Just to be clear, what kind of SSD did you
Also are you booting from an Optical drive adapter?
You may want to format your SSD in an external case and then, once formatted
Install it into your MacBook Pro.
Hmm, with all you are telling me
formatting shouldnt have been an issue

A Intel 520 series 120 gb SSD. (I'd like to note, that this worked for 4 months prior to error)
I'm booting from the SuperDrive, that I've put in an external exclosure.
Just 5 minutes ago, the Mac decided to boot into the SSD and it showed me the welcome-video to Snow Leopard. I have no clue on how this happened, since I had it boot into the HDD just half an hour ago.
Should i try cloning the system+apps from the HDD to SSD? If the Snow Leopard system-cd is corrupted?

Am i safe to upgrade to Mountain Lion now?
Or should i try copying the HDD data to the SSD (so the Lion+apps get transfered).
I'm imaging this could be done by:
1. Booting to HDD
2. Format SSD
3. Use SuperDuper to clone Apps+System to SSD.
That would "make sure" that the system isn't corrupted, since it's working on the HDD.

Yes, early 2011.
Ooooh, there was actually a system update from before ML-upgrade, that i ignored, because i thought it would automatically get installed with ML. That may be the problem?

I have early 2011 MBP with SSD myself. There was at least 1 firmware update until SSD begin to work reliably. If you installed it - recheck that all connectors are good fitted into places.
But I think you're somehow missing that FW update was not done. there told how to check version of FW installed - check it against latest - is it same?
