NORway v0.5 Changelog:

  • Added block table for Samsung K8Q2815UQB. The programming modes "writeword" and "writewordubm" don't require manual chip/sector erase prior to writing anymore!
  • Bugfix: "NORway.py COMx release" didn't work. Now you can leave Teensy powered at all times and console will boot up correctly after issuing a "release" command
  • Bugfix: increased TRANSMIT_TIMEOUT for Teensy's serial device to 10000ms (required for OS X)
  • Bugfix: disabled DSR/DTR flow control (wasn't working reliably on OS X)
  • Bugfix: TRISTATE wasn't set correctly
  • Added additional verification when writing is done. Although each write command verifies each written sector/block, it happened that written bytes weren't persistent
  • Added "verify" command

NORway v0.6 Beta Changelog:

  • Changed programming modes "write", "writeword" and "writewordubm" to "vwrite", "vwriteword" and "vwritewordubm".
  • Added new programming modes that skip verification for single 4KB blocks: "write", "writeword" and "writewordubm".
  • Moved verification algorithm to Teensy.

Just finished NORway v0.4 beta 10. Implemented CrackMyDay's excellent bulk writing method, which reduces programming time for "writeword" mode from 60mins to less than 10mins. "writewordubm" mode also doubled its speed (

Hi guys!

Thanks for this great tutorial, I try dump my flash on a 3.56v1 FAT Ps3 (the motherboard is the same in this post) but I'm not sure if the dump are correctly dumped. Who I can check it? I would not try to flash it and finally kill the Ps3

Sorry for my bad English, and thanks for the help.
