Check out dock in screenshot. The apps I'm using:
-NES.emu for Nintendo
-SNES9x EX+ for Super Nintendo
-GBC.emu for Gameboy
-MD.emu for Sega Genesis
-RetroArch for Nintendo 64

I changed the icons manually, and renamed them using Icon Renamer (in Cydia).

They all run at 100% and perfectly. The onscreen controls work great (buttons are movable too).
Every game for all 5 systems takes up about 7GB total. All games save automatically so I just play till I'm bored and then switch games knowing my first one will be waiting and ready next time I get to it. It's been really fun. This is my dream come true.

Awesome

I can't seen to find a GBA emulator :(

Edit: Well, the app says its not compatible... is there a way to install it and try it anyways?

Edit 2: I'm dumb. Forgot about gpsphone.

Get GBA.emu. Robert Broglia makes the best emulators in Cydia.

That's awesome! I'm doing something similar, but I didn't think about renaming and changing the icons.
If you want the icons contact me.

That's what I intended to do, but it showed as being incompatible...
It works fine on all iOS versions, including 7.1 beta, despite whatever error you're seeing. You need to email the developer about getting a license since he took his PayPal account off Cydia for some reason so you can't buy it there anymore. Believe me, his emulators are the best. They are $5-$6 each, but worth it for having the best iOS emulators to date.

Yessir. Every game for GB, GBC, NES, SNES, SG, and N64. If you cut out N64, it would only be 3GB.

I keep getting a hash error on this... any ideas on how to get around it? Did you have any issues like this?

Just use google. Can't link to rom sites here. If you know how to use torrents you can download all the games in batch. Don't know about ps4.

Thank you that worked!

I am stuck on downloading the Roms. The safari downloader is not compatible with the 5s
You can just use the dolphin browser from the App Store. This has a built in download manager. It's actually pretty awesome. And it's a solid browser too. Combine this with iFile and you're good to go! No need to add an extra cydia substrate addon. :)

Any idea as to why retroarch force closes anytime I try to load a game? I've tried two different games and it just force closes. I've tried removing and reinstalling retroarch and it's still a no go :(
