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!

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)

The E3 flasher was just built up hype for nothing really. I'm glad there is finally a device that supports dual-booting. I still don't understand why the E3 team decided to cancel the dual boot function in the first place.
