Snes9x for Blackberry Playbook is now available for download for SIDE LOADING.

The current version is and works on OS 1.0.x and 2.0.x.

Snes9x for Playbook General Execution Information:

First Run

When you run Snes9x for Playbook for the first time it will automatically creates a number of default directories as well as the default configuration file and the default test rom file. These default test rom will be run during this first execution of the program.

Directory Creation

When you run Snes9x for Playook it will automatically create the following directory on your playbook if they do not exist:


This will also contain a number of subdirectories including the rom directory.

Default Files

Snes9x for Playook will place the default snes9x.conf file into the folder /accounts/1000/shared/misc/snes9x-pb/ if it does not exist. Snes9x for Playook will place the default test rom into the folder /accounts/1000/shared/misc/snes9x-pb/rom/ if it does not exist.

If you delete these files at any time they WILL be recreate the next time you run Snes9x for Playbook.

Adding Roms

Simply place your roms into the folder /accounts/1000/shared/misc/snes9x-pb/rom/

Filename – snes9x.conf

The default snes9x.conf file will have the file name commented out. If you uncomment (remove #) and add a file name that rom will be the first rom that is run when Snes9x for Playbook is executed.

The file name does not require the .smc file extension but it is recommended if you want that rom to be picked up by the Automatic Rom Selector/Cycler.

If the file has the .smc extension then it must have it in the snes9x.conf file, if there is no extension on the file then it cannot have the extension in the .conf.


File in rom directory is ttt.smc Filename = ttt.smc

File in rom directory is ttt Filename = ttt

File in rom directory is TTT.SMC Filename = TTT.SMC

Automatic Rom selector/Cycler

If you do not add a Filename to the snes9x.conf file Snes9x for Playbook will automatically run the roms that are in your rom folder, sorted alphabetically it will load the first one.

Whether or not you have added a Filename in the snes9x.conf you can use the next button on screen to load the next rom in the rom folder. Snes9x for Playbook will continually cycle through all of the roms in your rom folder.

Note: In order for the Rom selector to read your rom it must have the .smc file extension


You may edit the configuration in the snes9x.conf file all you want but your results may vary and are not supported by us in any way.

Some configuration fields may not be supported at this time.

    Nice app… I have tried the same and at times people really believe that the screen is cracked 🙂
    Thanks for sharing

  • prettybabyj

    this does not go beyond level 3 and it just disappoints

  • DrewLewStew

    I installed, upon opening the app, it has a preset game, and the screen looks like an old nintendo game whose colors and characters got all jumbled… no option to open or close any other Roms

  • RayMejia

    this app gets the job done.  You get play some old classics that  I haven’t seen in 15 years.  Jurassic Park 1 & 2, Donkey Kong

  • seo4

    There’s definately a lot to know about this subject. I love all of the points you have made.

  • PH3000

    what last version?

  • AnasNassar

    their isnt a version for playbook ?

  • sonyalyn

    I have restored the phone to factory, updated again to 10.1, reloaded all of my data, and sideloaded the apps again and the system still is not opening the apps!  The apps now do appear to be trying to open, but the progress bar gets about three quarters of the way finished and then the app shuts down. 
    Could there be some leftover code from the 10.2 runtime left in my back-up file?  I had not backed up my files since late July, so I had to back-up the files after attempting to remove these two files.  At the time of uninstalling, I did get a message of “535 permanent” when I attempted to uninstall the bar file. But, I wouldn’t have thought any permanent code would be in my applications.  I would think they would be associated with the OS.  But, maybe the problem now is the back-up file.  
    Please help if you can.  I no longer have a major feature of the phone any longer if I can’t use sideloaded apps!

  • sonyalyn

    I attempted to restore an old application back-up file that would not have included any of this Android runtime code.  The apps still get about three-quarters of the way finished and then the app shut down.  So it doesn’t appear to be the application file that is at issue. Something about the phone has fundamentally changed because of this runtime program.  I fear I will have to do a complete wipe of the phone just to be able to get back to my starting point.  The restore to factory did not help.

    Before I download this, can anyone tell me if it works on the playbook?

  • VelenciaDixon

    I would Love to play this game on my blackberry playbook

  • stevenb_jones

    Can anyone tell me if the Blackberry Android Runtime 4.3 works on the Playbook? It has been included in the Playbook and Blackberry 10 Casual Games area, but I don’t want to try it in case it causes lots of issues.

  • cxvader

    sonyalyn same thing with me. i had to wipe it TWICE .. still does not work

  • cxvader

    sonyalyn please tell me if you found something out :/

  • sonyalyn

    Unfortunately, I only have theories because I ended up having to get a new phone – somehow the repeated data restoring wiped out the text messaging capability! I have theories about the 10.2 Runtime. I believe it did rewrite code in my OS and application files that could not be removed. I couldn’t restore the application backup file to my phone without restoring the rewritten code. Lesson learned there – I need to backup more often. But, I also believe that the BlackBerry Link could have been the problem with the text messaging. So now I’ve just decided to not use Link except to sync Outlook stuff. I think my big takeaway is to think twice before installing something that tweaks the operating system.
