ninja Gaiden 3 EUR EBOOT FIX 3.55 by Team E3
Here is EBOOT fix for Ninja Gaiden 3 that works with 3.55 Kmeaw. Tested and worked from internal with Ninja.Gaiden.3.PS3-DUPLEX release!
Those having lockup issues with FIFA Street using the World Tour option can use the new fix that adds a missing SPRX file to allow the game to run on PS3 CFW 3.55. Be sure the SPRX file gets overwritten in this directory on your HDD containing the FIFA Street game:

Below are more details from PS3 scene profiteers Paul Owen and Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA) as follows:
E3 ODE PRO, is almost ready for production starting as early as Sept. 28th, 2013
Good news everyone we have this evening from the E3 Team, they are basically done testing and improving the E3 ODE PRO and it is launching into full production before the end of this month.
(E3 ODE PRO package contain 3 boards and 5 cables, total 8 parts)
The E3 Team has moved onto the 'production' stage getting stock of their E3 ODE PRO ready for shipment, as all final tests have been completed, and they have now finally updated their official website, plus launched another website E3-Direct which will be handling all the 'reseller' orders for their product, along with a final HD video of their ODE device in action, plus some more info and specs on the final product design.
This month Sept. 28th, E3 ODE PRO will finally be on the market!
After many months the long-awaited E3 ODE PRO is set to launch this month on the 28th.
Its powerful amazing functions will deliver the goods, with features as follows:
NO EJECT, NO restart, one click to enter game automatically
NO EJECT, NO restart, one click to switch the game automatically
NO EJECT, NO restart, one click to switch the ODE and the original BD driver automatically
Fully compatible with existing ISO games and ISO conversion software
Supports all slim console including 2XXX, 3XXX and 4XXX Mode
One click upgrade, easy to use
Supports up to nearly a thousand kinds of boot disc, easily customize boot disc
PLEASE NOTE: (On the 2XXX, 3XXX models, the NO EJECT function will be released later on). Here is a newer clear video of it in action and some pictures of the E3 Pro from xonsox:
Today the E3-Team has released more information on their E3 ODE Pro below, as follows:
E3 ODE PRO upcoming, NO restart and NO eject video released !
E3TEAM released the E3 ODE PRO testing video and pictures, which show NO restart and NO eject BD drive, and declares the waiting for E3 ODE PRO is ending soon, as the official version will be ready soon.
The video shows E3 ODE PRO running two games selecting using MULTIMAN as an ISO. Play games and switch the game without having to restart and ejecting BD drive. Which protects the console, protecting the drive, to facilitate the player's ease of use is self-evident.
Meanwhile, E3TEAM claims E3 ODE PRO will be directly compatible with other similar products in all ISO games. No doubt, the low price and high performance worth will mean the user wishing to have ODE will wait until E3 ODE PRO is released.
E3TEAM specifically pointed out also that in order to prevent other companies from trying to clone the E3 ODE PRO function of NO restart, the video link below has gottten some treatment:

Finally, from PS3 scene profiteer Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA): Hard to be fake, when it from the E3 Team that has proven themselves many times already in the PS3 Scene.
Not mention there been at least 4 other news stories regarding their ODE device already here, plus other videos showing it at various stages thruout development with the first stage being controlled by PC, the next stage a large developement board, then a smaller one, and now this one the almost finished product.
I guess you almost missed the reasons they stated in the first post why the video is not clear: E3TEAM specifically pointed out also that in order to prevent other companies from trying to clone the E3 ODE PRO function of NO restart, the video link below has gottten some treatment:
Maybe their 'special treatment' went a little overboard, but they are worried the other two REAL ODE's already on the market from Cobra and 3k3y which need to power-off and power-back-on after selecting a game before you can play it, don't copied their quick 'no restart' system, so they have still a bit of marketplace left when they get their ODE ready soon.
They lost their own english guy recently, reason why the e3-tech site is never updated, and I was able to get the codes and access for their official e3 english forums from another fellow that was helping them run it that also disappeared, so to hope to improve it and get more support working better, but they have noone official from their own company to reply to people questions anymore.
E3 is true 100% chinese cloner company, whereas at least Cobra and 3k3y have coders and backers with non-chinese background, just their stuff is assembled and shipped from china.
The best so far is main E3 guy speaks to me on skype with updates in his broken chinese, and also helps i know a bit of chinese from years of living with my asian girlfriend back in canada, and I help correct his PR notices the best I can.
Originally they said end of August it would be available, but from the looks of it they are still running behind, and not even sure what models it will support yet, as from the looks of it on the E3 ODE PRO PCBoard above there is only enough FPGA logic onboard to do the later SATA models of PS3, so it might be like 3k3y it will end up have two boards one PHAT and one SATA, and a number of QSB adapters for the various models 2k thru to 4k.
Oh'yeah some people were asking about what happen to the PS3 Glitcher, well last I heard it only work 1 in 10 tries, and they also lost one coder working on it, and truth be told they want to capture the ODE market first, so its on the back burner until this project is out of the while.
So far your Cobra is the best deal, it might be huge but at least in one package you get all the cables, and the QSB and all the FPGA logic to do all past, present and future PS3 models.
alright I did all the steps that you had to do using the tf cover board the next thing was the e3 card reader and i put the e3 card reader downgrader.bin on the card reader and I messed up because I turn on the ps3 and I forgot to press the eject button and the screen came on telling to plug up ps3 controller.
so I turn off the ps3 then turn it back on and tried it again and i did press the eject button and it did the same thing. I want to know if I should do the last step right before the e3 card reader downgrader.bin part and try it from there
The E3-Team has released another demo video for their PS3 ODE with details below, as follows:
To quote, roughly translated: E3 ODE DEMO run game successfully! Video: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNTk4Mjc1ODA4.html
E3 ODE DEMO pictures released less than 2 weeks, the real game testing video has been released, compared with other PS3 ODE , the efficiency of E3TEAM is amazing!
Compared with the first test video with our PC, the E3 ODE DEMO speed has increased many times. E3TEAM will continue to optimize the operating speed.
And because E3 ODE processor is nearly twice the speed than other PS3 ODE processors, the final E3 ODE speed will be completely beyond other PS3 ODE.
A special emphasis on E3TEAM, the other PS3 ODE need to restart the PS3 or need to repeatedly pulling BD drive case when playing and switching game, these operations will seriously damage the life of PS3 or BD drive.
While the E3 ODE PRO unique technology, makes the user to completely avoid these risks, user playing the game and switching the game, without repeatedly restarting the PS3, also does not need to be repeatedly pulling the drive case, it protects the PS3 or BD drive life well.
This technology is E3TEAM exclusive research and development, and at present no other PS3 ODE has this function.
Again the E3 ODE PRO's official retail price is USD $79.80, and E3TEAM will be officially listing the unit for sale at the end of August.
