Thread: Help installing NES Emulator on the iPhone 3Gs.

  1. #1
    Default Help installing NES Emulator on the iPhone 3Gs.
    I need some help installing NES Emulator & Games on my iPhone3Gs.

    I am using an iPhone3Gs with software 3.0.1. I have just jailbroken the phone with redsn0w 0.8.
    I installed NES (version 2.3.4) through Cydia.
    I am using a PC running Windows XP and I have a wireless router.
    I downloaded OpenSSH and SBSettings on my iPhone3Gs.
    I downloaded WinSCP on my PC.
    I used WinSCP to browse my iPhone3GS and created 2 new folders, the “ROMs” and “NES” folders.
    Their location is in /private/var/mobile/Media/ROMs/NES/
    I noticed the Owner of the folder is listed as “root” instead of “mobile”.
    I can’t seem to change the Owner.
    The rights are listed as rwxr-xr-x. The Octal is 0755.
    I downloaded NES games from “theoldcomputer.com”, unzipped it and placed the “gamename.nes” into the NES folder.
    When I start up the NES, it will attempt to start then shut down within 2 seconds.
    I have tried to reinstall the NES, Reinstall the SBSettings, Reinstall the WinSCP but it still doesn’t work.
    Please help me. What am I doing wrongly?

    Ok Guys i figured it out. The NES (2.3.4) was not working.

    I had to download the Paid version NES 3 for it to work on the 3Gs running on 3.0.1.

    There are of course other ways to get the NES 3 without paying for it.

    Hey guys, i'm trying to use the snes4iphone emulator. I've successfully installed and used the gba and nes 3 emulators, so i have some experience with this stuff. whenever i try to load a rom in the snes emulator, it starts to load and then nothing happens however. Anyone have any ideas? Or is there another thread anyone can point me to? Thanks!

    ^You know that we don't allow rom repos on this site.

    If you run a rom and nothing happens, then you are using a bad-dumped ROM.

    Did not know that, I edited my earlier post.

    Apologies.

    I am about to buy the NES 3 paid version as, with my iphone 3gs jailbroken with blackra1n using 3.1.2 firmware, the 2.3.4 version of NES just opens and shuts.

    Will this NES version 3 work with 3.1.2? Or is it only for 3.0?

    I bought it and it stays open but even after following the directions and putting the .nes files on the right directory through ssh, the games are not showing up in the emulator.

    Try setting permissions to 777. If the roms don't work, you got some bad-dumped roms.

    Are the ROMs in this directory?
    /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/NES

    If not, place them there.
