Ok, so I just downloaded iBrickr and it is working. Now how do I get the NES emulator onto my iPhone? I'm kinda confused...I tried a few things and they didn't work. I'm on the iBrickr screen where it has the button that says "Install Applications." I'm assuming that I click on that and then do something to get the NES emulator on the iPhone, but I'm not exactly sure what to do. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

I got the NES emulator on my iPhone! Now I can't get the ROMs! :mad:
I'm trying to figure out Rom placement, but how were you able to install it with IBrickr? I tried a few times with it by hitting that button, but none of the NES files are .pxl.

Place the ROM files into:
\var\root\Media\ROMs\NES

The last two folders will need to be created. Here's how via iBrickr:

  1. Go to files:
  2. Scroll down to var and click it (then click root, and then Media):
  3. Once in the Media folder, click Create Folder (use ROMs--case sensitive--as the folder name):
  4. Click into the newly created ROMs folder:
  5. Create another folder, this time NES. Then tap NES to go into that folder:
  6. While in the NES folder click Upload file. Navigate to a folder containing your already downloaded and unzipped ROM files, select one, then click OK:
  7. Your ROM file is now in place. Repeat for more games!

I've looked around 2 see if I find an answer but i can't...at least not a clear one...
Where can I get the NES emaulators? I can se the icon on my phone but it gives me this message:

No Roms Found
No Nes ROM's were found
Please upload ROM's to
/var/root/Media/ROMs/NES



And also, where can I find a STEP BY STEP guide that helps me 2 install it once i find the games...
(I use mac)


Thank you:cool:

You can use iBrickr to upload roms to the folder it is telling you (var/root/Media/ROMs/NES) and then it will display your ROMs when you load the application.

EDIT, didn't see you use a mac, there is a similar program that someone will link I am sure or just do a search.

Here is a site that keeps coming back to the NES/Roms question. Hope this helps. I patterned my success after this article. Have fun! ;)

So I had NES installed and working perfectly. This morning I went on cydia and there was an update for NES so I installed it and now NES won open at all. Any ideas how I can fix it? I tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no luck so far.

WOW. I just updated before I read this post and BAM. No more NES. What's really good?
