With this application, it is now possible to convert RIF files on the PlayStation 3 console to RAP files.

From mikufans: Hello, recently my friend released a tool: rif2rap. It does help those who want to share the rap. And there is no need to downgrade the PS3 concole to 3.55 to export the rap. Just run this rif2rap.exe, and get the rap.

Tested OK by some of my friends. The Tutorial is so easy that no need to explain here.
