The console in question was a cech2504 with Datecode 1B. I guess that's where that will forward all Datecode and not downgrade for the moment

All that they are doing is giving a minimum version that you can downgrade to.

Sure, you can downgrade only in accordance with minimum supported firmware of your ps3.

So does this mean the E3 flasher will not work on these new consoles?

Anyways, I hope dospiedras1973 can find a way past this.
