    Hi guys... I know we all are exploring ou cobra and our 2.0 huge update,
    but in this meantime E3 team is about to release something that we can
    port to our cobra: Unofficial PKG instalation support.
    Source: http://www.e3-tech.net/

    Lets see how it will roll out and if possible we can also use/port it on our cobra....[????]

    The update is expected in the next 2-3 days...

    Was that meant to be racist? I'm not trying to start anything, but if so, that is seriously not acceptable.

    I don't think that guy meant to be racist, from what I experienced back in 2005, they would tell things like

    ~过两三天就可以了[meaning : it takes about 2-3days] and took me 1 month almost.

    Things might be different now it's 2014.

    It was a broad generalization based on history with these specific "chinese" Not "Because they are CHINESE they lie and say 2-3 days when, yet it always takes 2-3 Weeks" but rather "They mislead saying 2-3 days but these chinese guys in my experience say 2-3 days but take 2-3 weeks always"

    You know what in writing this I realize I completely agree... The same statement could have been said, more accurately at that, if simply said "2-3 weeks actually they are E-3 team"... Not cool.. Though I don't think he meant anything by it....

    I'm not sure about his intent, but racist remarks are unacceptable. If you see something that you feel is racist, you should report it or at least post your opinion of it so people know if it crosses the line. Probably best to avoid assigning negative character traits to ethnic groups.

    The one key install unofficial PKG software released, all E3 ODE PRO user can run it by copy this software, please read the manual . At the same time, the E3 Global Forum www.e3forums.net officially running, all E3 users can get help through this forum.


    Download E3 PKG INSTALLER and Manual

    It seems that if you make this homebrew with any fixed pkg in ISO format, I assume this will work on any ODEs,

    Unfortunately, I can't make SWAP disc for my 4k /OFW 4.55 at the moment, I can't test this.

    Wondering if anybody wants to confirm this.

    If this this working, pkg install will be a lot easier than using IDC, multiman or other file manager.

    I have just tested it. No good news...

    I have made an Iso with e3 installer with Strider (game) pkg, the iso boots fine but after enter in the menu
    it shows the error: "E2 OS not found". It seems the installer makes a check to see if its running under E3 OS.

    Someone with the right knowledge could port the installer to run on cobra...

    yeah I guess we have to disassemble the elf file to get rid of that E3 OS check? Thanks for the report.

    I'm actually going to give unknown.92 the benefit of the doubt since it's a tad ambiguous, and we won't be derailing this thread.
    And this PKG installer, it can install unofficial PKGs right?

    *edit* oh wait read the thead title :bullhead:

    There's nothing magical about their application. I believe Eleganz had support for installing unofficial pkg files, but the developer removed that when he ported it to Cobra, I don't know why. If you want to try and use their application, maybe you can create a FAT32 usb stick with the right volume name and files to make it look like it's the E3 virtual disc.

    I noticed that too, I just wondered how they were able to bypass the signature check, but it wasn't anything special, it's almost as good as previous methods but just a bit easier that was all, thanks for the report and tips!

    There's nothing special in E3 pkg installer

    As a E3 user I tried it with lots of pkgs and almost all of them can be installed.
    I tried PSN games, fine, but after installed the fix pkg, boot failed.
    I tried mm4.55, fine, boot failed.
    I tried reactPsn, fine, boot failed.

    The only thing works is PSP games which functions as CFW.
    So basically you can install everything you can, but it boots or not is a different story.

    I noticed that the only difference between MM and E3 installer is E3 installer also rebuilds the game list. So anything you installed will appear in XMB directly.

    Does anyone know is there and patch pkg that can patch things like ECDSA check?(which only replace files)

    "/dev_usb000/E3ODE.readme.txt" is not part of the E3-PackageInstall release.

    In the E3 manual looking at the screen shot:

    E3 PKG Installer 1.0
    supported by E3team
    searching files in /dev_bdvd/PS3_game/USRDIR

    "/dev_usb000/E3ODE.readme.txt" is not in the screen shot.
    "Error: E3OS not found\n" is not in the screen shot.
