    you don't need the limited.... the normal will do fine.. the limited is only good if you run 2 different firmwares... you also need the downgrade dongle... follow these steps and you will be fine...

    install flasher
    read nor chip
    check file
    patch file
    flash back to nor chip
    power on the ps3 and wait for the missing hdd message to see it if it working
    remove flasher
    put the hdd back
    put in the dongle(this is the only time you will use it)
    power on(power then eject) it will beep and turn off
    now ps3 in service mode
    remove dongle
    put desired firm(must be 3.55 rogero) with the proper lv2diag.self on usb
    plug in the usb in the ps3
    power on ps3 and it will do the rest
    after its done it will turn off
    remove usb power on
    if everything went fine you will be in the XMB with red box saying service mode
    turn if off again
    put the other lv2diag.self file on usb
    plug usb and power it on
    after all this just remove the usb and power cycle the ps3
    congrats ps3 is now downgraded lol
