It's been almost a year since the PS3 was blown wide open with PSGroove and jailbreak days with the likes of PSJailbreak, Teensy++, TI-84 calculators and many more. Since than, the scene has been a little quiet with a few advances here and there. One of the hottest and most affordable jailbreak dongles at the time was the E3Card. After Sony had released new firmwares that blocked the use of dongles, the E3 Team has been quiet.

Recently, there have been advances in the mod scene and talks of downgrading from v3.70 Official Firmware. ProgSkeet [] is supposed to be able to flash the NANDs and NORs of many PS3 consoles right out of the box. Of course, when there is a new product, teams and manufacturers jump on the bandwagon.

Today, I received a email from the E3 Team which they have announced that they will be releasing the E3 Flasher. E3DIY Team did not give me much information but from the information that was provided, it seems that it is suppose to do the same as what ProgSkeet does. I guess we'll have to wait and see.
