Yes !

Already jailbreaked your apple?

if so then load the Emulators from Installer and run them.

(If not then see my instructables for hacking 1.1.2 and 1.1.1 iPhone/iTouches)

If you can install the emulators then just add the following Sources to installer and ...viola!

The Roms can be installed and run in a few minutes!

Just Watch!

Step 1: PSX

where are the sources exactlly, and btw, you may want to add a disclaimer for the psx emulator, because they are still making playstation games. this is "legal" more or less as long as they no longer make profit, or have discontiued making games/systems for that type of system.

 get over, there is much worse happening now a days that deserves more attention from the legal force than people hacking MP3 players

bobhill125 (author)2009-01-01

roms are illega;

Your mistaken.
Roms are NOT illegal.
Under certain circumstances.
If you own said game, and you download a ROM for it, 
you are preforming no legal crime.
If you do not own it, however, you are breaking the law.
Though, most emulators and roms are of previously made games that are no longer produced, i hardly think anyone would care if you were playing them.

erckgillis (author)tater_tots_932008-01-17

what? give name, files or steps...I need more to help you...what source? the "Installer" once setup from my jailbreak instructables can be edited to add new sources that have preformaed GBA, PSX or NES games for the iphone/iTouch emulators. If you download from installer using the sources liwsted (NOT with safari or with a browser...these are NOT formatted) then it'll work fine. so 1st - jailbreak your 1.1.1 or 1.1.2 phone/touch 2nd- setup installer 3rd - add new sources to installer app ( edit/add/sources) 4th - Go to new sources in installer app 5th - download game ROMS from sources 6th- run emulators 7th - add ROMS to game and play! Kewl...

chilly9781 (author)2008-01-18

great article! Problem is, I'm at school and I can't access YouTube. Essentially I'm asking I'd you could put the URL's into a texty-ier format?

erckgillis (author)chilly97812008-01-18

sorry no...then I get SPAM on my youtube accounts. How about a NEW instructables! " How to hack school/library computers to SURF to ANY SITES on the internet!" E

chilly9781 (author)erckgillis2008-01-21

I'll check that out but I've tried about 2 dozen proxy servers and my school's network has their asses covered. Bleh. I was just asking for the sources in a texty-er format. Great article, this has been bugging me for a while, so thanks.

erckgillis (author)chilly97812008-02-04

your welcome...

schools cannot cover everything they use keywords like "proxy" to find and block find sites with little or no keyword hits...

here are TEN TIPS from WebStuffScan


Before you try out any of the methods listed here, I suggest you install Firefox browser. For faster and smoother internet access, Firefox is the best browser available out there. When you are accessing proxy sites or similar sites ensure that you use Firefox not Internet Explorer.

Browse the web faster. Get Firefox with Google Toolbar

Internet censoring is now everywhere. In my office Orkut is blocked since there was an Orkut virus scare. Countries such as China, Saudi Arabia etc. routinely block many websites. Interestingly entire and similar blog sites were banned in India not long ago. So it is no wonder that many of us are looking for ways to access blocked websites.

Last week I did an investigation into the various methods available for bypassing website access restrictions. I have shortlisted them below as ” Top 10 methods to access banned websites”.

Top Ten methods to access banned websites

1. Use IP address - This is the simplest way to bypass domain name based access restrictions. Instead of the domain name such as use the direct IP address. To find the IP address use one of the free host to IP online conversion tools such as

2. Use Google cache - If you are not bothered whether the content is latest on a site, Google cache is best. Do a Google search for the site and then click on the cached link below the search results.

3. Use an Anonymizer - In this method you access a third party site which in turn routes your request to the required server. Some services provide URL encryption also. The problem is that most of these servers are no longer free. Do a google search for the latest list as this is a very dynamic area Following are some services which still works(free!),

Daily Best Links - Hides original URL and provides an array of access of options. The is one of the best free servers.
Anonymouse - This works, but URL is visible and hence may be blocked by the filtering software.

4. Use Online Translation Tools - In this method, we can use the translation service as a web proxy. Following are the best links I know of. Again Google is your best friend for more resources.

Altavista Babel fish - In the above replace with the site you want. You can also visit Babel fish site.
Google Translate - Similar to Babel fish.

5. Use Google Mobile search - Google mobile search works, but output may not be optimal. This is very similar to using a Web proxy.

6. Use a public Proxy server - There are many free proxy servers out in the Web. Note that in order to use these you have to change internet connection settings in Internet Explorer or whatever browser you use. This is one such list.

7. Get web pages via email - This is useful if you need a single Web page. Obviously accessing large files is not possible. Given below are some examples.

You can use SEND in the body of the message and send it to to retrieve home page.
You can also check out services at web2mail which includes web page subscriptions.
G.E Boyd has an extensive list of servers. Note that many in the list are no longer working.

9. Use Tor Distributed Proxy - Tor is an advanced proxy server using multiple anonymous servers for a single Web request. This requires an application to be downloaded and installed.

8. Your own proxy server - This is an advanced technique and is probably the best. This requires your own proxy server hosted either at your home or at a hosting service provider. You can enable SSL encryption and prevent any snooping on the content as well. Also put some access control, otherwise someone can find the service and misuse it (Trust me, there are many who are looking for such an opportunity!).

Use Apache Web server as proxy server - A bit complex setup.
Use Privoxy - - This is the recommended approach. Please see this page for more details.
Use PHPProxy as a Web Proxy - You can use PHPProxy to setup a Web proxy.

10. Use alternate content providers - When everything fails, you can use alternate service providers. For example if Gmail is blocked at your place, you can take another obscure mail address and enable email forward at Gmail.

Be careful when you are using public proxy servers. It is possible for the guy who is hosting the service to snoop on the data that is passing through. So I wouldn’t recommend putting any important information such credit card details when you are using public proxy server method.

update 1 (Nov 26) - Sharjeel has got an impressive list of 300+ web proxies.

update 2 (Dec 22) - Check out my latest how to on running your own windows Http proxy server.

update 3 (Feb 01) - Please see comments below for some good tips. Also some of the sites mentioned in the article are no longer working.

Nice dude. Thanks, I'll definitely try that. I was also thinking of using a key katcher to steal my least favorite teachers password and then use that to log in through the firewall. Kudos to you and your helpful demeanor.

yes, keylogger dongles plug into the keyboard port and capture all keystrokes...

Hmm.. I have the GBA on my phone, but I haven't run the PSX one yet.. It looked kind of sluggish, but I may try that one later on. : ) Is it decently fast? I haven't ever added any extra sources though.. I just added my roms manually with FTP myself from my PC. : ) I may have to try that out as well. Tabz

Always slower on ARM processor. some ROM's work better than others.

GorillazMiko (author)2008-01-13

Too smart... nice job, I will have to try this when I get my iPod touch (hopefully).

erckgillis (author)GorillazMiko2008-01-13

Thx, good luck and have fun! If anyone post anything like where are the 'steps' how do I do...blank blank blank....ugh! Then they are newbies to hacking and need to go back to basic jailbreaking. E
