    Is that true, can you only link Sapphire to Sapphire and Ruby to Ruby?

    Sounds kinda lame since the reason we got different ones was so we could eventually trade Pokemon that don't exist in each other's games.
    This is probably an error on part of the developer(s?) of MyBoy. Your best bet is to either hack the header on both ROMs to have the same game code (something like DERP or BPRE to keep is simple) using a tool until the issue is fixed. You might also want to report the bug to the developers of the actual app so that in the future editing the ROM header won't be required.

    I hope the DS emulator for Android is improved...
    It works too slow on low end devices.
    Usually when your emulating another processor, it takes about ten times the processing power, plus a little more depending on if it also has a dedicated graphics card built in among other things. The DS had two ARM processors, one at 67MHz, and one at 30MHz. Thus, it will most likely take a 1GHz processor or more to keep it running smooth enough so that it's playable.
