This site can not and will not provide links for illegal content. End of Story. We may talk about it, but we do NOT provide links to illegally obtained copy protected content. Look for the forum rules, or use the link EthanAddict provided.

You can...... but i dont think it will help, because you broke the rules
but a hacking discussing forum should be more *tolerant* with people that new to where to download *ROMs*
i log in this forum in china these days and i found it was a good place to talk about games

Don't ask period! If that's the only reason you come to this site, you clearly didn't read the rules you agreed to when you created your accounts. Go somewhere else for the warez.

It is also against the rules, GBAtemp is not a warez site:

"Members may NOT ASK and MAY NOT PROVIDE INFORMATION or LINKS for and to places that provide ROM, WAD, ISO and CIA files in absolutely any way on our forum including PM (private message), Please go elsewhere if you only wish to download or share illegal files. The GBAtemp Forums are for discussion ONLY."

You broke the rules, get over it. I purposely broke the rules once by linking a wii u pirating website just for fun and got banned and accepted the 7 day ban. Don't like the rules on linking/sharing pirated content? Then leave. Otherwise, shut up, follow the rules, stop begging to have the ban shortened, and don't ask stupid questions like this again.

I was looking through the rules, and probably missed this, but if it's not in there, should there be an addendum to address the fact that users provide links to software that allow for backing up of the content?
