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.

  • 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: New version of NORPatch available from judges: Norpatch v4.60.0

  • Added OFW 4.60 recognition

Update #3: New version of NORPatch available from judges: Norpatch v4.65.0

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.

Nice, So I can play all the latest games and on PSN whilst 3.66 OFW (Or the newest FW), and after a month or so I can downgrade to 3.55 CFW.

Both Sony and Hackers are winners.

Keep in mind the crazy install soldering required to do it though.

thanks for answering my stupid noob questions.
