Before continuing on this adventure... Some things to check out are:

You can further use this tool to check if your PS3 can be downgraded... http://psx-scene.com/forums/content/...eck-tool-1238/ If it reports that your Stock Firmware is LESS then 3.55 then your golden! If on the other hand it turns out to be higher. OFW3.60... Then your SOL NO CFW 4U! ITS VERY IMPORTANT TO RUN THIS IF YOU HAVE A 25xx! Again you have to be able to install OFW3.55 or earlier if you want to run CFW!!
The Downgrade HOWTOs Section. This Page pretty much covers everything you ever wanted to know about downgrading your PS3 Reading this (and the assorted Links to the Dev Wiki there-in), WILL BENEFIT YOU GREATLY! http://psx-scene.com/forums/f263/ult...98/#post988671 (The Ultimate Fool Proof Guide - PS3 Hardware Downgrading)
Assuming that you have a hackable PS3, you'll need a Hardware Flasher to downgrade it back to either an OFW3.55 or more likely to Rogeros RSOD 3.55 Downgrader, (Thus bypassing the need of a FSM* USB Stick), then update that to Rogeros CFW3.55 v3.7, then finally to whatever CFW you'd like to run.
You might have seen stuff on Google or YouTube about Downgrading your PS3 without needing any additional Hardware (i.e. The E3), these Sites are all scams! Plan and simple. If such a miracle were found then everyone, but S0NY would be happy now. However unless you have a PS3 that is on OFW3.55, or LESS! This is simply not the gonna be the case, and you'll need a Hardware Flasher to downgrade that PS3 END OF STORY!
If it turns out that you have a newer PS3 that can't be hacked, you can still use One of the newer ODEs (Optical Disk Emulators), from either Cobra, E3 or the PSK3y. Of those Three the E3 is offering the biggest promises of CFW to run Homebrew. I'm not sure how thats gonna work. So we'll just have to wait, and see. Hopefully it'll hit the shops latter next Month.
*FSM Factory Service Mode. = The old PSjailbreak Stick you might have heard about a long, long time ago.
