Tutorial : PSX4 Droid

So now that the PSX4Droid is out which, if you don’t know by now what it is, is an emulator for your Android phone to play Playstation 1 games on. While higher-end phones will see slightly better performance this should work on all Android phones. Now that you have it installed on your phone, you’re itching to play your favorite PS games right? A little confused as to how to get setup and playing? Well thanks to user ap3604 over at the XDA-Forums we have a little tutorial to get you up and running as fast as possible.

This has been kept in original form and all credit for this tutorial go to the writer, ap3604 from the XDA-Forums. Let’s begin shall we…


Hi guys I just saw that psx4droid is out in the market! Hooray! 

But I saw my friend had some problems getting it set up and wanted to make it easier for other newbies so I figured I would do a step by step tutorial of how my friend got it working for his Nexus One.

  • Step 1: Download psx4droid in the android market (search psx and it will come up)
  • Step 2: Connect your phone to your computer via usb and create a folder where you will place your Bios file and Roms (SDcard -> then create a new folder PSXoid)
  • Step 3: google the term scph1001.bin and download the file
  • Step 4: place the scph1001.bin file in the newly created folder PSXoid. DG Edit: To save you time and frustration in finding scph1001.bin you can download it from here instead of searching Google as half the links are dead.

Now comes the tricky part with the roms since most of them have a wierd ECM file type that wont be recognized by your emulator; dont worry you just need to convert the file type to bin so the emulator can recognize it 

  • Step 5: go to and download ECM under the Windows section of the page and extract the UNECM portion of the EMC download to the desktop
  • Step 6: grab the Rom in ECM format from the desktop and place it into the UNECM file now on the desktop, it will start making a copy of the Rom with the correct file type and will pull up a small black screen showing you that it is converting it to the correct format with a percentage ticking away to 100%
  • Step 7: now that you have the PSX Rom in the correct bin format, you can place it in the newly created PSXoid folder and your emulator will now be able to see it!
  • Step 8: unplug phone from USB and open psx4droid app
  • Step 9: Use the top portion of the settings to search for and select scph1001.bin as the bios file to use (It’s easy to find since you know its in the PSXoid folder)
  • Step 10: Once you have selected the bios file you will be promted to find a rom that you want to use. You will now be able to see the rom and play it on your psx4droid emulator! Enjoy =)

***Just a few tidbits in case people were wondering my friend is not rooted and this guide is for educational purposes only. Downloading illegal roms can get you in trouble and don’t do it unless you have the original game you purchase.

EDIT: On Droid Forums a user by the name of Titan posted this comment when he was confused by step 6 —— “Ah I got it working now, I get the .7z or .zip roms I downloaded, and I keep opening up the main folders/.zips until I get to a file called data.bin.ecm. Then I drag that to unecm. It seems that the “data.bin.ecm” is the game in all that mess. “

An update for this Playstation emulator, there is no news included with it but from the updates listed at the page we get this:

  • Lua: lazy analog joystick support { xleft, yleft, xright, yright } joypad.getanalog(which) joypad.setanalog(which, { xleft, yleft, xright, yright })
  • RAM Search: Fix counting of number of changes.
  • Ram Watch – Add Separator button
  • ESET Smart Security reports lua51.dll – probably a variant of Win32/PSW.OnLineGames trojan Is this a false positive? it’s also picked up in many other anti-virus too
  • Something like pcsx.close(), pcsx.exit() or pcsx.quit() to end pcsxrr correctly would be very helpfull for making encode with kkapture, rather than closing manually the pcsx windows. I tried play around a bit with visual studio express 2008, to add it myself… but I’m probably don’t do it right.
  • RAM Search: fix reset to update previous values RAM Search: redraw the list when search size/format is changed. Probably those are common bugs of the Gens-style RAM search dialog.
