    ? Well

    I'm so confused. I want to be able to hit NES.app on the my main screen and then have it show a list of games....and then add games when I find new ones.

    How do you do this?

    Thanks

    Well, it means secure shell. But you don't have to use that. Just google for a program called iBrickr (thats really how it's spelled) Download, unzip and run ibrickr with your ipod connected via usb.( make sure itunes is closed). Unzip your ROM. Using ibrickr make a folder called ROMs in the media folder. Inside ROMs make another folder called NES. Copy the unzipped game into the Nes file. Disconnect and reboot your ipod.(in that order). Open NES app and play your game.

    Hmm a little confusing..... I like that IBrickr idea though.

    Can you spread the rules out and explain it a little better?

    And once I hit the NES icon on my touch, will I be able to choose from a list what game I want to play at that certain time?

    Yes you can choose which game to play. Search the forum for ibrickr. I'm sure someone has explained it better than I can. Also check out Danls92 suggestion.

    Can you access your computer through SSH?

    If so, open the ROM, and drag the actual file to a convenient folder. Then SSH onto your ipod, and go to Media then make a file called "ROMs" and in the folder make another folder called "GBA" and place the ROM into that folder.
