Jailbreaks have long been the norm for millions of iOS users. It was something we took for granted, the only way to get the iOS device we really wanted but now that’s not possible. Gone are the days of downloading tweaks, apps, and themes that would change the way our devices worked or gave us extra features and one of the most popular features was the games emulator. These let us play our favorite console games on our devices and now, thanks to one developer, a popular emulator called GBA4iOS [ext link] is now available without a jailbreak.

What is GBA4iOS?
GBA4iOS is, without a doubt, one of the most talked-about emulators. Before iOS 8 was released, the developer, Riley Testut, managed to get GBA4iOS into the app store, using an exploit in the firmware. With iOS 8 Apple patched it and this forced the developer to remove it. For a while, it was in Cydia but was withdrawn for redevelopment. Now its back, it’s bigger than ever before and it works beautifully to provide you with a games console experience on your iOS device.
Much of this is down to the fact that the developer has used some of the iOS SDK tools to build the emulator and that means he can provide us with some pretty cool features. Proving popular, GBA4iOS has far exceeded the 10 million mark for downloads, offering you the tools to play a whole range of Gameboy, Gameboy Advance and Gameboy Color games.
