Um, with the simulator, you have to put the ROM into the simulator file system. I just updated the source code so that you can see the required path in the Xcode console. The message will look something like this:

Initializing the emulator
ROM file required here:
 /Users/matt/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/4.2/Applications/4183522E-A7A9-4666-9870-9BC5045AA6D8/Documents/717006.rom
or here:
 /Users/matt/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/4.2/Applications/4183522E-A7A9-4666-9870-9BC5045AA6D8/Documents/717006.aif
 /Users/matt/Library/Application Support/iPhone Simulator/4.2/Applications/4183522E-A7A9-4666-9870-9BC5045AA6D8/Documents/717006.rex

I had to change all this because the ORM need to be separate in the official iOS version.
