    I bought a PS3 last year in December (last month).
    It is currently in FW 4.00. I want to downgrade to the modable CFW.
    I want to buy Proskeet, but I'm not sure if that's all I need.
    Is Progskeet V1.1 - Crystal Blue good enough, or do I need other things to downgrade?

    You have to make sure you can downgrade.
    You can never go under what it came stock!!!
    If you bought it 1 month ago good chances are you can never downgrade...

    So you can downgrade if your PS3 goes down far enough?

    Here, this one has a solderless chip for NOR consoles only (generally ones without BC). You'll have to do some research, the only other one is the progskeet, afaik.
