  • Added predefined and user presets
  • Fixed ability to select invalid ranges
  • Added a file patcher
  • Flasher: Added support for canceling running operations
  • Flasher: Added USB device reset
  • Flasher: Added support for erasing as a stand-alone operation
  • Flasher: Added cycle period selection, should help with longer cables
  • Flasher: Added abort on error option
  • Flasher: Reodered operations, full read, full erase, full write
  • Flasher: Fixed bug with unreliable GPIO operation
  • NOR: Added new write mode "Dual word program"
  • NOR: Added display of total flash size
  • NOR: Fixed flashing of the second half of Samsung K8Q2815UQB and likely other dual chip NORs
  • NOR: Added erase block region configuration
  • NOR: Added selection of number of bytes for buffered write
  • NOR: Added support for Spansion S29GL128N90TFIR2
  • NAND: Made custom ranges work
  • NAND: Added Dual-NAND reading. Reads a block from two NANDs simultaneously, thereby doubling the speed.

Notes:

  • If you're using 16MByte SAMSUNG NOR, please use Sector Size: 4kB/ Sector Count: 4096 and check "alternate writing method".
  • Differential flash, if you haven't noticed yet, will skip unnecessary writes (compares data on chip vs data in file)

Finally, below is GlitchSkeet Rev 111216 via [Register or Login to view links] for those who wish to RGH with ProgSkeet (for XBox 360 users primarily at this time).

To quote: GlitchSkeet: is another bitstream written specifically for the ProgSkeet flasher, which will allow it to operate as a Glitcher like the many Glitch-Chips out there now that are used to perform the Reset Glitch Hack on the XBox 360 console.

The GlitchSkeet Bitstream currently have support for only the "Trinity/Slim" XBox 360 board model, It may need some more tweaking as well as adding support for other XBox 360 board models in later releases as time allows.

But anyway, all Skeeters/ProgSkeet owners have the right to test this Bitstream as it is in its current state.

Compatibility: This Bitstream is compatible with ProgSkeet v1.1 Crystal Blue only, ProgSkeet v1.0 Crystal White won't work.

Preparation: Short R12 and R9, Open R11 and R10

Pinout:

GP5 = I2C_SCL
GP6 = I2C_SDA
Adr0 = CPU_RST (you must add a Capacitor of 220pf/230pf/270pf between Adr0 & Ground)
Adr2 = POST_OUT1
Adr4 = DEBUG PIN / LED

N.B: the Injectus Jtag USB programmer is needed in order to update ProgSkeet with this Bitstream.

Credits to uf6667, Ago, bmx, nice69 and to all ProgSkeet Team members and testers.

Today Italian site DiGiTaLAnGeL (linked above) reports that they have successfully downgraded a PS3 Slim 3.70 Firmware unit to 3.55 Kmeaw Custom Firmware, followed by a New Method - PS3 Downgrade v2 Supports all NOR Flash from TwoStone.

Similar to the PS3 Firmware 3.6x Downgrade via Infectus, this round they have downgraded a PlayStation 3 v3.70 Firmware console using ProgSkeet with the assistance of Dospiedra with a roughly translated PS3 3.7x Downgrade for Slims and Fats with NOR Flash now available.

To quote, roughly translated: The first downgrade to 3.70 on PS3 Slim 3:55, DiGiTaLAnGeL tested by us!

For the first time, we have been involved in something truly spectacular We were the first in the world to test the downgrade from 3.70 to 3:55 on a PS3 Slim (With flash memory, "NOR") using the ProgSkeet and patched some files provided by dospiedra, a famous Spanish coder already riding high for having discovered the method of going back to 3.55/3.41 with the PS3 (FAT flash memory "NAND").

After several attempts, in collaboration with dospiedra, we got to go back from 3.70 to 3:55, enter the factory mode with a simple key to jailbreak, rifleshare a modified version of 3:55 to prevent the SYSCON (the registry in between downgrades) was consulted during the downgrade and now we are happily at 3:55 KMEAW!

With this version of moddata 3:55, you can perform a memory dump today and you can switch on the fly from 3:55 to 3.70 without having to do this all the time-consuming process: using progskeet fact you can go straight to 3.70 changed to 3:55!

Dospiedra said it will release details on the patches applied to the NOR and the update file as soon as possible.

New life for those who arrived too late to enjoy the benefits of the 3:55?

So is there any other difference between the slim and the phat then the size of the nand?

Think I read in the past that the smaller nand versions have parts of their firmware stored on hdd. So is it now just about to adapt it to the smaller nand size or will we get in trouble cause of the external storage of some part of the fw on hdd?

If you got any infos about that fact, pls let me know!

This is great news and excellent work, at least you can downgrade but only for the skilled ones. Hopefully it'll lead to more soon.

Oh yeah - soldering all of those wires can be quite "fun", it should only be for the experienced user, if you think you want to give it a go - buy a broken board off ebay, and try soldering the 32 or so wires to it, if you did a good job, then give it an actual try. Then again, if your PS3 is bricked, you really have nothing to lose!
