Unfortunately, the PS2 game can not be modified prompt displayed in XMB icon PS3 PSN games they can. Delete after import old PS2 save the data, after the first run, manage to save data (PS2) at only real PS2 TITLE ID and ISO file name.
A function, automatically more than one ISO file generation making PKG install package the only game ID (PS2ID), can also display UTF8 Chinese, have been substantially completed, but taking into account the slower on the PS3, they will not provide.

From aldostools: ReActPSN v2.24b1 with support for import PS2 ISO from XMB
1. Run the pkg.bat in the SOLTPKG directory to create the PS2 containers installation files ("slots"). Then copy the PKG files to the root of the USB drive and install on them PS3. Depending on your needs, the suggested installation order is n to 1
2. PS3 insert USB device, run reActPSN v2.4 from the XMB, and press the x button for about 6 seconds it will automatically generate some directories, also generate the PS2 default authorizations.
3. Copy PS2 ISO file to a USB drive under the /reActPSN/ISOPS2 directory. PS3 insert USB device, run reActPSN v2.4 from the XMB, and press the x button for about 6 seconds wait until it finish the import andreturns to XMB.

Depending on the number of PKG that you have installed, you can import up to 99 ISOs.
ISO support Chinese file name.
The absence of () is required to import the file name.
To import into a specifed PS2 container include the the number enclosed in parenthesis as prefix. For example, (1) Contra.ISO, (2) Chessmaster.ISO will be imported into slots 1 and 2 respectively.
Usually you only need to perform step 3, when you want to import and run a different PS2 ISO.
If the same game has been imported, it does not repeat the import to save time.
Unfortunately, the new PS2 game does not displays in XMB icon once a game is modified. Delete older PS2 saved data after importing, in Manage saved data (PS2) to shows the real PS2 TITLE ID and the file name of the ISO.
It's just a beta1 version, feedback of problems are welcome.
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.

Below are the ReActPSN v2.25 changes, roughly translated: The Triangle Crack mode was only for 355 & now has support for 4xx & more.
Do it some time ago and have not carefully test. Busy recently, first distributed instructions will write to you, not the installation files. Not too much testing.
1: Triangle crack mode support to CFW 440. [The triangle key] ordinary crack mode, do not modify the version number of the first crack full EBOOT.BIN running game, the second to break the rest of the game sprx edat.
The triangle key + L1] downgrade to 3.41 crack, the EBOOT key lib ver downgrade, edat4.0 downgrade. SFO is rather special, recognize only the installation of the version number the low version CFW crack high version of the game, first install the the a downgrade PARAM.SFO the pkg EBOOT to run after the break. [Triangle key + L2] downgrade to 4.20. Crack the game this way, starting from the earliest version 2.20, has been running on 4.20 CFW, do not need to re-signature.
2: [Key], automatic vsh patch function supports import authorization, support to CFW4.40. Support of 341 and 355 CFW and OFW, support CFW 360 more.
3: [Right] eight seconds CEXDEX conversion, support to CFW 430. Only 3.55 CEX before mandatory set QA, the rest of CFW detection QA, QA will not convert. I do not know why Rogero 440 v1.03 or sony reasons, the converted must/will become brick, the software does not support 440 CEX to DEX conversion. REMINDER- DO NOT USE #3 CEX To DEX CONVERSION ON CFW 440.
4: The annoying power have no fix at all. PS2 conversion speed raised to 12M/s, for now is the most easy conversion method. Import authorization was also a progress bar.
Old ReActPSN MD5: 0661ac803f1867726a913440e87f161f
New ReActPSN MD5: f2bb6f6806697126678b10d8648ea25e
Finally, below is another translation by aldostools, as follows: ReActPSN v2.25 - First OFFLINE PSN license generator. ReActPSN v2.x needs a vsh.self with an 8 byte patch. Some CFW like Rebug has the patch already applied.
Import new raps: press L1(6s) and run reActPSN, all usb exdata raps will be added to user reActPSN 2.0 xx xx
Backup raps: press L2(6s) and run reActPSN, all raps will be copied to usb/reActPSN/pubPSN/exdata folder.
ReActPSN v2.25 with support to fix edat 4.0
1- [Triangle] fix mode support up to CFW 4.40. Hold [Triangle] button for ordinary fix mode: do not modify the version number. Run the first time to crack all EBOOT.BIN, run the the second time to fix the sprx / edat in the games. Hold [Triangle] + [L1] to fix EBOOT with 3.41 keys, and fix edat 4.0.
Hold [Triangle] + [L2] to downgrade EBOOT to 4.20. Cracking the game this way, does re-sign the EBOOT and allows to boot games on 4.20 CFW and later.
2- Hold [Down] button on D-PAD for automatic patch of VSH import authorization . Supports 3.41, 3.55 CFW and OFW, 3.60 CFW 3.60 and 4.40 CFW.
3- Hold [Right] button on D-PAD for eight seconds for CEXDEX conversion. Support for CFW4.30. The console must be QA flagged on 3.55 CEX. The software does not support the 4.40 DEX converted and converting a Rogero 4.40 v1.03 will brick the console.
4- PS2 conversion speed improvements to 12MB/s, now is the most accessible and user-friendly conversion method.
Also added a progress bar when importing the authorizations (rap/edats) [holding L1 or renaming the user account to 'aa']
I am trying to get ReactPSN to work (first time trying). I am on Rogero 4.40 v1.02 with ReactPSN patch. I made the exdata folder on my usb (fat32), and i made separate user "aa" and ran ReactPSN. I had a lot of RAP files, so as expected, it took a while. It seemed to be successful, as the user name changed and I got the corruption screen blah blah blah. When I try to start a game, it doesn't work. Not only that, it messed up all my actual PSN games I had bought legitimately.
My questions are:
1. Is there a way to crack PSN NPDRM games without ReactPSN (those "fix" pkgs have to come from somewhere, how can I make my own?" ?
2. How can I get my old licenses back, or do I have to wipe and reinstall everything?
3. Why did reactpsn fail?
