July 13, 2011 // 8:31 pm - 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 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.

are you using liquid or paste flux? liquid is better if you apply with a brush, paste is kind of hard to work with, you can accidentally apply too much and the solder won't stick

have you the latest bitstream on it and a stable powersupply for 3.3V?

Have you a Solderless Clip or have you soldering?

Most problems exist with contacts not connected or short circuits.

if you use solderless clips, check the fit on the chip. On some boards you must make some changes to the clip, because usually a capacitor or resistance to 100% prevents sitting on the chip.

Hope can help

I have just purchased Progskeet v1.21 with the Nand and Nor clip. Problem is I cant seem to find a decent tutorial anywhere, so can anyone give me one?

I can piece together how to do it from other tutorials, but it would be nice to have a full tutorial for this model of flasher.

Also from what I can find, theres new patches that allow you to go go straight to the latest firmware, without downgrading, is this true?

If so does that mean cfw can be installed on all ps3s, regardless of model or minimum software? or is it still only for downgradable models?
