Downgrading an nand PS3 solder less?
Downgrading an nand PS3 solder less? –
I stumbled much on google and this forum to find out about downgrading an nand console solder less (I've already flashed 3 ps3's with an E3 NOR Flasher). What I found is that you can use an Progskeet board with an nand clip. Much people say it's not an good option to use. (It's also not cheap). So are there any more options to downgrade an nand PS3 without soldering?
I found a progskeet black tar solderless edition for $50 and I'm thinking of getting it, tho like yourself I'm alittle unsure if this is what I need or if there is another way of doing it cheaper.

According to the Site linked above, this Chip ships with neither a NAND or NOR Clip, as its "Too expensive and with a poor quality." Quote continues... "The alternative will be nice QSB BOARDS NOR / NAND"....
FYI QSB= Quick Solder Boards =/= Soldering (e.g. NOT solderless! QED.)
So not quite the bargain you made this out to be then.
So ya might want to keep looking. Besides, and this is just like my opinion here, that Site looks a little shady to me.
Then again perhaps its just my cynicism. I had to deal with Sites like this about a Month ago. When I was trying to track down an E3 NOR Flasher. As it turned out the Three sites I managed to find selling it on the Web. Were ran by the same Guy. who was known to take your Money and run... It didn't help me either when his Bank Accounts were either in France or Estonia, and not in Germany, (Where I am.)
I see. I quess I gonna think about what should do. An NAND clip seems very rare to get one. Also an quick solder board seems also nice.
*Warning pedantry ahead!*
"An" is used before a Vowel "A" is used everywhere else.
So it would be "a NAND", and "a quick solder board"..
Yes it would seem that it was indeed rare to find a NAND Clip that works with the ProgSkeet.
Then again there's a grain of truth to be found there too. Like the fact that a solderless ProgSkeet can't be trusted to give you the results you are looking for. Not that I would suggest that sifting through lines of Code is easy, ITS NOT! But, its something that has to be done to insure that you don't try and rewrite a bad dump to your PS3. 'Cause that would likely be the death of it. (e.g. Its bricked).
As far as QSB Boards go. I for One would be somewhat less concerned with a $50(USD) Modchip then I was with a $400(USD) PS3. Which must also be soldered to. I could say that if you felt uncomfortable with that task to send it away to have it done for you. Problem is those People are just milking their E3 Flashers to rake back some of that Cash. So those People wouldn't know where to begin when it came down to your NAND Phat.
Like I said I don't like the feel of those dodgy Modchip Websites. I can't put my finger on it, but they just feel off (to me).
When I did get my E3 Flasher, I got it off, of fleebay (i.e. ebay). And, yes I did marginally over paid to get it too. Likely stemming from the fact that the E3 is not really for sale in Germany. The point here being that you might have some luck tracking down a complete Solderless ProgSkeet for NAND, on ebay if your patiently wait for something to crop up. Unlike the E3 though which can be easily removed once your done with it. The ProgSkeet and Teensy++ are kinda permanent, and are less likely to turn up.
Indeed, I bought an crappy E3 flasher (everything breaks off). I have an plan. I found an 48-pin clip. And this:
I quess this one seems better than QSB boards? Also I can use Teensy for more projects.
