    I present you my project of a simple PCB (printed circuit board) to facilitate the use of our teensy++2.0 for the flash of PS3 NOR and/or NAND:

    [​IMG]

    Intent:
    - Simple
    - Cheap
    - Easy (to use, to assemble...)
    - Smallest as possible with board traces shorter as possible.
    - Compatible NOR and NAND (SBE) and switchable/reversable between both.
    - Compatible 360-Clips NOR and NAND.
    - Usable with existing layouts and softwares (judges' ones), teensy equiped with voltage regulator or not, etc...
    - Modular (for futur extentions as TSOP adapters for raw NOR/nand... maybe)

    So I designed, built and tested a prototype since a couple of months with very good results. Some pictures:

    PCB equiped:

    With Teensy and 360 clip boards :

    Usage on NOR with SCSI 50 pins cable :
    [​IMG]

    For those who are interested, here the gerber files to manufacture this board: TEENSY2PS3_v1.00
    I'll post a "user manual" later (I have to translate it :p)

    Meantime, I developed a new version (v1.01) with some minor improvements and the addition of optionnal "POWER LED" and "TRISTATE LED":

    Build in process...

    Edit : v1.01 release:

    gerber files : TEENSY2PS3_v1.01.zip
    Manual EN: TEENSY2PS3_v1.01_manual_EN.pdf

    A short video showing NOR tristate LED usage on the v1.01: https://youtu.be/kavm3kILP5c

    My intent is not to sell them or make business. It is open hardware. Everybody is free to make manufacture one or some with my shared files. There is many shops where you can order custom PCB's like OSHPARK, Jackaltac, etc.

    I'm in love!! I have been eyeing a cheap CECHB-01 and want a perma install flasher solution. Guy only wants a phat chipped PS2 with SATA network adapter and a small 2.5" HDD and $50 cash. Hasn't ever had YLOD but alas is on 3.60 just over the software solution.

    Last time I used a teensy++ and the 360 NAND clip. Was almost a solderless solution. At least it was 100% solderless on the PS3 side as my skills just aren't that good. I loaned it out to a buddy of mine that's a marine and he never got it back to my before deployment.

    Then my CECHA-01 got YLOD for the last time and could never find someone to reball it only folks offering a reflow which it had already had twice before. I have a nice Linksys gaming WiFi adapter so I can use that. Still gonna miss the card reader but that all black murdered out system looks so much better then the crappy chrome of the CECHA-01 models.

    I'm using KiCad. It is open source cad software.

    No, sorry. I'm just taking care of some french friends.
    But it is very simple to order one from OSHpark as example.

    Please, read the manual for the details. And yes, you'll have the re-program the teensy and switch jumpers between NOR/nand usage.
