Hello, since the removal of devdb, were there any efforts made to archive devdb content before it was deleted? Its such a shame that alot of hidden gems became lost media such as zit flasher got erased.

Technically nothing was deleted, the DevDB files just were not migrated to the new servers.

They are to be available again according to this post.
Any updates to this may be posted in Post #1 or Post #2

Tip:
Search for a filename or a unique part of the file name.

After you find one file copy the link and paste it somewhere like a search bar.

you will get a link like this.
https://devdb.xda-developers.com/3/1/8/0/otterx-u-boot_v2.01.zip

Remove the file name and this is the link to the folder with all files from that project.
https://devdb.xda-developers.com/3/1/8/0/

Or you can navigate to folders 3/1/8/0 for example.

Server seems to be a bit unstable at the moment.
When using the search function after tapping 2 or 3 characters the website freezes (tested on Firefox Beta and Chrome stable,both mobile). See attached screenshots.

Nevertheless nice to have it and I'm sure that are just some starting difficulties.

Actually it is just not really meant for scale. The search is slow and likely involves a lot of Javascript so it's freezing the browser.

There are just a lot of files that are only important for a handful of people that I can tell, I wanted to keep them accessible. If anyone wants to mirror them, please let me know and I will rsync them to your server. It's about 2.7TB
