191w ago - Today ZodTTD has compiled a special version of his SNES4iPhone emulator specifically for non-jailbroken iDevices including Apple's new iPad and has shared a video of Mario Kart running on it below.
ZodTTD states that while he does have access to the iPad jailbreak, he did have to utilize official dev tools to make SNES4iPhone work on a non-jailbroken iPad.
To quote: "The build of SNES4iPhone running on my iPad as seen in the video was actually based on an AppStore app I submitted called "snesty". Apple quickly rejected it right after pulling the NES emulator.
I combined snesty with some SNES4iPhone features such as using the private API called CoreSurface. I used Apple developer tools and self signed it."

If you attempt to access the Wi-Fi Connection with your Mii licence set as Hitler, you will receive a message stating that such nick names are forbidden and that you must modify your Mii name to proceed.
On the other hand, those who connect to the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection as other notorious gentlemen such as Stalin and Osama will be able to do so without a message/disconnect.
