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 really want to know if its "brick free" , but i dont have a hardware flasher so i wont risk my 60GB PS3
I don't think there's any such thing as "Brick Free"... Whether its user error or Dev error; or both, any PS3 can Brick when you mess with Firmwares... We could build a Brick house with all the blocks that have come as of late, and i'm sittin on one of these blocks.. 1 PS3 down, 3 PS3's left.. I think i'll make it.
I will test tomorrow afternoon if nonone has tested by then. It sounds pleasing to the ear.. I will be downgrading a 4.25 ofw to 3.55ofw with E3 and then see if it can be updated on ofw... i plan on posting a nice video also!
