Finally, from stevorkz: REACTPSN IN 4 EASY STEPS (for you and anyone else having ReActPSN issues)

1. Place your .rap in a folder called "exdata" on a usb flash drive
2. put the flash drive in the usb port closest to the blu ray drive
3. create a user on ps3 called "aa" and log into it
4. while logged into "aa", run reactpsn on the ps3

Done. After that, reactpsn will throw you into your normal profile and you will not have to do that again. Anyone saying this program is too complicated they shouldn't bother with ps2 games for now because it really is as easy as that. If you followed these steps and you still arent getting anywhere then you are using the wrong .rap.

I tried using ReActPSN 2.20, but had trouble understanding how to use it. There are different versions of it and every guide tells you something else to do. Can someone explain how to use it to activate the DLC?

I couldn't find any links for Marvel Pinball other the ones on ReActPSN, but I suggest you try out "Pinball Hall of Fame: The Williams Collection". It's a pretty good pinball game imo.

please do take note that some or most of the DLC that you will be registering using reactpsn might not work, since you haven't got your PS3 logged on to PSN.

trying to understand how to fully use this tool still, but are you saying you should be logged into PSN to get the most reactivation? I thought you didn't want to be on PSN with CFW for fear of getting banned??

That's not going to help anyone unless you tell us what firmware and what modifications are done to that firmware. I have my own 355MFW that I was running and I tried the 355 vsh.self and it red screened. I had to take my vsh.self and mod it manually then it worked fine.

So I recommend to everyone don't touch that file as it will most probably red screen your PS3 and if you don't know what to do then its your fault.
