I understand what you are saying completely!

The whole point of the exercise would be to see if I can add in the second nand and a switch (to put it in simple terms) to be able to run either 3.60/1 OFW on one and 3.55 CFW on the other................or..............(more of what I am looking for personally) 3.55 CFW on one and some other CFW on the other.
Even if it was as simple as running Kmeaw on one and Waninkoko on the other. I have no interest (or the knowledge to do so) of trying to dump keys and such.
My main thing would be to gather the knowledge of being able to put 2 nand's together (in one console) and be able to switch between the two at will.
That could be a powerful "tool" for people that know more about being able to "hot switch" between the two and gain more info for future development.
Can this be done?
Of course it can........with a little time and effort.
Could it help in the progress of CFW?
Would it be worth risking a couple of consoles for the effort?
In my mind.......ABSOLUTELY!
Bottom line is this:
90% (or higher) of the people that belong to the various PS3 sites would not be able to accomplish adding a second nand into a PS3 and be able to set it up to switch between the two.
I am in the percentage that has the knowledge, skills and tools to be able to do so (and the desire to want to try it).
Could I fry a couple PS3's?
Nothing good comes from not having a possibility of failure.
Even if it fails miserably, devs could learn from it.
If it were to happen to be successful, devs could learn from that also (and I would happen to have a unique PS3 capable of dual booting).
I keep seeing people write "knowledge is power" and "knowledge should be free" around here.
For me, it truly is about gaining knowledge.
I will have to say that if I start into this project, it will be a few days before I can devote some real time to it.
If it were to actually work, I would have to buy a second PS3 to put CFW on to stay in the rv.
I trust my soldering skills immensely, but don't want to get out on a 4 or 5 thousand mile trip with a bad PS3 due to a screwed up solder joint (hey, we all make mistakes )
I would much rather go to my grave not needing my gun, than go there wishing I had it.
