Hi all.

I recently bought a ZTE Racer and have been really impressed with the community here. It's great that there are so many custom ROMs to try out and the development is always moving in the right direction.

I'm not an Android developer and I don't know my way around a ROM. I plan to learn but time constraints are a big factor on my life at the moment (day job, freelance work in the evening and a six week old son take up a lot of time!). I did however want to give something back to the community here.

I notices that a lot of the ROMs available are hosted on MegaUpload and other such services. I also noticed that forum topics about ROMs quite often get sidetracked and it can be difficult following which ROM is being discussed in a given post.

To try and remedy some of this I have put up a site dedicated to hosting Racer Roms which can be found here http://raceroms.co.uk.
There are a few css tweaks I still want to work out and I've only managed to link through a few ROMs so far (like I say, time is short). I also want to add a few FAQ's such as how to flash/install ROMs etc.

When you upload a ROM you can give it a description so the information about a given ROM is always found with that ROM.
My intention is not to try and poach the community from here, more to provide a service like MegaUpload so that links to ROMs can be posted here as they are currently, but we get the added bonus that all Racer ROMs can be found in the same place
. Note: Upload from the site doesn't work. Contact me for an FTP account if you want to upload.

I'll continue to put ROMs on the site (and fix the few style issues) and if anyone else is interested in putting some ROMs up on the site please feel free.

I think people are more interested in 2.2 and 2.3 ROMs. It would be a good idea to have all the download links in one place, but only if it's updated regularly. Can you upload some more?

hi bhamnav
Thanks for the feedback.
I will be (eventually) uploading all the ROMs mentioned in this forum that I can still access. I had started at the top and got as far as the 'All ROM's to date' post.
I'll post back here when there's more available

I've got a bit more time on my hands now so I am doing a bit more work to raceroms.co.uk.
The first thing to note is that the user upload function didn't work properly. (The PHP limits wouldn't allow a file as big as a ROM). I have removed the login and upload buttons. Apologies to anyone who made an account and then couldn't upload.

I'm in the process of linking up the ROMs which have already been uploaded to the server so that they show on the site. So far I've only done the 4pda CM7 nightlies but they are all up there.

If anyone does want to use raceroms.co.uk to host their ROMs, give me a shout and I'll set you up an FTP account.

Plegdroid, Thank you for your kind words. I'm hoping that the site will be of use. I'm trying to keep the look of it quite simple and uncluttered so that it's easy to find the ROMs

Equiliym, No offense meant. I'm working my way through the ROMs but please do link me up as it makes them easier to find.

Anyone else. If there's a ROM or set of ROMs you would like on the site please link them below and I'll upload them and display them on the site.

Plegdroid, Thanks for those links. I'll work through those file when I'm on my home broadband connection as transferring file takes an age when using the USB tether on the Racer.

I've added a bit of coding so that the site now displays the MD5 hash of the file so you can check the download went OK. For anyone who doesn't know, the MD5 hash of a file should be the same whenever it is taken. If you download a file from raceroms you can calculate the MD5 hash yourself. If it matches the one displayed on the site you can be sure that the file you have is the same as the one hosted on the site.

Equiliym, you'll be pleased to learn that your ROMs are now up on the site and available for download.

I've been uploading various other ROMs when I get the opportunity but haven;t had a chance to work through the big, multi ROM threads yet. (but it will happen)

At the request of Racerboy, there is now a chart on the front page which shows the top 50 downloads. It's interesting to see which ROMs are being downloaded and how many times (the MTC Stock ROM was a surprise). Makes you question how many lurkers there are on this site :o

Hi Equiliym. Links to the actual ROMs are the most useful as that makes the download/upload process easier.
I am working slowly through the various ROM topics on the forum but I haven't got a huge amount of spare time to do it in.
If you want I could set you up an FTP account so you can upload directly to the site.

On another note I did have a bit of spare time this evening so put a logo and tagline on the site as well as a few more css style tweaks.
Still a bit to do but it's in better shape than it was.
