OK I have been reading alot and this firmware interests me a lot as i'm currently on 3.55 Kmeaw from a couple of years ago my PS3 has never been on a higher firmware (thats OFW or CFW) i have a few doubts though.
1. i only use cfw to play games.. so is it worth me upgrading to this?
2. whats this QA i keep hearing about?
3. also what is it about backing my NAND up?
More Stable than any other 4.30 CFW out there (Tested with numerous PS3, slim and phat models)
Can run games with the latest updates signed with Keys up to 4.30 without any patching needed
Cinavia protection disabled
No Demo Mode/kiosk fw messages when using you PS3*
XMB fully optimized with fast access in-game or not so you can have the best
performance with your console
Changes since 1.3:
Another round of small bug fixes, including the bug that was detected with some 3D TVs
that were not recognized as such when using cfw 4.30
A few more cosmetic changes
*If you still want to use PSHome please install 'PSHome_ErmaC_4.30_CFW.pkg' included in the package
#This CFW will not brick your PS3 System or Harddrive if you install it properly. Use it with caution, the author of this CFW will not be held responsible for any damage that may be caused to your system.
You need to be on 3.55 ofw or cfw to install ErmaC CFW. Please downgrade using the proper procedures (999 downgrader from Rebug team is the best option) and after downgrading please install and run 'toggle_qa.pkg' on your PS3 before upgrading again to the new version.
Use exactly the same precautions on upgrading/downgrading used on other CFWs to avoid any complication. Enjoy!
