    I think your only option is to use a ps3 and download again your games, or you can try to make a qcma backup and use the registry hack to activate it.
    Not sure the last will work

    If I learned enough from following @Voxel Studios Act.dat is used to access the vita store

    When the Vita is off, press and hold the R button with the Playstation button at the same time. Then press Power button and wait for a bit. When you're there, you'll get 5 options

    • restart system
    • Rebuild Database
    • Format Memory Card
    • Restore the PS Vita System
    • Update System Software
    Click on rebuild database and tell me where that leads

    act.dat is the activation file.

    Only option is to restore a backup of that file or use the ps3 and qcma trick.

    Nope. As @Cinnamon said, Act.dat is the activation file for the Vita, and cannot be restored unless you had a backup of it, or update the system software then reactivate through system settings (not recommended), or through a PS3.

    Nothing else you can do about it until we get firmware spoofers for PSN access on lower FWs.

    Woops. :o Maybe I take having a ps3 for granted. They're dirt cheap now.
