Gameboy is one of the most popular games consoles of all time and, until a year or so back, we could download emulators that would let us play the console games on our iOS devices. For some time, Cydia has been left alone for the most part, not updated to work on more than a handful of devices and that has left most of the jailbreak community with no way of downloading any of these emulators. Luckily, one of the most popular, called GBA4iOS [ext link], has now been made available to us with through Pangu jailbreak for those who can install it.
