    the e3 is a hardmod which clips on to the NOR chip.

    I forgot
    godreborn would be correct, it's a hardcore that requires you to open your PS4 and clip the device to the NOR chip. It's an easy install, but does require some know how with hardware.

    you'll need the progskeet or teensy++ if u have a NAND which is most phat models. only the later ones use a NOR chip. both of those require soldering.

    there's ode, but that may have been patched on 4.70 unless that's just the injection method on to a backup created by the system. I have no experience with either. cfw = no though.

    Simply No unless you go the ODE (optical drive emulator) route.

    U need to remove motherboard off your console, install clip to Nor chip, assemble console back with flesher, read dump 3 or more times, compare them and validate to no mistakes, patch dump and load it to ps3. Then instal cfw and multiman(webman etc.)

    I think u need an esata station as well for the hdd. the ps3 won't boot up completely without an hdd, and the e3 switches take their place in the hdd bay.

    I don't using it. Simply removing E3 and installing back hdd when downloading cwf and multiman
