    Default Gameboy Advanced Emulator for iPhone/iPod Touch
    For all of you that want to play gameboy advanced games on your iphone, the time has come!! The folks at zodttd.com have released gpSPhone, a gameboy advanced emulator.

    This should be available via installer now. If you want to install it manually here is the link

    Place gba_bios.bin (GBA BIOS) in /Applications/gpSPhone.app/ do not ask for or share for links for this . . . you will be banned if you do
    Place your roms in /var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA
    we will not provide roms here, or link to them, so don't even ask, don't post links to roms . . . . once again warez = banned here.

    [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ix9tHzDiO-g"]YouTube - gpSPhone GBA emu on iPod touch![/ame]

    Things that still need work:
    - Compatibility is lower than usual but many games are playable. This is being worked on as a high priority.
    - Sound output is disabled, but it IS being emulated. So performance will only get better as this feature gets worked on.
    - Auto frameskip might be off. Switch to manual frameskip if needed.
    - GUI and instructions need a lot of work.

    be sure to check out the developers site for updates on the project.

    thanks realisticmind1

    Just upload the games as you would for NES. Just in the right directory for the GameBoy.

    Nope. I even tried renaming .GB and .GBC files to .GBA, but running the rom just crashed to SpringBoard.

    iBrickr can be used for the ROMs, but not for the application itself.

    Games and the GBA Bios you will have to find for your self online. To upload manually, use an SSH client to send the files to your phone. to install this file manually, download gpSPhone.zip. unzip the file and drag the entire folder into your /applications folder through SSH. when you find the GBA Bios file (where ever you may find it), take the GBA_Bios.bin file and place it in the gpSPhone folder as well.

    for complete instructions check out this guide http://www.modmyi.com/wiki/index.php/Installing_3rd_Party_apps_on_iPhone_Windows

    it will show you how to install 3rd party apps manually

    .gb and .gbc files are gameboy and gameboy color roms. im pretty sure you can't just change the file extension. find gameboy advanced games. they have the file extension .gba

    when i play games, i have green lines that constantly and randomly shoot across the screen horizontally. anyone else having this problem? fix?
