when so many good file hosting sites are there?
Because it provides great speed for us with the remote upload function! Also it provides good download speed, atleast for me and jerpelea!
Many others choose mediafire, which gives me a speed of about 10kb/s. So its just the difference which country/provider are you on. For everybody this is different and no matter which provider we choose someone will complain!

think about it,
Why should we make this? This would be atleast more work for us we better want to spend in developing. For me it takes about 12 hours to upload all roms. Why should i upload to different hosters ? Also i dont want to buy a faster internet upload speed just for providing different sites. So simply: NO! 1 is enough. If you want to use the weekly FXP-Rom you can download from our choosen filehoster, if you dont want to download from ul.to just use the CyanogenMod Network and use the less updated versions!

But anyway, thank you for the data patch, I can now enjoy CM9 on my phone.
Yes it is the only way to stop this! We kindly asked frequently NOT to mirror it.
The reasons are simple:
1.) We dont have the download count we want to provide Sony.
2.) We dont have any access to the mirrored files, so we cannot take them offline if a new version is out. We get frequently bugs reported that are from very old versions. This was the case in X10 developing, so we finally decided not to allow mirrors at ALL!
And because some guys here disrespecting the rules we dont have any other option to do that.
Also i personally hate it when someone provides a inofficial mirror because they only want to make money with the mirrors! We cannot respect this.
IF someone does make a mirror and is publishing it via PM for a friend or smth. We are still ok with it and ofc we cannot forbid it. But we DONT want mirrors published to the www except our own links!
