136w ago - Following up on their previous PS3 release, today Oscar Dalvit has announced that ProgSkeet v1.2 for the PlayStation 3 is incoming with the features outlined below.

To quote: Dear Customers, PROGSKEET V1.2 is in production, release: first week of October (maybe early)

Here some infos in preview:

1- Redesign of main board now more small and stable (4 layers)
2- Slave board with USB, LED, SWITCH (for memory banks selection)
3- FCC cable 15 pins that allow to connect externally the slave board
4- Bus SPI on FCC cable for future expansions
5- 100% support of WINSKEET
6- DLL OPEN library to allow integration in other alternative programs
7- 1 Mbit SPI FLASH memory on board

The package content:

  • 1x PROGSKEET V1.2 + SLAVE BOARD
  • 1x ADAPTOR PCB PROGSKEET

The main improve of the new PROGSKEET V1.2 solution will be the support of DUAL NOR / NAND on different consoles. NOR and NAND CLIPS are not anymore official supported, we decide to move on QSB BOARDS, more cheaper and sure more stable then CLIPS. Soon news also about these accessories.

More infos about specs of new WINSKEET and SOFTWARE will be posted soon.

Preorders of the first limited production are open! Contact us!

Update: ProgSkeet Black Tar Edition 1.2 - We are happy to present you the new PROGSKEET V1.2.

This new progskeet version introduce these changes:

1- Redesign of main board now more small and stable (4 layers)
2- Slave baord with USB, LED, SWITCH (for memory banks selection)
3- FCC cable 15 pins that allow to connect externally the slave board
4- Bus SPI on FCC cable for future expansions
5- 100% support of WINSKEET
6- DLL OPEN library to allow integration in other alternative programs

Finally progskeet team stop to supprot CLIP tools, too much expensive and with a really bad quality. The alternative will be nice QSB BOARDS NOR / NAND for different consoles that will be soon available.

The kit now works exactly like PROGSKEET V1.1 but soon new features will be added. More infos about new specs will be released on official Web site.

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
