Hi all,

I've been reading some post and I'm a little confused. I have seen it mentioned several times that an E3 Flasher can only be used on one PS3, is that correct? Does it in some way become locked to that device once it has been used? Sorry for the noob question, just want to see if I'm reading correctly!

I moved the post to our ongoing E3 product thread.. I'm not sure what the file name is offhand, but here is our archive of all the E3-related software they released on their page:

Hi all I'm a newbie,

Could someone give a link to E3 card reader firmware. I've looked everywhere and they all have been deleted. I have a E3 and need the files to go into fsm.
