I'm pretty sure you have to use a hardware flasher. I'll let others with knowlege guide you to the best option.

E3 flasher. Unless you're already on an exploitable firmware you have to use a hardware flasher, no usb downgraders. E3 is really nice, I bought it because I wanted to set up a DB console. There are other products out there but E3 did a fantastic job.

E3 also has forums and copious amounts of ttutorials online already to follow off of.

just to make sure, you have a slim, not a super slim, right? Super slim can't be downgraded at all. And even if you have a slim, check if the model supports downgrading, since the latest slim models did not iirc.

Just to be extra safe, do you know what FW your PS3 was produced on?
