ProgSkeet v1.2 for PlayStation 3 is Incoming, Features Outlined


Sponsored Links
110w 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 kit include:

  • 1x PROGSKEET 1.2 + SLAVE BOARD
  • 1x PROGSKEET ADAPTOR PCB BOARD

Below is a new Winskeet and Bitstream Progskeet 1.2 released from uf6667 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?1004-New-Winskeet-Bitstream-1-2) who states the following:

Winskeet40000 & Bitstream Progskeet 1.2 Downloads: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (10/07/2013) / [Register or Login to view links] (13/07/2013) / [Register or Login to view links] (15/07/2013)

About: Ok so I've been working hard on this (like every hour of almost every single day since the last release) and frankly I can't remember every single modification I've made.

I'm still building the bitstreams for 1.0 (white), 1.1 (blue), 1.2 alpha (green, if you've been naughty enough to get one) SO BE PATIENT, MY PROMISE STILL STANDS. It's also coming to Linux and Mac, don't worry! The command line will have to wait a bit longer, I just can't be bothered with it right now (so much other shit I need to take care of first).

If there is any problem WHATSOEVER, please let me know.

I haven't added the bit yet where it tells you which lines might be out of order but I will as soon as I manage to get it working reliably. NAND, due to the promise of releasing within 24 hours, couldn't be fully tested, so I'd appreciate if, only if problems arise, you could detail the problems as much as possible.

Also, regarding my absence: all of this testing takes a lot of time, even more so than school, so I didn't have time to come on IRC or twitter. I'll be more active on twitter from now on: uf6667

BIG THANKS TOTITTY FROM CONSOLE OPEN FOR SENDING ME A PROGSKEET FULLY SOLDERED

Changelog:

  • Added speed indicator
  • HIGHLY improved single word flashing
  • Added hardware data polling (this was a tough one, even I have to tap my shoulder for this; oh, and it uses this by default)
  • Both NAND and NOR are in one bitstream now (!!!)
  • No more pullups needed (!!! WICKED, INNIT THO !!!)
  • Reverted to libusb-win32 because it gives me less shit, but depending on feedback, I'll add libusb0
  • Did I mention it's fcking fast? it's going to become even faster, I just wanted to keep my promise, somewhat, of releasing within the next 24h
  • Tooltips (can't remember if it was in the last release?)

130713: buffer write works, about 70 seconds for 16MB spansion (which used to require 15 minutes!) updated bitstream

130715: buffer write and single word improved, I write an entire 16MB nor, buffer write, in about 40 seconds (not including read and erase, duhhhhhhhhh), 3 seconds per sector for single word (spansion is very fast now too) AUTODETECT OF THE NOR!!!! just click "dump CFI"

Hi, I have a question maybe someone can help me answer. I've recently downgraded two ps3s, both were NANDs with progskeet 1.1 and now I'm interested in downgrading NOR ps3s. From what I understand, with NOR, you don't have to program the progskeet 1.1 with injectus, but would I have to reset the progskeet 1.1 somehow because I've uploaded code to it via injectus (during my NAND downgrades)? Thanks.

I had a slim PS3 with firmware OFW 4.41.

I made:

  • A dump of the nor with ProgSkeet 1.21
  • Verified the dump with Bwe_Nor_Validator. Results: Dump valid.
  • Patched dump with Rogero_Auto_Patcher v0.04
  • Flash the nor with ProgSkeet 1.21.
  • A new dump to compare it with the patched dump. Results: no difference.

Now, at startup, the PS3 asks me to insert a USB disk with firmware 4.41 or higher!!! When I inserted a disk usb I have the error 8002F2CF. Could someone help me? Thanks

ProgSkeet 1.2 Bitstream 2013-03-30 by uf6668 is attached below, which fixes NOR issues with the following changes:

The long awaited fix for Progskeet 1.2 is finally here, uf6667 confirms this should fix the write issues people were getting with 1.2.

Download: [Register or Login to view links] / [Register or Login to view links] (Mirror) / ProgSkeet_12_130401_1824.rar‎ / ProgSkeet_12_120402_1730.rar‎

  • Dual boot using a switch (led on = secondary nand/nor, led off = primary nand/nor).
  • Supports both solderless nand and nor together. This should fix the write issues people were getting with 1.2.

ProgSkeet 1.2/1.21 BITSTREAM_12_130401_1824 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?947-Progskeet-1-2-1-21-bitstream-Mar-30-2013&p=2850#post2850) is the second progskeet v1.2 fix NOR bitstream.

ProgSkeet 1.2/1.21 BITSTREAM_12_120402_1730 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?947-Progskeet-1-2-1-21-bitstream-Mar-30-2013&p=2850#post2850) is another updated bitstream, again to fix the NOR read / write issues on the 1.2 / 1.21 progskeet.

ProgSkeet_12_130402_1730.dat
+ Added metastability to the DQ ports to filter out noise and glitches

ProgSkeet_12_130401_2010.dat
+ Reduced timeout from 1.3ms down to 320ns per word

ProgSkeet_12_130401_1824.dat
+ Added timeout for reads/writes (1ms), no more blocking
+ Fixed bug where it would read gpio from data pins rather than from gpio pins

ProgSkeet_12_130330_1909.dat
+ Increased metastability of USB (should no longer disconnect)
+ Restored Samsung Q compatibility that was caused by dualboot pin allocation
