Sponsored Links
169w ago - As a follow-up to the ProgSkeet PS3 Solderless and Dual NAND Kit Tools demo, today the ProgSkeet Team have announced news of a ProgSkeet v1.1 Crystal Blue Edition for the PlayStation 3 that will begin shipping tomorrow.

To quote: Attached is the new picture of PROGSKEET V1.1 L.E. in distribution right now to our resellers (we start shipping tomorrow).

The new version of PROGSKEET has these small changes:

1 - ZIF 50 PIN CONNECTOR INSTALLED ON THE BACK
2 - 3.3V and 1.8V selection (1.8V nands like IPHONE are supported)

Also during next days a new version of the PROGSKEET software will be release, the main target is add the DUAL NAND feature to PROGSKEET. We start to ship soon the samples of solderless tool including the NAND PCB to all our BETA TESTERS.

For all the “old” 1.0 WHITE progskeet customers we attach here a DATA SHEET of the SOCKET ZIF 50 PIN used on PROGSKEET… is a common part that all can buy on [Register or Login to view links] , [Register or Login to view links] and other distributors. We are also offering this socket for a cheaper price to our distributors, you will find sure online when we star the distribution of the solderless tools. So all SOLDERLESS tools are compatible with WHITE 1.0 PROGSKEET version.

We hope to show during the next week the first NOR CLIP tool 100% solderless, and also the NOR PCB a nice add on to allow the FULL DUAL NOR feature.

The production of SOLDERLESS tools start end this week and it takes about 2 weeks to be done. We remember here the kits that will be available:

  • ADAPTOR PCB: the board with 50 pin zif socket and 2 x 32 PIN zif socket. The kit include a 5 CM – 50 PIN flat cable
  • NAND SOCKETS: The solderless socket to connect PROGSKEET to a NAND FLASH TSOP. The kit include a 20 CM – 32 PIN “special” flat cable
  • NAND PCB: The 1GBIT nand flash with 32 PIN zif sockets. Necessary to enable DUAL NAND feature. The kit include a 3 CM – 32 PIN flat cable

PROGSKEET main word is VERSATILE, customers will be able to use it on ALL kind of devices, and also will buy ONLY the things that are necessar !!

BYE FOR NOW
PROGSKEET TEAM

yes the teensy ++ 2.0 works way better than this.

No, this is about the best as it gets. Thanks.

Update: Progskeet V1.21 Signal-Booster by esprit1711 (via psxtools.de/thread.php?postid=570022#post570022) roughly translated:

Hello. First of all, sorry for my bad English.

We all know how good the Progskeet V1.1 is and how hard it is to get one of this these days. But on the other hand, the Progskeet V1.21 no one wants, cause everyone know about the problems (never detect the correct NAND ID, freeze at read or write operation...).

The solution of the problem is not very difficult. hjudges has recognized the problem at his first NANDway Software (where you can select which NAND (NAND0 or NAND1) you want read/write). He changed the software and wiring, so the Teensy focus 5 Lines per signal line.

The StarShip2 (the NAND Controller on the PS3 Board, which manage the NAND ICs) set a High Signal on some signal lines. Without this modification, whenever the Teensy (or Progskeet V1.21) want set the signal low, the voltage level is not low enough (at the Progskeet I measure circa 1,5V). The level is therefore undefined.

Moreover the Flat-cable between Progskeet and Slave board is too long (who has the idea, a 40cm cable is ok???).

I develop a piece of Hardware which make the same for the Progskeet, what hjudges makes with the NANDway Signal-Booster. I replaces the Y-board between Progskeet and NAND-Clip and Boost the relevant Lines. I got positive feedback from every User which got a Signal-Booster from me.

A disadvantage compared to the ProgSkeet V1.1 is unfortunately the stability if the NAND is powered by the USB port. mostly this worked, but sometimes it freezed. to fix this problem, I added a 5V to 3,3V voltage regulator and a 5V power supply, which work perfect every time (you can leave off the regulator, if you use directly a 3,3V power supply).

I designed two PCBs. the first PCB is a little bit greater than the second, but its designed as a single-Layer board (with a few simple bridges)

The second PCB is less then the first and have additionally a voltage regulator scheduled, but is a 2-Layer Board.

(I placed the xgerber files and the project data in the zip file. you can send this pack directly to your PCB Service)

Single-Layer Board (without voltage regulator): [Register or Login to view links]

Dual-layer Board (with voltage regulator): [Register or Login to view links]

You need the following parts:

  • 1x 15-Pin flat cable pitch 0.5mm (15cm or shorter)
  • 1x 5V power supply (3A should be enough)
  • 1x 5V to 3,3V voltage regulator (LMS1587CS-3.3)
  • 1x 32-Pin FCC flat cable connector, pitch 0.5mm
  • 1x 50-Pin FCC flat cable connector, pitch 0.5mm
  • 1x 10F tantalum SMD-0805
  • 4x 100nF capacitor SMD-0603
  • 4x 74HCT08 SOP14 or 74HC08 (the other 74... 08 variants are not CMOS compatible)

I hope I could help someone, with kind regards.

Trying to dump cfi with winskeet i get message every time.

LibUSB Error: %i
[2013-09-18T23:49:24] CFI is invalid (does not begin with "QRY")

Is it the driver or the buitstream that's the problem.
