How to Download NESEmu:
Earlier we said there was an easy way to install NESEmu on your iOS device and here it is. A third-party app installer called TweakBox offers more than 2000 unofficial apps, games, emulators, tweaks, and more, all for free.
Here’s how to get it:
- Use the linked tutorial to install TweakBox on your iPhone or iPad
- Open it and use the search facility to find NESEmu
- Tap on the app, install it ( following any in-app directions ) and wait
- When the NESEmu icon is on your home screen, it’s yours to use.
Simple as that
But there’s a problem
There are no actual games in NESEmu. It’s down to you to install the ROMS you want, and you can find some by doing a simple search on Google, which will then turn up ROMS for your favorite games; simply download them to your SD card or internal memory and play them from within the emulator app.

Fix Untrusted Developer Error:
Because TweakBox and NESEmu are unofficial apps you will need to fix the untrusted developer error:

- Trust the enterprise developer and the app will work perfectly.
