  • 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!

Just wanted to clarify on the whole usb port thing you may want to clarify which system version you have, Cause I have original launch 60 gig, replaced with 1,000 gig hard drive and I use each usb port just fine. With Ermac and an original slim ps3 on Rogero, and also each usb port works.
yes mine was ok when I use--> jb341, kneaw355, rogero355 but after rogero430 only usb000 works fine...

when I check over ftp I see 2 usb but no numbers... just usb0 and usb0

I have 80gb fat CECHK01

hmmm, yea not possible as i know of now, but i would say sooner or later the dev's will come up with something for you, if you don't want to wait it out you could bring it back to he store you bought it from, and look around for a used one and check the fw on it before you buy, or sell yours and buy one that way, or go to gamestop and they always have bargain disks for around 10-15$

join gamefly and they will send you a disk at a time for free for a month, then 15 dollars a month to keep your subscription, blockbuster will do the same and only 9.99 month after the first, gamefly is easier to get newer games, not sure why you would pay all that money for a ps3 if you cant afford some games tho lol
