Many Mirrors Don't Match Checksum

#1 Post by DaAwesomeP » Thu Sep 10, 2015 6:25 pm

Using the provided SHA256 checksum and the "auto pick" mirror, I failed to successfully download and verify UBCD. I tried at least four times. It picked four different mirrors every time. The downloads completed fine, but they did not match the checksum. Either the files have been tampered with on these mirrors or the checksum is not congruent to the files.

If the the checksum is correct and the files have been tampered with, then I would suggest hosting the built releases on SourceForge, GitHub, or even Dropbox or Google Drive. From my point of view, the "mirror" sites look pretty sketchy anyways.

Thanks (I really want to use UBCD),

Just download UBCD 5.3.5 from any popular software repository, and then check the hash.

Alternatively, read the section "Checksum/Hashsum Doesn't Match?" (reading the whole page can be helpful too) at:
