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.

Red screen is when there is an error like when you change the vsh.self or another important file. I'm guessing I used the wrong one. I have a firmware I made via MFW and thought 3.55KM is the one I should use but its not.

I'm after a way to stop the act.dat from deleting on reboot...
Hi spunkybunny, I really need your help since I am in the similar situation. I have backup my act.dat before I move onto a new hdd, and as I expected, the act.dat got deleted on every boot of PS3 (maybe checksum of new hdd and old hdd not matching something in the ps3 sys? I am not a pro so I don't understand why this is happening)

From your post, I see that you successfully made it to not getting delete on every boot. Can you show me step by step how you've done that? The tutorial in the first post is very confusing and have multiple points/step repeating themselves. I don't seems to understand them (maybe because it's translation from chinese?). I have basic knowledge of file copying and devblind usage in multiman, so hopefully you can help me to go through your steps. I have 3.55 kmeaw cfw though.

Also,
[LIST=1]
[*]What do you mean by red screen? Will that brick the ps3? Where does the red screen happen? Is that recoverable?
[*]As I stated I am using 3.55 kmeaw cfw, so do I need to edit the vsh.self manually? If so, how? (text editor?)

So I recommend if you have a MFW then edit the vsh.self manually like it says on the first p.
How i can edit this file manually (which program). I have my act.dat can i put it in the exdata folder, edit the vsh.self and after reboot the act.dat is in the exdata folder forever?

After some tests and red screens i made it. I used multiman with the dev_dlind option, activate it copy vsh.self in the right place and deactivate dev_blind option in multiman then copy the act.dat in the exdata folder. Reboot and the Psn Games still activ.Expect for a few games are demos now. From ca. 70 psn games are 6 games demos.

For some reason when I try to repair database it says HDD is corrupt and wipes it so I can't do it that way.

I've formatted the HDD and reinstalled everything and I'm not going to risk it again. It's a 500GB HDD and took a week to reinstall everything last time.

pkgs do not need necessary installed new. you can bkp all installed games from game directory and copy back. then make repair database.

it even works with trophys and saves but for them also xreg backup
