    Hello iPod touch fans. Ive added many sources to my Installer and there is many different categories, and there is also many other spots to download gpSPhone. I downloaded the gpSPhone from: iRom FuSiOn Repository and i am able to use some ROMS from one category but when i install other Roms they dont show up on my games list on the gpSPhone but they are installed does anyone know whats wrong?

    What firmware are you on?
    If you are on 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 then the Roms should be in var/root/media/ROMs/GBA (this exact spelling)
    If on 1.1.3 or 1.1.4 then the Roms should be in var/mobile/media/ROMs/GBA (this exact spelling)

    I would suggest to download gpsPhone from http://zodttd.com/repo/ since he is the developer and the new version looks for Roms in both file paths.

    Also make sure the Rom's permissions are set to 755. SSH to find this out. More info on SSH here

    Good luck

    For gpsPhone yes, but for gameboy I don't think one is required.

    To get the bios, just google it (it is illegal for anyone to post it up on the site)

    For GBA, unzip the roms and then there will be files that end in .gba. Those will be the ones to drop in ~/Media/ROMs/GBA. After you drag and drop them, you will need to right-click and change permissions to 755.

    That should be it.
