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)

I seem them out And they seem like they would work. However the progskeet 1.2 are having a lot of problems with writing to ps3s. I would wait into they get it figured out with a bitstream update. They can read the ps3 fine but can't write to it. Thanks
according to what i hear the latest bitstreams for 1.2 dont support flashing yet and i also believe they are working on it atm. im using an early bitstream flashed to my 1.2 and am in the middle of soldering so i will let you guys know how it goes, once completed.
pedromaiaz - it is recommended to set the delay to 200 instead of 50 as your video. however if your using clips i would strongly recommend you not use them as they are unreliable at best. soldering a nor is a very easy job.
i'm currently soldering a nand and by geez its a hard job. all you need is the correct number and length of wires. i always use 10 cm lengths and, once checked for shorts or bad soldering, i have never had a failure reading or writing however that was with a 1.0 so i'm eager to see how the 1.2 fares against a nand.
I have gotten the progskeet 1.2 to take a flash. I also have gotten it to read a ps3 but will not write to one. I will keep doing some work with it as I go and see if I can find a way to make this work. Once I do I will make a guide. Thanks
- the other 4 images are for NOR but they aren't the same... the 2 board pics are obviously of different motherboards without indication of which ones they and the pin naming is messed up, there are the Dxx, the D0xx and the DQxx.. are these referencing the same thing?
- also that's for NOR... what about NAND/Dual NAND soldering pin schematics... can't find "clear" info on that, the 1.2 manual states "zoom in on picture for details" when the image looks crappy at 100%... 200%+ all characters look the same - gibberish.
On a side note, I've read the clips aren't recommended, would you have info on that as well? I've been looking around and reading about this stuff for months now and got my 1.2 (full kit w/o clips) about a week ago when i heard it got released.
Reason i picked this over the E3 is because I understood progskeet did NANDs and NORs whereas the E3 had 2 packages, one for each. I still haven't had the chance (nor time or the proper information) to play around with it, I just want to get my facts straight
