120w ago - Below is an Unofficial ReActPSN v2.23b fix update for any Rebug 4.XX PS3 CFW users whose USB device is named dev_usb006. I had this issue but managed to patch the ReActPSN ELF.

Download: ReActPSN_v2.23b_Rebug421-430.rar

After failing to get v2.23 ReActPSN working on 4.30.1 and 4.21.2 Rebug's, I found out that the ReActPSN ELF had hardcoded dev_usb000 paths.

Since my usb path (and I would assume others too, since it's referenced by Rebug themselves) is dev_usb006, ReActPSN wouldn't work.

I have tried this on Rebug 4.21.2 only, but as long as your usb device is named dev_usb006, and your vsh.self is patched, I see no reason this wouldn't work on other 4.x CFW's.

The same issues as with v2.23 remain. I.e. a message that the system was shut down improperly and that it has to repair filesystem after ReActPSN reboots the PS3.

THIS FIX IS FOR 4.x CFW USERS WHOSE USB DEVICE IS NAMED dev_usb006 ONLY!

Of course you install and run this on your own risk. Credits go to the original creators.

Enjoy the party!

Finally, in related PSN homebrew news today below are some PlayStation Network leaks courtesy of sinsizer aka LoOzers (via boerse.bz/multimedia/konsolen/playstation-1-3/ps3-jailbreak/807245-sammelthread-jailbreak-news-nur-news-und-keine-diskussion-13.html#post7918592 and loozers.lo.ohost.de/d/db), as follows:

v1.1 Changelog:

It's a mandatory update because the old server is offline.

  • Removed About field used for debugging

PSNStuff v1.90 Changelog:

  • new tab "metacritic"
  • new tab "Chat"
  • Button timeout - if you click "save rap" or "copy psn link" you have to wait 5sec. till you can click again

Regarding metacritic: back = backspace, reload = F5. To load the html5 version of the chat make a new registry entry:

Or use one of these: reg_ie_html5.rar (change extension to *.rar )

From Elegant: It's basically official links from PSN the same any person would download on a PS3 from PSN. Then it has the rap files so you can activate it using ReactPSN. No, you cannot use this on retail as you can't run custom homebrew and most likely never will. And no this will NEVER have fixes. A rap file is a VERY SMALL hex string that is VERY easy to store along with it's PSN links. Fixes can range from 1MB to 20MB as opposed to basically less than 1KB for rap files, no one wants to host all your fixes on their server.

Finally, from element comes a PSN Stuff Linux Command Line utility with details below:

Download: readpsnstuff.exe

Hey, I wrote a little application which can read the current db from psnstuff. Hopefully it is useful:

Now in db you have the plain text.

Just a note: Themes and ps1 can now be activated using this new version with the hold circle method. Full games like marvel pinball and any DLC still do not work.

Side note: some of the ps1 I've come across still needed me to do the rap method first then the hold circle method.

I simply made that guide because i am on kmeaw 3.55 cfw and i tried every which way possible to get it to run without vsh patching or without aa user but it didn't work for me. I forgot to mention that i was Kmeaw CFW in the guide but it worked like a charm.

I took the risk and copied the vsh.self for 3.55k to my system and it works perfectly. Now everything works and everything is re-enabled and everytime i wanna re-activate another game you have to log into the created user that was renamed and rename it back to aa then, log out and log back into original user and re-run ReActPSN without pressing nothing and bam all is good

Anyway this is great news as soon as there is a full tutorial for this I'll give it a try. I've been locked out of my own PSN games which I actually bought because that's how Sony rolls (seems for some of them if you don't connect to the internet once every 2 months or something they get deactivated).


I was wondering why my daughters PSN games stopped working out of the blue, that explains it.

the games also work on 4.00 which is interesting, you can transfer them to a non jailbroken console using the data transfer utility, this maybe a long shot but i wonder if it would be possible to create a edat file for a homebrew app and boot that?

Ok well i got it to work finally. first things first (this is how i did it so i i am going to try and explain how i managed to get it done i dont take any responsibilities if you mess your ps3 up that being said here's how i did it)

1.) downloaded vsh.self patched version for ReActPSN v2.0
2.) put the vsh.self file for my current firmware in my usb flash drive
3.) Launched Multiman
4.) In Multiman i went to settings and found the 2nd to last option on the list is Write Access to /dev_flash and i enabled it
5.) In multiman went back to the left column to File Manager and hit X on the controller
6.) I Plugged in my USB flash drive into the far right USB port on the ps3
7.) Waited on Multiman to rescan for usb drive then wento to dev_usb000 and hit X on the controller
8.) on right column in multiman i went into dev/blind/vsh/module and located vsh.self and hit circle on the controller and renamed it to vsh.self.bak
9.) On left column in multiman inside dev_usb000 locate vsh.self patched one for your CFW and copy it from dev_usb000 to /dev/blind/vsh/module
10.) Get out of File Manager mode by going back to Games then go back to Settings in multiman and Disable Write Acess
11.) Exit Multiman
12.) Should be back in PS3 XMB now from there install ReActPSN 2.10 from Install Package Files (forgot to mention to have that on the root of your USB flash drive as well prior to plugging it in sorry doing the best i can )
13.) Now Run ReActPSN 2.10 and hold R1 and now it should write to your USB Flash Drive and make a new Folder called reActPSN inside there locate the PubPSN folder and inside it locate rap3edat4.zip and extract it and inside it should be a folder called exdata drag that out and put it into the root of the USB Flash Drive and for any game just put the .rap files in the exdata folder that's already in your USB Flash Drive
14.) Make a New User Called aa Now Log into aa then log back out and log into the original user that you use, now go to ReActPSN 2.1 on the XMB and hit X on the controller and dont touch anything it should now reboot and your aa user should now be renamed to reActPSN v2.0 4rif 4edat now just log into the original username and launch a game you installed via pkg installer and it should be all good.
15.) have to rename reActPSN user to aa everytime you wanna play something new make sure you put the exdata files and .rap files in the exdata inside the USB flash drive

Hope this helps
