    How To get GBA games on the ipod touch!

    After making my tutorial on how to jailbreak the ipod touch using iLiberty which you can find here.i had people ask me about getting GBA games on the touch so I will teach you how on this tutorial. After the GBA tutorial i will give you a quick tutorial on how to get SNES, NES and GENESIS games.

    *Warning* I am not responsible for anything that happens to your ipod touch (general warning) and this is considered illegal unless you actually own the game you have the rom for. (There is not really a risk in my opinion because a lot of people have done this....there is even a section on this site dedicated to gpSPhone.


    Well, lets begin!

    First you will need to have a jailbroken ipod touch (2.0 will not work for this) and you will need installer.

    1. Open up installer and go to the bottom right-hand corner where it says "Sources" and tap it.

    You will want to go to edit at the top and then click add and add the following resources...

    iappcat.com/r/11863
    repo.iromrepo.com

    After you have added the sources click refresh and wait for it to refresh.

    2. Go to "Install" on the lower left-hand side and tap it.

    3. If you scroll up and down you will see five new folders named

    -Chock Full Of Roms
    -iROM GBA
    -iRom Genesis
    -iROM SNES
    -iROM TOOLs

    If you do not have these folders then you entered the name wrong and you will want to go back to sources and make sure you have the right source-name typed in.

    4. Go to "iRom TOOLs" and scroll to "gpSphone" and install it. Go back to "iROM TOOLs" and install "GBA Bios".

    5. You can now go home if you want and you will see a purple icon with a GBA in it.

    6. Go back to installer and back to install and scroll to "Chock full of ROMs" or "iROM GBA" and select a game to download. After the game downloads go back to the home screen and select gpSPhone and you will see you have a game now! Congratulations! You can play the games but you cannot save them. If you want to save them then check out my tutorials on it...

    For saving a GBA game and ssh-ing games into the ipod touch go to this tutorial by me here.


    (If you still need help then contact me or leave a comment)

    7. Now that you can play GBA games you may want to play old-school games so go into installer, to install and then scroll down to iROM Tools.

    8. In "iROM Tools you will see a folder called "Other Rom Players"...install it.

    8. Go to the "Games" folder and scroll to NES and install it. Then go to all packages and go to "genesis4iphone" and install is then look for "snes" and install that. You then can download games and multiple gamepacks from "Chock full of roms" and the other iRom folders. Enjoy!

    If you still need help then do not hesitate to ask!


    Feedback is always appreciated!
