I'm assuming it just switches between PS3 NOR and E3 NOR. Now, lets say we set up 3.72 OFW on PS3 NOR and 3.55 CFW on E3 NOR. When a new OFW release is available can we just update it normally (using a USB disk or PS3 online update, without using E3)? Or we need to wait for a "modified" OFW version to flash using E3? In other words, when everything is set up and working, do we need to use E3 flash function to do anything other than FW downgrading or backing up?
Is there any instruction manual available that explains all those switches and everything?
Thank you very much!
the best thing to do when a new fw comes out its just wait till e3 flasher devs and proskeet devs comfirms that the new ofw works , i cant see why it wouldnt work but i say it best to wait ,it only be a hour or so , till they comfirms like they did with 3.72 ofw ,
there no manual yet but there will be soon , cant wait till the 10th

i swear i read somewhere that its impossiable that the new unhackable slim cant be downgraded becaue sony did somethink , but what about ofw on the ps3 and cfw on the e3flasher , maybe that way would work but best thing to do is email the e3 team . that way u know for sure
