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.

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.

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

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!

I have a CECHA01 and a CECHL01. Which one is preferred by fellow modders to mod. Then, which is a better mod, E3, or ProgSKEET? I've read a lot on each one, and I'm not sure which way I want to go. Just looking for opinions to what others prefer and or done.

Does the E3 ODE PRO also work with 2XXX and 21XX models? It says so in their web page but there is no manual for these models.

Well, out of the four PSP FW versions I tried already, the only one that wouldn't even start PS3Jig and just gave me a black screen instead was 6.20. All of the others started the program normally.

After my last post, I was able to briefly test both the fat PSP running PSPJig and the E3 card reader on another PS3 that boots normally. The E3 turned blue and successfully put the console into factory mode. After trying two different USB drives, I was able to get the system back out of factory mode.

When I ran PSPJig to put the PS3 into factory mode again, the challenge-response sequence appeared on the PSP screen, but the PS3 wouldn't go back into factory mode even after several attempts. I didn't get a chance to try the E3 again yet, I assumed it would work.

Back on the PS3 with the five double-beeps, I tried the E3 card reader again and it still didn't work. I also put in the USB drive with the "get out of factory mode" program that worked in the normal system in case the broken one was already in factory mode from the previous owner, but the drive never powered up before the beeping began so it made no difference.

Scouring around every forum post I can find, there are quite a few other people who have run into the same problem over the years, but there hasn't ever been an explanation and the only suggested solution is flashing. Hopefully someone has unraveled this mystery by now though and they'll wander into this thread.
