Found 23rd Feb 2014
As the title says, neat little gba emulator for your ios device, without having to jailbreak.

Loads of games available to download too! Enjoy...

Any issues with getting it to work, set the date on your device back to before 19th Feb 2014 and try again - once it's started you can set it back again.

Nice find OP

Heat added

Not risking a virus

Hasn't there just been a new security update for iOS 7... Suspicious how this needs the date rolling back to before that to install?
Thanks OP, but not going to take the risk on at out-of-appstore app.

Works, awesome.

Like a sega version

How do you get the games?
Cant seem so find any but thanks OP!

there is a YouTube video explaining how to use it.

On the top of the blank list there is a + button select that and it takes you to a list of games select the game and it installs and then it gets added to your list and you can then select it to play

Haha

You need to disconnect every piece of tech you have from the net then....as it can all be hacked and viruses planted

I've downloaded straight from the link above and I'm unable to install the app. I click on the app and it repeatedly states that the app is installing.

Mine's stuck at waiting. ;/

Worked fine here

Hit the link, clicked download, the app appeared on the homescreen. Changed the date to the 18th on on my Ipad, clicked the app on the homescreen to install. Bingo!

Thanks Op!

Oh, it's done now. ;D

Thanks OP!

iOS doesn't really suffer from viruses... Exploits, yes (hence jailbreaking etc) but viruses, no.

Also, downloaded this a few days ago, the date tip is necessary.

Thanks, but no thanks on this. Seems good, but I'd rather not risk it.

Apple revoked the license for them to distribute as they dislike non-appstore apps, the date change moves the date back to when the license was valid.
It's very well known and so if you don't trust it, research and make up your own mind afterwards

Awesome find! thank you

If the app is stuck at installing, or says "waiting", put the date back to 18th February 2014. It will then install properly.

Thank you X)

Haha, next joke. Please research before posting. There is no risk from this and it's widely known.

Under General my profile is now GBA4IOS? Why?

This is crazy, surely other apps on cydia could do this?

Strange one, hadn't noticed that - removed the profile and app still seems to work.

Tried this months ago got nowhere. I couldn't get it to work (it just has on my iOS7 iPhone 4), but I read people were losing save files if they kept returning the date back, and/or just reopening the "app"?

no need to worry about fiddling with dates, people worrying out getting hacked, etc.

Is there an android version

As cool as this could be, I doubt it's particularly legit, I think HUKD have a hard policy on piracy (roms).

As I pointed out in your thread(tho I messed up the quoting so you may have missed it) but this is a gba/gbc(and I'd assume gb tho I've not checked), while what you've posted only does gb so you can't compare.

How do I install the roms after they show up in my games list as 'name of game' and 'zip'

Thanks

You don't, you just click on the name of the one you want to play.

Absolutely brilliant! Thank you! Now to relive the days of playing Pokemon on my Gameboy haha!
