1 and 2 are obvious, 3 is considered due to my own experience, after changing the HDD, i follow the order to format the new HDD and update the system to 3.41, then my PSN game shows the online activation needed, then i replaced with my old HDD, it still shows the same requirements, so...
anyway, if somebody can share or just analyse this act.dat and report here, there maybe a chance or other leading clues...
looking forward to the following up~
