    i installed it and even checked the roms in the ssh and they’re in teh right folder
    but when i go in NES it says no Roms found T_T

  14. Hi I need sources with Classic NES ROMs 3.3

  15. Try setting the media folder’s permission’s to 0755. It worked for some reason for me.

  16. I tried adding to my sources but I can’t seem to find where the NES roms are. Can anyone help me please?

  17. I can’t get it to work as well

  18. I just uninstalled it and did it over. And it still won’t play. I just keep getting ” no nes rom not found”

  19. I have installed it all and it still says “no roms found” … Im so a noob about the SSH, can someone point me to a good tutorial for SSH please?

  20. the files are in the wrong directory. they need to be in the /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/NES directory.

    1. ssh into the iphone (assume Openssh is installed, note password is either dottie or alpine)
    2. create the ROMs/NES directory in the under /var/mobile/Media/
    3. copy all the ROM files from /private/var/root/Media/ROMs/NES directory into the /var/mobile/Media/ROMs/NES directory.

    This should work.

    • Okay, like i said, i’m a noob on SSH.
      I got into the files via WinSCP.
      I made the new directories.
      How do i get them to save?? When i exit and try NES it still doesnt work. I go back in to the files and the new directories are there but the ROMs did not save to the directory….. help please?

  21. SSH help please

    • ssh help:
      For Mac – use the terminal, for Windows – download putty
      ssh -l root
      password = dottie or alpine

      cd /var/mobile/Media/
      mkdir ROMs
      mkdir ROMs/NES
      cd ROMs/NES
      mv /private/var/root/Media/ROMs/NES/* .

      Hope this helps.

    • I havent tried putty, but i do have WinSCP like i said before. I just want to know how to save once I have moved the files in WinSCP? When i move them then exit they dont save to the new directory. Ill try putty if I have to but i got winscp to work so far id like to finish the job and learn more about it at the same time with winscp.

    I tried the following and it works perfect, I’m running 1.1.3

    First open “Installer”

    Tap on “Sources” in the bottom right corner.

    Tap on “Edit” in the top right corner

    the tap on “Add” in the top left corner

    Enter in source exactly as follows: (Make sure the letter S is capitalized.

    Once you’re done adding the new source, tap “Done” in the top right corner. should refresh the sources automatically but sometimes it takes twice for them to show up correctly.

    Adding the NES games:

    Go to Install, scroll down to Games.

    Install “NES” emulator for the iPhone.

    Then go to “NES ROMs
    Install “Classic NES ROMs”

    Now you’re set to go.
