Need help with e3 flasher, Im confused
Need help with e3 flasher, Im confused –
I have a slim ps3 with the e3 flasher installed.
I am following the guide but am getting stuck on a few points.
I put the e3_downgrade.bin on the micro sd card of the e3 flasher and chage the switches to unlock and press start on the e3 and once the blue lights have finished it tells me to reset the ps3.
It says you should see something about connecting a ps3 remote then power down which i do.
It then says insert the downgrade dog into the right usb port but here is where i get confused.
I have an ps3 key will this do the same job?
Hoping someone can help me please.
yes, you can use old dongle like ps3break or other, but you will have ton installe PSGrade on it, to be able to use it to go into service mode on your PS3 ...
When you turn on the PS3 with Power + eject (you will have to unplug the power cord before), after a few seconds, the console will turn off. It will be in service mode.
Then, you will just have to put your USB Key with the 2 files and turn on the console ... which will turn off after a few minutes ...
And then, you will have to put your USB Key with the last file ... turn on the console ... which will turn off after a few seconds ...
And that's all ... You will be able to install pkg on it !
Hope it will help.
Im having issues getting into service mode.
I dont see the red writing that says its in service mode is this because im using hdmi?
Im following here:
downgrade procedure talked here refer to the way to enter the factory menu:
1. switch on your PS3 and with the controller, select the menu on XMB to "power off" the console.
2. Press and KEEP pressing the power button. the PS3 will power ON, you will hear 2 BIP sound, and the PS3 will shut down itself. Release the power button now.
3. Press and KEEP pressing the power button (yes, again, like on step2), this time it will boot on a new menu. Release the power button and follow the onscreen procedure to go to the downgrade menu (reinstall firmware etc.).
Anyone help me please.
I put the 2 files on usb and the ps3 does nothing.
To go in service mode, you just have to plug the dongle with PSGrade, unplug and replug the power cord, push On and just after Eject on the PS3.
You will 2 ou 3 bips (i don't remember) ... The dongle will go the right color (green or other depending of the model) and the PS3 turn off automatically ...
Then you have to put the USB key and begin downgrade ...
Good luck !
