Disclaimer: This is one of the oldest tricks, but the point is IT STILL WORKS!

Rapidshare has established itself to be the leading file-hosting service and quite obviously, a free service. Most of us have used Rapidshare at one time or the other and that too as a ‘free user‘. The annoying thing being a free user is the waiting time imposed by Rapidshare for downloading every file. Well, here is an old, cute, small Rapidshare Hack which i have been using for the last few years and surprisingly which still works.

So, how to get rid of time delay in Rapidshare?

Step One :
After you have decided which file you want to download from Rapidshare, select to download it as a free user.

Step Two :
Now in the address bar of your browser type or copy and paste the following javascript and press ‘enter’ :


The download counter should disappear and the link should be ready for download immediately. This works in most of the browsers on windows! If you know any better way, do share it in the comments section.

  1. Is this hack for the waiting time when you click download, or is this for the delay you get when you finish downloading a file?

  2. This was definitely tweaked in March or April 2009.

    I’m 99.99% sure this does NOT work anymore. But you guys may prove me wrong.
    At least in Firefox I always get [X] “Download cannot be established. Is Javascript activated?” after using this trick and clicking on the big DOWNLOAD button.
    Even other c values don’t work anymore.

    Technically, the “fix” from RS’ side is simple: RS now synchronously uses a SECOND variable and does a compare. If you do hack the time limit, the comparison will output a diff. If the diff is greater than 0, message [X] gets displayed.
    So if we find this second variable and set it to same value as c, we may be lucky.

  3. This day 27th of october 2009

    I’ve tested and this script still works

    you’re not supposed to put this behind the address bar, just clear the address bar and paste this in
