GBA4iOS is not an unknown name, not in jailbreak circles nor outside of it. It is a popular emulator, one of the many that we used to be able to download through Cydia. For the last 18 months or so, we have seen few updates to Cydia and those there have been have only worked on a handful of devices. For a while, we were starting to wonder if we would ever have another way of downloading emulators and now GBA4iOS [ext link] can be downloaded without a jailbreak being needed.

What is GBA4iOS ?

GBA4iOS is the best way to play Nintendo Gameboy games on your iOS device. It is a popular emulator, redeveloped using iOS SDK tools to provide one of the best and closest console experiences on an iOS device. At one time, the developer managed to get GBA4iOS into the app store, but Apple soon caught on to the fact that there was an unpatched exploit being used and, with iOS 8, they closed the hole. GBA4iOS was forced out of the store and into Cydia.

Now the developer, Riley Testut, has redeveloped it so it will work without needing a jailbreak and, in the process, he has integrated GBA4iOS with some of the iOS SDK tools, giving him an opportunity to offer you some of the coolest features about. If the 10 million+ downloads so far are anything to go by, you are not going to be disappointed.
