Ok, I got the first reply from E3. They just said:
you really not read our manual for downgrade
we say very very clear : http://www.e3-tech.net/download/8%20...ion%20flow.rar
after you see the text come out, you must unplug ps3 power cable immediately
and then plug your downgrade dog
e3 card reader can be downgrade dog
English is not really my first language and I might not now a word or 2, but i swear, i can't read "English-Detailed specification for E3 FLASHER relegation flow" as "downgrade guide". So for those who didn't know (like me). "English-Detailed specification for E3 FLASHER relegation flow" is actually an Instalation Guide
! It's on their website by the way.
At any rate at that time i didn't have a dongle so i used a lot of different combinations and a psp service mode method. I do already know some people got a brick before/during "connect a controller" part, but Did anyone actually brick the PS3 by following the guide to exactly as they say?
Different people taking different actions with E3 Flasher and yet they end up in the same position: Satisfied finally getting a replacement for a bricked PS3.
