January 31, 2013 // 7:58 pm - Today the E3DIY Team have officially announced the upcoming release of their E3 Station and PS3 Glitcher hardware products for PlayStation 3 console owners.

The E3 Station consists of several PC Boards for developers to experiment with their PS3 NOR or NAND Firmware and Blu-ray drives, while the PS3 Glitcher is an independent chip purportedly able to glitch the PS3 3K and 4K model consoles.

Below is the official Press Release, as follows: E3 Team, the world renowned PS3 team, the maker of E3 Flasher, E3 Card Reader and E3 CFW 4.30 etc, will release a Revolutionary new innovation product:

E3 Station

E3 Station is a multi-console supported platform, which we spent nearly a year developed by E3 Team. It has huge hardware scalability and various software applications. Its main features are:

1. A high-performance hardware architecture
2. Big HD touch screen allow players to use the software easily .
3. Support for an expansion hardware board. With the custom expansive board, the user can play backup game easily.
4. Multi-console compatable, such as PS3/XBOX360/WIIU, and also future PS4/XBOX720.
5. Built-in Bluetooth, WIFI and HDMI interface, support HD Internet TV and a variety of high-definition 1080P multimedia (include BD ISO).
6. Perfect quality and attractive price.

The E3 Station will be the best development tools for developers. E3 Team will open the application SDK, and provide free sample for those interested developers. The developer can release their work (software or hardware) which is based on the E3 Station for free or paid. E3 Team will also reward the good work, we will public later with the Awards Program.

We believe that with the support of many developers, E3 Station users will get the best experience. Addition, E3 Team will release over time various E3 expansion boards which run on the E3 Station. Users can choose which ones according to their own needs, so far the following boards are planned:

1: E3 NAND Board Kit

The NAND Board Kit includes the NAND board and the Nand CLIP. These boards work in conjunction with the E3 Station, the NAND-model PS3 Users can easily achieve one click downgrades without the need of any hassle or even a PC. Just touch E3 Station screen and downgrade is completed.

2: E3 NOR Board Kit

The NOR Board Kit includes the NOR board and the NOR Clip. These boards also work in conjunction with E3 Station, the NOR-model PS3 Users can easily achieve one click downgrades without the need of any hassle or even a PC. Just touch E3 Station screen and downgrade is completed.

About PS3 3K and 4K consoles, we will release 2 products for them:

1: E3 Drive EMU Board

The Drive EMU Board works with the E3 Station, users can run PS1/PS2/PS3 backup game from harddisk, this works on ALL PS3 models including 3K and 4K.

2: PS3 Glitcher

This is an independent small size chip with cheaper cost. It does not need additional hardware like the E3 Station. We have succeeded in glitching the PS3 3K and 4K a few months ago, all we need is some time to improve the boot rate. More special function expansion boards will be announced later (for XBox 360 and WII U etc), while welcoming the developers to obtain the SDK and E3 Station sample, to become the member of E3 developer team.

Here is our new email address for applying to become E3 developer: [email protected] Attached below is some pictures for our products, we will release more details later on in February.

1: PS3 Glitcher test board from E3 Team
2: E3 NAND and Nor expasion board
3: E3 Drive EMU test board front
4: E3 Drive EMU test board back

I merged it into the ongoing E3 discussion thread since it revolved around one of their products, as this is where we keep / archive all of the related E3 topics.

If you want to start a new help thread you can when your ribbon arrives though.

So I just opened up my PS3 and sanded down the part of the clip that's close to a resistor on the board (even though it wasn't touching it), cleaned up the clip with some alcohol, added a rubber piece on top, a penny, and another rubber piece and then I noticed that the ribbon had a small tear in it.

I just ordered a new ribbon from eBay. Hopefully it gets here in less than 2 weeks unlike the E3 flasher kit which took 2 months!

As for the log file, it doesn't mention any errors. Everything is OK on it.

BTW, I tried adding pressure with my hands to make some backups before I took apart the PS3 and this time the dumps had 38 dangers instead of 42.

Um, what happened to my thread?

There should be a log file also recorded on the Microsd card. You could send that txt file to racer as well.

You have determination. I remember your post now. But yeah you need verified dumps before flashing back, so do as said above.

Misiozol is right. You need to get a valid dump from the E3 flasher. I know you say that you have enough pressure it sounds like you need to have more pressure applied. When you are making the dump you can apply even pressure with the clips with your fingers.

Please try this again and then run the verifier to make sure you get all good and no error. I used a Sd card plastic piece from a laptop and just applied pressure with that and worked on the third dump.

PM racer and you can also have him verify your dumps for you. Good luck and post back your results.

Wrong , it will produce bad dump as not all addresses will be read !! Not much of options there , either you doing something wrong while dumping flash or your E3 if faulty (inner soldering) and makes bad dumps , be sides e3 is not best option in flashers but definitively cheapest inc. clip , if you have some soldering skills would look for teensy2.0++.

Okay so what are my next steps? I'm sure the clip is making contact with the nor chip otherwise it wouldn't even produce a dump, correct? What should I do?
