How to Install an SNES Emulator on Your iDevice

How about a serious blast from the past?  I haven't touched a Super Nintendo in years!  Thanks to the jailbreak community, there are now Emulators in the Cydia App Store (they have actually been there for awhile...I am a bit late to the game).  Once it was installed, the setup is very simple.  Connecting the WiiMote was SUPER simple!  It seriously took 15 minutes to get it all set up and another 30 minutes to download over 100 games!  Here is the step by step guide to install an SNES emulator on your iDevice.
