    Smile NES HELP! problems with saving
    So i already have the NES and GBA emulators successfully installed into my iPhone and have many working games on it. HOWEVER, whenever i try to save my game when i stop playing, it won't go to the "saved games" section so i have to start ALL OVER! any ideas? i tried turning it to Auto-Save but it didn't work either.
    Anyone know how to get the games to save? its not working for me!
    thanks alot!

    You have to run a command from the terminal in order for them to start saving. I forget where I found the command, it was somewhere in a forum..knew I should have bookmarked it. I gotta get back to work, but Ill find it later tonight and post it here.

    yeah actually i found a solution that worked for me... if you have 2.0.1 enter this command (exactly) in winSCP in in tunnel... chown -hR mobile /var/root

    and if you have 2.0.5 try this one... chown -hR mobile /var/mobile

    (if one doesnt work then try the other just to make sure)

    *terminal i meant.. not tunnel**

    typing the line below into WinSCP should fix both gpsPhone and NES, it did for me.

    chown -hR mobile /var/mobile
