    you gotta select the game bios file (search thru your files) when it asks for it. it's so easy.

    i'm assuming your a middle school kid who are very new to electronics.

    No just not into computers sports mainly so you assumed wrong but thank you yeahha.
    However whenever i try to open it, it just says "load bios failed. The valid bios file must be specified in the settings.

    So you downloaded one of the bios files that yeahha googled for u? Try downloading another. Check your settings in gameboid and make sure its pointing to the right file. Mine says sdcard/download/gba_bios.bin

    You should be prompted to choose the bios once you open the emu. If not press menu then settings then gba bios file and find out on your sd

    Start Gameboid, then hit the menu button on your Experia. It's the third button on the bottom of your actual phone. Then a pop up should come up where there's an option for settings.
