While the jailbreak scene has appeared to die down a new trick was developed to install a Gameboy Advance emulator on any device jailbroken or not. This feature is great for anyone who either upgraded and can no longer use Evasi0n or just a big fan of the Gameboy. The trick utilizes a OTA update on the phone and installs the emulator onto the home screen. Roms can then be downloaded through mobile Safari.


1. Go here on your iDevice [bit.ly/gbanojailbreak]

2.  Click the install app button and proceed through the steps.Screen Shot 2013-07-14 at 7.46.28 PM3. Once loaded onto your homescreen (may take a while) open up the app.

4. Click the spotlight button on the top right, the app will open up Safari and direct you to a Google search.

5. Download the rom you want (try coolrom.com) and open it with the app.

6. Play Gameboy On The iPhone!

    well, is there a way to make an alakazam or gengar? I mean, trading the pokemons OR something similar to Game Shark? Can you help me please, thanks.

    Note. My Iphone has iOS 6.1.4 .. Some tactic to downgrade it back to 6.1.3 would be useful as well.. I have tried upgrading to iOS 7 then going back to 6.1.3 but it failed..
