    Sorry if this is a stupid question. I'm fairly new to androids and completely new to the use of emulators. Anyway, I want to get a Game Boy Advanced emulator on my device (To play Pokemon Emerald and Fire Emblem), but I can't seem to find any (free of otherwise) in the marked other than Mojo GBA, which many people say doesn't work.
    Do they not have them anymore, or am I doing something wrong?
    Thank you.

    Emulators are sort of grey area, there were issues surrounding copyright claims on some of the more popular ones, but they appear to be free now via the link above so they're technically ok.

    What's not ok it's discussing downloading ROMs and BIOS files etc, so please don't do that.

    Take a look here:, it's got some pretty good info. :)

    Yea don't discuss roms, you're on your own for that. But if you search you can easily find some very COOL ROMS as well as some straight DOPE ROMS.

    Use Gameboid. you can download the apk and install it using a app installer (my Sony Xperia cam with one pre installed)

    My apologies. Knew about roms being a no-no here, but didn't know that went for bios files as well, but i guess it should have been obvious given how other sites react to discussing them. Will remember that.

    There's another GBA emulator called VGBA on the market, dunno why that wasn't removed as well (along with multiple other emulators). It costs money however and i've no idea how well it works. I only ran into a few games that have issues running in Gameboid anyways (and they're not the more popular ones anyways). I did have to use an older version to get the sound in Golden Sun 2 to work however.

    No biggie. Like I said, the whole emulator thing is a grey area.
