Video: ProgSkeet PS3 Solderless and Dual NAND Kit Tools Demo


Sponsored Links
183w ago - This weekend the ProgSkeet Team has made available a video demonstrating the ProgSkeet PS3 Solderless and Dual NAND Kit Tools alongside details below.

To quote: We are happy to introduce you the SOLDERLESS KITS for our ProgSkeet device!

The main word is "BE FLEXIBLE" as ProgSkeet project will be the BEST TOOLKIT for the NAND and NOR flashing!!! We present today the NAND TOOL KITS, in few days we will be ready also with NOR TOOL KITS!!! Stay Tuned

1 - PROGSKEET is 100% PIN to PIN compatible with the SOCKET tool sold from this site http://www.360-clip.com

Just connect the ProgSkeet 32 pin special flat cable. (please note that this version don't support programming or reading with out the device is powered on. A new version will be released with the VCC pad to manage NANDS with a self power provided from PROGSKEET) 360-clip.com and also us we will offer this socket in a package together with the 20 cm 32 PIN flat cable.

2 - ADAPTOR PCB: This pcb is an adaptor from 50PIN ZIF PROGSKEET CONNECTOR (necessary for the coming "NOR SOCKET" solderless tools) to 2 x 32 PIN ZIF connector. With this adaptor progskeet is able to manage 2 NANDS on the DEVICE and also extra 2x SECONDARY NANDS (for dual nand feature). The kit include the 50 pin flat cable from PROGSKEET to ADAPTOR PCB.

3 - NAND PCB: This "optional" pcb has a 1Gbit NAND flash on board. Progkseet is able to use it like a backup nand or switch this nand and use it instead the NAND on the board of the device. The feature called "DUAL NAND" allow to support different NANDs ONLINE and test firmwares in a easy fast way. The software will be ready soon to support this feature, user can also attach a switch to progskeet to allow a fast selection of the NANDs without using the PC tool.

Progskeet support max 2 x NAND PCB on each ADAPTOR PCB, the kit include a 32 PIN 3CM flat cable (from NAND PCB to NAND SOCKET)

You can see a FULL PROGSKEET KIT SAMPLE where is clear how is the complete kit with 2x NANDS PCB and 2x NANDS SOCKETS (on the picture miss one socket sorry J ) but I think the concept is clear.

The big advantage of PROGSKEET is that can work on ANY CONSOLE / DEVICE, is study to be MODULAR and so is MUCH CHEAPER then any other solution that is specific addressed to a device.

The nice special FLAT CABLES are also easy to be fitted inside the device without bit problems, and also the KIT is removable in few minutes and is not PERMANENT.

We remember that PROGSKEET is an OPEN PROJECT study to be used in many kind of devices CONSOLES, SATELLITE, IPHONES, PENDRIVERS etc etc. "PROGSKEET NOTHING MORE THAN A GOOD NAND / NOR PROGRAMMER".

We will send tomorrow more infos and pictures regarding PROGSKEET V1.1 "CRYSTAL BLUE LIMITED EDITION" in production in these days and available in the market soon!

Nice news also about the PROGSKEET software, that now support new nice features.

BYE FOR NOW

Yay! Would be nice to have all the features Infectus had, but better. Actually having documented information on error codes for debugging etc would be a start. What's the point in having them when noone has a clue what they mean?

NAND flasher is a deffo... maybe they could support lots of types of flash, maybe then it could be 'universal'. Also better design of the solder pads as they tend to fall off after being soldered 500+ times.

Just a few ideas like

If you 'only' want to read and write nand/nor dumps there are a lot simpler & cheaper solutions than this...

Indeed, the hardware itself isn't anything special but the exciting part will be seeing what they do feature-wise on the software side.

I was just going to mention infectus... I look forward to seeing this. My only hope is that the devs don't disappear after 12 months and leave everyone in the lurch again...

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 ProgSkeet.com 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.
