Hi,

*** Updated for GTA V Update 1.23 ***

Many modders are looking for proper instructions to convert GTAV from BLUS to BLES simply because BLES has better support and mods. So here is a tutorial to guide you step by step through the process.

1. Extract contents of the downloaded package on a USB drive (extract them in the same folder to avoid confusion).

2. Open Multiman (or equivalent) go to PS3 File manager and go to the following folder:
HDD_DEV00/GAMES/BLUS31156-[Grand Theft Auto V]/PS3_GAME/

Replace PARAM.SFO with PARAM.SFO supplied in “GAMES” folder that you have extracted on your USB Drive.

Similarly, replace “EBOOT.BIN” located in HDD_DEV00 /GAMES/ BLUS31156-[Grand Theft Auto V]/PS3_GAME/USRDIR/

With EBOOT.BIN supplied in “games” folder of your extracted package.

3. Once both files are replaced, Rename your BLUS31156-[Grand Theft Auto V] folder to
BLES01807-[Grand Theft Auto V]

Note: Write down the “BLUSXXXX” (if your BLUS version is different for any reason)as you may need it in next few steps

4. Go to HDD_DEV00/game/. Within this folder you should have two folders: BLUS31156 and BLUS31156_install

5. Copy PARAM.SFO located in “game/_install” folder from extracted package and paste it over the existing PARAM.SFO in BLUS31156_install folder.

6. Rename your BLUS31156_install folder to BLES01807_install

7. Go the BLUS31156 folder and replace PARAM.SFO with PARAM.SFO supplied in “game” folder of extracted package

8. Locate EBOOT.BIN in BLUS31156/game/USRDIR/ and replace it with EBOOT.BIN supplied in “game” folder of the extracted package.

9. Rename BLUS31156 folder to BLES01807

10. Exit File manage, Refresh and Load game through Multiman. Game will download updates and Now you should be on BLES.

Package now contains CEX & DEX conversion folders.

Remember: Make backups of all your files that you are about to replace.

Warning: All your Game saves will be lost due to the region change. You can download a BLES game save for GTA and store it on your PS3 to avoid replaying the tutorial.

** All the haters can click on "back" button of their browser and pretend this thread doesn't exist **

Note: If you are getting a 80010017 or any other incompatibility errors than follow these steps:

1. Delete update/content files from Game Data Utility.
2. Clear your game cache by using Multiman.
3. Manually update game through multiman's update function and install the new update manually.


When you will run your game from XMB, it will download and replace all the missing or corrupted files and you should be able to start the game with no further issues.


Hope This Helps!

Shouldn't have to change to a debugged eboot.bin if on CEX. Correct? I didn't change the eboot and converted with no issues.

If you have CCAPI than you don't need debugged eboot for DEX either. I have been using regular eboots.

like raymo said.. go into multiman or whatever manager you use, hover over gta 5 and look for the option to copy game to HDD and then start over if you like
