    Well, As the tittle says, the e3 team finally released their first stock of E3 flasher limited version. This limlited version did some changes. At first, it is a solderless item, means you dont need to do any soldering job when you install this item, this is a good news for many guys who are bad at soldering. But there is a big change that the first e3 flasher limited version will dont have dual booting feature, this is the biggest change and a bad news for users. i can imagine that a lot of guys will be disappointed about this. some guys want to buy this item only because e3 flash have both downgrade and dual booting features.

    For some guys who dont know what is dual booting features. dual booting features means you can not switch the PS3 between V3.55 and V3.72 with E3flasher, without e3flasher, you can only use it to do the downgrade job, can't play on V3.72 and of course no psn.

    let's see the news from them

    "E3 flasher LIMITED version start to ship on 13th. We are sorry for the delay because CLIP component is very low rate .We had to ship small quantity like 100-200pcs every day recently , we are working hard to improve those problem. Now you can get new slim installation manual with clip from official web. E3 flasher limited version fixed on NOR FLASH FAT console not so good, you can know some from official web ,sure all NOR FLASH console is NO SOLDER include SLIM AND NOR FLASH FAT . We are regret that we had to cancel some function like dual boot from E3 FLASHER LIMITED versionbecuase NO solder function added(CLIP). We will develop a new flasher to add those function with few wire solder.We take some picture for E3 FLASHER LIMITED production, you can know production status official web ."

    So from the news we know that they cut the dual booting feature because of the solderless required. and they are working hard on making the dual booting feature can be available on next e3 flash version, we are looking forward to it.

    Get more info from here: http://www.digitopz.com/e3-flasher-downgrade-ps3-v370-to-v355-p-1091.html

    E3flasher specification Size: 24.5X14.5X10.5cm Weight: 1.3kg

    It is a heavy package with 11 items. here is the package pic

    Anyway, this item has released, the limited vsrsion downgrade V3.72 to V3.55 , solderless without dualbooting feature, is it worth buying for about 110USD or more. Depends on your thinking and choose.

    More news: it does not support 3.55 CFW or MFW, except for their specific version that no one has seen yet...so you can probably forget about the joys of Rebug and OtherOS. Also, they announced, "We will begin shipping on the 13th" on the 14th, and still no announcement that shipping has begun.

    This is starting to smell like roadkill baking in the sun.

    Gotta love this, it's almost as bad as demonhades' claims.

    First no longer solderless for all consoles
    Then no dual booting
    And now you can only use their cfw, as install any other including ofw bricks the console.

    This product has become more unattractive by the week! I am sure a few people will start to think why spend $80 on this when if they save up a bit more can get a 2nd hand ps3 on 3.55

    Hey...at least we know it isn't Vaporware...the claims of Vaporware get better over time.
