Sponsored Links
163w ago - Today the E3DIY Team has made available a PSN online demo video of their PS3 E3 Flasher going on PlayStation Network and Sony's PlayStation Home with a modified PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Clear up doubt, E3 FLASHER dual boot, 3.7 play PSN and 3.55 play HD game

After we release dual boot video, most player love it and also with some doubt. We understand, so today release a new video, and do some clarification.

1: E3 FLASHER not only a flasher, but with perfectly extension because integrated lots of interface, we will release more useful function later, all will be free just like we release golden finger function on E3 card reader.

2: E3 FLASHER can be upgrade from PC USB or TF card, very simple.

3: E3 FLASHER dual boot need 2 harddisk, one for 3.7 , another for 3.55. if you use only one HD, it will be required format everytime.

We will release a kit include ESATA station for you switch harddisk. (support 2.5 and 3.5' DISK)

4: At present, on nand flash console, it need solder wire. And no dual boot function because no 256M NAND FLASH ON E3 FLASHER.

On nor flash fat console, it need solder wire , and include dual boot function. On slim console, it no need solder wire but need solder some point.it is easy can be done in 3min. (don't misunderstand no solder wire means no solder)

5: We will release 2 new version E3 FLASHER at the end of this month.

One is 256M nand flash on board and with CLIP, to get dual boot and no solder function. Another is same as present E3 FLASHER but with CLIP, so all nor flash console no need any solder at that time. (sure cost will higher)

6: If all go well, we will release official picture and retail price on this Wednesday !

Update: E3 Flasher is a special device to help you program NAND and NOR flash memory. It supports all electronic device like DVD/BD/PS3/WII/XBOX360/MP3/MP4/Table PC which has NAND or NOR flash memory. Below are the official specs and pricing details alongside some pictures HERE and the E3 Flasher Installation Manual, as follows:

E3 Flasher = The world's first Dual-Boot, with simple 1 key operation = Surprising Arrival!

Device features:

  • Dual Boot 3.7OFW and 3.55CFW on same PS3
  • Downgrade 3.7 to 3.55 in 5min
  • 16M NOR FLASH ON board
  • 3 save MODE, can save data in TF, NOR FLASH on board and PC HD
  • 1 KEY operation, simple is best
  • Upgradable from TF card or PC USB
  • Compatiable all device like PS3/WII/XBOX360/MP3/DVD/BD/MP4/Table PC which has NAND or NOR flash memory.
  • Integrated lots of interface, perfectly extension, will have more function with future new E3 accessory.
  • E3 flasher Limited version includes 8 accessory, suggested retail price $88 USD, total production run only 3000 units!








Q1: What's the E3 flasher Limited?

The E3 Flasher Limited is an universal programmer for all NAND/NOR flash device. It support PS3 slim console better because E3 flasher limited has 16M NOR flash memory, and with soft board to connect SLIM console easier, and also this limited version include 8 accessory like ESATA STATION. Sure it also support NAND flash console & device.

Q2: How about installation for fat and slim ps3 console?

The limited version need solder 34 wires on NAND FLASH FAT CONSOLE, it need use E3 LINKER.
The limited version need solder 50 wires on NOR FLASH FAT CONSOLE,it need use E3 LINKER.
The limited version need solder some points on NOR FLASH SLIM CONSOLE, no need any wire.

Q3: How many Harddisk we need? What function with E3 Esata Station?

As fact, you no need any extra HD because you can take out ps3 internal HD and put into E3 esata station. It will play like internal HD. Every time if you change FW, you will be required fomat and upgrade. So if you want get more function like dual boot and fast switch FW function, you need prepare another HD for another FW, just like you will get 3.7HD for 3.7FW, 3.55HD for 3.55FW, all will be regards as internet HD. With E3 esata station, the internal HD size can be MAX to 2.5T, compatiable 2.5&3.5' HD with MAX to 3G speed , and also works 4GB+ game well ,this means no need USB HD anymore.

Q4: If we will get problem with PSN if switch to 3.7?

Some guy say there has unique ID inside original PS3 NOR FLASH, so it will get problem if you choose another NOR FLASH memory. We don't think so because you can keep original PS3 NOR FLASH with 3.7OFW, so even you connect to PSN, it will find you are original, change nothing! Sure you can keep 3.55CFW on E3 NOR FLASH.

Q5: Do we need any software and PC?

No, you no need install any software, no need any PC to operation. You get all function on E3 FLASHER itsself. just press key on E3 FLASHER COVER BOARD and wait few min or few second..

Q6: If PS3 upgrade to new firmware, does E3 FLASHER works again?

We can't promise but will do best to work and provide to all free, you should trust E3DIY team.

Q7: Which version PS3 can downgrade and dual boot?

We find all FAT console works , most slim console works even include some new slim console which come with 3.56+ original FW. We find 3000X version console can program correctly but can't downgrade and dual boot, we will do best to work it out and provide to all free.

I actually had this question recently myself as I too was getting ready to buy one. The answer I got with a helpful tutorial from playerkp420 was no using the noFSM Method.

