PUP MD5: 90EF8FD8F6D2B2DA106C38DD08DC9C66

Below are the details, to quote: Hello m8, New version released, we can now leave the flashers alone...

  • 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

Changes since 1.1:

  • Some small bugs fixed (XMB oriented)
  • Removed some icons from XMB (they were not needed and helped improving XMB stability), including PSHome. No more "demo mode", if you still want to use PSHome please install 'PSHome_ErmaC_4.30_CFW.pkg' included in the package
  • A few cosmetic changes

*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 cfw or ofw to install ErmaC CFW. Please downgrade using the proper procedures 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.

Finally, below is a demo video from the last release in action for those who missed it.

man, the guy really likes Mortal Kombat. It's not fake, that's all I can say but who would give up rogero or rebug for this, huh?

after the release of rebug i assumed HDMadness would back away since the bug free cfw had been achieved. he hasn't backed away hes still at it. i reckon he'll definitely complete it, and for people who don't want no bells and whistles, and only want perfect game compatability and bug free cfw.

the only two contenders at the moment are ErMac and Rogero. most of the gaming comunity only want a basic bugless cfw, rebug is too much for a lot of users. whoever reaches the goal first Rogero or Ermac is likely to become the 4.30 standard cfw. and yup its probably a known dev under a new name.

whoever it is , i wish him luck and hope he achieves completion soon. theres a lot of 3.55 cfw users sat waiting for a simple insert memory stick and install option thats stable. I think this ErmaC has a very good chance of being the cfw of choice for most users. wouldn't mind knowing what ErmaC actually stands for. (maybe its a clue to who he is)

Yeah, I mean although he calls himself HDMadness for all we know he could be another PS3 Dev using that name for these releases... in any case it's nice to see he is still working at it even if it isn't at the moment the most "popular" CFW and so on.

After all, most of the other PlayStation 3 developers got their start here before leaving the scene or giving in to Max Louarn / Paul Owen dongle payola so only time will tell how ErmaC progresses... it could die off or become number one 6 months from now depending on the amount of time and effort put into it.
