Yeah, it's kind of hard to understand what they are saying. Hopefully when more people get this device we will know what it is capable of doing or not doing.

Some new info from the site:

News: 2011-10-18

We renew two file to fix game problem after downgrade to 3.55 .Please note don't install any other 3.55FW after downgrade to 3.55, otherwise will have brick risk ! Click here ([Register or Login to view links]) to download the E3_downgrade file copy to TF (for one key downgrade) V1.2 and Enter and exit factory service mode file V1.2 ([Register or Login to view links]).

You still can get 3.72 and 3.55 switch with 2 HDD, it need more steps than dual boot, maybe we can call it half dual boot. This way no need any solder. We will release this half dual boot way in few days, you just upgrade e3 flasher limited and get it work.

We are working hard to allow e3 flasher limited version works really dual boot, but we can't promise now because lots of changes.

New e3 flasher should come out in few month with more fantastic function !

According to above information,we will find that the E3Flasher has fixed some bugs, and please remenber this note : don't install any other 3.55FW after downgrade to 3.55, otherwise will have brick risk.

I'm not sure what this means. Do they talk about OFW and mean not to install a 3.55 CFW ?

All that sounds crazy also that Dual FW support is broken. I remember back to Wii times as the first clips came out. They would be soldered onto the pads of the chip and then easy clipped onto the chip with no diff in abilities. So why did they do a new Hardware only for the clip?

They just would have to do a clip that will be soldered onto the pads of E3 Flasher. On this way they would not have need to do a new version of the flasher and also they wouldn't have brake the Dual FW booting support.

They have also confirmed it works with 3.73:

E3 FLASHER LIMITED downgrade 3.73 to 3.55 successful , the way is same as before, no changes ! and also we upload a good working manager, you can check official web to download.

And also please note : after downgrade to 3.55, don’t install any other 3.55CFW or 3.55OFW, otherwise PS3 will get brick just install manager to play HDD game.

if you want play PSN, just upgrade to 3.73 with normal upgrade way (network or USB device).

Well it's much more easier to install than other downgrade devices, and if the downgrade method is simple and easy you can update to 3.56+ and then downgrade again. Which is still kind of "firmware dual booting".

In the end all that one will end up with is a high priced downgrade device. Just my two cents.

Unbelievable. All this time marketing a main feature, only to mess it up (if that's true) and release without it. Perhaps they promised too far ahead of themselves, which seems really sad in this scene.

Between this and DHJFW I'm about done with wishing for some decent hacking around in the guts of this thing.
