    As everyone knows who has jailbroken their iphone or ipod touch, emulators are one of the best things you can have on your ipod. After people download the emulators, there arises the question- how the hell do i find roms? The people that "know" what their doing usually suggest getting a program for the computer. I have a far easier way that doesn't have the limited amount of roms installer sources have. (by the way, for all those queers who said negetive things, im not suggesting anything, just saying what I found out. I'm sure you have roms, like everyone else with a jailbroken ipod))
    First off, you need to have your ipod sucessfully jailbroken. also, make sure that you have SOME FORM TO ACCESS AND EDIT YOUR IPOD'S SYSTEM FOLDERS AND FILES through an application. I suggest mobile finder. Another app you need is dTunes, which as far as i know is only on cydia(2.0.0 and up form of installer). Last, you need Bossprefs and the add on Safari DL. this lets you download files off of safari. now, you can download roms. but they don't go into your roms folder. here's where mobilefinder comes in. Go into mobilefinder, and then go to library/downloads and find the file that you downloaded. press file, then move and bring it to media/roms. choose the emulator folder, and paste it in the roms subfolder. if the subfolder isn't there, then just paste it in the emulator folder. Volia, your done!:D the only difficulty you may have now is finding roms that are compatible. finding good compatible roms is a challenge all its own. ZIP file roms are most likey to work. If you have any questions or complaints, feel free to post them in this forum or email them to me at L3un1t@aim.com

    Quick instructions-
    1.get Dtunes,Mobilefinder,and bossprefs+Safari DL
    2.download roms
    3. go to library/downloads and cut them to media/roms and then to the emulator folder that the rom is for
    4. Play the rom and hope it is compatible! I suggest ZIP file roms

    One last thing- if you have all the apps above, you can now download things other than roms, like videos, straight out of the internet or application.

    Telling people to download roms is piracy. Piracy is :eek:

    my biggest complain is that I can't find compatible roms for the PSx or the Arcade emulator.

    So this realy doesn't help me, but thanks

    Hmm the zip file isn't recognized as a playable game.

    No, it's not. You just need to make sure that you own a legal copy of the ROM that you're downloading.
