What i do not understand is -- why 3.55 eboots need to be resigned for 4.21. For instance, I can play an older game that is signed for say, 2.42, on 3.55 just fine... so why can't we load 3.55 on 4.21 ? I thought it was just that you can't play the newer versions on the lower versions... unless 3.55s are signed with some blacklisted key?
3.55 homebrew EBOOTs are not signed using the same private key as Sony use for 3.55 EBOOTs. Geohot created his own private key based on the information found by failoverflow. The hole that failoverflow found in Sony's security which allowed this was fixed by Sony in later F/Ws.

I do not think the vsh.self is already patched we would have to patch it ourselves. Not sure this is possible with the current tools, do we have the keys to unself and rebuild the vsh.self? Does MultiMan support read/writing from/to dev_flash on 4.21?

As to the second part of your question, I do not see why we could not use this software to resign reactpsn for use on the 4.21 firmware.

unself vsh.self.0 vsh.self.elf
if *(addr)==old data then *(addr)=new data
only 2 addr, 8byte data fixed in one vsh.self.elf
self_rebuilder vsh.self.elf vsh.self vsh.self.0
copy vsh.self to /dev_blind/vsh/module/vsh.self
I think you would have to be a very brave man to attempt it or have a H/W flasher.
I am still on 3.55 so can not try this.
Looks like somebody has already done the resigning for reActPSN v2.25 and it is available on another well know site (hax, cough). Still do not see how it will work unless the vsh is patched!!!
Okay, just did the update to 4.21CFW successfully. Using this, would my next course of action be attempting to load everything I have, and patching the things that don't load? (Homebrew, PSN games, and Backup games alike?)
if u dont wanna update that means ur a p#ssy not smart haha... im on 4.21 cfw now and the only bugs are some other games doesnt work like saints row 3 cause it was patched to work on the old kmeaw 3.55 i know if i changed it to the original eboot it will work fine.. well its not even a bug and showtime doesnt work it also need to be signed with 4.21 keys but this firmware doesnt have bugs like some of u are saying its almost like the early 3.55 firmware like kakarotos or somethng it just needs few patches but atleast i can finally play new games
What does this mean? I need to retrieve my games that I have saved on my hdd and move it to my portable hdd and then put the Eboot from this app in X 3.55 game, correct?
Please don't try to make people feel inferior because they haven't updated to rogeros beta cfw, its already been proven that it can brick consoles.

i'm not a cat...i actually have a cat that is pretty ballsy. he rolls, rubs up next to, etc. my decent sized dog (about 90 pounds or a bit more).
so, i guess watch that clearly bashing statement. not everyone bricked their console, but it's still not smart even if your console didn't brick. according to reports, i could probably get on the cfw but the gamble is just stupid when a better version should be released sometime soon. whoop-di-doo, you get it a few days, maybe a week before other people...
Never there but always going back
I resigned reactpsn today myself and it quit back to XMB saying "unknown CFW".
