ProgSkeet PS3 Hardware Flasher Project is Announced

180w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer uf6667 has [Register or Login to view links] news announcing a new PS3 hardware flasher project called ProgSkeet produced by Oscar Dalvit.

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.

On the website it says you can use 1 hard drive but you'll need to format it and update the PS3 every time you change the FW. I don't think you'll lose any saved data though.

It wouldn't be properly functional without 2 drives. You'd lose all your saved games every time; more than just annoying!

The E3 allows Dual booting with 1 hard drive, you just need to format it every time you switch firmwares, which is kinda annoying.

I'd say must users like you would incline to the solution customized to PS3 with added bonus of dual boot. Sadly - the hard drives would still need to be swapped - I can hardly see any other solution alowing using two FWs on a single hard drive ...
