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.

I confirmed it's definitely an ErmaC problem, and not a K-Pop issue It's funny that I noticed the same thing yesterday, but kinda' ignored it until you mentioned it.

I have added one more mirror to the main article now that may or may not be any better than the others.

I thought apps were working from the XMB on my slim but after double-checking, I realized it was in the same boat as the phat. So you're right... It's standard procedure to resign apps for use on 4.30 firmware. Thanks!

You need to sign your apps with the 4.30 keys or download them already signed. It's the same with all 4.30 fw's.

I upgraded my identically configured phat & slim consoles from Kmeaw 3.55 fine, but Showtime wasn't working on the phat anymore (error 80010017) when launched from the XMB (works fine from Multiman). I tried uninstalling/reinstalling, as well as copying the files from the slim's /game/HTSS00003 folder.

I solved it by resigning the EBOOT.BIN with TrueAncestor EBOOT Resigner to NPDRM EBOOT. The only problem is that it appears most of my programs (various emulators, etc.) were also getting 80010017 (and why should I have to resign all those XMB EBOOTs?)... Possible ErmaC 4.30 bug, or maybe I need to re-install the ErmaC .PUP?
