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.

please can anyone help me with the above questions??
1. Yes, it's worth the upgrade if you don't want to manually patch EBOOTs for newer releases to work.
2. The QA features include enhanced debugging that can be helpful if you run into f/w issues.
3. If you brick your PS3, a NAND/NOR (depending on your console) backup (can be done in MultiMan) will allow you the ability to bring it back to life.

OK I have been reading alot and this firmware interests me a lot as i'm currently on 3.55 Kmeaw from a couple of years ago my PS3 has never been on a higher firmware (thats OFW or CFW) i have a few doubts though.

1. i only use cfw to play games.. so is it worth me upgrading to this?
2. whats this QA i keep hearing about?
3. also what is it about backing my NAND up?

thanks for any help
