    What was your original firmware when you bought the PS3? Was it on 3.55 or below? If not, then you will have a hard time getting CFW on it.

    "Data version of 2.70 or latter can be installed on this system"

    it means you can downgrade it up to 2.70
    but what you want is to downgrade it to 3.55 to be able to install cfw.

    To downgrade, you need to buy a hardware flasher, open your console and install it on your chipset. you cannot downgrade with a software.
    If you are not ready to open your console, buy a chipset flasher, or do it yourself, you'll have to find someone to do it for you.
