Starship2[edit]

South Bridge to Starship2 to dual NAND on older FAT

South Bridge to NOR interface on newer FAT and Slims

Known as the "Starship 2". This chip is used as a flashcontroller between the South Bridge and the 2 interleaved NAND modules (See: Flash (Hardware)).

Testpoints[edit]

Although testpoints exist between South Bridge and Starship2, the protocol used on this EBUS is unknown/undocumented. This makes it impossible to use these points for a hardwareflasher : use direct wiring to the NAND chips or boardtraces instead (See Hardware_flashing#NAND_Wiring). Using direct NAND wiring/boardtraces has advantage that it makes use of the Common Flash Interface Protocol, widely documented (its in every flashchips datasheet) and supported by almost any flasher.

Non Retail[edit]

Reference Tool/DECR1000A Communication Processor Board -> Sony CXD4302GB. Instead of 2x 1Gbit NAND flash on retail models, a single 2Gbit NAND Flash is connected to the Starship2 (there is also an empty pad on the board, which suggest useability for dual NAND)
