    Alright so Im looking into the ps3 sceen and all that fun stuff. I know ill need a e3 and this will be a decent investment for me as I know more then one of my friends will use it aswell. However watching the installation vids linked on their site I noticed they use something called a "PS Downgrade dongle". Where would one get this if this is even still needed?

    it depends on what FW is installed on the Ps3

    if you are over 3.56 then e3 is needed

    The ps3 ill be using is on 4.1 which the e3 site said it can downgrade. What i would like to know is the ps downgrader still needed or do i need to find one online or make one?

    then the e3 Flasher is NEEDED

    also

    if the PS3 is BRAND new and came with a FW OVER 3.55, then FW 3.55(or under) CAN NOT RUN ON THAT PS3
