UPDATE: TEAM E3 HAS REPLACED THE ORIGINAL ESATA DOCKING STATION WITH A NEW ESATA HDD ADAPTER WITH SMALLER FORM FACTOR. AS OF 5.20.14 YOU RECEIVE THESE IN SMALLER PACKAGING FROM THE E3 TEAM!
ALL E3 Flashers Kits are sold with European power supply adapters. Power conversion adapters for US/Canada power sold separately.
If you are outside North America, shipping may be slightly more than as shown on our website due to the weight of the E3 Flasher being 3lbs. You will be contacted to pay for additional shipping.
You will also need a downgrade dongle such as the E3 Card Reader AVR to perform the downgrade.
Warning. This product is not 'hard' to install, but is very easy for you to stuff up your console. There is no warranty on the clip device. You have 1 shot to get it onto the console. If you apply the clip wrong you will get a bad read, and the pins on the clip will be damaged.
Please note that you have to make sure the clip is perfectly flush with the motherboard before you press it down. The majority of the issues lie with improper installation of the clip. If the clip is uneven before you press it down, it will slightly bend the pins on the bottom of the clip.
This Ultimate PS3 Downgrade Device - will allow you to downgrade a NOR PS3 from any new firmare to 3.55!
This device is only for consoles with NOR flash, not NAND at the moment. (Doesn't work on Slim 3000 or superslim consoles)
Here is a great installation video:
These are the pre-packaged contents for the E3 Flasher complete kit. If you see resellers/distributors selling for less, it's because they are not selling the package with everything seen below.
NOTE: NEW E3 ESATA DOCKING STATION REPLACED BY SMALLER E3 ESATA USB HDD ADAPTER!
This device will require you to simply open up your SLIM PS3 to take the HD out and solder. For the FAT PS3 you WILL require soldering! As well, the plug that they include with the sata dock is not North American.
Please double check to make sure it works with your PS3 as we will not issue refunds if it is not compatible with your PS3 after it has been installed.
