    Ok I have a painful experience downloading roms for gpsphone. I have just about figured out all the problems along the way, but this one has baffled me. After a series of roms simply disappearing of my ipod seemingly randomly I decided to have an experiment to determine what the problem was. So I installed roms one at a time through the Irom source in installer, and I was doing fine, downloaded a couple of roms until a downloaded super mario 3. This rom decided to wipe all the roms off my ipod (not just stop them from showing up - deletes them) and replace them with one super mario 3 rom. So, trying to salvage my sanity, I uninstalled that rom, and it didn't bring them back, I was left with no roms. Any help before I seriously harm myself?

    The super mario 3 rom isn't deleting the other roms. This happened to me also..

    The reason the other roms disappeared was because the super mario rom made another GBA folder. And so gpSPhone looks for the roms in the folder that the mario rom made.

    The other roms are probably in the folder: /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA
    The folder that the mario rom made is probably: /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/GBA

    To fix it, add Ste Packaging's source in Installer
    http://repo.smxy.org/iphone-apps/

    Then find and download the app 'MobileFinder'.

    Open the app.
    Then tap 'settings' at the top.
    And then turn on 'show hidden files'

    Now find /var/mobile/Media/ROMs
    tap the 'gba' folder (then it should be highlighted blue)
    tap 'file' on the bottom left
    tap 'delete'

    Now it's all done. Press the home button.

    All your roms should be in gpSPhone.
