In the last few months, jailbreaks have slid out of the reach of most users. Apple seems to have beaten the jailbreak developers and has managed to stop jailbreaking and that means we can no longer download any of our favorite tweaks, including games emulators. These were the only way that we could play console games on our iOS devices, games like Mario Kart, Super Mario Bros, and Pokémon, to name just a few. GBA4iOS [ext link] is a popular games emulator that has now been made available without a jailbreak, offering us a huge choice of Gameboy games to play on our iOS devices.
