    is it possible for someone to inject the ps1 bios files into the ps1 emulator retroarch cia because I can't find the correct bios files anywhere...

    (if freeshop and other cia installers have not been banned from gbatemp, then why have any good reason to ban bios files from being shared any longer?)

    Dude literally just google ps1 bios or scph1001.bin and you'll be flooded with results

    You can find all these bios files easily in Google. Pretty sure there are also packs that have all the ps1 bios available and you then just take the ones you need.

    Neither FreeShop nor CIAngel ship with any copyrighted content. You're asking someone to upload something here that contains copyrighted content. That's the difference.

    None, just throw scph1001.bin in the folder.

    you are saying that giving an app that allows you to download copyrighted content is more legal than giving it straight forward?

    Both are illegal, it's just that it's against GBATemp's rules.

    Eh, it's the same reason any Torrent client isn't banned. It's all because there are legal things you can use them for. :P

    it's because if this website hosted copyrighted material, then the home page would look a little something like this

    While things like freeshop allow you to do illegal things, they aren't actually breaking any copyright laws themselves and can therefore be hosted on this website without gbatemp getting into trouble

    my dad works for nintendo.
    let me explain.
    freeshop is an homebrew created by scratch by a guy in he community.. it doesn't have nintendo property inside it, neither nintendo code, nothing inside is owned by any company.
    all the code and content in the freeshop cia is made by an user wich didn't copyright anything and freely distributed it to the comunity...

    as for bios files.
    it's sony property..
    sony programed and created that code, it's copyrighted, maybe even patented, they own it and didn't give you permission to freely share it

    Because facilitating piracy is distinctly different than providing copyrighted material (granted freeshop still probably falls under grey area, because facilitating piracy is still against the law in some countries, I believe).
