107w ago - Today PS3 developer uf6667Tweeted that he has updated Winskeet to version 111120 stating that 110819 is now officially obsolete (NAND works, also using WinUSB now) alongside iSkeet and YASkeet updates with details below.
New WinSkeet - 110819 is now officially obsolete (NAND works, also using WinUSB now)
#ProgSkeet: New iSkeet
#ProgSkeet: New YASkeet
#ProgSkeet: Complete solderless NAND dualboot POC works, no more cutting traces!
Recent Changes and History:
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.
Flasher: New buffer handling.
NOR: Added new timing options. Static timing will be configurable later.
NOR: Added preset for Samsung K8P2716UZC-QI4D
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)

Today Winskeet Bitstream Progskeet 1.2 has been updated by uf6667 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?1004-New-Winskeet-Bitstream-1-2) alongside the release of ProgSKEET Programmer Version 1.0 with details below.
NAND works PERFECT now
last bitstream before final release
progskeet core was rewritten and command set reimplemented in qt (hence the lack of releases in almost a week)
versioning added (it will check if you are using the appropriate bitstream, which is located in /bitstream)
use of files to load presets (instead of using the box on the first page)... nand is still in the making, so I left the first box as-is for now
CFI for NOR works however, presets include most popular NORs but you can also save them (click "Dump CFI" and then "yes" when you are asked to save. put them in /cfi/)
handshakes implemented (goodbye timeouts! might, but doesn't have to, make it slower though... on the other hand, this might enable calibration for specific computers/chipsets )
usb core had a bug where it would just keep writing to fifo regardless of full or not, but this has been fixed
SPI flashing added! (will only be available once I release it for every platform though)
ProgSKEET Programmer Version 1.0 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?1017-PROGSKEET-PROGRAMMER-V1-0&p=3266#post3266):
Available the new ProgSKEET Programmer V1.0
It exchanges the old Infectus programmer. It is 2x more faster and support any ACTEL device A3P family.
AutoGG is releasing soon the support of this programmer also.
All new stocks of ProgSKEET FULL have inside this new programmer instead old Infectus.
ProgSKEET Programmer V1.0
Connect the ProgSKEET programmer to your USB port (windows)
Install the ProgSKEET-programmer-USBDrivers
Open the Command Line of your windows (search CMD.EXE and execute it)
Use the command "CD" to reach the "SOFTWARE DIRECTC" directory. Example "CD" c:/document and setting/pippo/desktop/progskeet-programmer/software directc"
Place in the same directory of the "directc.exe" the file .DAT that you want to program
Type the command "directc -aprogram filename.dat"
About: Ok so I've been working hard on this (like every hour of almost every single day since the last release) and frankly I can't remember every single modification I've made.
I'm still building the bitstreams for 1.0 (white), 1.1 (blue), 1.2 alpha (green, if you've been naughty enough to get one) SO BE PATIENT, MY PROMISE STILL STANDS. It's also coming to Linux and Mac, don't worry! The command line will have to wait a bit longer, I just can't be bothered with it right now (so much other shit I need to take care of first).
If there is any problem WHATSOEVER, please let me know.
I haven't added the bit yet where it tells you which lines might be out of order but I will as soon as I manage to get it working reliably. NAND, due to the promise of releasing within 24 hours, couldn't be fully tested, so I'd appreciate if, only if problems arise, you could detail the problems as much as possible.
Also, regarding my absence: all of this testing takes a lot of time, even more so than school, so I didn't have time to come on IRC or twitter. I'll be more active on twitter from now on: uf6667
BIG THANKS TOTITTY FROM CONSOLE OPEN FOR SENDING ME A PROGSKEET FULLY SOLDERED
Added speed indicator
HIGHLY improved single word flashing
Added hardware data polling (this was a tough one, even I have to tap my shoulder for this; oh, and it uses this by default)
Both NAND and NOR are in one bitstream now (!!!)
No more pullups needed (!!! WICKED, INNIT THO !!!)
Reverted to libusb-win32 because it gives me less shit, but depending on feedback, I'll add libusb0
Did I mention it's fcking fast? it's going to become even faster, I just wanted to keep my promise, somewhat, of releasing within the next 24h
Tooltips (can't remember if it was in the last release?)
130713: buffer write works, about 70 seconds for 16MB spansion (which used to require 15 minutes!) updated bitstream
130715: buffer write and single word improved, I write an entire 16MB nor, buffer write, in about 40 seconds (not including read and erase, duhhhhhhhhh), 3 seconds per sector for single word (spansion is very fast now too) AUTODETECT OF THE NOR!!!! just click "dump CFI"
Hi, I have a question maybe someone can help me answer. I've recently downgraded two ps3s, both were NANDs with progskeet 1.1 and now I'm interested in downgrading NOR ps3s. From what I understand, with NOR, you don't have to program the progskeet 1.1 with injectus, but would I have to reset the progskeet 1.1 somehow because I've uploaded code to it via injectus (during my NAND downgrades)? Thanks.
A dump of the nor with ProgSkeet 1.21
Verified the dump with Bwe_Nor_Validator. Results: Dump valid.
Patched dump with Rogero_Auto_Patcher v0.04
Flash the nor with ProgSkeet 1.21.
A new dump to compare it with the patched dump. Results: no difference.
Now, at startup, the PS3 asks me to insert a USB disk with firmware 4.41 or higher!!! When I inserted a disk usb I have the error 8002F2CF. Could someone help me? Thanks
Dual boot using a switch (led on = secondary nand/nor, led off = primary nand/nor).
Supports both solderless nand and nor together. This should fix the write issues people were getting with 1.2.
ProgSkeet 1.2/1.21 BITSTREAM_12_130401_1824 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?947-Progskeet-1-2-1-21-bitstream-Mar-30-2013&p=2850#post2850) is the second progskeet v1.2 fix NOR bitstream.
ProgSkeet 1.2/1.21 BITSTREAM_12_120402_1730 (via forum.dayton360mods.com/showthread.php?947-Progskeet-1-2-1-21-bitstream-Mar-30-2013&p=2850#post2850) is another updated bitstream, again to fix the NOR read / write issues on the 1.2 / 1.21 progskeet.
+ Added metastability to the DQ ports to filter out noise and glitches
+ Reduced timeout from 1.3ms down to 320ns per word
+ Added timeout for reads/writes (1ms), no more blocking
+ Fixed bug where it would read gpio from data pins rather than from gpio pins
+ Increased metastability of USB (should no longer disconnect)
+ Restored Samsung Q compatibility that was caused by dualboot pin allocation
Finally, from uf6667 (via progskeet.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=109417):
[uf6667]: nand and nor
[uf6667]: nor CONFIRMED working perfect
[uf6667]: if someone's eager to test nand, this is the one
