September 5, 2011 // 1:14 pm - Today the E3DIY Team has made available a PSN online demo video of their PS3 E3 Flasher going on PlayStation Network and Sony's PlayStation Home with a modified PlayStation 3 console.

To quote: Clear up doubt, E3 FLASHER dual boot, 3.7 play PSN and 3.55 play HD game

After we release dual boot video, most player love it and also with some doubt. We understand, so today release a new video, and do some clarification.

1: E3 FLASHER not only a flasher, but with perfectly extension because integrated lots of interface, we will release more useful function later, all will be free just like we release golden finger function on E3 card reader.

2: E3 FLASHER can be upgrade from PC USB or TF card, very simple.

3: E3 FLASHER dual boot need 2 harddisk, one for 3.7 , another for 3.55. if you use only one HD, it will be required format everytime.

We will release a kit include ESATA station for you switch harddisk. (support 2.5 and 3.5' DISK)

4: At present, on nand flash console, it need solder wire. And no dual boot function because no 256M NAND FLASH ON E3 FLASHER.

On nor flash fat console, it need solder wire , and include dual boot function. On slim console, it no need solder wire but need solder some point.it is easy can be done in 3min. (don't misunderstand no solder wire means no solder)

5: We will release 2 new version E3 FLASHER at the end of this month.

One is 256M nand flash on board and with CLIP, to get dual boot and no solder function. Another is same as present E3 FLASHER but with CLIP, so all nor flash console no need any solder at that time. (sure cost will higher)

6: If all go well, we will release official picture and retail price on this Wednesday !

Update: E3 Flasher is a special device to help you program NAND and NOR flash memory. It supports all electronic device like DVD/BD/PS3/WII/XBOX360/MP3/MP4/Table PC which has NAND or NOR flash memory. Below are the official specs and pricing details alongside some pictures HERE and the E3 Flasher Installation Manual, as follows:

E3 Flasher = The world's first Dual-Boot, with simple 1 key operation = Surprising Arrival!

Device features:

  • Dual Boot 3.7OFW and 3.55CFW on same PS3
  • Downgrade 3.7 to 3.55 in 5min
  • 16M NOR FLASH ON board
  • 3 save MODE, can save data in TF, NOR FLASH on board and PC HD
  • 1 KEY operation, simple is best
  • Upgradable from TF card or PC USB
  • Compatiable all device like PS3/WII/XBOX360/MP3/DVD/BD/MP4/Table PC which has NAND or NOR flash memory.
  • Integrated lots of interface, perfectly extension, will have more function with future new E3 accessory.
  • E3 flasher Limited version includes 8 accessory, suggested retail price $88 USD, total production run only 3000 units!






Q1: What's the E3 flasher Limited?

The E3 Flasher Limited is an universal programmer for all NAND/NOR flash device. It support PS3 slim console better because E3 flasher limited has 16M NOR flash memory, and with soft board to connect SLIM console easier, and also this limited version include 8 accessory like ESATA STATION. Sure it also support NAND flash console & device.

Q2: How about installation for fat and slim ps3 console?

The limited version need solder 34 wires on NAND FLASH FAT CONSOLE, it need use E3 LINKER.
The limited version need solder 50 wires on NOR FLASH FAT CONSOLE,it need use E3 LINKER.
The limited version need solder some points on NOR FLASH SLIM CONSOLE, no need any wire.

Q3: How many Harddisk we need? What function with E3 Esata Station?

As fact, you no need any extra HD because you can take out ps3 internal HD and put into E3 esata station. It will play like internal HD. Every time if you change FW, you will be required fomat and upgrade. So if you want get more function like dual boot and fast switch FW function, you need prepare another HD for another FW, just like you will get 3.7HD for 3.7FW, 3.55HD for 3.55FW, all will be regards as internet HD. With E3 esata station, the internal HD size can be MAX to 2.5T, compatiable 2.5&3.5' HD with MAX to 3G speed , and also works 4GB+ game well ,this means no need USB HD anymore.

Q4: If we will get problem with PSN if switch to 3.7?

Some guy say there has unique ID inside original PS3 NOR FLASH, so it will get problem if you choose another NOR FLASH memory. We don't think so because you can keep original PS3 NOR FLASH with 3.7OFW, so even you connect to PSN, it will find you are original, change nothing! Sure you can keep 3.55CFW on E3 NOR FLASH.

Q5: Do we need any software and PC?

No, you no need install any software, no need any PC to operation. You get all function on E3 FLASHER itsself. just press key on E3 FLASHER COVER BOARD and wait few min or few second..

Q6: If PS3 upgrade to new firmware, does E3 FLASHER works again?

We can't promise but will do best to work and provide to all free, you should trust E3DIY team.

Q7: Which version PS3 can downgrade and dual boot?

We find all FAT console works , most slim console works even include some new slim console which come with 3.56+ original FW. We find 3000X version console can program correctly but can't downgrade and dual boot, we will do best to work it out and provide to all free.

I've used an e3 flasher over the weekend on a my Killzone bundle that got accidentally updated by a friend. By far the easiest compared to other methods - even though there were some issues with positioning the clip. There are a few good youtube videos out there, just search and follow them

I been hacking~jail breaking but we all know that not all the ps3's UPDATPUP. Are most of the updates fake because each one I have used are all corrupted. So is a e3 flasher a more easier/only way of jail breaking?

Hi Sharred this is a common problem with the E3 product and tends to give you bad dumps. You need to have even pressure throughout the process of your dump otherwise this will happen.

You will also want to check the clip and see if the clip does not have bent pins. You might be better off buying yourself a new clip. Good Luck and please let us know what results you get.

Hi there, I just bought a cechk ps3 that was on Rogeros 4.4X custom firmware but then updated via Pro Evolution 16 to official 4.75 by accident.

I have used e3 on my friends ps3 and I am not a total noob but now i am experiencing a problem, Ps3 dump checker always failed on 88 of 138 checks. I updated to 4.76 and still have the same errors.

What should I do now? Is it possible that the clip doesnt fit very well or has to do something with the need of dehashing?

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.
