Update 5/28 noon 30 I am uploading right now, however I never thought that I should create an uploading directory until today. That way if I am uploading files like I am now, someone doesnt start downloading and they get a bad file. So with the exception of what I am doing now, from now on anything I upload will go into a temp dir then I will transfer to its proper place.
I am going to work on an FTP for anon uploading, give me some time, I am concerned about Malware, trojens, and other malicious acts by people on the web, I want this to be a safe place for all Android users to access files for their devices.
I am also considering adding 3-5 more devices to the mirror, but I would need to get the Anon FTP up first, my upload speeds suck so damn bad.
Also, I might just add that Wiki that droid512 suggested, and let whomever has more time and knowledge admin it. 2 kids, broken back, severely damaged arms/hands and being on pain meds ALL the time screws up my ability to jump on the puter and help out.
Update 5/25 11pm
Open directory browsing is enabled for www.blackmugmedia.com/Android/ I figured it would be alot easier to be able to go through the different directories and locate any file you may need.
I am still uploading, my home connection sucks, 768 up.
Right now I am setting up my server hosted on fatcow with a mirror of all gtab roms, kernals, stock recovery, etc. Organized in directories for GSM, cdma, and wifi.
I would like to enable anonymous uploading, however....I am a security freak, so for right now ill upload everything I have for my cdma Verizon tab, then start downloading GSM and wifi files to place on the server.
If you are a Dev and want your project mirrored, send me a pm with a link and ill grab it and upload it.
I will update this post with links to the directories a little later today when I have enough stuff uploaded.
Effective today....these files will stay for the next 3 years.
If I can find a way to allow anonymous uploading and still have high security, I will update this post.
Why dont you install a hosting/upload script and then create user accounts for devs who wish to use the service.
Ok look buddy, all that **** went over my head like a 747. ha ha, yeah. Web stuff, I dont get it.
However...I was going to give Devs FTP accounts like I did for Spacemoose, but I posted it in the "General" section and I dont think it was seen by any devs.
So, tell you what, if you care to, give me a call, help me get what you suggested a go, and mabe make it a little easier? I dunno. All I know is I dont have money I can spare to donate, but I do have 3 years of hosting paid up and my domains attached to the server, so......I figured it would help alot.
Im hosted through Fatcow. Ive had this hosting plan for the past few years, never really used it.
Its Linux, Cpanel, all set up. Really just need to familiarize myself with it again, as I haven't looked at it in 2 years.
Ive done 1 FTP account so far, takes like 2 minutes to do, spent time creating directories for the hosting of roms/kernals/recovery/apps, etc. Just slowly chipping away at uploading what I have, then I will start downloading files from this forum if they still exist, then put them up on the mirror.
Open directory is active now, figured it was the easiest option for people to scroll through.
So, I guess I started something that will probably end up being very big, as once the Tab is all uploaded, then I start on the Droid X, then I'll pick a device to start with. Hell, as far as I am concerned, Ill host a mirror and repository for all Android Devices.
I have unlimited bandwidth and space, I informed Fatcow of my intention, they thought it was cool, said I was ok and I started.
this is awesome man I appreciate it. i vote sticky but i also vote a vzw wiki since theres totally not enough stuff for cdma tabs
I was searching through some of the scripts fatcow offers me, well besides the chat room thing I installed just to make my wife laugh, but a wiki add on, so yeah, its possible if someone wants to admin it I can put it up.
If anyone feels the directory structure should be different than what I came up with, please feel free to jump in and say so. I'm not going to get all butt sore because the world of android users think that my gift could benifit from a better layout.
Also, I think I will indeed instal that wiki page, if a few of you more experienced uber nerds want to admin the wiki, shoot me an email or pm and ill get you set up. I would do it, but my entries would probably be lame, and wrong.
