    Hey guys, I just bought myself an LG Ally today and am really loving everything about the phone. I downloaded the SNEsoid app, been playing ROMs on my computer for awhile now, but every time I download a ROM, <removed> being my main, I get the error message, load ROM failed, please try another file. I tried unzipping also, but none seem to work :confused:. Any tips or help would be greatly appreciated. Thank You!

    Try downloading them onto your computer, then transfer them to your phone/SD Card. Worked for me! :)

    seems like some rom websites downloaders(not all) corrupts the files when downloading to android.

    romhustler seems to work fine without corrupting the files.

    I have been downloading them from my phone, but i will try out transferring files from my computer tomorrow. If I have a Mac, will it cause any problems in the transfer process? To Rob, I did try out that same exact site, but still no luck.

    I use that site and I download the rom to my computer, unzip it and then transfer it to my phone. That works fine.

    It can not read .7z files, you will need to use 7Zip(It's free) to unzip the rom and then put this on your phone.

    Unzip them and you'll be left with the .smc file. Then transfer it onto your SD card.
