User Review Information
The ultimate GBA/DS hardware documentReviewed By: KaioShin on 13 May 2008
GBATEK is absolutely invaluable for every GBA and DS hacker. It covers every tiny detail about the hardware there is to know. In the case of the DS, the content is still a WIP at the time of this writing (May 2008), but the parts which are important to a ROM hacker are already done. The missing parts mostly concern details about the 3D hardware and network I/O ports. Unless you’re planning on writing homebrew apps, you won’t need those anyway.
Furthermore, unlike official hardware docs, GBATEK is very well structured, so it’s easy to find the information you’re looking for. Intermediate and advanced GBA/DS hacking is impossible without this document.
