ProgSkeet Flasher

Recent Changes and History:

111004:

  • New Qt GUI implemented
  • Linux and MacOS X support
  • 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.

11xxxx:

  • Flasher: New buffer handling.
  • NOR: Added new timing options. Static timing will be configurable later.
  • NOR: Added preset for Samsung K8P2716UZC-QI4D

Notes:

  • Differential flash, if you haven't noticed yet, will skip unnecessary writes (compares data on chip vs data in file)
  • The Ready triggered timing requires you to bridge the RDY and the GP4 pins together (still needs to be connected to the target RDY)

yours truly,

uf6667

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.
