    For gameboid....you need that special file, I think its called gba_bios.bin I *think*. But it says the name of the file whenever you open up gameboid if you dont have it...

    I Googled the name of that file and found it super easy

    But as for snesoid, you're on your own buddy :) I tried every way and method imaginable and couldn't get it to work :(

    Only successful emulators on my Droid, was Gameboid, and Nesoid

    :welcome: Vincent! You need to put the gba_bios in the same file as your games in gameboid. You also need an app called download crutch lite which i don't thinks is in the market anymore. Maybe you can find it via google.
    @ Nate - maybe the download crutch lite is what you need to run snesoid? i use snesoid all the time with zero problems.

    Strange. SNESoid really isn't different from NESoid in my experience.

    on the root directory of your sdcard i just made a com.gameboid folder inside the /data folder. I put the BiOS in there and then have another folder called /ROMs for all my games. Gameboid is the best 'gaming' app and emulator for that matter. Better than the jailbroken iPhone apps too.
