    I always download the ROM versions of my games on my computer, unzip them, and then transfer them to my phone via USB. This has always worked for me in the past.

    Also keep in mind that using a ROM of a game that you own is perfectly legal, however downloading and keeping ROMs that you do now own could be viewed as illegal. Have fun! :)

    This isn't actually true - while under American law you ARE entitled to a backup of your games it must be made by you, and from your copy - there's a statement on Nintendo's website that says this.

    All I'm saying is that while ethically there is absolutely nothing wrong with downloading a ROM you only the cartridge for, legally there is - I just don't want people thinking they're on the right side of the law when they actually might not be.
