    Do you have the gba_bios.bin?

    Assuming you have gba_bios.bin (if you don't, try this open source one or look elsewhere, then put it at /retroarch/cores/system/gba_bios.bin), you need to disable audio because it doesn't work. Go to Settings -> Audio Settings -> Audio Enable OFF

    Not only a "build" process... That emulator would require a port/adaptation process (because is not made directly for 3ds).

    ....... Yes. I'm aware. There's a 3DS branch in the src folder and it's actively being developed.

    Not going to happen anytime soon above 9.2. If you're on 9.2/lower, you can install .cia's and play them like eShop games. We will have to wait for an ARM11/ARM9 Kernel exploit to do so on 9.3+

    It could happen on the Wii because it has IOS's for each bunch of services. Modify/Create a custom IOS and you have access to pretty much every service/process on the Wii.
