I have been a regular visitor of this website for some time now. Never having the want or need to mod my PS3, i never had the need to register. That has all changed recently. After about 12+ YLOD of death failures, each time reflowing and two blu ray lens failures, each time replacing (first time done by sony). My PS3 was on its last leg. Being that a bought the PS3 during launch ($700) and first lens replacement after warrenty ($150), I refused to give sony any more of my money for the simple fact that i knew a another failure was right around the corner. My current girlfriend has given me a new PS3 for Christmas. I have set my sights on my old PS3 that i kept bringing back to life as my new project/build.
My project PS3 specs are listed below:
Fat 80 gig PS3
Current OEM firmware: latest (4.31 i believe)
I have been wanting to downgrade my PS3 so I can utilize it for my proposed build (more info later i you are interested). I plan on using baileyscream's guide to do this. I have been tryin to find Progskeet 1.1 in order to downgrade. However as you all know, they are sold out everywhere. Will Progskeet 1.2 work for this application? Anyone have success with Progskeet 1.2 for this type of application? I already know there are some issues out there with Progskeet 1.2. Or can anyone recommend another flasher to do the trick?
Sorry for the lengthy post. Any help would be awesome. Thanks
broo progskeet 1.2 has no working "bitstream" but
has made a project to fix the 1.2 progskeet ..
the project was named progskeet phonix it's a board that needs to be solderd on some point on the progskeet 1.2 so u can turn it to 1.1 ..
only few lucky users reported that thier progskeet 1.2 works only on NAND chips ..
it's not tested yet wait till Andy aka underwurlde announce some info's about progskeet phonix boards..
there is InFeCtUs programmer but it's incredibly slow when it come to ps3's NANDs anw if u have any question feel free to ask . and tc
