118w ago - Following up on their previous PS3 release, today Oscar Dalvit has announced that ProgSkeet v1.2 for the PlayStation 3 is incoming with the features outlined below.

To quote: Dear Customers, PROGSKEET V1.2 is in production, release: first week of October (maybe early)

Here some infos in preview:

1- Redesign of main board now more small and stable (4 layers)
2- Slave board with USB, LED, SWITCH (for memory banks selection)
3- FCC cable 15 pins that allow to connect externally the slave board
4- Bus SPI on FCC cable for future expansions
5- 100% support of WINSKEET
6- DLL OPEN library to allow integration in other alternative programs
7- 1 Mbit SPI FLASH memory on board

The package content:

  • 1x PROGSKEET V1.2 + SLAVE BOARD
  • 1x ADAPTOR PCB PROGSKEET

The main improve of the new PROGSKEET V1.2 solution will be the support of DUAL NOR / NAND on different consoles. NOR and NAND CLIPS are not anymore official supported, we decide to move on QSB BOARDS, more cheaper and sure more stable then CLIPS. Soon news also about these accessories.

More infos about specs of new WINSKEET and SOFTWARE will be posted soon.

Preorders of the first limited production are open! Contact us!

Update: ProgSkeet Black Tar Edition 1.2 - We are happy to present you the new PROGSKEET V1.2.

This new progskeet version introduce these changes:

1- Redesign of main board now more small and stable (4 layers)
2- Slave baord with USB, LED, SWITCH (for memory banks selection)
3- FCC cable 15 pins that allow to connect externally the slave board
4- Bus SPI on FCC cable for future expansions
5- 100% support of WINSKEET
6- DLL OPEN library to allow integration in other alternative programs

Finally progskeet team stop to supprot CLIP tools, too much expensive and with a really bad quality. The alternative will be nice QSB BOARDS NOR / NAND for different consoles that will be soon available.

The kit now works exactly like PROGSKEET V1.1 but soon new features will be added. More infos about new specs will be released on official Web site.

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 ...

i doubt i'd use a flasher on any other device but who knows.. i'm dying to get on of these to tinker with but i'm not mucking round soldering on ps3s that are still new and under warranty.. LOL

i want the clip version and when theres one that works i'll grab it and review it for you all from my point of view.. i've never had exp with nand nor and didn't even know what it was 6 months ago.. LOL

As said above - the problem is not in the software but the hardware - you need some way to conenct to the flash / nand / nor chips on board and that couldn't be resolved purely by the seftware.

There we'll basically two directions / group of users - one universal, very versatile solution which will support wide range of devices including PS3s but indeed would be less customized and adapted to fit nicelly into the PS3 like progskeet and then other group dedicated mainly to PS3 use with additional bonus of being capable handling other devices as well - good example is the E3 Flasher indeed. It's up to each of us to chose what benefits them best and hope that suppliers of the device will support it with new hw revisions and FWs coming...

Well, if you are talking about using a calculator to reflash the PS3's flash chips - no. However, there was NORway which can sort of (at least reflash) for you. Of course, its lots of soldering, and it may not even do what you need.

There are actually a TON of uses for a nand chip reader, especially if the clip is good (soldering can get annoying to a nand flash). You name your electronic device, you could possibly get a chance to tinker inside!
