Either God or Touching Virus. The latter may be more contactable.

To my knowledge he's not offering any PS3 related services. He has an ad in the console modding services thread so I suppose you could pm him to ask, but as before, I'm quite certain he's not doing ps3 work at the moment.

Nobody else here offers PS3 soldering/nand services either as it's a complete time sink. What are you trying to do?

Your best bet would be buying one thats already running cfw, the soldering involved in fitting an E3 is expert level & I'm not sure you'll get it done for any sane price.

There wasn't any soldering involved when I fit my E3 flasher, just a clip you had to tape onto one of the chips on the motherboard. Was a pain in the ass to figure it all out as a beginner though, even with guides.

I still have my e3 flasher in its box, I went to try the downgrade months ago, realized I didnt have the correct screwdriver to open the ps3, and I haven't touched it since !!

I must try it soon

To my knowledge though, not all sku's can be used with the clip. Also from personal experience with mod chips etc, quick fit clips are more trouble than they're worth. I wouldn't fancy writing to a nand with one personally

Ahh, I think you're right. It is a pain to use, had to reopen the PS3 and tape it down at least 3-4 different times until it would work properly.
