thanks for the reply and it was your guide that i followed which is a great guide, i followed the prog 1.2 section for nands but i guess as you said above that the guide doesnt fully support it.
i have been doing one nand and only one nand but i alos thried the other nand, and i also tried the nands of another phat ps3 and all the same results, nothing.
but what puzzles me is when i plug in the slave board windows automatically says the device has malfunctioned with out the progskeet even plugged in so could it be the slave board not communicating well? and when i test for shorts its perfectly fine like theres nothing wrong but as soon as i plug the y Adapter in, it says its shorted.
i know im putting alot of info its just theres aot i did to try to make it work but nothing worked, nothing.
so one last thing which i somehow forgot to mention in the original post, it is when i did the infectus thing to program it the progskeet the device info button reported this
ActID = 02a121cf
ExpID = 03a121cf

the FF's is what concerned me so is it the progskeet thats F'ing up??
thanks in advance
