ProgSkeet Flasher

Recent Changes and History:

111004:

  • New Qt GUI implemented

  • 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:

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

are you using liquid or paste flux? liquid is better if you apply with a brush, paste is kind of hard to work with, you can accidentally apply too much and the solder won't stick

Hi,

have you the latest bitstream on it and a stable powersupply for 3.3V?

Have you a Solderless Clip or have you soldering?

Most problems exist with contacts not connected or short circuits.

if you use solderless clips, check the fit on the chip. On some boards you must make some changes to the clip, because usually a capacitor or resistance to 100% prevents sitting on the chip.

Hope can help

I have just purchased Progskeet v1.21 with the Nand and Nor clip. Problem is I cant seem to find a decent tutorial anywhere, so can anyone give me one?

I can piece together how to do it from other tutorials, but it would be nice to have a full tutorial for this model of flasher.

Also from what I can find, theres new patches that allow you to go go straight to the latest firmware, without downgrading, is this true?

If so does that mean cfw can be installed on all ps3s, regardless of model or minimum software? or is it still only for downgradable models?
