    first, change ownership

    Open terminal and press enter(or return) after each line

    chown -hR mobile /var/root

    chown -hR mobile /var/mobile


    After you do that, open mobilefinder and navigate to your roms folder(/var/root/Media/ROMs/GBA) might be in /var/mobile

    Change permissions to 777 or just make sure all boxes are highlighted on the GBA folder and now you can save

    Also after that is fixed and you load a saved game, then go to main menu and hit "yes, overwrite" it will delete it

    To fix this open terminal

    If in /VAR/mobile type

    chmod 777 /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/GBA/*


    If in /var/root, replace mobile with root in command above and press enter

    If you add more roms after this then you will have to enter last command again to fix newly added roms

    Ps. This is all done from the iPhone without touching a computer

    Saving games is a permissions problem with 1.1.3 and up. It can be easily solved by typing:
    chown -hR var/mobile/Media/ROMs mobile

    in Terminal to give the user 'mobile' owensrship of the ROM folder. Look for Terminal build 207 or later for 1.1.3 (or install the SUID lib fix from BigBoss' source for any older version of Terminal)
    Another name for terminal is MobileTerminal, so look hard.

    Try putting "mobile" after the R

    ex. chown -hR mobile /...

    That's what has always worked for me!

    I believe the code is:

    chown -hR mobile var/mobile/Media/ROMs

    not:

    chown -R mobile var/mobile/Media/ROMs

    note the h before the R.

    For me, there was no ROMs folder inside mobile/Media. My ROMs folder was in var/root/Media/ROMs. I don't know if this is common... I had to add the rom manually (i dont know if there's another way), so I ssh'd in and created the root/Media/ROMs folder and added it there. Then I installed terminal and mobile finder. Using mobile finder i added a folder named ROMs to var/mobile/Media/. Then I navigated to it with terminal and used the command:

    chown -hR mobile ROMs/

    NB: I didn't include the whole path because I had already navigated to the appropriate Media folder.

    Hopefully that helps, and hopefully it will all work now.

    Hey guys, i'm brand new to this iphone modding but i managed to figure out how to get my gba games to save, if you use WinSCP you can find out the exact location of your ROMs folder and once you figure out what it is all you have to do is enter the code above in Terminal with your ROMs file directory, for example my ROMs wasn't located in just var/mobile/Media/ROMs, it was located in /private/var/mobile/Media/ROMs so in Terminal i had to type in chown -hR mobile /private/var/mobile/Media/ROMs

    don't know if that makes any sense, but hope it helps, and if you have questions on exactly how i did it just ask

    i have found out that when you use mobilefinder, changing the permissions does work if you make a new map, so you should make a new folder, click modify, tick al the blue kinda squares and then in that folder make a new folder, do the same thingand then use ssh to upload your games very easy

    I have a similar problem using the NO$GBA Emulator, I save the game everything is ok fine until I shut down the emulator and start it again tomorrow and the saving does not appear like its removed and I must start the game from the beginning once again and this becomes more and more irritating.
