Here is another update from No_One
on the hardware for this project which should allow developers to further examine the PS3 NOR flash in search of new exploits: psx-scene.com/forums/content/pnm-1230/
Anonymous hacker releases explanations of DUAL NOR hardware.
A hardware has been designed. Project codename: PNM (PS3 NOR Manager). It meets the following requirements:
- copy/dump/update NOR FLASH
- static switch and dynamic switch between 2 NOR FLASH (sockets)
- realtime spying the NOR activities
A PDF with all the explanations, schematics and so on will be provided very soon for release ! ...this is one of the page extracted from the PDF that will be released. This is a part of the PNM schematics:
I believe knowledge and information wants to be free. This is why I consider that this project is open-hardware and will be open-source !
Learn what you can and help contribute to making the PS3 scene a better place. Released by No_One.
PS: PNM could lead to 3.6x+ key decryption/CFW, but also to a TRUE dual firmware management
PPS: No other hardware (Infectus...) will be capable to handle what PNM is capable to do...

via DemonHades (demonhades.org/foro/viewtopic.php?t=4853#p30499) shared a pic of another PCB with Dual NAND support allowing users to install both PS3 OFW and CFW on a single console, stating (roughly translated) that there are integrated sockets on the "two side plates" that are to be used by the Infectus modchip–for this dual-NAND to work.
