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.

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.
