As you may be aware, some of ZodTTD‘s emulators, such as nes4iPhone and snes4iPhone don’t work with iOS 5.1.1. For that matter, I wasn’t able to get gb4iPhone to work with the iPhone 4 on iOS 5.0.1. Lucky for us, ZodTTD announced that he is planning to get his emulators quickly approved for Cydia Store compatibility with iOS 5.1.1 within the coming days. In the meantime, gpSPhone (ZodTTD’s GBA emulator) has been reported to work.
One of the biggest perks to having a jailbroken iPhone is the ability to get my favorite games off their aging cartridges, and into my pocket. (The DMCA is all fun and games until the save batteries die.) Protip: You can have a lot more fun with your gaming backlog if you pair your iPhone with a Wii Remote and a TV using gpSPhone’s built in BTStack implementation along with DisplayOut.
In other ZodTTD-related news, ZodTTD announced that the iOS developer known as Drunkenbass is “coming through” with his work on the interface for n64iphone as of May 21st, and that this was the “final piece” [of the update?]. It’s possible that we’ll be seeing an update of n64iPhone, which, when I last saw it, was more of an impressive tech demo than an enjoyable way to play classic games.
ZodTTD hosts his own repository in Cydia known as ZodTTD & MacCiti, which generally comes as one of the default sources loaded with Cydia. Keep an eye out for updated emulators on the repository. We will keep you posted.
