WinSkeet 4000 Rev 111002 for ProgSkeet on PS3 is Now Available
Following up on the QT Flasher for PS3 Test and Localized Versions for the ProgSkeet device, today PlayStation 3 developers uf6667, ago and bmx have made available the Winskeet40000 Rev 111002 software platform for Windows following by official Linux / Windows versions from http://twitter.com/#!/uf6667/status/121297431014027267.
To quote: GlitchSkeet: is another bitstream written specifically for the ProgSkeet flasher, which will allow it to operate as a Glitcher like the many Glitch-Chips out there now that are used to perform the Reset Glitch Hack on the XBox 360 console.
The GlitchSkeet Bitstream currently have support for only the "Trinity/Slim" XBox 360 board model, It may need some more tweaking as well as adding support for other XBox 360 board models in later releases as time allows.
But anyway, all Skeeters/ProgSkeet owners have the right to test this Bitstream as it is in its current state.
Compatibility: This Bitstream is compatible with ProgSkeet v1.1 Crystal Blue only, ProgSkeet v1.0 Crystal White won't work.
Preparation: Short R12 and R9, Open R11 and R10
GP5 = I2C_SCL
GP6 = I2C_SDA
Adr0 = CPU_RST (you must add a Capacitor of 220pf/230pf/270pf between Adr0 & Ground)
Adr2 = POST_OUT1
Adr4 = DEBUG PIN / LED
N.B: the Injectus Jtag USB programmer is needed in order to update ProgSkeet with this Bitstream.
Credits to uf6667, Ago, bmx, nice69 and to all ProgSkeet Team members and testers.
It is my understanding that you CAN downgrade on newer firmwares, but it requires this flasher.
Someone reported before that a v3.70 or 3.71 was downgraded using a hardware flasher. That's why you see these new v3.55 firmwares with the syscon patched, so they will run even if the ps3 had a newer firmware installed before.
I haven't looked into it since I'm already on v3.55, but that is what I thought when I read some of the previous news articles few weeks ago?
