PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.1 - Cinavia Disabled, Flasher Users Only

Sponsored Links
121w ago - 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:

couple of things. first, yes, i would get at least v4.xx of multiman. second, make sure you make 3-4 NAND/NOR dumps, and verify file sizes (tuck it away on your pc HDD after).

next, this guide should help with qa_toggle and dehashing (recommended)

3rd, from what i've been told, DO NOT have a disc in the system when trying to update the firmware, since it will wanna pul the firmware from the disc first (don't know if it holds true or not though, but better safe than sorry) and last, make sure you install from recovery mode.

I've been using Ermac for a few days now, and everything seems to be running smooth. On a side note, is sony still dropping the ban hammer on people with 4.30CFW?

oh, i almost forgot. to make a NAND/NOR backup, go to mmOS, select any file, then hit (start? whatever it is for the hex viewer, it says at the bottom), select no twice, and then yes to backup FLASH.

haven't messed with cfw for some time. just updated from kmeaw 3.55 to ermac 4.30 1.4. did qa toggle to recovery to update. it seems nothing will boot exept multiman. also ps3 freezes when loading a game or returning to xmb. not sure if i updated wrong or something else is up.

so, everything seems to be working fine for me, except for some reason, games will not stay in category view. any time i play a game, enter/exit multiman etc it resets to the default view

1. Yes, it's worth the upgrade if you don't want to manually patch EBOOTs for newer releases to work.
2. The QA features include enhanced debugging that can be helpful if you run into f/w issues.
3. If you brick your PS3, a NAND/NOR (depending on your console) backup (can be done in MultiMan) will allow you the ability to bring it back to life.
