    Hey guys,

    I updated to the 1.1.3 jailbreak (originally I used NateTrue's but I went back and used the dev team jailbreak for the second time around) and installed the NES App... now, the NES application is having trouble saving settings and none of the icons along the bottom (All Games, Bookmarks, etc) show up as if the app has some problem. I've uninstalled both the App and the ROMs for it but nothing changed. Literally every time I close out of it and open it again it restores to default game settings. Anybody else having this problem or better yet, know how to fix it? Thanks.

    The icons problems are related to the jb or the emulator code.

    Weird... I'd still suggest upgrading to 2.0.4 as it was meant for 1.1.3 and is running fine on my iPod Touch though.

    i have never installed an app manually... so i tried earlier just putting the NES.app folder in my Applications directory... are there any other steps i should take? i put it in the folder (2.0.4) and it crashed every time i went into it... it would go to a white screen for a few seconds then drop me back to the springboard... am i missing a step?

    Yuppers - you have to access the information of the directory (usually as simple as right-clicking and opening info). The resulting window should have a list of user permissions. Set it to 755 and make sure it applies it to NES.app and all the files inside of it (apply permissions recursively in other words).

    I know this might be in french, but I'll do my best to help

    What program are you using to access your iPod with?

    You need to set the permissions in the Application folder to 0755, as mentioned above.

    BUT! I just figured this out! There is another step you have to do! Go where you have your ROMs saved. It should be in Media/ROMS (Find your media folder, it could be anywhere depending on what kind of fixes you have applied for 1.1.3)

    Then change the permissions of the ROMs folder and everything in there to 0777. THIS will fix your issue with settings! (Mine still shows blank icons tho, so go figure.)

    I am so keeping my fingers crossed on all these 1.1.3 issues being resolved... why does Apple have to be so prickly?

    Anyway, Bluetiger's right, just keep in mind that the ROMs folder for NES ROMs is NOT in the same place as for PSX or GBA currently. The website I linked you to will help you find out where to place the ROMs.

    Okay, next round: try changing the permissions throughout the NES.app to 777 as well as the permissions for the folder (ROMs\NES) and files (each rom). I'll check mine in the meantime to see if I can do settings myself. I haven't been using the emulator lately.
