Hello Se7enSins! Today, I will be showing all of you how to install a GameBoy Advance Emulator onto your iDevice!

com.zodttd.gpsphone.png

Follow these steps!
  • Ok, before we start, let's make sure your iDevice is jail-broken. Visit here and download according to your software you have. Once, you install it follow the on-screen instructions.
  • Now that's done, let's open up Cydia.
  • Go to Search--->Type in "gpsPhone"
  • Click on the one that says "gpSPhone Bios" and install that one first.
  • Once you install that, go back and install the one that says "gpSPhone"
  • They should be on one of your pages. If not, then delete them and install them again, a different order. (Just fool with them, that's how I did it when they didn't work)
  • Now that you have the actual GameBoy Advance onto your phone, it's time to download some games ROMs.
  • Open Cydia.
  • Go to Manage--->Sources--->Edit (at the top right)--->Add (at the top left).
  • Type in EXACTLY this: "http://apt.123locker.com/" (w/o the quotes)
  • Once you finish installing that, it's time to get the games from the ROM package you just downloaded.
  • Go to Cydia--->Manage--->Sources--->4pp13 Team Repository. (it might be called something else but when you open it everything starts with GBA ROMs)
  • You'll notice each title has letters next to them. e.g 'C' E-F'... etc
  • Now all you have to do is download your GBA ROMs.
  • To get the game you want, take the first letter of it and download the ROM package according to the title. Let's take Pokemon Ruby for example. To get it you must download the "GBA ROMs Package 1 (O-P)"
Here's a few pictures I took for proof...

Yes, you can use GameShark codes on there as well. I will be releasing another quality tutorial on that once this gets big. :wink:
And that's about it. Hope I helped y'all out and if you have any questions/problems just send me a PM or hit me up on AIM.
And yes, I take full credit for this. I made this whole tutorial up myself, but I do not take credit for making the software you will install. :smile:

EDIT: To get the free version of gpSPhone, you must FIRST type this in like you did at step 8: "http://www.cydia.xsellize.com/" (w/o the quotes).
EDIT 2: Yayy everyone, I made a tut on getting gameshark codes here: http://www.se7ensins.com/forums/topic/529872-tut-use-gameshark-codes-on-gpsphone/

There's always been alot of issues using ga game shark cheats on portable emulators.. If you have VBA or a similar emulator on your PC you can use your cheats on there then transfer your game save over to your iDevice using SSH . I've done this a few times and know that it works. You may need to change your emulators save type settings to Flash 128k to work.

Hope this helps

You can also add ROM's by SSHing them into /var/mobile/media/ROMS/GBA

Also, you would need to have either sinfuliphonerepo.com or cydia.xsellize.com added to get it for free.

You might want to get, the source, SINFUL IPHONE REPO and get the cracked version. I don't think the original works, or at least it didn't for me. :lol:
