Sponsored Links
179w 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

The E3 flasher was just built up hype for nothing really. I'm glad there is finally a device that supports dual-booting. I still don't understand why the E3 team decided to cancel the dual boot function in the first place.

this will make things nice, quick and relatively pain free

ProgSkeet Flasher

Recent Changes and History:

  • Added predefined and user presets
  • Fixed ability to select invalid ranges
  • Added a file patcher
  • Flasher: Added support for canceling running operations
  • Flasher: Added USB device reset
  • Flasher: Added support for erasing as a stand-alone operation
  • Flasher: Added cycle period selection, should help with longer cables
  • Flasher: Added abort on error option
  • Flasher: Reodered operations, full read, full erase, full write
  • Flasher: Fixed bug with unreliable GPIO operation
  • NOR: Added new write mode "Dual word program"
  • NOR: Added display of total flash size
  • NOR: Fixed flashing of the second half of Samsung K8Q2815UQB and likely other dual chip NORs
  • NOR: Added erase block region configuration
  • NOR: Added selection of number of bytes for buffered write
  • NOR: Added support for Spansion S29GL128N90TFIR2
  • NAND: Made custom ranges work
  • NAND: Added Dual-NAND reading. Reads a block from two NANDs simultaneously, thereby doubling the speed.

Notes:

  • Differential flash, if you haven't noticed yet, will skip unnecessary writes (compares data on chip vs data in file)
  • The Ready triggered timing requires you to bridge the RDY and the GP4 pins together (still needs to be connected to the target RDY)

yours truly,

The clips are designed to fit on TSOP-56 flashes regardless whether flash is installed in 360, PS3 or any other device.

360 clip? On a PS3?
