    In this how to I will show you how to download roms from your favorite website.


    STEP 1. Download the plugins to download MP3s in safari. look here- http://www.ifans.com/forums/showthread.php?t=15756&highlight=download mp3 You only need the download plugin! Download MobileFinder, Term-vt100 and CLU - zip off installer. You may need the blaze source for some of these.

    Step 2. Go to your favorite roms download website and download any rom. Make sure you name it anything.zip

    STEP 3. Go to Term-vt100 and type in - cd ~/Downloads - Hit return. After that type in - unzip (what ever you named your rom).zip - It should extract.

    STEP 4. Go to MobileFinder, then go to Downloads. find the roms you just unziped. Select it then hit file>move. After that hit the ~ button in the top corner. Then hit Media>ROMs>Then what ever type of roms you download in the according folder. (EXAMPLE if it was a .gba game put it in GBA) After in the GBA folder, hit paste.

    STEP 5. TEST IT OUT! go to gbsphone or nes and play it!

    Do you mean ~ that thing? You type in "cd /var/root/Downloads" too if you need to.

    yeah. This will work for psx and any other ipod emulater to be made. And yes you can get the bios this way. Just move the bios in /Applications>Gbsphone or what ever emulater you need the bios for.
