78w 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)

friend you missed his point - his solder point is stuffed which means almost certainly no it wont work even if the dump is converted. this is because progskeet 1.2 will use qsb to attach to the board, so unless they use alternate points (possible but not probable) it cannot work for him. having said that all he would have to do is find an alternate point for his e3.
i am eager to get another progskeet (sold the last one - bad move) and it appears cheaper however the price may not include the qsb boards required for each model of ps3, 360 etc. and i suspect that is why theres been no knowledge of it until now (possible delays due to manufacture of the qsb boards - fpc maybe? time will tell).
if you got a 3000 model go trade it in or find a way to get a older one, you need a 2501 and lower to even downgrade a slim.
you have to use flow rebuilder i believe to get your backup from e3 set as a backup file for the progskeet. they both code it differently and flow rebuilder up to date can decode and code it both ways for it to work.
