    For obvious reasons, i've ignored googling since all the discussions i come across date back at least two years @.@ and this entails to only the iphone 5 and ipad 4 which i feel are probably the only i devices advanced enuf to even qualify.

    Anyway, from wat i've read previously years back when i got my first iphone in 2009, many have stated one main reason for WHY ipods/iphones/ipads cant run a DS emualtor, if ever created properly: processing power.

    WELL, this is 2013! We got the iphone 5, ipad 4 all with UBER processors that even rival the DS.

    EVEN the andriod phones have it, why not the i devices? I've seen a Samsung Glaxy S III run pokemon DIAMOND very very smoothly, maybe even better than my gsphone!

    Which is why i'm confused now: dun tell me an ipad 4 or iphone 5 has CRAPPIER processing capability than a Samsung PHONE?

    So can it be done? Back in 08,09 we lamented that the ipods abd iphones were way too slow, which was true. How about NOW?

    Actually it seems that you don't even need to jailbreak for it, as there is a DS emulator available in the AppStore and you can get it for $2.99, and it was released way back in (Aug 13, 2009) I haven't personally try it, so I don't know anything else about it, any way, its name is DS Double Sys

    A simulator is not an emulator.

    The real thing vs a fake. That's the best way I can describe it.

    So "DS Double Sys" is considered as an simulator or an emulator?! sorry I am still a little confused as I always thought that those words means the same thing :oops:

    A DS processor is something crappy that runs at 66MHz. iDevice processors have never "rivaled" DS processors.

    Its a simulator. It doesn't have the capability to run real DS games. A real emulator would
