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.

Has anyone else noticed that the media player is different when playing back AVC movies?

It looks like it is an early version of the player. Is this part of the Cineva removal?

Thank you,
RJR

Boot sequence is a mortal kombat character isnt that better than someone elses name lol, Rogero 4.30 1.03 works well with all games yet has the whole demo mode when trying to use certain services. This firmware (Ermac works. Playstation Network works and all, the xmb is a bit faster, all games work. And psn so I think its pretty great.

Steps are pretty simple if you are on higher firmware downgrade, if not just go into recovery mode by holding down the power button till ps3 turns on then off, then press and hold power till you hear 2 beeps, let go and you will be asked to plug in controller do so and select update, have this firmware on a usb formatted to fat 32 and named PS3UPDAT.PUP and in folder structure PS3/UPDATE/

Follow regular update. Update multiman and all as well. No issues You are good to go
