    So is it better for me to use a E3 flasher than the 3k3y flash chip ? I have been reading up on this for a while but i feel like i should get it confirmed before i trow money on this.
    I'm on the FW 4.21 and currently got a cech-2504B model. I belive it is from 2010, got it for free so i'm not sure.
    It says in the systeminfo that it got 256gb/298gb memory, but i guess that it over all got 350 gb as 300 isnt an option.

    And is the original e3 flasher the best choice ? http://www.modnet.no/product_info.php?cPath=200_138_148&products_id=4843
    As i heard that it was designed for the chinese ps3 that should be slightly different in the design.

    There's no "chinese" PS3.
    Nor is there a difference in design.
    Only major differences are the NAND/NOR consoles on Phatties (NAND consoles are launch models) and Slims.

    I'd get an E3 if you don't care about PSN.
    Get a 3Key if you want PSN access and online play.

    3Key should automatically extract the keys or it's not longer needed.
    I have no clue to be honest, I'm a noob at PS3 hacking ;p
    Only know the basics.

    But if you want PSN acces, get a 3Key.

    No problem.

    It's simple.
    If you want PSN access, get a 3Key.
    If you don't care about PSN, get an E3 flasher.

    Oh, i understand that. The problem now is that i can't find any information about 3key for ps3 slim. Only that it is working on my version currently as far as i understand.

    Aye aye.

    Humm...
    Well I'm not sure about the 3Key itself but I've read that you no longer need to dump your BD drive key..
    I'm sorry that I'm unable to help you with that tho, seeing that I'm a 360 hacker instead of a PS3 hacker ;p
