By default when you download No$gba includes a built-in clone copy of Nintendo BIOS that is used for running the games if the copyrighted Nintendo original BIOS ROM-images are not found in the no$gba emulator folder. For the majority of games, you do not need to worry about the gba / nds / dsi bios files, but yes – there are some specific game roms that may require you to get the bios.rom images.
No$GBA Emulator : Where can I find some BIOS images?
There are only few GBA and DS games that make use of BIOS images. Because of this, it is quite difficult to look for available BIOS images anywhere around the Web that is distributed legally. Even more, DS BiOS is copyrighted by Nintendo and its distribution by our site would be illegal. But still, you can always have a copy of this straight from the DS or look thoroughly for someone that can distribute it on the Web.
What we offer is for you to:
Even if you have NO cash you can play Nintendo DS and Gameboy Advance games. What you need is a PC, some NDS roms or GBA roms and No$gba emulator program. NoGBA will let your PC 'pretend' to be a game console and so you can play DS games with NO ca$h. www.no$gba.com. Emulator could be called NoNDS or No$DS, but as it was started as a Gameboy Advance roms emulator and only later acquired ability to play DS games it continues to be called No$GBA and not No$NDS or anything else like that.
How can I obtain DS firmware? Where can I find some DS BIOS files?
Firmwares are not required anymore since No$GBA has more sufficient emulation to be able to work alone. As for the BIOS files, the only legal way that you can attain such is to take it from your DS. It is copyrighted to Nintendo so it would be difficult to find some distributer.
Are firmware and BIOS files still necessary for No$GBA emulator?
Nowadays, these things (backup NDS bios files) are not really needed anymore. No$GBA already has sufficient emulation properties that it can already work on its own.

Download BIOS for NDS (Nintendo DS)!
Yes, this is not a joke, the BIOS of the Nintendo DS installer can actually be found and downloaded here. So, the BIOS of the Nintendo DS, needed to run the games is very small, however, there are two more, for what purposes they I do not know, download at your discretion:
Nintendo Ds System Bios For No$GBA.zip (30 Kb) - includes: BiosNds7.ROM, BiosNds9.ROM and GBABIOS.ROM.
Nintendo Ds System Bios Nds-Cos.zip (30 Kb) - includes: NDSBIOS7.ROM, NDSBIOS9.ROM and GBABIOS.ROM. does not differ from the previous one by anything other than the renamed files.
Nintendo DS Bios (JUE) .bin (9 kb). I do not know why, I spread it just in case.
Nintendo DS 2MB ROM BIOS.bin (2 Mb) - also without a clue, but it's great :)
Guys, get me right. Nobody wants his site to be shut down for illegality (the BIOS of Nintendo DS is protected by copyright law). Therefore, I post the link on which you download the BIOS. A convincing request - do not spread it on public display, tk. The site where all this is located is immediately closed. Refer to this page in a pinch.
