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.

Update: From littlebalup: Hi ladies and gents, As an alternative to WAYgui by Swizzy, here comes my personal simple programs, written in batch and compiled as exe, to easily launch and work with the well known NORway and NANDway python scripts by Judges.

Features:

  • Multi-lingual (English and french only for the moment, with auto-detection per windows language) If someones would like to translate to another languages, sources are available.
  • Teensy COM port auto-detection
  • Multi-dumps (I mean you can define a quantity of dumps to perform)
  • Binary dumps comparison after dumps (if multi-dumps) with log file.

Install note:

  • Simply paste the exe files into the same directory as NORway.py / NANDway.py
  • Execute

Update #2: Small update of the batch versions (now v1.9, same download links above).

New release v1.01 of the GUI:

  • Added Teensy programming feature: can load .hex file by clicking on the teensy picture.

New version v2.00 of the GUI:

  • Removed embeded console due to problems with scripts output redirection.
  • Now scripts launched in a separate regular console prompt window.

WAY-launchers v2.02:

Here a new release of my GUI for NORway/NANway/SPIway: v2.02: Added compatibility with the latest USB serial drivers from PRJC. "Teensy USB Serial" driver now detected as well as the old one. Also means it is working well on Windows 8.1 now.

Below is a roughly translated guide from calimba on how to do a PS3 NOR dump with a Teensy 2.0++ device: demonhades.org/foro/viewtopic.php?f=224&t=4892#p31010. I have also added the NORway v0.2 for PS3 update to the first post.

Community well this is my first tutorial I hope you understand me. I'll be putting images to be more clear, then began:

Requirements:

  • Teensy 2.0 + +
  • Norway 0.1
  • Obviously a PC

1. Unzip the Norway where we want and install the serial_install.exe that comes inside the zip then download it and install it.

Python 2.7.2 ([Register or Login to view links])
pyserial 2.5 ([Register or Login to view links])

2. Program with the Teensy hex that is inside the folder "default" of Norway

s3nint3!s3nint3!
3. Solder to play the 3 because of the review board is different from the diagram, here are a few. I used this:

s3nint3!
And these are the points of the teensy:

s3nint3!
4. Ya all welded to the plate and console ps3 off with the red LED and connect the usb to pc teensy then went into the Device Manager and look for Ports (COM & LPT) as you can see the next image to I really teensy detected in COM3

s3nint3!
5. Open the windows command line CMD and go as far as Norway and unpack the NORway.py write in my case COM3

s3nint3!
6. Then ignition internal green LED console and type in CMD flash.bin NORway.py COM3 dump and start making the dump, as you'll see in the image does not take much 2 minutes 38 seconds

s3nint3!
s3nint3!
7. Last step. After the dump CMD wrote in COM3 NORway.py NOR release to reset and turn off the console and disconnect the teensy and ready and we have the dump of the NOR

s3nint3!
PS: I'm not very good with photocase this
PD2: I did everything in windows 7 x64

I want to thank Demonhades, Jaicrab rather the entire mark HadesTeam also thank the Judges and Norway

Couldn't we use this to flash a DEBUG FW onto Retail PS3's?

Also does this mean we can modify the QA Flag on new FW's?

Sorry for the newby questions.

That is a lot of soldering, but at least it is all on points or pads so it shouldn't be that hard for someone with a moderate amount of experience. At least you don't have to solder onto any of the traces directly. I had to do that to fix my custom fight stick (toodles based stick for 360/PS3/PC) for MvC3 and it was a bitch trying to get a wire to stick to a trace the size of a human hair.
