    Have you even tried googling roms?

    I guarantee that this question as been answered many times on the different iPhone boards.

    PS> Most boards forbid posting info on warez like roms.

    Actually, NES requires you to manually upload the ROMs to a folder you create in the iPhone file structure.

    Place the folder chain: /ROMs/NES in the /Media folder on the ROOT menu.

    you can download ROMs from any website that you find in google.

    As for uploading, you can use SSH and SFTP, or AFP through

    These are steps taken from the website iphonealley - they work, I've tried it myself:

    Step 1.

    Download from:

    Step 2.

    Follow the installation instructions below:

    With alone you can install games, more programs, etc. =] But for ringtones and ROMs for games continue on..

    Step 3.

    Using install the following Applications to your iPhone:

    BSD Subsystem
    Mobile Finder

    Step 4.

    Download CyberDuck FTP for free at the following link:

    Step 5.

    To get your iPhone's IP address, go to (on the iPhone):

    Settings > Wi-Fi

    Click the little Blue Arrow next to your wireless access point (default, linksys, etc.)

    (Thanks to liquidrums for this info. =])

    Step 6.

    Connect your iPhone to your computer with the USB Cable.

    Open up CyberDuck FTP, and go to Open Connection.

    In the Protocol drop down menu, set it to SFTP (SSH Secure File Transfer)

    For IP, type in your phones IP Address.

    For your username / pass use the following:

    username: root
    password: dottie

    Now press connect, and let it connect to your iPhone.

    Step 7.

    To install ringtones, go to the home directory by using the dropdown menu right below the Quick Connect bar. From there, go to:

    Library > Ringtones

    Now, just drag and drop your .mp3 or .m4a ringtones in there. =]

    Step 8.

    To install ROMs, you must create the following chain:


    /var/root/Media is already there, you just need to create the /ROMS/NES portion. Just create new folders using CyberDuck FTP. Once you create those, just drop the ROMs in the NES folder, and restart your iPhone for good measure and you're done!

    It's really simple, a lot more simple that doing everything in Terminal (in my opinion). Plus, you can just drag and drop.

    This is for the people who want ringtones but don't have an Intel Mac to run iFuntastic (yet).

    I'm sorry if this tutorial has already been posted, I haven't seen it and it was really useful to me so I thought i'd share. =] If there are any corrections let me know.

    I got this to work on my phone no problem, but I'm trying to get it to work on my friends touch and I can't figure out why I can't see them. I've entered both links (repo/repo.plist and repo/ and checked my spelling 80 times and still the source just sits there under uncaregorized and I can't see the roms to download. Its so easy I don't know what the he'll is wrong, can anyone confirm that the / link still works?
