198w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer uf6667 has Tweeted news announcing a new PS3 hardware flasher project called ProgSkeet produced by Oscar Dalvit.

Currently the official site ProgSkeet.com doesn't offer any details beyond the ProgSkeet PS3 Install Diagrams and ProgSkeet Multi-Console Install Diagrams, however, he did provide some pictures (below, with high-res HERE) of the ProgSkeet device and the ProgSkeet Drivers, ProgSkeet Flasher Software and ProgSkeet Flasher Software Update followed by some more updates in THIS ongoing Forum thread.

Based on them, ProgSkeet appears to utilize an Actel A3P125 IC (datasheet HERE) which is common among modchips due to its security, and offers enough address lines for at least 2 (if not more) NANDs with 16 general purpose lines and boasts 125,000 system gates with 133 maximum user I/O lines. It also offers JTAG pads, presumably used for programming the device.

Upon completion, ProgSkeet will allow users to downgrade and jailbreak their PS3 similar to the Infectus Mod along with backing up and reflashing the console's memory.

More details will be posted as they become available on the ProgSkeet project, with a video now posted below and a ProgSkeet Review for those interested.

Progskeet 1.1 is the best option but sorry you will not find it in stock around the world

You can try to find Progskeet 1.2 also but it is hard to find since the production stopped long time ago.

Alternatively you can use Teensy 2.0++ with NANDWay or NORWay application to downgrade your consoles.

Try using zadig to activate your ProgSkeet drivers.

ProgSkeet you connect usb to usb port on the PC, then how zadig, ProgSkeet that the driver is not detected, there is a check list of all device options, edit the name of the device that is not in the know in progskeet name, now it's up to you which one to use winskeet and enable drivers.

There are three options:

- WinUSB
- libusb0
- libusbK

May be useful, thank you
