Remember GBA4iOS? It was a Gameboy Advance emulator for iOS that took advantage of an App Store enterprise deployment loophole to let you play GBA games on your iPhone or iPad, no jailbreak required. Unfortunately, Apple closed the loophole… until now.

On the official GBA4iOS website, a counter is ticking down to the release of GBA4iOS 2.0, an update to the popular GameBoy Advance emulator. In just 18 hours, as of writing, every iOS 7 device will be able to play their favorite GameBoy games without a jailbreak.

There’s some pretty cool features that are new, too. The latest version of GBA4iOS includes an iOS 7 reskin, more controller and theme options, Dropbox sync support, iOS 7 support, and sipport for full cheats.

When the app is released, iOS 7 users will be able to install the app just by opening the link in Safari and following the instructions at the top of the page. We’ll see how long Apple leaves this loophole open this time.
