Homebrew coder ZodTTD has released a new update for gpSPhone, a Game Boy Advance emulator for the Apple iPhone and iPod Touch. The new release, now out of beta, supports firmware 2.x as well as 3.x and includes audio-sync fixes among other things.
As you have most likely seen by the buzz here on ZodTTD.com, gpSPhone has been updated to v6.0.1 and is no longer in beta. It is now available for $6 via the Cydia Store. gpSPhone is a port of a Gameboy Advance emulator by ******** titled gpSP. ******** wrote both gpSP and Temper from scratch. He is the most skilled emulator author I am lucky enough to know. When gpSP was released on the MIPS CPU based PSP, I was eager to port it to the ARM CPU based GP2X. With ******** s permission I made the GP2X port and wrote a quick and dirty dynamic recompiler for it. Soon ******** was introduced to the GP2X scene, rewrote my dynarec (yeah mine sucked in comparison!), and kept the port maintained.
When I took on the task to bring emulators to the (then) newly jailbroken iPhone and iPod Touch, my first choice was gpSP. I have maintained this port for around a year now. ******** had moved on to projects such as Temper during that time. So by bringing gpSPhone to Cydia Store my intentions are to get more development done on gpSPhone. The move from a hobby to a product on Cydia Store motivates like nothing else can.
******** and I spoke before the release of gpSPhone, and we agreed to evenly split the profits. We also are in agreement that gpSPhone is a closed source project.
