How to jailbreak + Downgrade ?? –

Well unlike the E3 NOR Flasher both the ProgSkeet and, Teensy++ 2.0 would require you to solder them into your PS3. Which you DO NOT need to do as your PS3 IS NOR! Or you could try installing an ODE (e.g. An Optical Disc Emulator), which will allow you to play Backups on your PS3. However it pales in comparison to running true CFW on a PS3.
But, can I use the Mystical Voodoo Stick that I saw while searching Google & YouTube?
No anything that reports to downgrade / install CFW onto ANY PS3... IS FULL OF SH--!
If and I MEAN IF such a "Voodoo Stick" existed... You wouldn't even have to ask about it. The People who run those Sites and YouTube Vids., are SCAMMERS out to make a fast Buck off of you. Taking their Surveys will never land you what you want, cause IT SIMPLY DOES NOT EXIST!
Now back to your "Other Options" again...
You could also seek out a "Downgrade Service" nearby to you, and have them do the work for you. These Places as a general rule only want to deal with NOR Chipped PS3. Which your "H" is! These "services" also tend to be cheaper then buying the Hardware yourself. As long as you never accidentally update back to an OFW Firmware your good. Otherwise you may have to either take it back to be redone, or just break down and get it latter.
One more thing to note IF you do let someone do it for you. Make sure that you ask for a Hard Copy of your Firmware Dump (i.e. The BKPPS3.BIN File). I have no idea how such Operations work as I never had to deal with 'em. I suppose a CD-R would be the best Option. The Guy doing it might want something extra to cover the media costs. But ITS WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT TO ASK AND GET IT! that way you can always recover your PS3 should it ever go all Pear-shaped and South for you... If it help think of this BKPPS3.BIN File as a Ghost Image of your PS3 that got taken prior to it being downgraded.
IT CAN'T BE STRESSED ENOUGH THAT YOU ~SHOULD~ ALWAYS MAINTAIN A SAFE BACKUP OF THAT FILE!
Regardless if you let someone either do it for you, or you do it yourself.
Thank you very much for this explanation , mostly google and youtube got me to this point of not being sure if it is or not possible . Thank you that I did not brick my console . I will probably search for a specialist , but as for now I did not find any that can downgrade a ps3 , they mostly just mod them . I'll stay with the OFW till then.
Mod.. Downgrade... Install CFW... Its all the same thing. While it may be easy to confuse both the ProgSkeet and Teensy++ as Modchips. They are ANYTHING BUT! They are both Development Boards that have perfectly legitimate uses beyond Console Hacking.

My advice if you want to start looking for someone to take it on for you. Would be to post an Add an the B/S/T Section here and, on every other dedicated PS3 Homebrew / Hacking Site you might come across. Be sure to state your relative Location too.
So what part of "xx04" (i.e. Europe) do you hail from? Me? I'm in Frankfurt Germany... Also... "xx04"
I am from Romania , and I found experts here too , but not in my city . I did not really look into it , but I am pretty sure I will find someone .
