    Hello android community,

    I've been left without a computer after my laptop was stolen from my car but luckily I had uploaded my important work documents, presentations, music and home movies onto my premium rapidshare account by compressing them into large .rar files. Now I'm trying to retrieve some of those files with the only Internet device I have and that's my sprint hero.

    Been trying since last night to download a couple of them through numerous browsers onto the sd card but either the download never starts or it it gets part way there and fails. Anyone have any solutions for this or maybe a download app like Downloader for iPhone?

    Been searching google and these forums for help but no luck.

    Sprint hero
    Firmware Version 2.1-update 1
    Baseband Version
    Kernel Version 2.6.29
    Build Number 2.27.651.5

    Thanks in advance,

    1. Download the Forums for Android™ app!

    Download an app called download crutch. It will alllow you to download any file from the browser.

    EDIT: found it. It's no longer on the market but found the .Apk online and installed it. However it did nothing to help unfortunately still quits about 50 MBs in :( Thnx though

    Looks like your losing data connectivity at some point. Can you reach a wifi hotspot?