That what I was told to do and it worked great. Downgraded 2 PS3's that way:

noFSM METHOD - No FSM dongle needed, and will not format your HDD

1. After making your backups continue here and leave your PS3 on. There is no need to reboot. If you patched your dump with the validation guide in Chapter 1, you can skip to step 8.
2. Download PS3 Flash Tool v4.55.rar ([Register or Login to view links]) if your PS3 is on OFW 4.55. Or download PS3 Flash Tool v4.60.rar ([Register or Login to view links]) if your PS3 is on OFW 4.60. Using the one for your firmware version, will allow your PS3 to boot to the XMB. You can still use either if on a lower OFW, but will boot to a recovery screen instead. Where you can install the CFW from there. So doesn't really matter what version you use.
3. Extract to Desktop or where ever you like.
4. Put your bkpps3.bin in the PS3 Flash Tool folder.
5. Drag and drop the bkpps3.bin onto ps3_dump_tool.exe
6. The program will open, validate (Hopefully you already validated above. But at least this may tell you if you missed something.), and ask if you want to patch it. Say yes and wait for it to apply the patches.
7. Now there will be a new file named bkpps3_NOR_patched.bin.
8. Delete all files from your sd card and put the bkpps3_NOR_patched.bin on it, renamed to bkpps3.bin
9. Put the sd card in the flasher.
10. Put all switches down on flasher. And press the red reset button under the esata plug on the faceplate.
11. Press start on flasher, and wait for blue leds to light up 1 by 1. When done lights will alternate flash. [You will need the blu ray drive and the HDD, attached for the next steps. So if you are going to remove the flasher, now would be the time to do so. Rebuild and change the thermal compound, with Artic Silver 5.]
12. Reboot PS3 from XMB or simply turn it on.
13. On boot you should see "please connect controller screen" (If your PS3 is on OFW 4.55 and you patched to 4.55, or on 4.60 and patched to 4.60 you will boot to the XMB. You can Install 4.55 CFW or later of your choice [for easier changing CFWs later on, I strongly suggest using the 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP ([Register or Login to view links]), and finish the rest of the guide] from XMB -> Settings -> System Update)
14. If you were on any other OFW than 4.55 and get the "please connect controller screen" then CONNECT THE CONTROLLER!
15. Put 4.55 CFW or later of your choice [for easier changing CFWs later on, I strongly suggest using the 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP ([Register or Login to view links]), and finish the rest of the guide] of your choice on your flash drive like this:

[Register or Login to view code]

If you are on OFW 4.55, you have to install 4.55 CFW or a CFW that syscon is changed to a higher version. If you are on OFW 4.55, use 4.55 CFW or higher. I strongly suggest using 3.55_Rogero_Dowgrader_RSOD.PUP ([Register or Login to view links]), then continue with Qa Flag and Installing OFW 3.55. Then update to any CFW. This will make for easier downgrading back to 3.55 or switching CFWs later. Qa Flag can not be enabled on 4.50, 4.53, or 4.55.

WARNING: If Minimum version checker said your PS3 can only go to 3.56, Do not use rogero downgrader. Use this REBUG 4.46.1 REX with syscon changed to 9.99 ([Register or Login to view links]). Then install Rebug toolbox from Package Manager>Install Package Files>PS3 Hard Disk. Open the toolbox and go all the way right, and enable Qa flag.

Then you can install any CFW you want, from the recovery menu or using Condor Updater ([Register or Login to view links]). Then you are done, and would only need to install any homebrew apps you want. First one I would suggest is multiMAN 04.60.00 BASE CEX.pkg] ([Register or Login to view links].

Get either Rogero 4.55 v1.00 from here, or REBUG 4.46.1 LITE or REX CFW, or Habib 4.60 or REBUG 4.53.3U REX COBRA. Always download CFWs from a trusted place and check the md5s of any firmware you are going to install, with this tool: [Register or Login to view links]

16. Insert into the right usb port of the PS3 and follow the on screen instructions, hold start and select. Or install from XMB system update if the PS3 was on OFW 4.55.
17. You will now boot to CFW.
18. If you went straight to 4.50, 4.53, or 4.55 CFW, Install the CFW again from System Update in the XMB. This will fill both ros0 and ros1 in the flash, to the same version. I have experienced some errors, when not installing the CFW 2 times. And is why I suggest using the downgrader pup and continuing with Qa Flag, etc...

I've looked at many youtube videos on how to jailbreak my PS3 and I still don't know how to do it.

I have a PS3 Super Slim that was bought this year (2014), and I do NOT have an E3 Flasher and I do not plan on getting one based on the prices. Does anyone have a good guide/download for me please?

Hello,

i downloaded this iso (thepiratebay.se/torrent/9449794/NES_Emulator_w__ROMs_[Cobra_ODE]_PS3), but i can't put another ROMS in it.

The description isn't very usefull... i extracted the iso, put the roms in the folder but after i rebuilt the iso the E3 manager doesn't detect it on the HDD.

Does any of you know how should i do this?
