news announcing a new PS3 hardware flasher project called ProgSkeet.
Currently the official site ProgSkeet.com doesn't offer any details beyond the ProgSkeet PS3 Install Diagrams
and ProgSkeet Multi-Console Install Diagrams
, however, he did provide some pictures (below, with high-res HERE
) of the ProgSkeet device and the ProgSkeet Drivers
, ProgSkeet Flasher Software
and ProgSkeet Flasher Software Update
followed by some more updates in THIS
ongoing Forum thread.
Based on them, ProgSkeet appears to utilize an Actel A3P125 IC (datasheet [Register or Login to view links]
) which is common among modchips due to its security, and offers enough address lines for at least 2 (if not more) NANDs with 16 general purpose lines and boasts 125,000 system gates with 133 maximum user I/O lines. It also offers JTAG pads, presumably used for programming the device.
Upon completion, ProgSkeet will allow users to downgrade and jailbreak their PS3 similar to the Infectus Mod
along with backing up and reflashing the console's memory.
More details will be posted as they become available on the ProgSkeet project, with a video now posted below and a ProgSkeet Review
for those interested.
