A question about using a dongle with E3 Flasher
I'm considering purchasing an E3 Flasher, but I am unsure why I need a downgrade dongle, and which one to use with the E3 Flasher. First off, is the dongle only used to get the PS3 into factory/service mode, or does it play other roles in the downgrade/jailbreak process? Secondly, could I use any other method of getting into factory/service mode such as using an iPod, Andriod, ect. instead of using a dongle? Lastly, I heard that the E3 Card Reader can be used as both a dongle and a microSD card reader. Can I use it to transfer E3 flasher files from my computer to a microSD card, then, when it needs to be used in the downgrade process, can I just take out the microSD card and use the E3 Card Reader in the downgrade process just like that?
I'm sorry if this is confusing I have lots of questions about using dongles with the E3 Flasher and I though maybe I could put some of them in this post.
