    It tells you to supply a gba_bios.bin. Google is your friend!

    Connect to PC and mount SD card. Copy file over. Or if that gives you hell, install swiftp and FTP it to your SD card.

    Thank you for the real answers. That's what I'm looking for when I post a question in a forum, not some jackass telling me to google it.

    He's not a jackass, he just doesn't want to be banned. gba_bios is kinda illegal.

    The gameboid program is not illegal :) Things you might decide to use it with are, but that's on you!

    Yeah, the program itself isn't illegal, but gba_bios.bin, and roms, are both illegal. If you don't believe me/us, just look up any debate on legality of emulators/roms.

    ok im not saying it isn't illegal, I was wondering how they are able to sell that in the marketplace. Is there a legal way to use the game then?

    Well, the only way to legally use it is if you're just playing homebrew, not real games.

    Don't call me a jackass, I helped you plenty. You needed a file, I told you the exact file name to find. I told you to Google it--a VERY helpful tip as googling the file name gives you the download on the FIRST link. I'm not going to link directly to it as there's a legal gray area, but let me do this for you:

    Link

    I understand that you're new to smartphones, but you don't have to act like you've never used a computer before, either.

    Also, homebrew is user created material for game devices--material NOT protected by copyright.

    Hey I'm sorry if I offended you by calling you a jackass. I just would have googled it if I had the time to go looking around and learn how to do it myself. But I wanted to come to a forum, specifically for the droid, to get an explanation on what to do. Why do you have to assume I know everything there is to know about computers and cellphones?

    It is a slippery slope debate, but if you own the game, it is a widely-held notion that you can legally download the ROM of said game.
