November 20, 2011 // 8:31 pm - Today PS3 developer uf6667 Tweeted that he has updated Winskeet to version 111120 stating that 110819 is now officially obsolete (NAND works, also using WinUSB now) alongside iSkeet and YASkeet updates with details below.

Download: Winskeet Update v111120 for PS3 / iSkeet v20111120 / YASkeet v20111120‎

Changelogs:

New WinSkeet - 110819 is now officially obsolete (NAND works, also using WinUSB now)

#ProgSkeet: New iSkeet
#ProgSkeet: New YASkeet
#ProgSkeet: Complete solderless NAND dualboot POC works, no more cutting traces!

ProgSkeet Flasher

Recent Changes and History:

111004:

  • New Qt GUI implemented
  • Linux and MacOS X support
  • 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.

11xxxx:

  • Flasher: New buffer handling.
  • NOR: Added new timing options. Static timing will be configurable later.
  • NOR: Added preset for Samsung K8P2716UZC-QI4D

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,

uf6667

I did not intend for my post to sound so blunt - I really would like to know what other features end-users would like to see.

Just looked at who posted it on twitter as well - surely not uberfry!

Still, like the Infectus this will definitely require more than an amateur to solder in heh... it's not like the previous round of "plug and play" USB JailBreak or Downgrade devices.

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

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...
