if you could do this, wouldn't the hdd reformat itself on each bootup to a different fw (if you're lucky)? erasing linux in the process. wouldn't this need a switch for a second hdd as well to avoid the reformat and to store the second fw on?
i don't know very much, but it seems like a few things have to be ironed out for this theory to work as planned.
to run 2 diff fw, yes
to dump 3.61 lvl0....no
This is a theoretical exploit that has been around for a long time. It would involve booting 3.60, switching the flash and resetting the cell. Aparently the memory is not cleared on reset (design fault) so booting an older firmware with a modification that will dump the contents of RAM. The major limitation with this is that when you boot the older firmware, it will overwrite the areas of interest. Perhaps if you can dump it at a higher point in the boot chain (lv1 etc) you might just be able to extract enough information to get the appldr key.

It is not theoretical ?
At least math did it (if he is not sitting on another exploit)
No he didn't
