    The solderless ProgSkeet will be released tomorrow, bringing dual NAND setup, and a 1gigabit NAND (allowing backups or dual boots). More info on that HERE.

    To quote:

    Attached is the new picture of PROGSKEET V1.1 L.E. in distribution right now to our resellers (we start shipping tomorrow).

    The new version of PROGSKEET has these small changes:

    1 - ZIF 50 PIN CONNECTOR INSTALLED ON THE BACK
    2 - 3.3V and 1.8V selection (1.8V nands like IPHONE are supported)

    Also during next days a new version of the PROGSKEET software will be release, the main target is add the DUAL NAND feature to PROGSKEET. We start to ship soon the samples of solderless tool including the NAND PCB to all our BETA TESTERS.

    For all the “old” 1.0 WHITE progskeet customers we attach here a DATA SHEET of the SOCKET ZIF 50 PIN used on PROGSKEET… is a common part that all can buy on www.digikey.com , www.farnell.com and other distributors. We are also offering this socket for a cheaper price to our distributors, you will find sure online when we star the distribution of the solderless tools. So all SOLDERLESS tools are compatible with WHITE 1.0 PROGSKEET version.

    We hope to show during the next week the first NOR CLIP tool 100% solderless, and also the NOR PCB a nice add on to allow the FULL DUAL NOR feature.

    The production of SOLDERLESS tools start end this week and it takes about 2 weeks to be done. We remember here the kits that will be available:

    ADAPTOR PCB: the board with 50 pin zif socket and 2 x 32 PIN zif socket. The kit include a 5 CM – 50 PIN flat cable
    NAND SOCKETS: The solderless socket to connect PROGSKEET to a NAND FLASH TSOP. The kit include a 20 CM – 32 PIN “special” flat cable
    NAND PCB: The 1GBIT nand flash with 32 PIN zif sockets. Necessary to enable DUAL NAND feature. The kit include a 3 CM – 32 PIN flat cable

    PROGSKEET main word is VERSATILE, customers will be able to use it on ALL kind of devices, and also will buy ONLY the things that are necessar !!

    BYE FOR NOW

      The board with 50 pin zif socket and 2 x 32 PIN zif socket. It will be nice if you post the exact url link where we can buy these for our white version.

      oh it will be available from distributors. I will buy the pins from them then.

      This is only for downgrading. So I'm assuming that a "Yes".

      Okay, I'm also sitting with a secondary waninkoko bricked PS3 - can anyone be specific about what is need to salvage this? The chip itself of course, but do we know what is needed for the solderless version - or are we still waiting for these?

      this is prob a dumb question but beings that this can dual boot can you do it to a console that has never had 3.55 firmware on it or will it just screw everything up
      ************* [ - Post Merged - ] *************
      yeah the day that 3.72 came out they had put up a video showing that this works on 3.72 also

      Progskeet is also available on Beeper's website see the below link and it includes the chip and the clip together.
      Buy Progskeet

      That beeper page looks a little fishy. I'll trust a direct distributor like modchipsdirect.com
