November 7, 2012 // 4:42 am - Following up on his previous update, today HDMadness has released PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.2 which includes improved XMB Stability and he is pleased to confirm no PlayStation 3 flashers are necessary from this release onward.

Download: ErmaC 4.30 CFW 1.2.rar / ErmaC 4.30 CFW 1.2.rar (Mirror) / ErmaC 4.30 CFW 1.2.rar (Mirror #2)

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 for their continued support.

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

PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.2 is Now Available, XMB Stability Improved

You can't just upgrade from ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.3 to ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.4. You need to downgrade back to 3.55 and dehash and only then you can install ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.4.

I have downloaded version 1.4. Tried to update my ps3 but I got this message "The data is corrupted. (8002F15E). I'm on version 1.3 now and I didn't get that message when I updated my ps3 to 1.3.

Any help about this? Thanks.

thank you all for your help i have now successfully upgraded to 4.30.. i was wondering if i was to log on to psn is there a definitive answer yet as to weather you would get banned?? and if so does your console get banned or just your account?

on another note this firmware has been running fine for the past few hours ive messed around with it..

one last question all my games signed for 3.55 still work is this normal or is it still advised to get the original eboots?

i dehashed anyways (again, better safe than sorry.)

dunno about that old version of MM, but you should be able to update from right inside of it. as for kmeaw, you might have to check around a bit for that. i fortunately still had my copy of it on my HDD.
