    I jailbroke my old 1st gen iPad and downloaded a Gameboy emulator for nostalgia sake. I plan on selling that iPad and jailbreaking my new iPad. I have some game saves on my old iPad that I would like to transfer to my new one. Is there a way I could do this somehow?

    Why does no one reply to any of these threads on any site, ever!? How does the Internet leave such a question unanswered? NOONE knows how to transfer a gameboy rom save? Is it even possible? SOMEONE??

    Drag from the old device and drop onto the new device. It isn't that hard to solve for oneself.

    Do you have personal experience with this directly? To get a gameboy rom save from one jailbroken apple device to another? Because no one else seems to know and if you have some real experience doing so then please be a little more specific than "drag and drop" and if you can't tell me exactly how to do it then don't be rude and post incorrect answers to questions that you don't know the answers to.

    I've been doing it since 2007 and I have the same game saves on my 4S from iOS 1.1.1. Download them to your computer with a SSH client from the old device. Then navigate to the same directly on the new device with a SSH client and upload them to there.

    Okay, assume that I'm plugged in and connected via SSH, how and where are the saves specifically that I can just take them from one to the other?
