    Which generation Nano do you have?
    You can only hack a 1st Generation iPod nano.

    There are 4 generations
    1st gen - Looks like that
    2nd gen - Looks like that but doesnt have aliminium backing
    3rd gen - Fat little nano
    4th gen - The brand new nano.

    You can put Pacman, Doom 1 and 2 and GB/GBC games.
    The chances of newer gens being hacked are slim, thanks to the iPhone/iPod Touch.
    To do this, you need to install a replacement firmware called Rockbox.
    When installed, you can switch between stock iPod OS and Rockbox [​IMG]

    I know you can run GBC/GB on the ipods, but running GBA on an nano really seems impossible. It may be possible to do it on an iPhone or an iTouch, but a nano? The nano basically has no processing power needed to run an emulator for GBA.

    you kidding me? look at your number of buttons and ask again.
    you have 5 buttons in total and a sliding moving, and a GBA has 6 buttons and a D-Pad
