September 26, 2011 // 6:26 pm - 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:

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 , 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 !!

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.

Hi jensen76,

Many thanks for your reply, I did what you said and I was finally able to install the driver, but when I tested for shorts it said there were shorts found. I have attached a screenshot to let you see what it said.

I would really appreciate it if you could talk me through this as I don't want to do anything wrong. I was wondering what the next step would be now?

I look forward to your reply.

Ok it is easy to say that the one that you have has had some problems with writing to chips both nor and nand chips. I have two of them and have never gotten them to work when it comes to writing to the chips, it does read both but not write. I have tried both nor and nand chips and cant get it to write.

Ok so now remember this that if you try it and it doesn't work you will have a ps3 that will not work (brick) the reason for this is that it doesn't write the files that is needed. You will have to flash the newest bitstream to the progskeet. Thanks and if you need help let me know. Like i said i have two 1.2s and still use my two 1.1s. thanks

I have just recently got the Progskeet v1.2 (Black Tar Edition) and I have managed to install the driver for the Injectus no problem, but when I try and install the driver for the Progskeet I get the message "Unknown USB Device".

I have seen by looking the net a lot of people are having this problem. I was wondering if somebody would be kind enough to do walk through for me please as I am new to the Progskeet and would greatly appreciate some guidance.

P.S. I am just wondering if the problem might be that I am running Windows 7 64 Bit on an Intel machine, as I see that the 64 Bit driver is in a folder marked AMD and doesn't seem to mention Intel. I just thought I'd mention that just in case.

Many thanks for any help!

I seem them out And they seem like they would work. However the progskeet 1.2 are having a lot of problems with writing to ps3s. I would wait into they get it figured out with a bitstream update. They can read the ps3 fine but can't write to it. Thanks
