Well I knew it would not be long before we started to see Round #2 of the "Clone Wars", just like we did a year ago when PS Jailbreak first hit the market, soon afterwards the various other chip makers jumped into the frying pan.
Now we been having all this ProgSkeet news, and great progress with people dumping NOR's, and Downgrading, and even Dual-Booting, by swaping HDD's and re-flashing.
Well entering the PS3 battle arena now is the good old Team E3DIY, they have produced good products before, like the E3 Reader which was many steps ahead of the no-name Clones, and bought to the table last many new features, even the first USB-Downgrader solution, during the early days of Factory/Service JIG information, which sadly shortly blocked with that famous v3.56 firmware release!
Here is the email that our friends over at PS3Hax got today from Team E3DIY which outlines the features they are planning:
The features above look amazing, first off it has its own NOR flash on-board, so that means doing something like FAST-SWAP would be ten times easier. -- Second the downgrading/dual-boot, might be all done via the device, once it is in place, you press a button and it reads, copys, and downgrades, and writes back to its own NOR. -- Time will only tell, how this installs inside your PS3, and does it need a PC also? -- Is it solderless, or easier to solder? -- The cost? -- The date it will be available? -- Alot of questions, but so far it is looking like a solid PS3 solution!
