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.

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

thanks for answering my stupid noob questions.

LOL , Soldering is a problem tho it looks really pretty when it is done, wishing I kept the teensy++ now but I kept the other usb - we wont mention names lol, shame I havent friends that solder they all turn to me for mad stuff like this, congratulations tho, I might wait until I goto college for 10 years to learn to solder (my soldering looks like welding pmsl)!

While this makes me glad I bought a Teensy++ 2.0 the thought of soldering 40+ wires makes me cringe. It's been way too many years since I've had to solder that many wires into a console, not since I put a DMS3+ into my V4 PS2 years ago.

Well ... whaddayaknow!? Teensy to the rescue again! I love the little board! And this is great news - keep up the good work!

PS: Keep your Teensy's for the PS4 (whenever it arrives) - I'm sure it will come in handy!

Lol I remember those.. am sure they will use better pasties for the strip job.. this time around.. (pun intended)

But i think, I'll just wait for the downgrade package install or something.. or maybe even a custom upgrade->downgrade method than soldering.. I don't have that steady hands for this fine soldering job.. it'll be a nightmare.. I know how i soldered the dvd9 mod to the ps2 back in the day..
