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


83w 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

both it is a solder solution or a NAND/NOR Clip or the new QSB (Quick Solder Boards)

QSB is far more cheaper than clips since you can only used this once, so if you removed it, then you have to get another one.

from what I gather only 1.1 is solderless and 1.2 needs a solder.

Either way can someone give me information as had issues downgrading with E3 (not recognised) despite being compatable so wanted to try progskeet but have zero soldering experience.

I wanted to do a solderless install

Hello everyone , after a week of working on PS3 slim 250gb DYN-001 m-board (NOR SAMSUNG K8Q2815UQB-PI4B).

I am stuck with no success and YLOD ps3... Yeah i know i know ... So i though meiby there is someone that actauly tried the progskeet 1.2 and understand all the pins and bitstreams and etc.

I will attach the diagrams i've been using and which points i soldered. I will be really thankful for helping me out. as well sorry for my english. so these are my questions :

1 ) Infectus/Injectus can i reupdate the tool if i experienced an error during the firs cennection? Software does recognize it but just to be sure a clean update would be safer.

2 ) Injectus/Infectus what does the 1 & 2 switches do? do they mean anything to the progskeet 1.2 board for uploading the bitstream? both up - both down does the operation with success. 1up 2down no joy. 1down 2up done sucessfully.

3 ) Progskeet 1.2 Bitstream 12_121106_2121 does it change the pin layout from the old one ? because i found in progskeet forum 2 different layouts (i think) 1st is the original one pdf file from instructions & the 2nd one is from progskeet man on twitter.

4 ) Progskeet 1.2 SlaveBoard switch : on , off (green light) i do know that it is for nand 1st and 2nd nand to choose witch one to read. But does it actually do anything for the NOR chips?

5 ) E3 Flasher usb connection what is that for ?

6 ) I attached pictures of my soldering and a picture of the list of points which i soldered to motherboard from progskeet 1.2 is there any mistakes?

7 ) Is the pinouts from attached files any different? pinout legacy and progskeet manual. Because i used the progskeet manual for the newest bitstream 12_121106_2121?

Well I can say I just got one and I will tell you what, I am having a hell of a time getting this thing to flash its bitstream. I can't get it to take it. I have tried to hook it up to a ps3 and nothing and have tries a lot more. So far I don't like it. Thanks. Will do a full review once I get it to work if I do.
