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.

Cinavia message will continue to appear if you are using blu-ray disk or avchd. Cinavia is only disable when streaming or playing files from usb.

Both usb ports work fine for me also.

Can I install updates/patches (like ErmaC 4.30 1.1, 1.2, etc.) over a custom firmware (e.g. ErmaC 4.30 1.0), or do I need to downgrade then update?

Just wanted to clarify on the whole usb port thing you may want to clarify which system version you have, Cause I have original launch 60 gig, replaced with 1,000 gig hard drive and I use each usb port just fine. With Ermac and an original slim ps3 on Rogero, and also each usb port works.

it looks promising, but you should have a knowledge about the firmware you want to be installed
