    This might not TOTALLY have to do with GBA ROMs, but it is a crucial question as to where I should place them.

    Ok, so I've tried numerous ways to get ROMs onto my iTouch and all my methods seemed to have the same problem... when I go to Library/Media Folder in anything but MobileFinder, I get:

    Library:
    > DockSwap
    .....> Backup
    > Lockdown
    .....> activation_records
    .....> pair_records
    > Preferences
    > Summerboard
    .....> Themes
    .........> Customize
    .........> [List of My Themes]

    Media:
    > MooCowMusic
    .....> Band
    .....> Instruments

    Obviously I'm supposed to have a much different layout according to all the tutorials I've been following.

    I'm supposed to place a gba_bios.bin in the Library> Applications> gpSPhone.app, but looking at the above, this folder doesn't exist to me.

    When I click the "..." above Library in WinSCP or iShare I get:

    > Applications
    .....> [List of My Applications]
    > Fonts
    .....> Cache
    > Keychains
    > cron
    .....> tabs
    > db
    .....> dhcpclient
    .....> dyld
    .....> timezone
    > empty
    > log
    .....> ppp
    .....> sa
    > logs
    .....> AppleSupport
    .....> Baseband
    .....> CrashReporter
    .........> Baseband
    .........> Panics
    > mobile
    .....> Glitter
    .....> Library (I have taken out the directories inside the below subdirectories- they're unneccesary)
    .........> AddressBook
    .........> AlohaSoft
    .........> Caches
    .........> Calendar
    .........> CallHistory
    .........> Cookies
    .........> Customize
    .........> Customize2
    .........> Installer
    .........> KLores
    .........> Keyboard
    .........> Mail
    .........> Maps
    .........> MobileFinder
    .........> Notes
    .........> Planet-iPhones
    .........> Preferences
    .........> RagingThunder
    .........> SMS
    .........> Safari
    .........> SummerBoard
    .........> Voicemail
    .........> YouTube
    .....> Media (all submenus of media and below have been left out)
    > msgs
    > preferences
    > root
    > run
    > tmp
    > vm

    Basically what I'm asking is, why do I have my main files under "mobile" instead of the standard "root"? I used BossTools, could that have done it? Is it safe to place my files in the "mobile" folder?

    Thanks

    You have installed the emulator right? I only ask cause so many times, the simplest thing is somehow overlooked.
