So I'm trying to downgrade my PS3 from 4.11 and all these sites with E3 Flasher got different details it's so confusing. So I was wonder can anyone that knows about it tell me what I need so I can downgrade my PS3 and enjoy CFW 4.30
if your on 4.11 OFW you will need a hardware flasher. to downgrade. it involves opening the case and either soldering wires or installing a clip. they're also expensive and cheaper to buy another ps3 on 3.55.
if you do go the downgrade route, its safer to get someone else to do it unless you feel confident opening up your ps3.
look in the forums there is a thread for ps3 downgrade and unbricking service. i'm sure someone in there could help you out.

Yea thats true, you do need to determine what firmware your PS3 came with out of the factory, if its above 3.55 then you can't downgrade even with a flasher as it may result in a brick in your console, as Luci Ferson suggested get another ps3 with 3.55 already there so you don't even need a flasher.
Of course a flasher would be a great tool to have in case anything does go wrong with the upgrade process, to check if you have a downgradable console use MinVerChk, and yea like Luci said get someone to downgrade it for you to avoid messing up your system
If your model number is CHECH-2008A and you want to downgrade/unbrick your PS3 you have NOR and can be downgraded with all the major flashers (Teensy++/Progsket/E3). You can get a flasher or find somebody who is offering a NOR downgrade service.
