192w ago - Following up on the initial news, today the E3 Team have made available a video of their E3 Flasher downgrading a PS3 Slim 3.70 Firmware console to version 3.55 without any soldering required.

To quote: E3DIY team announces a successful Slim Downgrade v3.70 to v3.55 with our new E3 FLASHER!

In only FIVE minutes, the whole downgrade progress was completed!

Time is short and operation is very easy, this is because of our exclusive special E3 FLASHER design:

  • ONE-Button Operation and NOR Flash onboard!
  • E3 FLASHER compatible all NAND FLASH and NOR FLASH consoles
  • With SLIM Consoles, no need for any soldering!
  • But with PHAT Consoles, some soldering will be needed!

In this video there no images of the E3 FLASHER as we need to keep our design under wraps until it is ready for release, I hope everyone understands.

The official version should be released next week, at that time there will be more videos and pictures and everything will be available to the public.




Also below is an E3 Flasher PS3 Dual Boot 3.70 to 3.55 Firmware video and details via e-mail:

E3 FLASHER - Dual Boot (3.70 to 3.55)

  • E3DIY team success dual boot with E3 FLASHER, you can switch 3.7 and 3.55 in few only a few seconds!
  • Easy with 1 key operation.
  • E3 company will release all details like picture, installation, operation and price next week.
  • Team E3DIY get another great progress for PS3 with E3 FLASHER, it will release at the same time next week.

PS: 4times switch showes same MAC address, to prove it is the same console.




Finally, from damox, to quote on PS3 3.70 to 3.55 Firmware downgrading via Dospiedra's downgrade v2 patches:

This post will look at the different DATE-CODES that are present on the casing of a PS3 and if that DATE-CODE relates to a console version that can currently be downgraded from 3.70 to 3.55 using dospiedra’s V2 downgrade or a FAT console alternative.

DATE-CODES

The principle behind DATE-CODES is simple: the first character represent the YEAR, and the second character represents the QUARTER of that year it that console was manufactured.

DATE-CODE of “XY” would mean the console was manufactured in the “Y” QUARTER of YEAR “X”. Simple right?

6A - Downgradable (Never Produced?)
6B - Downgradable (Never Produced?)
6C - Downgradable (Never Produced?)
6D - Downgradable
7A - Downgradable
7B - Downgradable
7C - Downgradable
7D - Downgradable
8A - Downgradable
8B - Downgradable
8C - Downgradable
8D - Downgradable
9A - Downgradable
9B - Downgradable
9C - Downgradable (Slim Introduction?)
9D - Downgradable
0A - Downgradable
0B - Downgradable
0C - Downgradable
0D - Downgradable
1A - Downgradable (Factory Firmware 3.55 and lower only!)
1B - NOT Downgradable
1C - NOT Downgradable (Not out yet?)
1D - NOT Downgradable (Not out yet?)

The Date code can be found in the following locations (depending on your console type):

PS3 FAT: Sticker on the back.
PS3 Slim (CECH2 Series): Sticker on the bottom.
PS3 Slim (CECH3 Series): Sticker on the back.

UPDATE 1: I have been told that only consoles that come with firmware 3.55 and lower from factory are the only consoles that the downgrade should be attempted with.

Is it possible to dump and modify the NOR with Super Slim 4xxx series? I have a E3 NOR flasher and was wondering if it is possible to install Habib 4.53 CFW or any other CFRW on it if I modify the NOR flash first.

I have used E3 flasher to install CFW on OFW ps3 before.

Below is another update on the E3 Manager for E3 ODE Pro which will be released soon.

The E3 Team shared a short Video they produced showing off the fact the E3 Manager is coming. Basically it looks like they figured out how to copy the way Cobra ODE v1.6 works, which I heard in the grapevine that 3k3y team is also looking at offering the same type of 'ISO Management' options as Cobra originally started:

yep your nor clip is loose and I use a couple of pennies as i am in England PMSL, but seriously this is the most common problem with the E3 Flasher, the amount of times I have had to take the board apart to make sure the clip is installed properly, especially as the dyn-001 boards I seem to always flash have small resistors either side of the Nor !

Once you have solved this problem, that is the main thing you EVER seem to face, oh cept putting the sd card in properly as its a right pain in the rear. Good Luck Buddy,

Its suppose to all light up at once. And when it disappears it means the update was taken. As for the sequence of blinking lights, it's because your nor clip is loose. Tape a couple nickels on the back to keep it tight with the board.

Another E3 update, roughly translated: 2013-10-25

Because of wrong operation of E3 ODE PRO, user update PS3 official firmware fail, and turn into upgrade cycle. This problem happened because user not turn E3 ODE PRO into the correct PS3 BD DRIVE MODE. Now user can turn the E3 ODE PRO into PS3 BD DRIVE mode for fix this problem even can't start PS3 correctly.

The select mode on PS3 menu is not same for Europe and Asia console. The Europe user should Press X but not Press O to choose from E3 OS. We are sorry take inconvenient for those user, we will fix it in the next update of E3 OS.

2013-10-24

After the hard work of the last few weeks , the E3 OS v1.23 is now available for download.

The important feature of this update is:
1: One update program for all slim console now
2: E3 ODE PRO mode and PS3 BD DRIVE mode is easier to switch
3: More stability and faster speed.

The new user manual v1.23 is also updated.

More boot disc type is supported by E3 ODE PRO, user can download the keys file and follow the instruction.
