• PS3 Hacks , 27.07.2011

    For those who ordered and are keeping tabs on ProgSkeet, they have released their diagrams, software and driver tools today.

    To quote from Flasher.exe readme:

    ProgSkeet Flasher (BETA 110726-a)
    ——————————-

    History:

    110726:
    Private flasher release. Only for reviewers. Does not support Flashing due to some difficulties with some NAND Flash devices.
    Note: Production went too fast, so I didn’t have enough time to do everything promised yet. It will all come on time. I am working on fixing this ASAP. Tomorrow we are thoroughly testing it to find any bugs that may be hidden. We cannot risk the customer flashing a wrong image and then blaming us for it.
    For now you have to specify the specific values taken from datasheets.
    This goes without saying: DO NOT LEAK.
    You can however tell people that you have the software.
    Please click “test shorts” prior to soldering to ensure you have a working ProgSkeet.

    110726-a:
    Added NAND Flashing. Be cautious when using. Not tested on every sort of flash yet.
    Removed “PageSize” and added “Raw” and “LargeBlock” checkboxes.

    110627:
    - Added NAND Flashing (confirmed working) with differential flash option (read sector before flashing, eventually saving some time)
    - Optimized NAND Dumping by a whole lot (28kB/s on average :D ~~~~~)
    - Fixed NOR dumping

    Note: if you get too high speed (more than 1035kB/s) during dump, it’s probably got an error and you should let me know about it.

    yours truly,

      looing foward to see how it goes , i was thinking of getting the teensy 2.0++ but so far i found nothink in the uk only in usa too much hassle getting it sent from there but i been looking at the progskeet now and also they are sold in france so it be much easyer and quicker getting it sent to me , looks like i better brush up on my solding skills

      does anyone know what size the wires are for connecting this?
      i'm hoping this isn't going to be as frustrating to fit as the psp chip was (solder 1 wire and another comes off) lol that was a fun week not! :-)

      good pic. i thought the pcb was much bigger than that. but i am glad its that size i should be able to squeeze that sideways next to the fan (i have a usb hub ontop of the dvd drive so wont go there in mine) and run a surface mount mini usb at the rear of the ps3.

      Yes you ll be able to downgrade using proskeet but you have to find a valid dump before.
      What does this means?

      but what is valid dump before means? do you need the dump before you upgraded your ps3?

      I would say that would be the safe option as then you could flash back your original dump if required?

      But I aint sure

      do you guys think we will ever be able to dual boot with a nand that points to the hard drive

      I second this.
      But i think doing that will be short the lifespan of the hard drive itself.
