    1) did you already connect via SSH and use the "chmod +x *" command for the /Applications/NES.app folder?
    2) try doing the same for the /var/root/Media/ROMs/NES folder (for your ROMs)

    Give us more details and we can help more if these 2 don't do it for ya

    yep what he said and if you are not sure about the chmod thing, then thru scp just right click the folder and go to properties and change the permission to read 0777 same with the contents in the folder

    cyberduck. right click the nes folder select something like "get info" or "properties". there should be a place to set permissions set them to 775, click apply to all enclosed items or wtvr the equivalent option is there. restart phone

    0775 (775)

    so all the boxes checked minus write for group and world.

    the folder and all the roms need to be set to this (777 or 0777 however you want to write it will work as well)
