130w 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:

Cinavia message will continue to appear if you are using blu-ray disk or avchd. Cinavia is only disable when streaming or playing files from usb.

Both usb ports work fine for me also.

Can I install updates/patches (like ErmaC 4.30 1.1, 1.2, etc.) over a custom firmware (e.g. ErmaC 4.30 1.0), or do I need to downgrade then update?

Just wanted to clarify on the whole usb port thing you may want to clarify which system version you have, Cause I have original launch 60 gig, replaced with 1,000 gig hard drive and I use each usb port just fine. With Ermac and an original slim ps3 on Rogero, and also each usb port works.

it looks promising, but you should have a knowledge about the firmware you want to be installed
