143w ago - Following up on his previous release, today PlayStation 3 developer judges has updated the Teensy++ 2.0 NOR flasher NORway for PS3 to version 0.5 with additional updates and their changes outlined below.

Download: NORway PS3 NOR Flasher for PS3 v0.5 / NORway PS3 NOR Flasher for PS3 v0.5 (Mirror) / NORway PS3 NOR Flasher for PS3 v0.6 Beta / NORway Latest Beta / norpatch.exe (v4.60.0) / norpatch.exe (v4.65.0) / norpatch.exe (v4.66.0) / norpatch.exe (v4.70.0) / GIT

NORway v0.5 Changelog:

  • Added block table for Samsung K8Q2815UQB. The programming modes "writeword" and "writewordubm" don't require manual chip/sector erase prior to writing anymore!
  • Bugfix: "NORway.py COMx release" didn't work. Now you can leave Teensy powered at all times and console will boot up correctly after issuing a "release" command
  • Bugfix: increased TRANSMIT_TIMEOUT for Teensy's serial device to 10000ms (required for OS X)
  • Bugfix: disabled DSR/DTR flow control (wasn't working reliably on OS X)
  • Bugfix: TRISTATE wasn't set correctly
  • Added additional verification when writing is done. Although each write command verifies each written sector/block, it happened that written bytes weren't persistent
  • Added "verify" command

NORway v0.6 Beta Changelog:

  • Changed programming modes "write", "writeword" and "writewordubm" to "vwrite", "vwriteword" and "vwritewordubm".
  • Added new programming modes that skip verification for single 4KB blocks: "write", "writeword" and "writewordubm".
  • Moved verification algorithm to Teensy.

Update: From littlebalup: Hi ladies and gents, As an alternative to WAYgui by Swizzy, here comes my personal simple programs, written in batch and compiled as exe, to easily launch and work with the well known NORway and NANDway python scripts by Judges.

Download: NANDway_launcher.zip / NORway_launcher.zip / WAY-launchers v2.01.zip / WAY-launchers v2.02.exe / WAY-launchers v2.03.exe / NORway_launcher.sh / NORway_launcher.sh (Fully Compatible Linux / Mac) / WAY-launchers-master.zip / GIT

Features:

  • Multi-lingual (English and french only for the moment, with auto-detection per windows language) If someones would like to translate to another languages, sources are available.
  • Teensy COM port auto-detection
  • Multi-dumps (I mean you can define a quantity of dumps to perform)
  • Binary dumps comparison after dumps (if multi-dumps) with log file.

Install note:

  • Simply paste the exe files into the same directory as NORway.py / NANDway.py
  • Execute

Update #2: Small update of the batch versions (now v1.9, same download links above).

New release v1.01 of the GUI:

  • Added Teensy programming feature: can load .hex file by clicking on the teensy picture.
  • Dump file extention changed: was "*.x.bin", now is *.bin" if only one dump and "*_x.bin if multi-dumps.

New version v2.00 of the GUI:

  • Removed embeded console due to problems with scripts output redirection.
  • Now scripts launched in a separate regular console prompt window.
  • "Save screen" and "Kill process" buttons removed as well. Instead, you can copy from console to save screen and use Ctrl+C to kill process if needed.

New version v2.01:

  • v2.01: Bug correction about Multi-dumps and binary checks. (Thanks to Joris 73 from LS)

WAY-launchers v2.02:

  • v2.02: Added compatibility with the latest USB serial drivers from PRJC: "Teensy USB Serial" driver now detected as well as the old one.

Here a new release of my GUI for NORway/NANway/SPIway: v2.02: Added compatibility with the latest USB serial drivers from PRJC. "Teensy USB Serial" driver now detected as well as the old one. Also means it is working well on Windows 8.1 now.

WAY-launchers v2.02 - GUI to run NORway, NANDway & SPIway scripts by Judges.

WAY-launchers v2.03:

  • v2.03: Correction of a minor bug concerning error level detection from python scripts.

ATTENTION: The use of this program is at your own risk! The author can not be held responsible for the consequences of its use.

Simple GUI, written in VB.net and batch, to easily launch and work with the well known NORway, NANDway and SPIway python scripts by Judges for PS3 and PS4 hardware flashing using Teensy++ 2.0.

ADDITIONAL FEATURES:

  • Teensy COM port auto-detection
  • Teensy programming (load .hex file by clicking on teensy picture)
  • Multiple dumps (you can define a quantity of dumps to perform)

Linux Edition

A "Linux Edition" of the "NORway Launcher" console version is now available. Available soon for "NANDway Launcher" as well.

All the features of the Windows batch version are there (teensy port auto-detection, multi-dumps, binary comparisons...)

Developped and tested on debian based system (rpi / raspbian).

Quick guide to run judges scripts with linux:

- Ensure "python" and "python-serial" packages are installed:

[Register or Login to view code]



  • Get the latest Judges' files from his GitHub repo: github.com/hjudges/NORway, then unzip files.
  • Program your Teensy with the NORway.hex file using the PRJC loader and instructions available there : pjrc.com/teensy/loader_linux.html
  • Plug or unplug/re-plug your programmed Teensy, then, just after, run:

[Register or Login to view code]

So, you should obtain something like that at the end:

[Register or Login to view code]

Where " ttyACM* " is your serial port, fully named " /dev/ttyACM* ". Note this port name.

  • Go to your NORway unziped folder then make the NORway.py executable:

[Register or Login to view code]


  • Now you can start to run Judges's script with:

[Register or Login to view code]

example of dump command:

[Register or Login to view code]

To use with my script:

  • Past the "NORway_launcher.sh" file to the same folder as the "NORway.py" file.
  • Make it executable:

[Register or Login to view code]



  • Run:

[Register or Login to view code]

enjoy

Just tested on Mac OS-X as well. It works (partially).. but you have to manually set serial port which is something like /dev/tty.usbmodem*

To find it: ls /dev/tty.usbmodem* once connected. Maybe some bugs. I'll work for a full Mac support as well (so, will be "Linux & Mac edition).

Linked above is a new beta script that should be fully compatible Linux/Mac.

Well ... whaddayaknow!? Teensy to the rescue again! I love the little board! And this is great news - keep up the good work!

PS: Keep your Teensy's for the PS4 (whenever it arrives) - I'm sure it will come in handy!

Lol I remember those.. am sure they will use better pasties for the strip job.. this time around.. (pun intended)

But i think, I'll just wait for the downgrade package install or something.. or maybe even a custom upgrade->downgrade method than soldering.. I don't have that steady hands for this fine soldering job.. it'll be a nightmare.. I know how i soldered the dvd9 mod to the ps2 back in the day..

There is a past-on work solution in progress. This way you do not need to solder and you can simply paste it on the motherboard.

According to judges it seems possible, as he stated "I've already managed to downgrade my OFW 3.61 to CFW 3.55."

Keep in mind the crazy install soldering required to do it though.

The Teensy (pjrc.com/teensy/) is a complete USB-based microcontoller development system, in a very small footprint, capable of implementing many types of projects. All programming is done via the USB port. No special programmer is needed, only a standard "Mini-B" USB cable and a PC or Macintosh with a USB port.
