    Okay so I'm on 1.1.4, I got NES to work great.

    I have tried putting gpsPhone in /Applications and I've included the Bios and changed all permissions to 755

    I've put the roms in /private/var/mobile/Media/ROMs/GBA but when I go to gpsPhone on the ipod, I simply get a white screen, and it takes me back to the home page.

    Please, what am I doing wrong here?

    GBA Roms go in the private/var/root/Media/ROMs folder

    Go to wiki and go to The all hackz and add it to your sources and it will have this source that adds almost all the sources and add it and you will most likley find it

    Create a "Media" folder? It isn't that hard.

    I don't really know what you said, but I don't see how adding a source will solve the problem.

    And I have searched the forum

    If creating a Media folder is all it takes then thanks for the help, I will try this when I get home

    your not going up enough mate. Your in the private directory, it's a mistake made alot.

    when your in winSCP keep pressing the file up button until you cannot go any further then try again and you will se where you went wrong.

    I go back all the way, and then go into private/root....etc. It worked for NES, and that's the directory I am being told to put it in

    ...I tried creating a Media folder in /private/var/root and then created the ROMs/GBA folder but I still get a white screen when trying to use gpsphone. I just get a white screen, and it returns to the home page after about 30 secs.

    Okay i see your problem
    Go back allll the way till you see Applications folder on the first row
    go to this folder
    /var/root/Media <--- if media folder isn't created, create it! (capitalization matters)
    Then create folder "ROMs", place it in /var/root/Media
    Then create folder "GBA", place it in /var/root/Media/ROMs <---(thats the folder you created from the step above)
    Drag and drop .gba games into folder and you're all set =D =D
    i dunno why these other people are misleading to the wrong folder to place your Roms lol

    i hope these instructions are clear enough, feel free to PM me for help =)
