The hacking isn't illegal I believe... as long as you retain copyrights and such.
But the ROMs are very much illegal. =/

Yeah. The ROMs are illegal. If you stick to Copyrights and such like Kaizer said, it's fine.

the hacking is illegal because it involves roms

As long as you do not distribute them for a profit and you own the game you are hacking it is fine.

Besides the fact it's an art to hack the games and change them. But still, it's legal in the manner they aren't distributed. Then they're just like giving ROMs away. That's why IPS patching came into the use for them.
