Sponsored Links
155w 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.

Hi guys, my first post here

PS3 FAT 40 GB
CECHJ04 (NOR)
Motherboard: DIA-002
If you need more data let me know

Well, I did the update and it went well then I was about making the first dump and I got 10001100 in the blue lights. I opened my Ps3 again to adjust the NOR clip with some pression and I even filled a bit the sides of the clip.

I'm turning the Ps3 on and the ventilator starts going insanely fast and immediately I hear 3 "PI"s and a red light flashing (when I turn on the console it gets to reach the photosensitive epilepsy warning).

Now, it happens everytime I turn on the console. I though it could just be overheating but it's too coincidental... I don't know . What should I do?, sold instead of using NOR clip?, sold only SBE nor trisate?

Greetings!

I'm new to the whole playstation modding scene. I just downgraded my PS3 to 3.55, and now I'm just completely confused. I've been reading through info on custom firmwares and modded firmwares for a few days and it's only served to leave me even more confused.

Firstly let me explain my setup as it is, and then explain my goals.

CURRENT
Mod: E3 Dual-Boot Mod
PS3 Firmware: 3.55 OFW
E3 NOR Firmware: 3.55 OFW
PS3 HDD: 160GB
E3 HDD: 2TB

GOAL
Mod: E3 Dual-Boot Mod
PS3 Firmware: X.XX O/C/MFW (Access to PSN)
E3 NOR Firmware: X.XX C/MFW (whichever suits my intent better)
PS3 HDD: PSN Downloaded Games
E3 HDD: Copy all my disc Games. Plus some kind of video player that supports subtitles and Samba (Windows File Sharing- PS3's media server options are very disappointing)

Question 1: What's the best CFW or MFW to flash to the E3 given my intent
Question 2: Once a C/MFW is Flashed what's the next step towards my goal
Question 3: I intend only to use the PS3 flashed Firmware to go online is there a safe custom or modified firmware capable of this or will i have to move to the latest OFW
Question 4: Best Backup Manager to use (given that all backups will be run from the E3 Firmware Harddrive)
Question 5: Is Showtime the only Media Center option?

thanks in advance!
