The use of these cheats isn’t so easy, but not also very difficult, let’s try learn! :D

Cheats that can be used are Gameshark or PAR.

1. The cheats will be written in a txt file, so you must create one in your Desktop. Now write the first line of this code:

gameshark_v3 cheatname

…or, in case it’s a PAR cheat…

PAR_v3 cheatname

Where GameShark or PAR are the type, and “v3″ it’s the version of that one, in the 99% of the cases it is V3), “cheatname”it’s the name you would like to give at the cheat (it’s only for remember what does that code! You can change it how do you want.) , the XXX letters will be replaced by the codes (those letters must be written in series composed by 8 letters and numbers everyone).

This is a practic example (master code of pokemon fire red):

gameshark_v3 Master
72BC6DFB E9CA5465
8D671FD9 6F6BEFF2
78DA95DF 44018CB4
28F71F08 ABB36538
69BA4F26 72716663

2. Now you must save the txt file with the exact name of your ROM, and with “cht” extensions. For example if your rom is named “something.gba”, your cht’s file will be named “something.cht”.

3. Now use your SSH connection for transfer your new cheats’ file from the PC/Mac to your iPhone or iPod Touch in the directory: /private/var/mobile/Media/ROMs/GBA/.

4. Start gpSPhone and select the game wich you have decided to use cheats, tap “menu” and then “Toggle Loaded Cheats”, select the cheats you want and your game will be modified:


Note: the money is infinite!

An another note: not all cheats are working!
