Sponsored Links
95w 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!

PUP MD5: 198CA3EA016EA5855988D40F158E1F13

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:

confirmation to the nothing is brick free statement: sony had firmwares that bricked ps3's. so, it's not something that is completely avoidable.

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!

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.

Indeed, definitely not worth the risk.. sooner or later someone with a hardware flasher will give it a try for us I'm sure.

I can't say I've heard of "HDMadness" until today, so time will tell if he's a hero or a goat as they say.
