    EDIT: Just found out this is only 1.1.1 compatible. If you do this on any higher firmware you will just be wasting space.

    Basically, what this does is it allows you to download ROMs off of the Internet. Please note that once you install this, all you have to do is download a ROM and unzip. You do not have to repeat this whole process all over again.

    A couple days ago I was scrolling through the NES emulator section when I came across this...

    Tried this my self with a SNES ROM, a NES ROM, a GBA ROM, and a Genesis ROM. They all worked perfectly well.

    I didn't find a post like this in the emulator section yet so I thought I should put it up here.

    Make sure you have these before beginning:

    Blaze's Ultimate Sources Part 1 (Add this source: http://blazecompany.googlepages.com/blaze.xml)

    File Download Plugin (Attached)

    NetServices (Provided you installed Blaze's Sources - Found in Installer)

    Modified SendFile.app (Attached)

    CLU - zip (Provided you installed Blaze's Sources Part 1 - Found in Installer)
    Remember that CLU - zip ONLY UNZIPS, it does not extract any other file type

    Squid (Only for users who add apps VIA Total Commander - Found in Installer)

    MobileFinder (Used to relocate ROMs to the correct directory - Found in Installer)

    Term-vt100 (Used with CLU - zip to unzip ROMs - Found in Installer)

    One thing you might also want to check is to make sure your "MobileFinder" can view system files. You can change this in the "Settings" tab.


    This is a long procedure to install, but is worth it in the end.


    The first thing you want to do is extract and add the Modified SendFile.app and File Download Plugin folders to your iPod. Put the "File Download Plugin" and "QuickTime Plugin" folders in "System/Library/Internet Plug-Ins." Put the "SendFile.app" folder in "Applications." Pretty easy right?

    SSH users: Change permissions on every file in every folder to 777. Restart your iPod when finished.

    Total Commander users: Add the folders to the correct directories, and use "Squid" to change the permissions on every file in every folder (Just make sure there is an "x" in every green box for each item, and hit "Apply" before you hit the back button). Restart your iPod when finished.

    Open up the latest version of "NetServices." At the bottom, you will see 5 tabs (Built-In, Add-Ons, Settings, Help, and Information). Click the one labeled "Add-Ons." There should now be an option labeled "File Share Plug-In." Set that option to "ON" if it is not already (This may take a few seconds). You should now be able to download files through Safari

    .

    Next install a ROM for NES, SNES, GBA, or Genesis ON YOUR IPOD'S SAFARI BROWSER (When you click a download link, there are two lime-green buttons that say "Download" and "Change File Name." Please note that when changing the filename the file must always end in .zip). When done use "MobileFinder" to make sure that the file you downloaded is in "var/root/Downloads."

    Now for the unzipping part

    .
    Open up "Term-vt100." type in "cd ~/Downloads" EXACTLY as this is.
    ^
    (There's a space between "cd" and "~")

    A # should appear under the line you typed.
    Next type "unzip (Name of your ROM).zip"
    ^
    (There's a space between "unzip" and "(Name of your ROM).zip")

    Once that is finished, your ROM should be unzipped

    Please Register or Log in to view images

    , BUT YOU'RE NOT DONE YET.
    Open MobileFinder and go back to "var/root/Downloads." You should now see your unzipped ROM and your zipped one. Delete the zipped one to save space. In the bottom left, hit "File," and then hit "Move" go to the directory where the ROM belongs, and hit "Paste" there.

    Finished

    You should now see your ROM in the emulator. I really hope this helps.

    Fine, we'll stop replying to your posts then =p

    Anyway, it seems to me like just SSHing into the iPod and dragging and dropping is a lot less complicated than this is but that could just be because i'm used to it.

    I guess all the power to ya for posting a new way =]

    Well really, once you install this, you just download a ROM, unzip it in the terminal, and move it to the right directory. Done. Basically the same steps you would take to SSH a ROM, but without the computer.

    Hey,
    Kyle right?
    Anyways,
    Just a question,
    The tut you put up with adding roms to your touch without the computer,
    I've got one question,
    How long is it supposed to be loading for when it restarts???
    I've finished everything,
    Changed all permissions to 777,
    Did this all through winscp,
    Openssh,
    Terminal,
    Got all apps,
    Basicly,
    Everything i was supposed to do is done,
    Now I restarted it like you said i should,
    And thats where I am,
    It's been restarting for about 45 minutes.
    It's just on the mac apple icon on a black background when the itouch is loading the system.
    I'm currently running a completely jailbroken 1.1.3,
    No added apps that aren't 100% necessary,
    Only one that I added that wasn't on your list was the blaze ultimate sources for installer.
    Sooooo,
    Yeah.
    These are basicly the questions I was wondering.
    Is there something I did wrong?
    Anyone else come across this problem?
    Anything I can do to fix it?
    Is it normal?
    If so, How long do I have to wait?
