Sponsored Links
111w ago - Several days ago we received word from a PlayStation 3 developer known as HDMadness of his PS3 ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.0 Custom Firmware, which has since been tested, updated again and retested and now on version 1.1 with several bug fixes and [Register or Login to view links] protection disabled for those with PS3 Hardware Flashers only.

Warning: Although tested, it is still advised that only users with PlayStation 3 Hardware Flashers attempt to install this PS3 Custom Firmware or you may end up bricking your PS3 console!

From the included ReadMe File: ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.1

  • More Stable than any other 4.30 CFW out there (Tested with numerous PS3, slim and phat models)
  • Can run games signed with Keys up to 4.30 without any patching needed
  • PSN enabled
  • Cinavia protection disabled

Changes since 1.0:

  • Some bugs fixed (including the ingame XMB bug) and improved overall stability
  • Cinavia protection disabled

*You need to be on 3.55 CFW or OFW to install this CFW. After downgrading please install and run toggle_qa.pkg on your PS3 before upgrading to the new version.

Use exactly the same precautions on upgrading/downgrading used on other CFWs to avoid any complication. Enjoy!

Finally, if you do not have a PS3 Hardware Flasher some other (perhaps safer?) PlayStation 3 Custom Firmware options include Rebug 3.55.3 / 4.21.1 PS3 CFW REX Editions and Rogero CEX 4.30 CFW v1.00 PS3 Custom Firmware. Below is the ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.0 PoC demo video for those who missed it:

Also below is a new video demonstrating PS3 CFW 4.30 ErmaC running some PS3 games:

I have updated the first post with a video of it in action now.

If anyone with a flasher can test and confirm it for us we will mainpage it as well. Thanks!

To be honest probably even if it works this is pointless due to this

"*You need to be on 3.55 cfw or ofw to install this CFW. Use exactly the same precautions on upgrading/downgrading used on other CFWs to avoid any complication. Enjoy!"

about 80% of people probably have ps3 on 4.21, 4.25, 4.30 so please can they make an update for people on 4.25, 4.30 already? thanks for the hard work and keep at it!

Functionality, compatibility and a all round stable bug free firmware would be fantastic round about now, guess with time that will happen eventually. Off course referring to recent 4.XX CFW releases only. ErmaC in my opinion should be a definite test for guys with flashers and some feedback on tests carried out would be phenomenal to the community. Results in order to measure the various flavors available.

As a mere end user to all that is available on the scene a BIG SHOUT OUT to all Developers and constructive contributors that make this all possible for guys like me. It is most truly appreciated by me and most others I'm sure!

Any "flasher" owners want to give this a go?

Because there are people on 3.55 CFW that wish a more updated CFW, also, there are people on 3.56+ that are willing to waist some cash to downgrade their PS3. Lv0.2 PS3 people are out of luck though. Anyway, just because this CFW might not be a big thing for you, It is for others.
