97w ago - 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.
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.

Actually after reading your post, I figure that I do not need to do those step to create the VSH.Self, because I am in 3.55kmeaw, and they have the vsh.self for us. So I bite the bullet (knowing that it might give me red screen) and go for replacing the vsh.self. Now that part is working and my act.dat don't disappear anymore each time I start the machine! Thanks a lot for your help!
Another question though, isn't this ReActPSN2.0 is supposed to do more than keeping your act.dat... I tried to follow the instruction to create backup of my account's psn files, and it worked. When I try to create the account "aa" and port the backup license files to that account, the account got rename to "reActPSN 2.0 1.rif 0.edat". When I tried to log in as that user, I got a error code: 80028c0b.
I don't know what that mean, but I can still log in. Also, the thing I purchased (actually it's the Mercedes dlc I got through purchasing GT5) is confirmed to be working in that new account (before it will not work in any other account except the one I activated with). So is the account created successful? What is error code 80028c0b?
I have downloaded some DLC (WWE SvR 2011) on my OFW PS3. I then did a Data Transfer to my CFW PS3.
Now the DLC has transferred but obviously can't be used until activated. Is this possible using ReAct 2.0 ?
No offence to the OP but the steps in the original post are confusing. I tried following the instructions and installing the patched VSH.SELF (I'm on REBUG 3.55.2 Update 4) but after replacing the VSH.SELF file my PS3 just red screened.
