How to bypass Rapidshare Waiting Time and Download Limit

How to it works? simple

1. When you’re on dial-up or dsl/cable, just restart your goddamn connection and thats it!
This is what i do with my dsl connection and it works perfectly.

2. When you’re on a network and restarting your connection would result in angry network connected users cursing at you about what happened to the internet, you can always request a new IP address from your ISP server.

Here’s how to do it in windows:

* Click Start
* Click run
* In the run box type cmd.exe and click OK
* When the command prompt opens type the following. ENTER after each new line.

 ipconfig /flushdns
 ipconfig /release
 ipconfig /renew

3. Use a proxy server:

 * First, Google for free proxies.

  In Internet Explorer, go to Tools; Internet Options; Connections; LAN Settings. Select (check) the option of Use a proxy server for your LAN. Then key in the proxy server IP address and port in respective box. Click OK to continue.

  In Mozilla Firefox, go to Tools; Options; Connection Settings. Then select (click) Manual proxy configuration and key in proxy server information. Click OK to continue.

 * When you hit your download limit, clean your cookies and change your proxy


THIS METHOD DOES NOT stop the 45 second download ticker and DOES NOT allow simultaneous multiple downloads. It only removes the few hours waiting time when downloading multiple files.

Bonus tip:

If you want to bypass the 45 second waiting time to download your file, copy the text below and paste it in your adress bar and press ENTER





javascript:var c=0;


This does not always work and has never worked for me, but some of my friends say it works perfectly fine.

Just try it out and leave a comment. =)

    the bypass the 45 second waiting time seems to work by eliminating the timer but when you click the download it will say file not found but you can still download the same file when you refresh the page and just let the 45 second timer finish.

  3. anonymous says:


    The download cannot be provided. Please check, if your browser supports Javascript.

    javascript:var c=0;

    The first javascript didn’t work for me but the last two both got rid of the timer.

    Then it tells you your javascript is off so you just enter

    ‘javascript:var c=1;’



    Then you refresh the page and it should give the download popup.

    I haven’t tried the ‘alert’ script, but it worked with the ‘var'( Only tried once)

  5. Jun says:

    I have tested the ‘alert’ script with the ‘1’ instead of ‘0’ and it has worked for me.

    Also retested the ‘var’ script with the ‘1’ instead of ‘0’ and it worked for me.

    Correct me if I’m wrong, but I’m thinking the ‘0’ turns off javascripting and ‘1’ enables it. (Just like off and on commands that computers use)

    You found your Rapidshare files and then what?

    Try this Rapidshare manager:

    How big it is? only 14Kb !!!

    It knows: auto download, auto rename files, auto change IP, auto retry download, skip already downloaded files, etc.

    Yes, that 0.014 Mb program solves the Rapidshare problem.

    100% Assembly Language program.

    Screenshot on the website show how it downloads from Rapidshare.
