Sponsored Links
151w 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!

  • 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.

i think that you might have to get different versions of FW for the psp i know it was a FW that only a PHAT psp was able to go safely and you might have to try a different version of the downgrade files or was it the Lv2diag.self file... (i forgot it was one of those i couldn't get working with ps3jig) for a while and then after i tried everything the last one i tried worked (i even tried it on a 1.0 Phat downgraded psp lol)

Thanks, I tried that but still can't get any activity from PS3Jig after the USB driver started message. At least the PSP never bricked with me bouncing around between 5.00, 5.50, 6.20, and 6.60, but the PS3 is still sad and dead.

(i think) it was 5.00 m33 and it took me awhile to find that firmware online still but be careful because i read that it might mess up your psp but i had no problem with it at all and the tut for the jig app is this right here: [Register or Login to view links]

Hi! Do you know exactly which CFW you had on the PSP? I spent hours the other day repeatedly testing the original and Nabnab-modified versions of PS3Jig without success from my "fat" PSP.

I don't remember the exact CFW on the PSP at 6.60, but at 5.50 I used GEN-D3. After I tried everything on the fat PSP, I tried on a slim 2000-series unit without any luck either. I tried different USB cables in combination with everything and still nothing happened.

I just found an older service mode BIN for the E3 card reader and tried that, but the E3 still won't turn blue in the PS3.

well i had the same problem with the 5 double beeps brick on my slim ps3 when i changed it back to a CEX machine *no pun intended lol jk* from a DEX machine and i used a first gen psp that i downgraded to the right firmware for the app to work right and i just used the ps3jig app and it got it into service mode and i fixed that brick by myself and that scared the crap out of me when i bricked it >.<

it took me like two weeks just to figure that out i tried using the ps3jig app on other versions of my psp but it said that it was waiting for the ps3 to be connected and just hanged there forever
