    Hi there,
    I've been wondering if there was such thing as a GBA Emulator for my LG A380 Flip Phone. I know there probably isn't one, but I could use it. A quick reply would be appreciated.

    no, there was never one made, and the specs are too weak to run it anyway

    Your only real hope is to try the Java emulators that Vampent made years ago, and that's assuming the LG A380 supports the Java framework that most flip-phone apps use. PhoneScoop doesn't even know what type of CPU is in that phone. In any case, I can't seem to find the Java versions (not Nokia-specific versions) on Vampent's blog anymore, so I'd check out Archive.org's copy of vampent.com instead. In particular, this page of the GBA emulator: https://web.archive.org/web/20130320203223/http://www.vampent.com/vbag.htm

    If nothing else, here's something you can use if you want to try his vNES emulator for phones, something tucked away in a .txt file on my hard drive. At this point I don't really consider this piracy. I had Super Mario Brothers running on my Sony-Ericsson w300i flip phone with only 2 frameskip! XD

    So I just checked my phone and it has Uno on it (It came with the phone). The java version is CLDC 1.1 and MIDP 2.1.

    I'm actually not sure if that will work at all. I've never used the GBA one actually. I've used MEboy and vNES before, and they all produced *.jar files which I was able to just copy into my applications folder via a USB cable.
