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.

Following up on the previous update, today dantezteam Tweeted a picture of what appears to be a way to activate full and demo PS Vita games using ReActPSN on a PS3 console running Custom Firmware.

Once activated using a PS3 on CFW and ReactPSN, the PlayStation Vita games are then transferred to Sony's PS Vita handheld console.

Currently there are no clear instructions or guide beyond the team stating "pkg-ps3-react-psvita-play" unfortunately so this is being considered a rumor until additional details surface.

Update: Digging into this it was an oversight in how the Brazilian PSN store worked. There was bug in that allow basically someone with PSN+ to keep their games without needing to be PSN+ member anymore.

Sadly, it been fixed, the outcry over it on twitter was that a lot of scene people knew and keep it secret not even informing those in Brazil regarding the bug or mistake by Sony's PSN store management.

Would be so much easier if they made a menu for it instead of the stupid button presses.

Would someone contact the devs and tell them to make a menu or some other dev make a menu for this as its just stupid the way it is now.
