92w ago - Today the E3 Team announced they (and likely several other teams) will be releasing a PS3 CFW v4.30 for 'free' soon (since the PS3 LV0 / Bootldr / Appldr Keys etc are in the wild) with their own Game Manager as well.

To quote (via consolecrunch.com/lv0-4-25-lv2-4-25-and-lv0-4-30-dumped-decrypted/) are: Ok guys let's take a big step there is the lv0 4.25 decrypted (elf) you should able to find the keys for the lv2/lv1/appldr

Boot Loader SE Version 4.2.5 (Build ID: 4859,49406, .Build Date: 2012-09-10_13:48 :01)..SDK Version

And here's some cool info:

  • The people WHO don't have the E3 don't install the cfw 4.30 it lock you to 4.30 and you can go back to older firmware without e3
  • The E3 team patch the Lv0 of the 4.30 and i saw no really good things about it... careful seriously
  • Ok let's give more stuff after the Lv0 4.25 decrypted, the LV2 dump 4.21, here the LV0 4.30 decrypted too
  • Again i recommend to not install the E3 4.30 firmware they lock you and they patched the LV0 badly that to force you to use the E3 product in the future

Additional Information: The files are said to contain..

  • Boot Loader SE Version 4.2.5 ...(Build ID: 4859,49406, .Build Date: 2012-09-10_13:48 :01)........SDK Version

PS3 4.30 VSH.self Decrypted (from above) by PatrickBatman details, as follows:

4.30 VSH.elf - Old way to patch vsh.self was... Dont know this still applies:

Patch vsh.self by youself for new CFW

Update: From their page: 2012-10-28

The E3TEAM has released the latest E3 CFW4.30 for free. The bricking issue has been improved. Just download [Register or Login to view links] ([Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links]) and enjoy. (Pass is [Register or Login to view links])

Here we mention to E3 flasher users that you do not need to solder a wire to use the latest upgrade.bin file to unbrick a console.

Notes:

  • You still need to be on CFW v3.55 or OFW v3.55 to install this new CFW v4.30 from the E3 Team.
  • It is best if downgrading to follow the normal steps and dehashing like with Rogero just to be sure of no bricks.
  • E3 will be releasing an upgraded E3 Flasher 'update.bin' (firmware) to handle direct downgrading to CFW v4.30. (Beware: Their hardware required, just one of many strings now disclosed)

From their page (now removed as they claim they weren't ready yet ): 2012-10-26

1: E3TEAM released the latest E3 CFW4.30 free, it's improved the brick problem. We will release the new game manager if none brick matter happen. Just download [Register or Login to view links] (dead link now) and enjoy. (PASS is [Register or Login to view links])

Here we mention E3 flasher user that you needn't solder wire with latest upgrade.bin file to unbrick console.














From IRC comes some common sense: [+impacted] wow, one step solution for e3, release a cfw, brick a few consoles, sell a few flashers

Not sure why anyone would want to use a for-profit commercial company's free "bait" (with undisclosed strings attached) PS3 CFW and Game Manager (likely 'locked' to their CFW) over a truly free and open-source PS3 scene one though, as they could pwn, brick and lock your PlayStation 3 console at any time and you would be at their financial mercy to get it fixed, updated, etc similar to how people didn't fall for the recent BlueDisk CFW scheme.

If they truly wanted to help the PlayStation 3 scene they would simply release updated PS3 MFW scripts so people could make their own PS3 4.30 Custom Firmware without the need to worry about hidden DRM bundled in or downloading 170+MB files.

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!

s3nint3!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 OS v1.21

Download

  • 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

2013-10-16

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: [Register or Login to view links]

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.

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.

s3nint3!s3nint3!(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:
VIEW THE VIDEO HERE: [Register or Login to view links] (E3 ODE PRO TEST) (another: [Register or Login to view links])








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.
