Today we received word from a PlayStation 3 developer known as HDMadness news of his PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.0 Custom Firmware with details below.
Warning: Although he claims this legit, it is only recommended to experiment with and test this CFW if you own a PlayStation 3 flasher or you may end up bricking your PS3 console!
From his e-mail: I'm a developer and I would like to share my own 4.30 cfw (ErmaC 4.30 CFW) with the PS3 community. It's ready, stable and brick free. And I really would like PS3News to be my exclusive "voice" to the scene on this new project of mine!
I've uploaded the fw to mediafire, so here it is: http://www.mediafire.com/download.php?uts2p2dgi3au6uu
