ProgSkeet PS3 Hardware Flasher Project is Announced

163w ago - Today PlayStation 3 developer uf6667 has [Register or Login to view links] 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.

Hi jensen76,

Many thanks for your reply, I did what you said and I was finally able to install the driver, but when I tested for shorts it said there were shorts found. I have attached a screenshot to let you see what it said.

I would really appreciate it if you could talk me through this as I don't want to do anything wrong. I was wondering what the next step would be now?

I look forward to your reply.

Ok it is easy to say that the one that you have has had some problems with writing to chips both nor and nand chips. I have two of them and have never gotten them to work when it comes to writing to the chips, it does read both but not write. I have tried both nor and nand chips and cant get it to write.

Ok so now remember this that if you try it and it doesn't work you will have a ps3 that will not work (brick) the reason for this is that it doesn't write the files that is needed. You will have to flash the newest bitstream to the progskeet. Thanks and if you need help let me know. Like i said i have two 1.2s and still use my two 1.1s. thanks
