40w ago - After over 60 pages of forum discussion, today I present a Tales of Graces F guide and repack tools for those interested in getting it running fully translated on PS3 Custom Firmware (CFW) 3.55, as follows:
What you will need:
JP release of the game (BLJS10093)
US release of the game (BLUS30903)
15GB of free space recommended
quickbms (aluigi.altervista.org/quickbms, first link at the top)
It will ask you for your preferred voices (jap/eng)
It will make a new file called rootR_fixed.cpk
It will make a new file called map0R_fixed.cpk
It will make a new file called map1R_fixed.cpk
Copy the japanese game to your PS3
Rename rootR_fixed.cpk to rootR.cpk and copy over the original
Rename map0R_fixed.cpk to map0R.cpk and copy over the original
Rename map1R_fixed.cpk to map1R.cpk and copy over the original
If you don't want japanese movies copy the american movie files (bink folder)
Copy the latest translated EBOOT over the original
Latest translated EBOOT:
English chest passwords*
Title Abilities & Effects
Typo fixes ("cloak fix")
An important translation change of Bench EXP/SP/HP titles
*for English chest passwords be sure to use the latest chest fixed files (Aug.15)

Gonna test on the Euro version too Mamu thanks for the work (I'am still working on my new home so I can't be often here) I'am glad that there is still some work on Graces. Can you try if possible to do what Niwakun did on the DLC of Graces F and remove every JIS character and test the DLC Titles on the US / EURO version. I'm not sure i can localize this type of character on the files...
Here's What I tested on JPN DLC on US base game
Attachments works just fine but wouldn't equip more than one due to, maybe the name is not existent that eboot do a string compare on attachment 1 to 2 to 3 since all attachments had the same blank name, thus making them the same item.
DLC Titles works just fine as long as you activate them with english name on them
Japanese DLC titles hangs because of JIS character are still present on them (I tried editing on them and yeah, it works, even with Japanese DLC on US base)
Same with Japanese Skits, because the dialogue is still written in Japanese
Any other DLC with English confirmation on them (if you are about to activate a DLC and the content of the DLC is displayed in english, that will work without any problems)
About Xillia 1 & 2 of course i got all the DLC done until today for the japanese version. If there is an Undub based on the JPN version we would be able to play them.
