CFW & OFW, 2 hdds?
Is it possible to install 3.72 to one physical HDD (500GB) and have other current physical HDD (40GB) with 3.55 KMEAW, and switch them when needed, if we need to play latest original games.
I'm asking because AFAIK - installing affects HDD only, does it also affect NAND or NOR flash memory?
You'd have to switch over the firmware on the flash memory with a hardware mod (E3 Flasher etc) each time you switched drives.

So you need to decide if this added cost is worth it or get yourself a 2nd ps3 with latest firmware wich might not be very much far of from the cost of the E3 Flasher and fee of having it installed , atleast if you live in sweden , In the Us im sure you can get it much cheaper.
Bottom line is there is not any free alternative to get both CFW and latest OFW. :(
Hope this information helps
Seems we'll have to wait for 3.6 CFW.. any news on that by the way?
This being asked alot , but trust me the second one would be real , you would know, it would be big news all over the web on known trusted sites
And ofc never ever trust anything on youtube , according to them we have had CFW 3.60+ for a long time ,wich is ofcourse just a lie , as they are hunting for likes or wanting you to click theire sites or download something of theirs to mess you up.
We just have to wait and see what the future holds
Hope this helps
to finish the question.......
Yes it does affect NAND or NOR.
Along with what Stormeah and Dreamwebber are saying.
You might want to consider purchasing a second console or installing the progskeet or E3flasher.
If you are on a NOR console, the E3 is supposed to be hitting the shelves pretty quick in a completely solder-less solution.
It will still involve the use of a second hdd (for the swapping of firmwares.
I believe the NAND solder-less solution is supposed to happen fairly soon after the NOR comes out.
We will have to wait and see.
What console do you have and what firmware is on it?
