November 4, 2012 // 12:13 am - Several days ago we received word from a PlayStation 3 developer known as HDMadness of his PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.0 Custom Firmware, which has since been tested, updated again and retested and now on version 1.1 with several bug fixes and Cinavia protection disabled for those with PS3 Hardware Flashers only.

Warning: Although tested, it is still advised that only users with PlayStation 3 Hardware Flashers attempt to install this PS3 Custom Firmware or you may end up bricking your PS3 console!

Download: ErmaC 4.30 CFW 1.1.rar / ErmaC 4.30 CFW 1.1.rar (Mirror)

PUP MD5: 198CA3EA016EA5855988D40F158E1F13

From the included ReadMe File: ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.1

  • More Stable than any other 4.30 CFW out there (Tested with numerous PS3, slim and phat models)
  • Can run games signed with Keys up to 4.30 without any patching needed
  • PSN enabled
  • Cinavia protection disabled

Changes since 1.0:

  • Some bugs fixed (including the ingame XMB bug) and improved overall stability
  • Cinavia protection disabled

*You need to be on 3.55 CFW or OFW to install this CFW. After downgrading please install and run toggle_qa.pkg on your PS3 before upgrading to the new version.

Use exactly the same precautions on upgrading/downgrading used on other CFWs to avoid any complication. Enjoy!

Finally, if you do not have a PS3 Hardware Flasher some other (perhaps safer?) PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware options include Rebug 3.55.3 / 4.21.1 PS3 CFW REX Editions and Rogero CEX 4.30 CFW v1.00 PS3 Custom Firmware. Below is the ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.0 PoC demo video for those who missed it:




Also below is a new video demonstrating PS3 CFW 4.30 ErmaC running some PS3 games:

That said, I've been using ErmaC 4.30 CFW for several months. The only problem I got was a user ban from Sony. *sighs*

Just to say it after using ermac's firmware for a while now: thx for this piece of hard work. it's just what it says:

a stable cfw which reminds me of kmeaw. no overhelming and massive feature list which, i suppose, can't be used by 99% of the average users, no modding till noone knows whether it is a ps3 or a tablet pc ) - just a supermodest cfw.

Yes, to switch back you need to install REBUG_3.55.3_999_DGR_PS3UPDAT.PUP from XMB, then toggle qa flag on and then install 3.55 from recovery to dehash console.
