I did not find anything wrong in your log file. Please wait for a moderator to assist.

Go to Emulation>Configuration>Graphics>Advanced Tab and disable Hardware Renderer. See if that allows you to see an image (note, this will be slow). If it does, then you likely have a GPU driver issue.
If it doesn’t, you likely have an issue with your dump.
In which case you’ll need to redump. Make sure your GM9 is up-to-date and that you have enough free storage space available on your SD-Card to perform the dump. Which for Omega Ruby should be around 2GB:
