Hey everyone I have an issue with my E3 Flasher. I recently purchased the Limited Edition and I have already done the part of opening up my PS3 and putting my E3 ribbon piece and hard drive in.
I am on the very first part to downgrading my PS3. In most tutorials I see that you must have the Dual Boot or the Regular update.bin file in order to update the E3 Flasher. I purchased an E3 Card Reader but the odd thing is when it is inserted both the Mico SD card Disk Drive shows up as well as the USB to the E3 Card Reader so all I do is put the update.bin in the Disk drive for the Mico SD card. Now the very first part is to put the first 2 tabs/switches down and the rest up. Turn on the Esata Station and Turn the Power on the PS3 on.
When the PS3 starts up the blue lights on the software board is suppost to automatically show, indicating that I have successfully updated the E3 Flasher. But instead of the blue lights showing up. . . nothing shows at all.
I am not sure if I need to do this very first part or not but I would like to go with the tutorial. Of course all I would like to do is downgrade from OFW 4.30 to 3.55 CFW. I have a CECH2001A, 120GB PS3. Now the thing that is different from all the other PS3 tutorials are that my NOR chip on my PS3 is angled differently so I had a harder time getting my E3 ribbon to attatch to the hard drive.
Thanks for listening and it would be great if someone could help me out. I will be posting a video on my youtube page soon and link it here on what the problem is so thanks for listening and I look forward to someone helping out as soon as possible.
