118w 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!
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.

Below are more details from PS3 scene profiteers Paul Owen and Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA) as follows:
E3 ODE PRO, is almost ready for production starting as early as Sept. 28th, 2013
Good news everyone we have this evening from the E3 Team, they are basically done testing and improving the E3 ODE PRO and it is launching into full production before the end of this month.
(E3 ODE PRO package contain 3 boards and 5 cables, total 8 parts)
The E3 Team has moved onto the 'production' stage getting stock of their E3 ODE PRO ready for shipment, as all final tests have been completed, and they have now finally updated their official website, plus launched another website E3-Direct which will be handling all the 'reseller' orders for their product, along with a final HD video of their ODE device in action, plus some more info and specs on the final product design.
This month Sept. 28th, E3 ODE PRO will finally be on the market!
After many months the long-awaited E3 ODE PRO is set to launch this month on the 28th.
Its powerful amazing functions will deliver the goods, with features as follows:
NO EJECT, NO restart, one click to enter game automatically
NO EJECT, NO restart, one click to switch the game automatically
NO EJECT, NO restart, one click to switch the ODE and the original BD driver automatically
Fully compatible with existing ISO games and ISO conversion software
Supports all slim console including 2XXX, 3XXX and 4XXX Mode
One click upgrade, easy to use
Supports up to nearly a thousand kinds of boot disc, easily customize boot disc
PLEASE NOTE: (On the 2XXX, 3XXX models, the NO EJECT function will be released later on). Here is a newer clear video of it in action and some pictures of the E3 Pro from xonsox:
Today the E3-Team has released more information on their E3 ODE Pro below, as follows:
E3 ODE PRO upcoming, NO restart and NO eject video released !
E3TEAM released the E3 ODE PRO testing video and pictures, which show NO restart and NO eject BD drive, and declares the waiting for E3 ODE PRO is ending soon, as the official version will be ready soon.
The video shows E3 ODE PRO running two games selecting using MULTIMAN as an ISO. Play games and switch the game without having to restart and ejecting BD drive. Which protects the console, protecting the drive, to facilitate the player's ease of use is self-evident.
Meanwhile, E3TEAM claims E3 ODE PRO will be directly compatible with other similar products in all ISO games. No doubt, the low price and high performance worth will mean the user wishing to have ODE will wait until E3 ODE PRO is released.
E3TEAM specifically pointed out also that in order to prevent other companies from trying to clone the E3 ODE PRO function of NO restart, the video link below has gottten some treatment:

Finally, from PS3 scene profiteer Gary Wayne Bowser (aka GaryOPA): Hard to be fake, when it from the E3 Team that has proven themselves many times already in the PS3 Scene.
Not mention there been at least 4 other news stories regarding their ODE device already here, plus other videos showing it at various stages thruout development with the first stage being controlled by PC, the next stage a large developement board, then a smaller one, and now this one the almost finished product.
I guess you almost missed the reasons they stated in the first post why the video is not clear: E3TEAM specifically pointed out also that in order to prevent other companies from trying to clone the E3 ODE PRO function of NO restart, the video link below has gottten some treatment:
Maybe their 'special treatment' went a little overboard, but they are worried the other two REAL ODE's already on the market from Cobra and 3k3y which need to power-off and power-back-on after selecting a game before you can play it, don't copied their quick 'no restart' system, so they have still a bit of marketplace left when they get their ODE ready soon.
They lost their own english guy recently, reason why the e3-tech site is never updated, and I was able to get the codes and access for their official e3 english forums from another fellow that was helping them run it that also disappeared, so to hope to improve it and get more support working better, but they have noone official from their own company to reply to people questions anymore.
E3 is true 100% chinese cloner company, whereas at least Cobra and 3k3y have coders and backers with non-chinese background, just their stuff is assembled and shipped from china.
The best so far is main E3 guy speaks to me on skype with updates in his broken chinese, and also helps i know a bit of chinese from years of living with my asian girlfriend back in canada, and I help correct his PR notices the best I can.
Originally they said end of August it would be available, but from the looks of it they are still running behind, and not even sure what models it will support yet, as from the looks of it on the E3 ODE PRO PCBoard above there is only enough FPGA logic onboard to do the later SATA models of PS3, so it might be like 3k3y it will end up have two boards one PHAT and one SATA, and a number of QSB adapters for the various models 2k thru to 4k.
Oh'yeah some people were asking about what happen to the PS3 Glitcher, well last I heard it only work 1 in 10 tries, and they also lost one coder working on it, and truth be told they want to capture the ODE market first, so its on the back burner until this project is out of the while.
So far your Cobra is the best deal, it might be huge but at least in one package you get all the cables, and the QSB and all the FPGA logic to do all past, present and future PS3 models.
alright I did all the steps that you had to do using the tf cover board the next thing was the e3 card reader and i put the e3 card reader downgrader.bin on the card reader and I messed up because I turn on the ps3 and I forgot to press the eject button and the screen came on telling to plug up ps3 controller.
so I turn off the ps3 then turn it back on and tried it again and i did press the eject button and it did the same thing. I want to know if I should do the last step right before the e3 card reader downgrader.bin part and try it from there
The E3-Team has released another demo video for their PS3 ODE with details below, as follows:
To quote, roughly translated: E3 ODE DEMO run game successfully! Video: http://v.youku.com/v_show/id_XNTk4Mjc1ODA4.html
E3 ODE DEMO pictures released less than 2 weeks, the real game testing video has been released, compared with other PS3 ODE , the efficiency of E3TEAM is amazing!
Compared with the first test video with our PC, the E3 ODE DEMO speed has increased many times. E3TEAM will continue to optimize the operating speed.
And because E3 ODE processor is nearly twice the speed than other PS3 ODE processors, the final E3 ODE speed will be completely beyond other PS3 ODE.
A special emphasis on E3TEAM, the other PS3 ODE need to restart the PS3 or need to repeatedly pulling BD drive case when playing and switching game, these operations will seriously damage the life of PS3 or BD drive.
While the E3 ODE PRO unique technology, makes the user to completely avoid these risks, user playing the game and switching the game, without repeatedly restarting the PS3, also does not need to be repeatedly pulling the drive case, it protects the PS3 or BD drive life well.
This technology is E3TEAM exclusive research and development, and at present no other PS3 ODE has this function.
Again the E3 ODE PRO's official retail price is USD $79.80, and E3TEAM will be officially listing the unit for sale at the end of August.
