Progskeet's diagrams aren't that great either. The newer NOR model diagrams are crystal clear while older NAND you can't even make out!
I've only looked at the official diagrams and I'm not sure if someone has made better ones.
If I had a flashing device I'd let you borrow it, but I don't as I'm not risking my $600 toy for any reason be it hardware or software. OFW 4 life! :P
I gave up on Progskeet and similar stuff, there is no "clear" documentation as you mentioned, and even the small videos around are not very informative. So If I get the Progskeet and all, the most probable thing is that I would be wasting my time, money and dedication.
The following is a bit off-topic but, I think I'm just gonna make something useful with my CECHE01 (NAND) PS3, since I have a CECH-2501A (NOR) PS3 on OFW 4.11.
I will most probably sell it in parts (BD-Drive, Card Reader module, Power Supply, etc...) since all of them are in good working conditions, the only messed part is the software in it. Then with what I get from it I will buy "another" CECHE01 to continue my research. Yeah I know, the ideal thing would be not messing with DEX-To-CEX again until it has been confirmed, but I just want to complete my guide so other people don't brick in the process.
(If anyone is interested in CECHE01 PS3 parts please, send me a PM with specific information of model, offers, etc, before I put them on eBay)
I will be around even if I don't have a "hacked" PS3 to do testing for the moment, but I will continue to give support in any way I can
Thanks to everyone for your kind comments, and I'm really happy that my guide have been a success (at least going from CEX-To-DEX).
As soon as I get a working NAND console again I will finish the DEX-To-CEX guide, if someone else doesn't work on one before.
Take care everyone!
