    I used ipodtouchmaster's youtube video to do this.

    I downloaded the sims 2 off of frozen-roms.net. I used winscp to get into my itouch. I got into the media folder, I created a file name ROMs(yes, it's exactly like that in winSCP) and created another folder named GBA(again exactly like that). I transferred the game to the GBA folder, set permission to 755. Then I downloaded the gba_bios file, put it under applications, gPsphone, set all of the files in the folder to 755. I restarted my springboard and once I open up gPsphone, the message that says I need games doesn't pop up but under all four tabs(all games, saved games, bookmarks, and most recent) they are all blank.

    Please help.

    You didn't do something right
    sounds like the bios file is in the right place

    try another game rom

    it has to be exactly

    /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA/(rom file here)
