    Great guide! I just read it over and its very simple/easy to use to me.

    No time to try it today, but will do it tomorrow! Hopefully it works on CFW 4.01 M33-2 :D


    Thanks a lot!!!

    Hi. I am trying to follow your instructions to install the GBA emulator, but no luck. I keep getting an error saying that I need to find a bios.

    Now I've tried about 3 or 4 different gba bios, but each gave me the same error. I have followed your guide with renaming the file "gba_bios.bin" and moving it on the gpSP folder on the GAME folder, even tried it on different folders like GAME150 and GAME380 as well, but I get the same result.

    I've also tried other GBA emulators but they give me an error saying that the game could not be started.

    I have a Slim PSP with 3.90 M33-3
    Any help would be appreciated, thanks for you time.

    Sorry, but the bios isn't the correct one. You have to get a proper one. The gpSP folder should be put in the GAME at all times.

    Does your PC show the full extension of files ? If not or you are not sure try renaming the bios with this "gba_bios".

    Thank you for your help. I tried downloading a new copy of the bios and instead of renaming it "gba_bios.bin" I just left it as it was, "gba_bios" and placed it in the gpSP folder. It now works. Many thanks for the tutorial as well! :)

    This is an awesome guide MrGooey. It worked first time. I think you should do one on how to play nintendo 64 games on your PSP.

    its pretty much the same concept...create a folder and name it the same as the emulator, place the emulator files inside the folder, drag the folder to appropriate directory in your psp (usually GAME150 folder), drop the ROMS inside the emulator folder within your psp, start the emulator, load the ROM and tada!

    however, last time i checked (and this is maybe 1 yr ago), N64 emulation was horrible on the psp...lots of laggy plus not many games supported...

    and ... that's why I aint going to put the N64 emu. It's kinda laggy still and it not going to get updated. Not to mention that it needs the 1.50 kernel which makes it hard for the slim users.

    This has already been answered. However, I would like someone to confirm if it works (and which one). So, I can put it on my guide.

    This is rad but just wanna say... Gba/SNES roms arent illegal as long as you own the actual games. That goes for roms of all systems. But yeah bios' are definatley illegal... so dont get caught! Check my home page for some roms, the site listed has evert gba release (all of them) and a great selection of snes games as well. it also has games from many other systems. Enjoy!
