Thread: Accessing files to add nes games
09-04-2008, 11:10 AM #1Accessing files to add nes games
How do i access the folder to put in my NES games?
I've watched loads of youtube videos and i've managed to get games from The Old Computer Dot Com |Roms|Emulators|Nes|Snes|Nintendo but now i'm not sure how to get to the folder to put them in on my iphone 3G.. i've seen people using a programme called Cyberduck but that's for macs? Are there any ways of doing it on XP?
Also, you name the folder 'ROMs' right? And do you add all the files directly to that folder or do you make another folder inside ROMs?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

Go to general (on your iphone)/ wireless/ the blue button next to your wireless network and that should tell you your ip address.
Host name: your ip
User name: root
Leave all other search fields alone! Also, turn your autolock off, it will interrupt your data transfer and make winscp drop the connection.

Not physically connected. You need to download openssh from cydia. That will allow you to wirelessly access your phone.

okay i have done everything you all said, and i got my mates wifi password that lives over the road.. but it still won't login i think it's because my wifi connection isn't constant so i think i'm gonna have to do it in his house. i don't have wifi at my house.

Your phone has to be connected to a WIFI environment. If it is, then go to setting, wifi, etc... and get the IP address.. Usually something like 192.168.X.X
Afterwards you have to go to a computer on the SAME WIFI environment and log into the IPHONE using SSH...
Ip adress will be the one the IPHONE is displaying
username is root
password is alpine
Then navigate to VAR/Mobile/Media/Roms/NES and drop all of your *.nes files...
I notice you state you have your friends WIFI... well if you iphone is connected to your friends WIFI you will also need a computer connected to the same WIFI for this to work.Major credit to the Programmers.
Your efforts makes the IPHONE that much better. Thank You! Without you, There is no Us!!
I believe in beta testing for free and paying for Smooth integrated, Compatible, and functioning Apps.

I've done it! It's eassyy, just i needed to be on my mates laptop in his house to be able to login.
I've done the NES and the GBA, so i've got both with games now Also, did my mates too.
thanks for the help.
Also, i got my games for the GBA from doperoms.com if anyones having trouble finding good ones.. doesnt work unless you add the .bin file.
For extra help go on GB Advance On IPHONE - Iphone NES | Iphone SNES | Iphone PSX -Ipod Roms and Games and Roms! GB ADVANCE which also has the .bin file you need to replace
