191w ago - As a follow-up to the ProgSkeet PS3 Solderless and Dual NAND Kit Tools demo, today the ProgSkeet Team have announced news of a ProgSkeet v1.1 Crystal Blue Edition for the PlayStation 3 that will begin shipping tomorrow.

To quote: Attached is the new picture of PROGSKEET V1.1 L.E. in distribution right now to our resellers (we start shipping tomorrow).

The new version of PROGSKEET has these small changes:

1 - ZIF 50 PIN CONNECTOR INSTALLED ON THE BACK
2 - 3.3V and 1.8V selection (1.8V nands like IPHONE are supported)

Also during next days a new version of the PROGSKEET software will be release, the main target is add the DUAL NAND feature to PROGSKEET. We start to ship soon the samples of solderless tool including the NAND PCB to all our BETA TESTERS.

For all the “old” 1.0 WHITE progskeet customers we attach here a DATA SHEET of the SOCKET ZIF 50 PIN used on PROGSKEET… is a common part that all can buy on www.digikey.com , www.farnell.com and other distributors. We are also offering this socket for a cheaper price to our distributors, you will find sure online when we star the distribution of the solderless tools. So all SOLDERLESS tools are compatible with WHITE 1.0 PROGSKEET version.

We hope to show during the next week the first NOR CLIP tool 100% solderless, and also the NOR PCB a nice add on to allow the FULL DUAL NOR feature.

The production of SOLDERLESS tools start end this week and it takes about 2 weeks to be done. We remember here the kits that will be available:

  • ADAPTOR PCB: the board with 50 pin zif socket and 2 x 32 PIN zif socket. The kit include a 5 CM – 50 PIN flat cable
  • NAND SOCKETS: The solderless socket to connect PROGSKEET to a NAND FLASH TSOP. The kit include a 20 CM – 32 PIN “special” flat cable
  • NAND PCB: The 1GBIT nand flash with 32 PIN zif sockets. Necessary to enable DUAL NAND feature. The kit include a 3 CM – 32 PIN flat cable

PROGSKEET main word is VERSATILE, customers will be able to use it on ALL kind of devices, and also will buy ONLY the things that are necessar !!

BYE FOR NOW

ProgSkeet 1.2 Bitstream 2013-03-30 by uf6668 is attached below, which fixes NOR issues with the following changes:

The long awaited fix for Progskeet 1.2 is finally here, uf6667 confirms this should fix the write issues people were getting with 1.2.

Download: ProgSkeet_12_130330_1909.dat / ProgSkeet_12_130330_1909[1].dat (Mirror) / ProgSkeet_12_130401_1824.rar‎ / ProgSkeet_12_120402_1730.rar‎

  • Dual boot using a switch (led on = secondary nand/nor, led off = primary nand/nor).
  • Supports both solderless nand and nor together. This should fix the write issues people were getting with 1.2.

ProgSkeet 1.2/1.21 BITSTREAM_12_130401_1824 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?947-Progskeet-1-2-1-21-bitstream-Mar-30-2013&p=2850#post2850) is the second progskeet v1.2 fix NOR bitstream.

ProgSkeet 1.2/1.21 BITSTREAM_12_120402_1730 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?947-Progskeet-1-2-1-21-bitstream-Mar-30-2013&p=2850#post2850) is another updated bitstream, again to fix the NOR read / write issues on the 1.2 / 1.21 progskeet.

ProgSkeet_12_130402_1730.dat
+ Added metastability to the DQ ports to filter out noise and glitches

ProgSkeet_12_130401_2010.dat
+ Reduced timeout from 1.3ms down to 320ns per word

ProgSkeet_12_130401_1824.dat
+ Added timeout for reads/writes (1ms), no more blocking
+ Fixed bug where it would read gpio from data pins rather than from gpio pins

ProgSkeet_12_130330_1909.dat
+ Increased metastability of USB (should no longer disconnect)
+ Restored Samsung Q compatibility that was caused by dualboot pin allocation

servo386 It's very hard to do. If you are not not really good at soldering I wouldn't attempt it. A few guys here offer a downgrade service it may be your best bet to look into that.

In general, how difficult is to pull of one of these ProgSkeet mods? Specifically to one of the old CECH0A launch models? I am familiar with soldering but I'm not sure I would say I'm good at it. This for experienced circuit boarders? I've heard of people sucessfully hacking CECH0A's but I don't if they had to downgrade their FW's beforehand. Anyone have any experience with this particular circumstance?

You'll need to solder to the pins of the two NANDs. Here are the NAND pinouts for the V1.2.

The 3rd pic is for the older one but its bigger so you can see what each pin is.

How did you check and see if the nor dump is good? Post up the nor dump and I will take a look at it. Post it to a file sharing site. Thanks

Also what happens if you write your nor dump back to it without patching it.

Hello i have tried to downgrade a ps3 slim cech2004a with nor samsung k8q2815uqb-pi4b. i use the clip and turn on the ps3 for read option. i have made the cfi dump and it's good the dump of nor and it's good too, so i have made the patch for rewrite the nor... flash it (using winskeet and the write option is: single word and static timing).

after finish and verify the file i make a new dump of the nor, and it was identical to the one i have flash.

turn on the ps3 and boom ylod... Any idea? thx
