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.

Should be a menu instead of holding the buttons.

What if you don't know what buttons to press then what?

Following up on the ReActPSN v2.10 update, this weekend the popular homebrew PSN application from Hotz8611 has been updated for PS3 CFW users to ReActPSN version 2.20 with the changes outlined below.

Download: ReActPSN v2.20 Homebrew PSN App Update for PS3 CFW / ReActPSN v2.20 Homebrew PSN App Update for PS3 CFW (Mirror) / ReActPSN v2.20 Homebrew PSN App Update for PS3 CFW (Mirror #2) / Patched VSH.SELF for ReActPSN v2.20 / ReActPSN 2.20 and 4.0 Spoofer Bundle / VSH Self Patcher for ReActPSN v2.0 / RAP File Pack

From the included ReadMe file, to quote: reActPSN v2.20 (TRIANGLE fixed mode update)

1. Compatible with reActPSN v2.00.
2. Changed v2.0 backup file format to one zip file, backup speed fast more than 20 times. Fixed some rap long name bug.
3. Added edat fix mode, this mode works on any CFW, no need aa user or patched vsh.self.

(1) Auto generate XMB purchase full activation edat, no need any raps or official edat files.

  • Install official LIMBO.pkg TERIS.pkg HCU.pkg,
  • Run reActPSNv2.10 and keep pressed BUTTON_CIRCLE about 6s, all will be full working.
  • Higher PS3_SYSTEM_VER also be fixed in SFO files (old save data could not be accessed).

(2) Fix PSone PSP THEME with raps. raps from USB0(1)/exdata/*.rap.

  • Install official PSone PSP THEME, copy raps to USB0(1)/exdata/ folder (not in subDirs!).
  • Run reActPSNv2.10 and keep pressed BUTTON_CIRCLE about 6s, all working.
  • And also fix PARAM.SFO to enable PSP remote, higher PS3_SYSTEM_VER also be fixed.

(3) DLC, in game purchase PSN games now working on this fix mode (not sure for all PSN contents).

  • Install official 1942.pkg Flower.pkg , copy raps to USB0(1)/exdata/ folder (not in subDirs!),
  • Run reActPSNv2.20 and keep pressed BUTTON_TRIANGLE about 6s, all will be working,
  • 1942 is full working, Flower still has a error, (press PS KEY) exit to XMB,
  • Run reActPSNv2.20 again and keep pressed BUTTON_TRIANGLE about 6s, Flower is full working.

DLC also could be fixed with this TRIANGLE mode. As I know, EBOOT.BIN with self.flag=4 does not works, and don't run MM with BDEMU2 mode. All fixed contens maybe still woking on cfw4.0 with data transfer(All signed with .......). TRIANGLE mode only fix dev_hdd0/game/TITLE_ID/ BIN-sprx-edat-EDAT-self files. There is a BUTTON_SQUARE mode searching for all type files, but slowly.

(4) Backup v2.10&v2.20 full fixed PSN contents.

  • Run reActPSNv2.20 and keep pressed BUTTON_R2 about 6s,
  • All fixed games(only full working) backup to /dev_usb000(1)/reActPSN/FixedNPD

Please use reActPSN v2.00 Raps mode. Only Raps mode works flawlessly for all PSN contents!

XMB purchase-- purchase menu is in XMB. CFW3.55, target PSN LOGO, press BUTTON_TRIANGLE. Activated with edat and rif, trial and full with one installed package. In game purchase PSN games -- purchase menu is in game, Activated with one rif only.

1. bump yourself up to REActPSN 2.1
2. make sure on the root of your usb you have the "exdata" folder with the .rap of the theme you are trying to install.
3. delete the theme and start from scratch.
4. plug usb in the proper port... 0001 or 0000... with ps3 laying flat should be right most port.
5. reinstall the theme .pkg
6. run REActPSN 2.1 holding circle button till xmb comes back.
your theme should now be working.

Hi, I have installed ReactPSN 2.0 this morning and i've experienced a few problems trying to set up some dynamic themes.
Ok, firts let me tell you what i've done:

- Installed ReactPSN 1.0
- Installed ReactPSN 2.0
- Placed the vsh.self for Kmeaw CFW on Dev_Flash.

So everything seemed fine, the user "aa" was recognized and both the title of ReactPSN and the name of the "aa" user changed when I started the program. The problem was that when I installed the dynamic theme and activated trough the React, on the Themes list, the "Corrupted data" changed just to "Theme". And when I try to apply it, the Playstation give me an information that I need to go to PlaystationNetwork and activate in my account management. Can anyone help me?

PS: I'm on Kmeaw 3.55 and I have already entered the PSN before the "block".
Sorry for the bad english

this is absolutely great, if you see demo games on the playstation store the ones that have a trial version but also give you the option to purchase a unlock or upgrade to full.

hijack the download via charles or similar method
install the game on 3.55 then run react PSN app while holding circle.
it will activate the game then install the 4.00 version spoofer and you can transfer the cracked app to a unjailbroken console running firmware 4.00 then boot the game and download the latest game update data then enjoy the full game online.

you might need to deactivate your console. (not sure)
