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?
thanks for any help
not to be skeptical, but has anyone actually unpacked the PUP and checked the MD5's with rogero's cfw?
Rogero has broken lv0 chain which causes semibrick after hdd format.

*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!
