  1. iOS 13.5 and GBA4IOS don’t works…

  2. i think it has something to do with the certificate for verifying only lasting like a week at most

  3. Heres a fix that I think might work:
    use a computer and download cydia impactor and a downloaded gba4ios file that can be found online: here might work.

    then hook up your phone and close itunes.
    select your phone from the drop down menu in the window.
    then use your apple id and password (this is used to create a certificate in your name)
    then it should work. also, i dont think that you are able to have both the impactor version and the other one. try to transfer your saves by going into itunes, clicking on your phone on the top left, apps, scroll down, and click on gba4ios iOS 13.5, save everything there (or use dropbox sync), then you can delete the old gba cuz all your progress is on your computer, load the cydia impactor gba4ios on, and i think that should work. havent tested this but im sure it would because ive used this for other apps and they have yet to be revoked. in theory this should make it signed in your name so it wont be revoked.

  4. So i’m playing Final Fantasy XV on GBA4iOS 13.5 and after update it won’t load my savegame. help plz


    1. I keep getting the “Unable to donwload” error.

  10. Same thing here. During the game i already upload the savegame on dropbox, if i redownload the game the saved games will be there and i will continue the gameplay normally ??? Or this doesnt work?


    1. It worked for me last time when I downloaded it again. I used the Dropbox method.

      1. That’s promising

      2. How does it work using DropBox???

        1. You just go to the settings of the gba4ios and you activate the sync with dropbox. Then the saved games will be uploaded to the dropbox and after you redownload the gba4ios and download the rom of that game the saved games will be automatically appear again so you will be able to continue without start over again. BTW THE GBA4IOS IS ABLE TO DOWNLOAD AGAIN. HAVE FUN

          1. Theres no dropbox sync

      3. How do you connect it to dropbox?

    1. Same, guess we just need to wait for new update without uninstall our gba4ios. Hope they fix soon.

    2. If you download Dropbox in the future, you don’t have to worry about losing any game data because it saves it to the app. Just a heads up for everyone because I know that feeling of starting over.

      1. You can get your saves back with iBackupBot.. Look it up, i backed up mine, now i can play on pc, while waiting for the update..

        1. How do you find the game on inaction bot. I downloaded it but can’t find it

    3. Can’t believe AUG 9 I used 4 hour to caught that kangaskhan in safari zone. Then saved beside articuno happily prepared master ball for second day. Now screwed.

      1. By me it says GBA4iOS is no longer available! What should i do?!

        1. Set date back to 2010 and then open.

  31. I have ios 13.5 and I have been trying everywhere to get either a GBA or DS emulator but all of them are olders ios softwares. I can’t download hipstore , on mojo installer it wouldn’t work. I have tried Cydia and I will not jail break my phone. I really want to play but I have no idea how to download any of them or find one for the ios 13.5 ;(

    1. Game Boy Advance Emulator means GBA4iOS iOS 13.5 is getting prepared and you’d see the updated game emulator for iPhone very soon with lot of new features. As far as iOS 13.5 is concern, you’d not see it more than for a month as stable version.
