    I spent what seems like hours finding the bios and now I have no idea where to put it. I opened afp in the phone and browsed to the proper folder to place it in the gpsphone.app folder and low and beold, it's not there. In fact I dont have app folders for most my apps.

    Should I use a different fils broswer?

    Could I be looking in the wrong spot for the gpsphone.app?

    I looked in private/var/root

    So any help would be greatly appreciated. I would love to put these roms to work.

    Thanks

    Yeah I got that, but I can't copy the bios file in to the gpsphone.app because it isn't recognized as a folder on my mac. Should I use a different file browser?

    Okay maybe it wasn't hours, but I have been spending a crap load of time on trying to make it work. It's really getting me pissed off.

    Any pointers from someone who has been successful on a mac?

    Thanks

    The gpsphone.app needs to be installed on your iphone first, THEN you add the bios to it. You can't add the bios to the app if its still on your mac.

    And make sure you change permissions to 755.

    I have the app installed. Where can I change the permission? I have the phone jailbrocken from jailbreakme.com so I thought it took care of the permissions for me. Possible a guide for the gpsphone on a mac would be awsome.

    It may have taken care of permissions then, but a lot of FTP clients won't change permissions for NEW apps you transfer to the phone. As far as changing permissions, if you're on a mac, then use the standard Option I in your FTP client. Come on, you've jailbroken the phone, this stuff is elementary.

    I jailbroke the phone using a website. Permissions and codeing are far past my expertise. I am trying to understand, but people like you my friend are not giving me enough info to work with. And telling me that it's elementary is like tell me that I should know how to build a computer because I was able to navigate to a website and jailbrake my phone. Just a simple explaination about how it should work would be sufficient.

    I have gpsphone installed on the phone, now where can I put the bios? I know it should be in the /applications folder, but I don't see it and if I have to change permissions then where and how would I do that? If there is a guide that I am missing then I would be very thankful if you could point me in the right direction. The guide on the developers site is in pc language and I have a mac so I could only follow it so far.

    Thanks

    Are you guys kidding?
    Look, when you work with afp, you see iPhone apps just like apple applications(safari, iphoto, all that stuff...). But to put bios in app you should ctrl+click on it & choose "show package content"(you can do this thing with mac applications to).

    I hope it will make sense.

    Dude, that makes perfect sense. Thank you so very much. I click thanks as well. I will try this when I get home, and even if I still can't play the emulator I am very thankful for your straight forward response.
