PUP MD5: CD938B39F2E2B2FEE05FE14AF72F2272

Changes from the included Release Notes:

ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.3

  • 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
  • No "Demo Mode", XMB fully optimized so you can have the best performance with your console

Changes since 1.2:

  • "Demo Mode" is now completely fixed, no more demo/kiosk fw messages*
  • Some more small bugs fixed, XMB is now fully optimized (XMB is faster than ever before, in-game or not) so you can now have the best performance with your PS3
  • A few cosmetic changes

*If you still want to use PSHome please install 'PSHome_ErmaC_4.30_CFW.pkg' included in the package

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 ofw or cfw to install ErmaC CFW. Please downgrade using the proper procedures (999 downgrader from Rebug team is the best option) 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.

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.
