Looking forward to see where this goes....
Thanks for the comments everyone. I already have an external switch board in the works which will be included as part of the kit. As for the USB part, it wouldn't be possible (yet anyway) to do since programming the NOR requires around 50 something points soldering. Leave it with me though as I have a few ideas to work on for now. I'm thinking Atmel or Actel for the cpld as I have a little bit of coding experience with them. I'll keep you all updated!
can't wait bro i wanna try this on my CECHH12 PS3
could you upload the picture sir. to see the mainboard thanks and more power!

wow, this seems to be very interesting!
I hope you'll find a simple and economic way to make it works solderless =)
Ok guys, just a quicky before I disappear for a few hours - first prototype going into production today. I'll post more pics later on
I'm nearly tempted to tell you hang on to my PS3 a bit longer to use as a test rig
That looks like an excellent solution for dual boot, great work Mushy!
great work, i'm sure the final product will be more refined. with "external switches" so people don't have to open up the console every time. its early days yet but maybe an all in one dual boot/downgrader too?
