94w ago - Following up on their previous announcement of officially supporting PS3 dual-booting, today the E3DIY Team has made available a pin-out schematic and manual for fast dual-booting with their E3 Flasher device with PlayStation 3 CFW (Custom Firmware).
To quote from their site, roughly translated: 2012-02-26
1: New mainboard Fast dual boot successfully with E3 FLASHER. Click here (e3-tech.net/images/E3%20FLASHER%20PIC/new-mainboard-fast-dual-boo.jpg) to download manual.
2: E3 flasher Fast dual boot and downgrade OFW4.11 to 3.55 successfully, it's same way as downgrade 3.73 to 3.55. We suggest user upgrade to OFW4.11 and then downgrade to 3.55 from now on. And don't forget backup your OFW4.11 bios well.
3: Downgrade to OFW3.41 from CFW3.55CHECKOFF successfully, tested by E3TEAM. Now you can enjoy any 3.55FW by this way (downgrade to OFW3.41 and then upgrade to 3.55, include JB2CFW3.55, OFW3.55 and others). Click here (e3-tech.net/download.html) to download manual.

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 OS v1.22 for 2XXX-3XXX USER
E3 OS v1.21
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.
