Hi, 'cheat.7z' won't work in Mame4droid. Its not compatible with 0.139u1.
There is already 'cheat.zip' in Mame4droid. If not that I suggest reinstall the app. again.
If you want latest cheats (206) you should replace ''.xml'' files.Transfer ''cheat.zip'' to Windows/Desktop open with winrar, drag and drop ''.xml'' files from cheat 206 and transfer back to Mame4droid.

Hi I'm on the iOS(iPhone) but Mame4droid and Mame4ios have same core 0.139
The ''cheat.zip" compress file, there are 8837 cheat xml files in it. I don't think you play all of them.
In my case I have only popular games such as Street Hoop(strhoop), Metal Slug(mslug) etc.
I just replace the cheat files that the games I play.
Make sure cheat file(xml) and rom(game) has same name. e.g: strhoop.xml strhoop.zip
Another thing, must be one ''cheat.zip'' compress file in the Mame4droid.
if you want to see file extensions ''.zip, .xml'' :http://kb.winzip.com/kb/entry/26/

This is the complete list of games supported by MAME 0.139 (mostly showing parent roms)
http://www.retro-burner.co.uk/text%20lists/list109.txt
But whatever in the cheat.zip that's the complete list.
That cninja1.xml is exactly the same since 2010. So no any update unfortunately.
You can check the cheats yourself, open xmls with ''Notepad'' see if there's any change in xmls. Before you do drag and drop.
This is exactly what I do:
I extract cheat0206.zip on the Desktop and then I extract cheat.7z in an empty folder.
I don't need to transfer the cheat.zip from my phone to Windows/Desktop. I use app. called iMazing(only for iOS) to access my phone.
Double click on the ''cheat.zip'' and drag and drop the xml. App. will overwrite the cheat.zip.
Make sure you have the correct rom set (139) and keep in mind, some clones don't work without parent rom. cninja.zip is the parent rom.
