To quote: Pinout (Legacy) [121101.1835] {UPDATED 20:19}

Hello, This is the pinout for the 1.2 (Black Tar Edition) bitstreams and "1.2 Lite" (Limited White/Crystal Blue Editions).

ProgSkeet 1.0 / 1.1 -> "1.2 Lite" conversion

Hello, This concerns both 1.0 (Limited White Edition) and 1.1 (Crystal Blue Edition). The USB1T11A (U2) transceiver MUST be removed.

If you are not using dualboot, please put 10kOhm between 3.3V and SWITCH to avoid any problems.

DNU denotes "Do Not Use" There are no benefits besides dualboot so far.

Notes:

For NOR:

  • 10kOhm pullup resistor on P8

For NAND:

  • 10kOhm pullup resistor on P2
  • 10kOhm pullup resistor on P26

Edit: added STP and PDB

ProgSkeet 1.2 Bitstream [121101.1223]

Hello, Update 121101.1223 changelog:

  • there has been a problem with NAND where it would only recognize secondary nand (on both A and B), which has now been fixed
  • switch is now inverted

Shortly following, however, uf6667 Tweeted the following message: "memory issue in latest bitstream, will fix asap"

From ps3tech are some Progskeet 1.2 pinout diagrams HERE who states:

Hi everyone, i managed to sauce up a diagram(s) for both pinouts on the nand/nor. sorry for the sloppy work as i should of done it alot neater for people to read, but it purely to get the people out of the dark.

These are pdf files, with the nand/nor instructions you might have to scroll down the page until you find the pinouts. i hope this helps. Ignore what is on the diagram apart from the solder points meaning data and address points, anything in red please ignore.

Finallt, from Decoy comes the NOR testpoints stating: I used progskeet 1.2 to extract the dump file from my fat cechl PS3 nor, and I had a very good dump, so these are the things that I understood and want to clarify:

  • you don't have to change anything in the switches (R7, R8) (in my case) (soldering)
  • I used 4 gnd points...
  • used the last bitstream
  • and used this diagrams in picture (motherboard ver-001)
  • I didn't use 3.3V to power up progskeet , i used USB..
  • sometimes you have to change the switch on the slave board (turn on/off) to extract a good dump (without green led) but it still gives same result because both CE# secondary and primary are connected to the board.
  • 3.3V can be wp# so I used it as a wp# and connected to P4
  • Use the pinout a provided by uf6667 (above)

From Morto_: Found the right solder diagram for the Progskeet 1.2 on a COK-002 (Boardtraces/Diagram):

From underwurlde comes a ProgSkeet v1.2 Schematic (Reverse Engineered) v1.0 followed by ProgSkeet v1.2 Schematic (Reverse Engineered) v1.1 and ProgSkeet v1.2 Schematic (Reverse Engineered) v1.2 who states the following:

Not sure if this is the place, but here goes. I have attempted to reverse engineer a schematic for the latest ProgSkeet v1.2 & USB Interface boards. Schematic also hopefully shows how to connect to Dual NAND Flash & NOR flash.

Note: Might not be 100% correct, so be warned! If you spot any errors, please let me know. Cheers, Andy.

Below is a Progskeet 1.2 QSB Prototype picture for the upcoming Progskeet Quick Solder Board (QSB) for JSD-001 (NOR layout4 - SUR-001, JTP-001, JSD-001, KTE-001).

He also made ProgSkeet v1.2 work as a v1.1 with a ProgSkeet v1.2 to v1.1 (Daughter Board) and ProgSkeet v1.2 to v1.1 diagram stating the following:

To date the ProgSkeet v1.2 does not work (cannot program NAND or NOR chips - although some success has indeed been reported programming NANDs).

In my quest to get my v1.2 to work I noted that the v1.2 shares much the same hardware as the ProgSkeet v1.1 which DOES work. That is to say the ProgSkeet v1.2 and the ProgSkeet v1.1 shares a common FPGA, the Actel ProASIC 3.

Here I describe how I have turned my ProgSkeet v1.2 into a ProgSkeet v1.1:

Image below shows the ProgSkeet v1.2 board wired up such that it then 'becomes' a ProgSkeet v1.1. Unfortunately there is no getting away from the fact that I've had to add extra hardware in the form of a regulator and more importantly a USB driver chip.

To test my theory, I made a daughter board onto which I've wired my ProgSkeet v1.2:

So the million dollar question: Did it work?? After using my InJeCtuS to program in the v1.1 BitStream (ProgSkeet_Retail_Default111006.dat) and using WinSkeet111205 I attempted to dump and Program the NAND you see soldered to my daughter board. So far, in dumping and programming a NAND chip... YES! Finally my ProgSkeet v1.2 WORKS.

TBD: Testing a NOR chip (thanks Sarah1331 for sending me a NOR chip to test). Hope this is of use to someone. Note: In using my ProgSkeet v1.2 as described above, I did NOT change ANY of the resistors on the board - I used it as supplied (R8, R14 and R16 not fitted).

He also shared a ProgSkeet Phoenix v1.0 Schematic, ProgSkeet Phoenix v1.0 PCB and ProgSkeet Phoenix v1.0 Schematic PDF stating:

Just updated Schematic based on various requests: 50 way ZIF socket now added for completeness and as well as being able to plop a NAND flash directly onto the PCB, one also has the option to plop a NOR flash on it too now.

Apologies for the slight delay in updating all of this - with just two layers to play with and limited space (the smaller the PCB, the cheaper) it proved to be a bit of a head-scratch to route everything. Nice if someone could cast their eyes over this and spot any errors and report back before I order some PCBs (probably in the new year now).

Finally, from M8nTrap comes a Progskeet 1.2 pinout confirmation and DIA001 NOR, as follows:

After installing my progskeet onto a CECHH04 NOR DIA001 with the "NOR pinout" provided into the pdf progskeet 1.2 manual.. it don't work. When I look at this pinout table, I see missing points... from the manual???

DIA001 mainboard pinout: this couple of points are they necessary or not for a dia001?? ."3.3v" ."tristate" ."RESET"

Update: The "tristate" point is obligatory for the progskeet 1.2 onto a motherboard DIA001! point 3.3V (VCC) is not required cuz the power is provided by another point!... who can confirm PLZ! I do a mistake in my PS3 wiki readings, it's the "ground" (VSS) who is provided by another point... sorry! This pinout seems to be correct now!

Pictures are attached below HERE for those interested.

Finally, the official Progskeet version 1.21 alongside NOR QSB is now available with details below, to quote:

Dear Customers, today back in stock new production of PROGSKEET v1.21. The new production introduce a review of the progskeet pcb layout to grant a better and fast production. No new features between v1.21 and v1.20.

Uber creator of PROGSKEET is working now to release a new version of winskeet... more infos soon.

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.
