Non-Jailbreak and Jailbreak Version of Gameboy Emulator GBA4iOS Coming to iOS Devices

The popular Gameboy Color and Game Boy Advanced emulator for iOS devices won't die! After surviving a DMCA take down by Nintendo, GBA4iOS, was sacked by an iOS 8 patch that killed the workaround which was required to install it on non-jailbroken iOS devices, but now the emulator is back in action! iPhone and iPad users running iOS 7 - 8.1 can download GBA4iOS 2.1 by simply visiting on their mobile browser.

Nintendo Closes Down Gameboy Advance Emulator GBA4iOS

Anyone who tries to avoid pirating music, movies and video games will tell you sometimes companies make it hard. For example, when a studio refuses to release a specific film to DVD or Blu-ray fans have no choice but to download it illegally or keep a VCR handy. Or how about when you try to start watching a new television series, and only episodes 4, 5, 6, 22 and 24 are available On Demand? These scenarios can be frustrating and it sometimes forces customers to search for alternatives such as video game emulators.


As most iOS gamers already know, NIntendo refuses to release its titles to mobile devices. Nintendo's no mobile game policy has caused some fans to use emulators such as GBA4iOS to port Nintendo games to their iPhone or iPad. Last night, GBA4iOS creator Riley Testut confirmed via Twitter that Nintendo sent a DMCA notice "requesting to be shut down".
