    I know I've been a cuck to the scene, and I'm sorry, I didn't want to see TitleDB die, so I made a clone, all new homebrew has to be manually added, to prevent abuse, I gave proper credits (a link can be found on the bottom of the page)

    There's nothing to save... There's still the old way: just move CIA files directly to your SD card, then install them with FBI...

    How about saving the effort of taking out your sd putting it in your pc moving the files to the sd putting the sd in the 3ds going to fbi and installing it.

    I know a guy named @Jayenkai who makes a bunch of 3ds homebrew games you should ask him if you can put his games on your site.

    @Multimegamander Hey, I have some constructive criticism about the looks of your site. I've designed UIs before and I can see a couple of problems with yours.
    I see you're trying to create a Material Design page, but it just looks... off. I'd suggest you read (or at least look through) the Material Design Guidelines. They'd help a lot with the arrangement of things and such.
    I can also see you're using different shades of blue to construct the site's colour palette, but you're using too many colours and the contrast in places is pretty bad. You can create colour palettes easily with the Material Colour Tool.
    One last thought, the plain text at the bottom of the page looks weird. I think you should incorporate that text and the credits into a dialogue box (not a browser dialogue, of course, but an actual overlay) triggered by an "(i)" button on the right-hand side of the top bar.

    This is the final site, both titledb.haxx.guide and haxx.guide lead to the same site, I'll add more homebrew, ads, and a donation button, hopefully this gets added to FBI :P

    Important Security Note : If you add X Homebrew Game, and link to X Homebrew Game's Server download, then the developer switches out X Homebrew Game for X Pirated Rom, you're still going to be linking to it from your database.
    Unless you have complete control, you do not have complete control.

    If you're going to do this at all, one important piece of the puzzle is to contact FBI and all similar apps, to ask if they'd redirect their internal database handling to make use of your new database. Also, you're going to need a REALLY good server to keep this all up and running, and that will more than likely prove costly, especially if 1,000 homebrew apps and all of their thousands of users, suddenly switch to using your server's database.
    Be very very careful, because that initial spike could seriously cost you quite a fair amount, if your server isn't on a bandwidth cap. (and will vice-versa lead to complaints if the site fails due to said bandwidth cap)

    Also, Nintendo will probably come a-knockin', so always be wary of that.


    But otherwise, best of luck to you. Just be really careful, and absolutely sure that you're wanting to do this.
    All my games can be found here, with the 3DS icons obviously leading to the zips.

    Since I made this post, I've gotten almost 5K people that went to the site in the past 24 hours, with nearly nothing, and no dev is going to switch redirect a GH link to a rom....

    The project is discontinued for three reasons; TinyDB exists, I can't use Flagbrew apps (PKSM, Checkpoint, etc.), Steviece10 rejected my TDB-2.0 from FBI, and TinyDB is being implemented

    The site still functions, but the GitHub is read only, unless I reopen it


    Fuck it, it's back open, making a lot of changes
