Changes from the included Release Notes:

ErmaC 4.30 CFW v1.3

  • 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
  • No "Demo Mode", XMB fully optimized so you can have the best performance with your console

Changes since 1.2:

  • "Demo Mode" is now completely fixed, no more demo/kiosk fw messages*
  • Some more small bugs fixed, XMB is now fully optimized (XMB is faster than ever before, in-game or not) so you can now have the best performance with your PS3
  • A few cosmetic changes

*If you still want to use PSHome please install 'PSHome_ErmaC_4.30_CFW.pkg' included in the package

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 ofw or cfw to install ErmaC CFW. Please downgrade using the proper procedures (999 downgrader from Rebug team is the best option) 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.

It's more stable and less buggy than rogero, that i can tell you. Rebug 4.21, that's the better new cfw all around, it offers a lot (perhaps too many for the common user?) of options and perhaps the most stable of them all. For game compatibility this ErmaC and Rogero might be equal on performance and the best options since no patches are necessary to play the latest games.

Either a flasher yourself or someone who has one correct, but with the backup it's fixable at least should anything go wrong.

just to clarify, even with the backup i would still need flasher to recover from a brick wouldn't i?

I'd check out THIS guide as it covers making a NOR/NAND dump using multiMAN or memdump before installing any CFW to have a recovery backup in case of any bricks. Also another worth a peek is Itskamel's n00b Guide (scroll down). Always better to be safe than sorry

ok, so, what are all the steps i should take then? just so i can have a -perfectly- clear guide on how to install this.

Well, since version 1.2 HDMadness has officially removed the "flasher required" warning and thus far there haven't been any brick reports... of course there is always a risk (even installing Sony's OFW updates) of bricking, but ErmaC CFW is basically the same safety wise as the others now.

so are we calling this one safe to update to? i own a CECH80gb with 3.55 Kmeaw, and i don't want to risk bricking if people still think it's too risky.

safer to downgrade to 3.55 it explains the safest install in the notes at the beginning of the article..

anything you do other than that is your own choice.

For me the media controls cut off at the top and scene selection does not work properly. No images. Wish i had known of this before.
Anyone know a fix?
