an issue with Reactpsn
Hello everyone(i hope im posting in the right place), i know that this is a long post and i appologize but please bear with me.
theres an issue that i've been having with reactpsn for a long while now, and i hope that i can receive support here i have done extensive research and tried nearly everything, here is my predicament
i have been attempting to use reactpsn since its release, but to no avail, in my very first attempt at it long long ago i had no act.dat. but i tried reactpsn with patched vsh on rebug 3.55.something. there was actually network access during that time (before that huge gap where we were left with no psn) with simple bypasses such as old versions of f*ckpsn even at one point i forgot i think it was dns or proxy bypasses(lol).
so anyways after trying reactpsn with no avail i simply tried to go download something requiring activation always resulted with an error though. then i just left the ps3 hacking world for a long period of time, when i returned, it miraculously worked and i got an act.dat!!! but reactpsn didnt(aa user had correct number of activated raps, rifs showed up in exdata folder in dev_hdd0/home/). i tried EVERYTHING (even tried editing xregistry) at that point (i had act.dat in both main and reactpsn, act.key in both, and reactsys.key in home folder) i later gave up again (i was able to stay long periods away from my cfw ps3 because i have an ofw ps3 as well ), but then recently i returned to my cfw ps3 at around october or early november, messed around with react psn a little(no luck), updated to 4.21 cfw, etc. but i mostly logged on for just online play methods returning at that time. then, for one reason or another i "restored default settings" unlinking my psn account with my user and losing the act.dat (didnt think it would be an issue since we had psn access), shortly after(1-2 days), boom, got hit with the ban hammer (2 unfortunate events in a row... my luck) i currently, though, have several backed up xregistries(from when i was attempting to edit them) and a backup of my entire "dev_hdd0/home" (i made backups of both of those things knowing i would eventually at some point in time do something stupid like this (but how was i supposed to know i would get banned))folder which does contain my old act.dat. simply copying it over doesn't seem to work at all(dissapears on reboot),
so basically in short here is my situation. i never got reactpsn working, currently have no act.dat in exdata folder, i am banned with unlinked account(i have since relinked old system account with new psn account by psunban, no act.dat though) and i am currently on rex 4.21.2 cfw, which should have patched vsh, which to my knowledge prevents the deletion of act.dat(apparantly not in my situation). i dont think that i can use a working psunban to get act.dat since i cant activate my system with it, only first 2 users can (correct me if im wrong), i have heard of people getting reactpsn working on ps3s that were never online by using rebug (which im currently on, and was on back in 3.55 days)so i would highly appreciate it if someone could help me in my situation or give me advice on anything i can do on 4.21 or 3.55, or even 4.30 (why not)
