156w ago - This weekend the [Register or Login to view links] has made available a video demonstrating the ProgSkeet PS3 Solderless and Dual NAND Kit Tools alongside details below.

To quote: We are happy to introduce you the SOLDERLESS KITS for our ProgSkeet device!

The main word is "BE FLEXIBLE" as ProgSkeet project will be the BEST TOOLKIT for the NAND and NOR flashing!!! We present today the NAND TOOL KITS, in few days we will be ready also with NOR TOOL KITS!!! Stay Tuned

1 - PROGSKEET is 100% PIN to PIN compatible with the SOCKET tool sold from this site [Register or Login to view links]

Just connect the ProgSkeet 32 pin special flat cable. (please note that this version don't support programming or reading with out the device is powered on. A new version will be released with the VCC pad to manage NANDS with a self power provided from PROGSKEET) 360-clip.com and also us we will offer this socket in a package together with the 20 cm 32 PIN flat cable.

2 - ADAPTOR PCB: This pcb is an adaptor from 50PIN ZIF PROGSKEET CONNECTOR (necessary for the coming "NOR SOCKET" solderless tools) to 2 x 32 PIN ZIF connector. With this adaptor progskeet is able to manage 2 NANDS on the DEVICE and also extra 2x SECONDARY NANDS (for dual nand feature). The kit include the 50 pin flat cable from PROGSKEET to ADAPTOR PCB.

3 - NAND PCB: This "optional" pcb has a 1Gbit NAND flash on board. Progkseet is able to use it like a backup nand or switch this nand and use it instead the NAND on the board of the device. The feature called "DUAL NAND" allow to support different NANDs ONLINE and test firmwares in a easy fast way. The software will be ready soon to support this feature, user can also attach a switch to progskeet to allow a fast selection of the NANDs without using the PC tool.

Progskeet support max 2 x NAND PCB on each ADAPTOR PCB, the kit include a 32 PIN 3CM flat cable (from NAND PCB to NAND SOCKET)

You can see a FULL PROGSKEET KIT SAMPLE where is clear how is the complete kit with 2x NANDS PCB and 2x NANDS SOCKETS (on the picture miss one socket sorry J ) but I think the concept is clear.

The big advantage of PROGSKEET is that can work on ANY CONSOLE / DEVICE, is study to be MODULAR and so is MUCH CHEAPER then any other solution that is specific addressed to a device.

The nice special FLAT CABLES are also easy to be fitted inside the device without bit problems, and also the KIT is removable in few minutes and is not PERMANENT.

We remember that PROGSKEET is an OPEN PROJECT study to be used in many kind of devices CONSOLES, SATELLITE, IPHONES, PENDRIVERS etc etc. "PROGSKEET NOTHING MORE THAN A GOOD NAND / NOR PROGRAMMER".

We will send tomorrow more infos and pictures regarding PROGSKEET V1.1 "CRYSTAL BLUE LIMITED EDITION" in production in these days and available in the market soon!

Nice news also about the PROGSKEET software, that now support new nice features.

BYE FOR NOW

We received some more information on the ProgSkeet Flasher from Hardstore. The pricing list and features are attached, and their forum is located at [Register or Login to view links]. Final user pricing is estimated around 49 Euros.

To quote (from the attached PDF):


1- Whether it is NAND, NOR or any other kind of non-volatile memory - just solder, plug in and operate!

2- Blazing fast read/write speed!

3- Beside software-side updates, you can also expect hardware updates powered by customer requests!

4- With a broad range of applications, such as EEPROM programming (among others: Altera, Lattice FPGA/CPLD), Bad flash recovery, more commonly known as "Unbricking" (Modems, video cards, cell phones, music players) and plain serial programming (manufacture of your own device).

5- Supported devices include, but are not limited to: K9F1G08, S29GL128, K8Q2815, HY27US08.

6- Industrial programmers often range in the EUR 1000+ range with limited customer support. ProgSkeet can compete with these programmers all the while maintaining low cost!

SOME KIND OF DEVICES SUPPORTED:

XBOX360 ALL NAND SUPPORT (ALL MODELS)
PS3 ALL NAND AND NOR FLASHES SUPPORT (ALL MODELS)
WII NAND CONSOLE (ALL MODELS)
PSP NAND CONSOLE (ALL MODELS)
ANY NAND OR NOR (CAR MARKET, HANDY PHONES etc, just send us a sample of the NAND and we
can add in 1 hour the support to read and write it FOR FREE!)

TRANSFER SPEED: 1MB/sec (ex. about 16 sec. to read or write a whole PS3 Slim NOR flash)

A solder-less tool will be released in the near future, and sold like an add‐on.

FINAL USER PRICE LIST:
49 EUR pcs. VAT
42 EUR for 5 pcs. incl. VAT
39 EUR for 10 pcs. incl. VAT

Considering everything on this board could be purchased for around $35 without bulk purchasing (before printing), I don't think this will be too expensive. That said, modchip companies are notoriously greedy.

When the final version comes out I expect it to cost around $50 + shipping, which is fair for the hardware but it will more likely cost $60-$70 depending on the initial purchase amount. I just wish it had pins rather than pads, but that is more of a engineering preference.

These devices could be very handy, not really for the end user but people who offer services like YLOD repair for a fee for those who are afraid or can't be bothered could also offer a downgrading/unlocking service.
