    I have found an old version of retroarch to try and get my ps3 controller working, however, I have installed it through iFile, but it doesn't appear on my springboard?

    It shows up as installed in Cydia, but I can't run it at all?

    Any ideas how I can show the app? I have resprung and rebooted!

    As a general rule, whenever installing deb files via iFile, you need to reboot twice for it to turn on.

    Reboot once or twice and it should appear (assuming it's compatible with your device).
