    What's a emulator?
    A emulator is a program that duplicates a function of one system to another.

    How does the emulator involve my ipod/iphone?
    By jailbreaking you can run classic consoles like playstation 1, nintendo 64, NES, gameboy color, gameboy advance, and few more.

    Well where do i get these emulators?
    You can them from Cydia/Rock from the ZodTTD source. After installing them you open the app and run your ROM.

    What's a ROM?
    ROM stands for Read-only memory, which is used by gaming consoles and other media devices for their use.

    What kind of emulators are there for ipod touch/iphone?
    How do I use the ROM's with the emulator?
    After you've downloaded the ROM you want, you will need some knowledge with SSH. Once you've gotten into your selected file broswer, head to this folder /var/mobile/media/ROMs/(Emulator you're using)

    Why is the game's sound poor?
    ROMs aren't perfect copies of the games so you will have some bad things on them. Another is your ipod/iphone isn't a gameboy color or nintendo 64 itself.

    If I missed anything please post here or PM me. I will add it and give credit to you.

    This guide is a little sketchy, you do encourage them to get ROMs, so Idk. I would expand the guide as well. Maybe give a little summary of each emulator out, what you would need with it, and rate it overall.

    ROMs aren't illegal if you already own the game. I don't use emulators so, I may be wrong.

    I thought there was a big discussion, that even if you do own the game, having the ROM is illegal. I may be wrong.

    ROMs are illegal no matter what. EVen if you buy one you only bought that copy, even having 100 copies of a game and having 1 ROM of the same game is illegal since you didnt pay for it

    As I thought, so I would advise you to take the part out about finding a ROM. Just post to obtain one, now where/how.
