  1. OMGSH Thanks so MUCH this works 100% thank you thank you thank you!!! Use this method people it works! Even though the media file link above doesn't work... HERE'S WHAT I DID:
    I Googled the gba_bios.bin file, then I created a folder called 'Gameboid' on my SD card like you said, after I downloaded the 'gba_bios.bin' file on my computer I dragged it to the 'Gameboid' folder. Then I downloaded 'Gameboid' application off the Google Play Store/Market and I downloaded 'ROM Buddy' application which automatically makes a folder called 'roms' on my SD card for the ROMS/games that I'll download from ROM Buddy... then I dragged the folder 'roms' into the 'Gameboid' folder. 'roms' is it's own folder AND 'gba_bios.bin' is it's own item in the 'Gameboid' folder.
    Then I go on my phone, go to ROM Buddy choose the games I want to download and then I go to the actual 'Gameboid' application on my phone and it shows all the ROMS downloaded from ROM Buddy... tap on a game and it's smooth sailing from there! Hope this method help also.

  2. Currently, you cannot obtain Gameboid from the market anymore...BUT i have a solution. Gameboid is still available to download in the slideme market.
    Open that url in your android phone and it will prompt you to download it. After that, you can open the file and it will still have gameboid in the market.

    Download and enjoy :)
