    I have the pokemon ruby on my ipod touch but I can't seem to save it. I saved it first in the game then I clicked "yes" when I left the game and it asked me if I wanted to save it. However, when I go to the "Saved Games" bit, it's not there!!

    (I tried "yes" and "yes overwrite" Neither worked)

    A little help please..

    all u should have to to
    is go into an SSH program (such as winSCP)
    and set the permissions to the GBA folder to "755"

    Make sure you are changing permissions to the rom folder. I.E "GBA"

    I have the same problem. SSH is not a problem, nor is location. I can play old saved games that I have loaded onto my Touch. But I can't seem to save games.

    it wouldnt work for me when i set the permissions to 755, but when i set them to 777 it worked perfectly

    i just set the ROMs folder to 777 and GBA to 777 and it works now, so try that dude
