    So i have jail broken my phone, 1.1.3. I also installed the PSX and GBA emulators to my phone. The problem is I cant make the /var/root/Media/ROMs folder to install the ROMS onto. Ive tried installing iphone browser, but every time i open the program, it says it has encountered a problem and needs to close. Ive also tried installing Finder on my phone, but when i try to create a new folder in that section, no folder is created.

    With 1.1.3 the Media Location of the iphone disk has changed

    Its now: var/Mobile/Media/ROMs

    Best of luck. - Easily create your own Cydia Repo.

    i put the roms in /var/mobile/media/ROMs/GBA

    and when i tried the gba emulator, it said no roms were found in /var/root/media/Roms/GBA

    how do i get to /var/root?

    I had the same problem in 1.1.3. all u got to do is copy that media folder with your roms and paste it under the libary folder in var/root. thats it people.

    I believe there's a fix called 1.1.3 fix for mobile finder in installer. Before I used it, finder wouldn't let me move or change permissions on anything. The contact is masaki, I don't recall the source.

    I added shais repository: , then updated sources to all sources. If you can find it separately, the fix is found in Japan Public Repository, but requires you to have trejans source installed. I'd just go all sources, though. Its found under tweaks 1.1.3 called 1.1.3 fix for mobilefinder.

    Try this,
    1)uninstall the nes emulator and any folders you have created
    2)go to installer and add the foll source
    3)install the nes emulator and the classic nes roms package from the repo you just added
    After you have installed this package it should create the ROMs folder for you so after you can just add your roms thru ssh.
    This worked for me because I had a similar problem at one point.

    My problem is the emulator is not complete...when I start the game, only the start, select and red A and B buttons show up...What's the deal with that? Also, when I unzip the files, there's A LOT of games in them. Which do I use?
