Fugu before, then you must read this tutorial first.
Launch Cydia. Press the Featured Packages button.
Press the NES button. Press the Install button.
Press the Confirm button. When it has finished installing press the Home button on the iPhone and

it is being created Remotely, then click Create.
Double click the ROMs folder, and click the New Folder button again. Name this folder NES, and
make sure it is being created Remotely, then click Create.
Double click the NES folder, and put your ROMs into it. Please do not e-mail me asking
me how to do this, or where to find games, I will not reply. I do not condone the illegal piracy of
copyrighted Nintendo games, and I provide no support in obtaining or using pirated images.
Copy the files over to the NES folder. Make sure all your game files have 3 Xs in the Permissions column.
If they don't have these permissions, then right click each file, one at a time, select Get Info.
Change your permissions to match these, and click Apply.
Press the NES icon on the SpringBoard and you will be taken to your list of installed ROMs. There is also a Settings
button with a lot of preferences you can change. Press a game title to play it.
