For DropBox:
Make a folder called "SharedLinks" in https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public
Upload a file https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public/SharedLinks
Right click the file and hit "Copy public URL" then copy the url

Here's the magic(not really)
[URL]URL_You_Copied_Goes_Here?dl=2[/URL]
?dl=2 is the key

Here is a Test link http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43803172/Jellybean/sqlite3
[qrcode]"http://dl.dropbox.com/u/43803172/Jellybean/sqlite3"[/qrcode]



For SkyDrive:
IE 9+/Chrome/Firefox

Open the file up in SkyDrive then hit "Share", hit "Get a link" (on the left), in "View only" section click "Create" button and hit done.
Now right click the file and hit download. In download list (ctrl+j), right click your file and hit "Copy download link"

Then use this code:
[URL]URL_You_Copied_Goes_Here[/URL]
Here is a Test link http://oa9q6q.bay.livefilestore.com/...ownload&psid=1


Don't forget to hit thanks if you learned something

What is this thread ?

2 exact same thread?
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2044139

Being a member for more than 3 years & an "RD" why are you creating 2 threads for same exact purpose in same section?

I really can't understand the purpose..

If I'm wrong.. then sorry... but seems almost similar threads...

Well just my 2 cents..

Steps are a bit different for SkyDrive, when sharing a file link instead of an image.

I wish more people would do this instead of hosting on some hosting websites. After I try to download a couple roms the random website will slow my download speeds to 50 kb/s. If you ever try to download a 300MB rom on that dl speed. It is miserable. haha. But thanks for this.
