The Hacks Guide Wiki is still being made and the kinds of content that fits on the site is still being decided. However, certain kinds of guides or resources are prohibited.


Tools and websites used to access and download copyrighted content are not allowed on the Hacks Guide Wiki. Do not post guides on how to download paid games for free. Do not link to pre-patched ROMs. Do not link to or post guides on how to use private SDK tools by Nintendo or any other developer.

Cheating in online games

Do not post information on how to cheat in online gameplay.

Bypassing network restrictions

Do not post information on how to bypass network restrictions (also known as unbanning) put in place by Nintendo or other publishers.

Tutorials for outdated or dangerous setups

Tutorials and guides on how to set up an outdated setup are not allowed. This includes but is not limited to setting up menuhax, arm9loaderhax, rxTools, CakesFW, and other similar long-superseded setups. Tutorials on how to downgrade the system version without a reason (such as on 3DS) also counts as a possibly dangerous setup with no benefit. Whether or not a guide is "outdated" is usually determined on a case-by-case basis, but we understand it to be (in the case of 3DS) anything that does not work on a boot9strap setup.

This does not include guides on how to move away from these setups to a more modern one, which may or may not require using old tools to do so. This also does not include informational articles that are not about how to set up or use them.

Non-Nintendo guides

The Hacks Guide Wiki currently focuses on Nintendo consoles. This wiki is administrated primarily by the Nintendo Homebrew server on Discord, whose expertise is largely the Nintendo 3DS, Wii U, Nintendo Switch, and Wii. Guides for PC games, Xbox, PlayStation, mobile games, and others wouldn't fit here, since we would not be able to provide the same level of support.

Consider instead

What about PlayStation Vita?

The domain also hosts a Vita hacking guide at, but it is managed mostly by people outside of the Nintendo Homebrew server on Discord. Since our experience is Nintendo consoles, this is a Nintendo-focused wiki.

Game strategy guides

This is a guide about hacking and homebrew. You should instead consider posting your guides to StrategyWiki or Wikibooks.

The status on strategy guides and tutorials for playing game mods/ROM hacks is undecided.
