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

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.
