Introduction: How to Insert Cheat Codes Into Gba4ios

Picture of How to Insert Cheat Codes Into Gba4ios

Hey guys!

So for a long time, I've wanted a gba emulator for my iPod, and then I finally found GBA4ios

It was the best moment of my life, because i was raised with the gba. But now I wanted cheat codes for my pokemon games (pokemons4ever.) so without further delay, let's get started

Questions, comments, recommendations, requests? Leave them in the comments or email me personally at

BTW: I'm in desperate need of ideas. Please let me know if you have any!

Step 1: Get the App

To get the app, visit this link

If the download isn't working, set the date back to feb 18 2014.

Warning: I cannot be held responsible for your device being damaged by this software.

Step 2: Download a Game

Now it's time to get a game!

Open the app ( if it doesn't open, set the date to the time listed on the previous step) in the top right corner, there will be a +. Click the + and it should pull up another menu. From there, you can find and download any game.(doesn't it make you feel powerful?)

Step 3: Time for Cheats!

Start to play your game. I'm playing pokemon emerald, but you can use any game. Hit menu. Then edit. Then the little +. Type in your cheat name and punch in/copy paste the code. MAKE SURE YOU USE THE RIGHT CODE VESSEL. All of my codes are gameshark.

Here is a list of codes for pokemon emerald

Master code (must be on for other codes to work)

Walk through walls C84AB3C0F5984A158E883EFF92E9660D

Always shiny F3A9A86D4E2629B418452A7DDDE55BCC

Infinite rare candy BFF956FA2F9EC50D

Infinite master ball 128898B6EDA43037

Edit: I get most of my cheats from

I cannot guarantee that all the codes will work.


Step 4: Have Fun!!!

how come my game keep on crashing after I met a shiny?

I have no idea, it could be a bug that hasn't been patched yet. A lot of compatibility issues after the IOS 9 launch.

for some reason it's not working for me. I've done all that you've said but it's not working. Help?

AndreasB15 (author)blackjackrobo2015-11-10

super nice


AndreasB15 (author)2015-11-10

great app works!

Thanks for the tips. It helped me with master balls etc and didn't need a master code. The master code you wrote are however wrong, I believe. The correct one is "D8BAE4D9
09D8882C" AND the pokemon encounter does work. Like you wrote has more of the cheats. Here is a link to all the pokemon codes and more . Your welcome :)

bembumi. (author)bembumi.2015-10-21

well the link didn't work out so well... so I'll try again.

There you go

Do you have code for unlimited PP Up? I have gba4ios 2.1

SunkAttorney (author)2015-08-29

Hi, I have gba4ios 2.1 on my iPhone 5. I have emerald and light platinum Roms and have tried multiple cheat codes for master balls and rare candies but none work..? I've tried the codes above also and they're not working... Tried them with and without master codes. Any ideas? Do I have to input them at a specific point of the load up? Just baffled and any help would be appreciated! Starting to miss the good ol' surf glitch aha

Many people have come to me with the exact same problem, as far as I can see this issue has been fixed by using different codes. For whatever reason, certain codes only work with certain devices, so I can't really tell you what codes will and won't work for your device or really any other device than the ipod 5. However, one thing I can tell you is that some cheat code websites have fake codes or just incorrect codes. Its really all trial and error for finding the right ones.

Pokemon modifier codes do not work with gba4ios

Topshi (author)2015-01-09

Look man you are awsome for doing's good there are peoples still care about gba and helping others but i really need some help.i have both gpsphone and gba4ios 2.1 the thing is that all cheat codes work exept those with pokemon modifier

TheStuUurgE (author)Topshi2015-01-20

Thanks for the support, but there is no way to get pokemon modification cheats that work on gba4ios

Topshi (author)TheStuUurgE2015-01-21

ok no modifier codes for gba4ios....but what about gpsphone do you know any way or am i destined to not comlpete this game :/ or do you know any way to link gba4ios with the vba for pc?

TheStuUurgE (author)Topshi2015-01-21

I don't know about other apps and programs, so I can't see if these will work or not. I suggest you look online about this sort of thing. I've studied Gba4ios, but I can't say for any other programs.

Topshi (author)TheStuUurgE2015-02-01

Thanx anyway man.i'll see what i can find out.see ya :)

Topshi (author)2015-01-10

Oh come on Pls answer someone...i even tryed the cheats on us version of pokemon emerald and still didn't work.i got them from this website Can you tell me if they are good or is it me?am i doing something wrong?

TheStuUurgE (author)Topshi2015-01-20

I cannot explain your dilemma. I spend a lot of time trying to find codes. There is no exact code that will or will not work for your device. From what I hear, codes that work vary from device to device

Topshi (author)2015-01-09

Can you help me plssss...i forgot to mention that i have an italian version of pokemon emerald and i'd love to catch em all :)

TheStuUurgE (author)2015-01-06

Julsboredasf (author)2015-01-05

TheStuUurgE (author)2014-12-25

Some of the questions I'm seeing cannot be answered by me, but look at the edit on step 4

ThatGuyy664 (author)2014-12-16

Ok so I have pokemon fire red and I'm trying to put in the shiny cheat, will someone please comment it and also dose it have to be on gameshark or code breaker because I have the infinite rare candy cheat on code breaker and it works fine so please help

TheStuUurgE (author)2014-12-14

Not every code is compatible with gba4ios, if they all were then I wouldn't have much trouble replying to all the emails im getting

thomas.lia.3 (author)2014-11-28

Please my cheats codes didn't work!

dac.trinh.35 (author)2014-11-20

how come I don't have the cheat code thing in my menu?

TheStuUurgE (author)dac.trinh.352014-11-24

It is likely because you aren't running the updated app. Try to download 2.0, or it won't have the cheat capability.

rudy30 (author)2014-05-11

You realize using that is slightly illegal

eliut.velasquez (author)rudy302014-10-14

Umm seriously? If you own the game already its not. And even if you did not then who cares? Its a game people enjoy playing. Dont be a buzzkill.

it is still illegal though. even if you own the game you aren't allowed to reproduce it the same way that if you own a dvd you're not allowed to make copies of it. No one really cracks down on people who pirate games as much as they crack down on those who pirate music though, so most people think this is ok.

Kyle EllisM (author)2014-10-31

hey can u post the eevee code for sapphire it's not working :/

TheStuUurgE (author)2014-05-11

If you own the games you download, than it's not illegal (author)TheStuUurgE2014-09-27

How? i dont have any cheats restore in my FireRed version

How can i create?

TheStuUurgE (author)2014-06-21

To collect the items using cheat codes, you have to go to the pokemon center and withdraw them from your item box

aflores44 (author)2014-06-19

how do i get the infinite rare candies.. Are they supposed to be in the bag?

aflores44 (author)aflores442014-06-19

all the other gamesharks works,well the same with the masterballs..

TheStuUurgE (author)2014-06-10

It could be that you are using an un-updated form of the emulator or you are using the emulator for jail broken iPods or phones
