How to Install ROMs to iNDS:
You should already have your emulator installed by the time you get here. It’s just another couple of steps before you can play your favorite Nintendo DS games on your iPhone or iPad. We have two methods for you to follow:
Method 1: Built-in Browser
You can use the browser built-in to the emulator to find DS ROMs; here’s how:
- Open your app drawer and launch iNDS
- Go to the top-right corner and tap on Search
- Use the search bar to find a game
- Choose one from the results list and tap it
- Tap on Download and tap Save
- Once the ROM has been downloaded you can launch it
While this is the easiest way to do it, be aware that not all games are available in this method. That brings us to the next method:
Method 2: External ROMs
With this method, you will use a search engine to find your ROMs
- Find a reputable source for your ROM and download it
- Tap it and, on the screen that opens, tap on Open in iNDS
- Open the iNDS emulator and you will see the ROM you just downloaded
- Tap Launch Normally and the game will start
You can also change the settings for the controller and enable Dropbox Syncing by tapping the game name. It is pretty easy to install ROMs and if you already have some on your computer, just use iTunes to transfer them to iNDS – you can also use other transfer tools if you prefer. Whatever you do, enjoy your Nintendo DS games.
