PUP MD5: 90EF8FD8F6D2B2DA106C38DD08DC9C66

Below are the details, to quote: Hello m8, New version released, we can now leave the flashers alone...

  • 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
  • PSN enabled
  • Cinavia protection disabled

Changes since 1.1:

  • Some small bugs fixed (XMB oriented)
  • Removed some icons from XMB (they were not needed and helped improving XMB stability), including PSHome. No more "demo mode", if you still want to use PSHome please install 'PSHome_ErmaC_4.30_CFW.pkg' included in the package
  • A few cosmetic changes

*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 cfw or ofw to install ErmaC CFW. Please downgrade using the proper procedures 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!

*Thanks to PS3News.com for their continued support.

Finally, below is a demo video from the last release in action for those who missed it.

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.
