One of the biggest reasons for installing Cydia was to download any number of games emulators so that we could play some of our favorite console games on our iOS devices. The iPhone and the iPad were not designed to play these sorts of games, but the emulators made it possible. Right now Cydia is not really being updated, denying millions of users’ access to these emulators but luckily, we can download one of the top emulators, GBA4iOS without needing to jailbreak first.
