    Hi I am new at this forum (my first post). Sorry if I misplace the thread.
    I have a problem with the emulator gpsphone. I have a ipodtouch 2gen 3.0 firmware. I jailbroke it with redsn0w 0.8 and installed ICY.
    So the problem is that I cannot see my roms.
    I cannot really use WINSCP (i have windows vista home premium) it crashes 6 out of 10 times i try to connect and almost every time I try to

    browser folders.
    I use iphonebrowser to get on my ipod touch.
    The good thing is i found a video that showed me that i could download the gameboy4iphone.deb file and put it in

    var/root/media/Cydia/AutoInstall. I did that when I did that I downloaded that gba bios file and put it in the gameboy4iphone.app folder in

    aplications. Then I put another copy in var/mobile/media/ROMs/GBA. The second source is from Cydia installer there is a small guide in the

    comments.
    I restarted my ipod. The Icon wasn't there. Restarted again. Was there. Good I opened it worked fine.
    Went back to iphonebrowser and put two roms (Fire Emblem Sealed Sword and Pokemon Emerald) in three directories.
    var/mobile/media/ROMs/GBA
    var/root/media/ROMs/GBA
    private/var/mobile/Media/ROMs/GBA

    I Restarted my ipod and the roms will not show up in GPSphone.
    By the way under cydia installed packages, GPSphone will show up but I cannot update it because of HTTP FORBDEN error.
    I scribled this fast so there might be mistakes.

    Help will be greatly appriciated.

    Getting the .deb from elsewhere is Illegal. Please buy it from the Cydia Store.

    Why are there tutorials on how to install gpsphone on this forum then. It should not make a difference if you download the app or the deb.
    And I also Thought that this app was free.

    Nope GPSPhone costs 5.99 from the cydia store. Those must have been old posts.

    Then you should really think about deleting those posts.
    I will ask somewhere else for help.

    Theres your problem. You downloaded the gameboy emulator, not the gameboy advance emulator. No wonder the games wont work =p
