For CWM ROMS> I recommend using QR Codes to link your downloads. This way users can download the updated version of the ROM directly to their phone, reboot and install it. This eliminates the need to download, remove SD card, and copy ROM to SD card with card reader. An EXCELLENT QR Code Generator can be found HERE.

If you would like an extra post added to your release threads to accommodate the QR Codes, I would be more than happy to add one for you. Just shoot me a PM.

An example of a QR Code download link:

Quote:

-= CMYLXGO's Stock Desire HD(2) NAND ROM =-

v1.0.7 - Desire HD CWM


Click or Scan QR Code to initiate download.

Using the free Barcode Scanner app from the market, scanning this QR Code will take you to the Hotfile download page for CMYLXGO's Stock Desire HD(2) V1.0.7 download right on your phone allowing you to download it from the web without browsing to this thread and clicking the links manually.

This looks like a good idea, but PLEASE keep a download link for those of us browsing with our phones; nothing ticks me off more on my phone than a QR code teasing me big, beautiful, and unscannable, right there on my screen haha

Or, better yet, make the QR code a link to the download. It always amazes me when people don't do this as it's such an obvious thing.


Click QR Code to start download.

That IS even better.

Hope some devs start using this idea. "Click or scan QR Code to start download"

You might as well add this in the 1st post, as it is indeed an excellent ID. It's always a heck of job trying to scan a QR code using Tapatalk Pro of XDA app

Sincerely,
