    Hi. I just got the Samsung Fascinate. This is my first smartphone, so i've never downloaded apps. Anyway, I downloaded a gba_bios.bin file and I created the subfolder "gameboids" inside the "game" folder and moved all the roms I downloaded to the gameboid folder. Now here's what happens

    1) I open the gameboid app
    2) it asks me to select a ROM and it presents a list of all my roms
    /sdcard/games/gameboides
    3) I select gba_bios.bin
    4) the screen transitions to show a gameboy controller with buttons to click on (they vibrate)
    5)This is where I get lost. I have no idea what to do afterward. I did everything but actually load the ROM.

    Can you help me?

    THANKS!!!

    When it's asking you to select a ROM, you're picking the .bios? That would mean you're trying to play the .bios like a game.

    You should set the location of the .bios in the settings and pick an actual game .ROM when it asks you for one.

    Yeah you only have to set the bios.bin once the first time. After that just pick the ROM you want
