Sponsored Links
173w ago - Following up on the initial news, today the E3 Team have made available a video of their E3 Flasher downgrading a PS3 Slim 3.70 Firmware console to version 3.55 without any soldering required.

To quote: E3DIY team announces a successful Slim Downgrade v3.70 to v3.55 with our new E3 FLASHER!

In only FIVE minutes, the whole downgrade progress was completed!

Time is short and operation is very easy, this is because of our exclusive special E3 FLASHER design:

  • ONE-Button Operation and NOR Flash onboard!
  • E3 FLASHER compatible all NAND FLASH and NOR FLASH consoles
  • With SLIM Consoles, no need for any soldering!
  • But with PHAT Consoles, some soldering will be needed!

In this video there no images of the E3 FLASHER as we need to keep our design under wraps until it is ready for release, I hope everyone understands.

The official version should be released next week, at that time there will be more videos and pictures and everything will be available to the public.





Also below is an E3 Flasher PS3 Dual Boot 3.70 to 3.55 Firmware video and details via e-mail:

E3 FLASHER - Dual Boot (3.70 to 3.55)

  • E3DIY team success dual boot with E3 FLASHER, you can switch 3.7 and 3.55 in few only a few seconds!
  • Easy with 1 key operation.
  • E3 company will release all details like picture, installation, operation and price next week.
  • Team E3DIY get another great progress for PS3 with E3 FLASHER, it will release at the same time next week.

PS: 4times switch showes same MAC address, to prove it is the same console.





Finally, from [Register or Login to view links], to quote on PS3 3.70 to 3.55 Firmware downgrading via Dospiedra's downgrade v2 patches:

This post will look at the different DATE-CODES that are present on the casing of a PS3 and if that DATE-CODE relates to a console version that can currently be downgraded from 3.70 to 3.55 using dospiedra’s V2 downgrade or a FAT console alternative.

DATE-CODES

The principle behind DATE-CODES is simple: the first character represent the YEAR, and the second character represents the QUARTER of that year it that console was manufactured.

DATE-CODE of “XY” would mean the console was manufactured in the “Y” QUARTER of YEAR “X”. Simple right?

6A - Downgradable (Never Produced?)
6B - Downgradable (Never Produced?)
6C - Downgradable (Never Produced?)
6D - Downgradable
7A - Downgradable
7B - Downgradable
7C - Downgradable
7D - Downgradable
8A - Downgradable
8B - Downgradable
8C - Downgradable
8D - Downgradable
9A - Downgradable
9B - Downgradable
9C - Downgradable (Slim Introduction?)
9D - Downgradable
0A - Downgradable
0B - Downgradable
0C - Downgradable
0D - Downgradable
1A - Downgradable (Factory Firmware 3.55 and lower only!)
1B - NOT Downgradable
1C - NOT Downgradable (Not out yet?)
1D - NOT Downgradable (Not out yet?)

The Date code can be found in the following locations (depending on your console type):

PS3 FAT: Sticker on the back.
PS3 Slim (CECH2 Series): Sticker on the bottom.
PS3 Slim (CECH3 Series): Sticker on the back.

UPDATE 1: I have been told that only consoles that come with firmware 3.55 and lower from factory are the only consoles that the downgrade should be attempted with.

Are there "fake" e3 flashers? Is it safe to get them from aliexpress (seems the cheapest)?

Thank you!

Just an update, still getting an error but ive made some progress.

Well ive managed to install the Rogero 4.55 CFW and i get the little Rogero Boot logo on startup so im assuming its "Jailbroken".

However now when i go to install the packages shown under the ps3 store i get this "An error occured during the install operation. (8002AE32)". And also "an error occured during the start operation" when opening the one directly above it titled */app_home/PS3_GAME/

Any ideas on what i might be doing wrong? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

My console model is: CECH 2001A

Install images after backing up with E3 Flasher and installing CFW are attached...

Thank you!

Hi, i have a ps3 model CECH-2001A on 4.55, im trying to go through the downgrade process this is my first time working with a non 360 console so its all new to me.

Hardware: E3 Flasher w/o esata station.

Issue: When i set all switches down except for the 3rd switch it goes through the process i believe 3 times then starts flashing left to right which as far as i can tell is supposed to be a success. When i go to put the SD card in my pc the sd card is blank?, i have tried multiple cards from 2gbs to 4gb cards and all have the same end result.

I did notice that after doing the backup, and power off the ps3 then settings all switches down except for the 6th switch for unlock, then it goes to the 2nd led staying lit, which as far as i can tell is from the sd card not being seated properly, i can assure you it is.

Can anybody please offer some kind of advice here? I would really appreciate it.

Thank you!
