• Remember all those RSOD’s that were happening back in the early days of CFW, now progskeet as we all know supports fixing issues such as NAND/NOR downgrading, etc. Now progskeet has a gotten a little bit more cooler with the release of this update allowing those of you unfortunate ones with the RSOD(Red Screen Of Death) to come back to life and join in on the scene that’s right developer uf6667 has done just that. Here is a quote:

    Today uf6667 offers a nice update of the application ProgSkeet. This update as you can see from the changelog below is well worth it, because it could bring some RSOD PS3′s back to life, it will detect and map the bad sectors in the NOR flash, which is the main cause of this horrible start on the PS3. The application and drivers are compatible only with Windows compatibility for Linux and Mac will be coming up with a tutorial.

    Changelog:

    110811:

    NOR: Complete rewrite of the driver of NOR, NAND one of was not changed.

    NOR: Optimization of the method of Write-To-Buffer Programming (addition of a timeout). Note: All models do not support this optimization. Please consult the data sheet if you have problems.

    NOR: Optimization of erasing sector (addition of a timeout) ⋅

    NOR: Checking forced flash and differential.

    NOR: Unable to enter values ​​now, thank you RAIDEN (if only a few people read …).

    Note: Some models of NOR have bad sectors (usually only a few bytes, but enough to prevent the operation of the entire system). They will be reported in C: ProgSkeet.log If you have a template with this problem (for example, I heard that this problem occurs when a RSOD the PS3) you should be able sectors move somewhere or replace NOR flash. 110 811-A:

    NOR: Fixed bug in timeout for deletion / programming. It has also been improved to 3.5 seconds per line per sector.

    110 811-B:

    NOR: Add a message waiting when erasing a sector.

    110 811-C:

    Improved speed flashing.

    110 811-D:

    Addition of “test” for flashing. 5 trials are currently scheduled.

      Well the RSoD is usually some type of flash issue. I would expect a hardware flasher to fix it.

      There are ways to fix that. Ask around in our IRC or use Google, or the search button here. People have regained BD playback.

      I would try using DRLTools it is a tool that works with the PS3 to regain blu-ray playback. You will need to know the last newest blu-ray movie that was working on the ps3 and with this tool can generate a file that can regain your movie playback. It worked for me. Hope it helps

      Can't post a link to the website but PM me for the website and I'll do my best to help ya.

      So I think this can be used to downgrade your PS3 firmware too?
