It has been answered. Look harder ^^

The firmware isn't stored on the hard drive, try it yourself: Changing the Hdd doesn't change your firmware.

If you meant one Hdd for backups and one for "official" play, the issue remains the same, as you'll have to update to play the official way, killing the jailbreak in the process...

But again...because no one as reply... Is it possible or not to have 2 hard drives one for hack backup (offline) and other for the original $ony firmware (online)?

anyone tested?

The reason the hack no longer works is the same reason that it doesn't work on 3.15 ( guessing) the location of the exploit has been changed and as such the exploit tries to load however patched the wrong location. We just need to find the right location again.
