After failing to get v2.23 ReActPSN working on 4.30.1 and 4.21.2 Rebug's, I found out that the ReActPSN ELF had hardcoded dev_usb000 paths.
Since my usb path (and I would assume others too, since it's referenced by Rebug themselves) is dev_usb006, ReActPSN wouldn't work.
I have tried this on Rebug 4.21.2 only, but as long as your usb device is named dev_usb006, and your vsh.self is patched, I see no reason this wouldn't work on other 4.x CFW's.
The same issues as with v2.23 remain. I.e. a message that the system was shut down improperly and that it has to repair filesystem after ReActPSN reboots the PS3.
THIS FIX IS FOR 4.x CFW USERS WHOSE USB DEVICE IS NAMED dev_usb006 ONLY!
Of course you install and run this on your own risk. Credits go to the original creators.
Enjoy the party!

From Elegant: It's basically official links from PSN the same any person would download on a PS3 from PSN. Then it has the rap files so you can activate it using ReactPSN. No, you cannot use this on retail as you can't run custom homebrew and most likely never will. And no this will NEVER have fixes. A rap file is a VERY SMALL hex string that is VERY easy to store along with it's PSN links. Fixes can range from 1MB to 20MB as opposed to basically less than 1KB for rap files, no one wants to host all your fixes on their server.

I tried everything to make this work, but I will keep getting the 'reactPSN 2.00 unknown cfw' error.
*I'm on Rogero 4.30CFW v2.05
*Followed all the steps correctly, after activation of the psn content I made the user *aa* did put a formatted fat32 usb stick in the most right port with ' reActPSN_v2.23_CFW421.pkg' and installed it and then opened it with R1 pushed. After the my console wont reboot but instead turn back to xmb and the application name has changed to 'reactPSN 2.00 unknown cfw!' .
Any tips for what I can do?
1: my console is banned and im using the unban 0.3.pkg so I can use psn again (it still works)
2: user 00000001 is the banned account
3. user 00000003 is the new account with the activated psn content im using at this moment
Just to make ppl know, if I remember well ReActPSN use dev_usb000 because when you format your usb drive and put only your activation files, the ps3 will use dev_usb000 by default... its not about the firmware you use...
OR connect your external drive to the right port on your PS3. Do not connect multiple USB device , only the drive which contains the exdata folder with .rap files.
