    copied off ur stepbystep
    Next you need to download the BIOS File here. After you download the BIOS file you need to put the file on your SD Card's root directory (not in a folder, just on the card). This will allow you to play games, and without this file it will just keep saying you don't have the BIOS file. When you launch Gameboid it will ask you to locate the BIOS file.

    Right, the "root directory" means not in a folder on the sd card. You do not need to root your phone.

    root as in the root of the SD card - what you see what you open up the SD Card (all your files)

    Either way, it's just easier to find when Gameboid ask for it to start off.

    I copied the Bios File from my Computer to the SD card when Windows popped up a new removeable drive. in the Root but the gameboid app doesn't see the file I can't figure this out everyone just says drop it into root works fine I must be retarded or something.
