We are in luck, the emulation of consoles on our mobile devices is something that interests many and is that with a device of € 800 we could already save a few hundred euros more by being able to play console games such as the Nintendo DS or the PSP on it, consoles that are now obsolete, which prevents manufacturers from making money for this.
However after the arrival of iOS 9 and its various internal changes, the world of emulators received a hard blow, and it is that not only was it more difficult to install applications outside the AppStore but it seems that Apple touched a thing called JIT and emulators like PPSSPP stopped working even having the jailbreak done.
However, this has changed stealthily, and it is that emulators like PPSSPP still do not work officially, sometimes it does not load the app and if this load is closed when opening a game. On the other hand, emulators such as NDS4iOS have managed to work again in iOS 9, although they have needed the help of websites such as iEmulators to be installed without jailbreak giving new instructions to users (installation with profiles).
Among all of them a new application has been born that comes to claim all the lands under his reign, I am talking about Happy chick, an application with an innocent name and an icon that is even more so (a funny chicken), however from the moment you open it you see the enormous potential it has and as without seeing it coming it has become the best and only option emulation on iOS.
Happy Chick can be installed on devices without jailbreak (Of course, making use of a developer profile), once this is done when we open it we will see what could be called a «Game Store», but instead of apps it presents us with a catalog of multi-language and multiplatform games, and that is that we have available for free download from the classic Pokémon of GameBoy, through the Nintendo DS games and even those of PSP and Playstation 1.
All games can be downloaded quickly and directly in the same application, and once downloaded they can be executed in-situ, even those from PSP, because this application makes use of parts of others (for example, for games PSP uses the PPSSPP system, although somehow they have managed to make it work without major problems in iOS 9 and without jailbreak).

How to install Happy Chick
Here is the process, and it is that it is something different from what we usually know, since Happy Chick is in beta phase and we will be required to have an access key, a key that will be provided to us instantly and free of charge by the developer using an automated user in WeChat.
We download WeChat and we register (a very fast and simple process, it is similar to WhatsApp).
We access this website and we follow the instructions in images to add the user "xiaojigame" to WeChat and request a code.
Once a response is received from you, we will access a website where we can download the emulator, the profile that allows us to use it without jailbreak and see our activation code:
Step 1 and 2 of this website must be followed in order to download it (step 1) and allow its use without jailbreak (step 2, which will involve accessing Settings, installing a profile and clicking on «Trust").
To copy the activation code, just hold down and copy it, keep in mind that each code is personal and non-transferable, it cannot be used by more than one device:
Now it only remains to open the installed application and paste the code that we have previously copied, this will give us access to the game catalog and we can start playing the one we want as soon as it is downloaded.
It is worth mentioning several things, to begin with saying that the application is in beta, which may lead to the occasional shutdown (which hasn't happened to me yet) or some other bug that needs to be resolved.
It is also important that when downloading the games you make sure that on the label below the weight in MB of the file put ESP or EUThis will imply that the game will be in Spanish or English at least, otherwise we may end up having a game in Japanese.
And finally say that the installation of unknown profiles runs under your responsibility, and it is that although I have not detected any type of anomalous operation of the system, it is true that installing a profile can pose a risk to the security and / or privacy of your device, and this can lead from the transmission of information on the device and its use on unauthorized servers until the installation of applications not belonging to the App Store without any problem, which can facilitate the entry of malware on our device.
These are only the worst cases, I insist, there should be no problem when using this profile, you can always revoke the trust and even delete it and all the applications that some of it makes, and if malware were installed, it would come out in the list of applications that include the profile under Settings / General / Profiles / ProfileX.
