Not at all. This GBA Emulator app has been developed in a way that makes it legitimate to use because it doesn’t hack into the iOS and doesn’t contravene any security protocols in place on the iOS firmware. If you do need to return your device to an Apple Store for any reason and you are not quite sure, you can easily delete the app and install it again ( from the steps above ) at a later date.

  1. Hello, just got the app but for some reason no games are beeing shown, it just says “no games” and something about me Dropbox sync. What am I doing wrong?

    1. hi, you need to download the ROMS from online sources. There is no legal way for us to share ROM’s. Maybe some ROM sites for GBA Games could help, but that’s totally upto you as its a grey area.

  2. I downloaded it, but when I try to open it, it says that the developer isn’t trusted on this iPhone. What should I do to fix this?

  3. I keep getting this error when trying to install with impactor.

    file: installation.cpp; line: 42; what:

    Failed to verify code signature of /private/var/installd/Library/Caches/ : 0xe8008016 (The executable was signed with invalid entitlements.)

  4. I downloaded it on friday but didnt have dropbox sync on. I put it 10 hours on the weekend and today i cant get on the app, i come back here to find out theres an updated version but I cant get back on the app, so is everything I had lost? Or is there a way to retrieve that file?

  5. Cant open the app…. a pop up box saying that the developer isnt trusted by apple… what should i do

  6. Hi, Does this versions license get revoked after 5-6 days like all the others? I have been looking for one which can stick out for longer. Also dropbox sync doesnt work. Thanks.

    1. hi, this one will work for a long time. The EMus4u Certificate was renewed today and it will last till Apple revokes it again. The developer will restore it back within few hours, so you are safe.

  7. GBA4IOS isn’t working for ios13. Only for a few days and then it says it can’t be opened. Needs a internet connection to do a check up, but also when I have an internet connection, it won’t work… anyway to fix this?

    1. e are working with the developer of GBA4iOS to get the iOS 13 version working. You can also try out Delta Emulator which is a new version of GBA4iOS app, with new devices support.

  8. None of the apps that I’m trying to download are working (the emulators). Is there a problem with all of the licenses being revoked or could it be an iOS update issue? I have an older iPhone 6s and my software is 12.3.1

  9. When I download gba4ios thru emu, it says that the app cannot be installed at this time. Anyway to fix it?

  10. I was using GBA4ios for a few months now, and after downloading it for the 4th time (revoked licenses) it won’t load the load states from Dropbox. Does this have something to do with version 2.1.5?

  11. I installed it last Saturday and after three days of working it is revoked… i can’t verify it anymore so it is not opening..
    Will it be fixed soon ?

  12. Dropbox sync is not working for me. I had GBA4IOS 2.1. I have the saved file in my dropbox but it doesn’t appear to sync
