Amazing Trick Requirement

*Android Device
*Opera Mini (It was only tested on Opera Mini but you can try on Opera Mobile and see if it works)
*File Manager(any)






What does the trick do?




I was derping around with my mobile
and found an amazing download. When I clicked on Download, I realised, oh BEEP
I was in Opera Mini, one of the worst download manager. One time your download breaks, it can't be resumed. I crossed my fingers and then hoped it does not fail. But it failed at 47 mb out of 50 mb

Fuuuuuuuuuu......



But then, I was so down, I decided that Challenge Accepted

I fiddled around and SUCCESS, I found out a way you can resume ANY broken download, even if you reboot your phone

For finding this trick(I hereby take no responsibility of your amazing data getting wasted trying or using this trick or your precious download failing or your device not able to run Bad Piggies or Asphalt 7 or Temple Run being laggy or IMEI loosing or Graphical Glitches or Devices bricking, blah)


Instructions:-
Read very carefully


1. Download anything IN OPERA MINI and wait it to fail (Here, we assume you downloading iamareebjamal.zip)
2. Once it is failed, DON'T CLICK ON RETRY and go to any file manager and to path of that file and rename it to whatever you like (eg: iamareebjamal2.zip)
3. Go again to Opera Mini and click on RETRY now.
4. As soon as it shows 0.1 mb downloaded, PAUSE it.
5. Go again to File Manager and you may see two files, first one which you recently renamed and new download file of approx 0.1 mb(or of size it was when you PAUSED it) [Paused file will have original download name such as iamareebjamal.zip]
6. Rename new file to whatever you want and rename the previously failed download to its original name [iamareebjamal.zip(paused download) -> whatever.zip] [iamareebjamal2.zip -> iamareebjamal.zip]
7. Go back to Opera Mini and resume the download. Download will RESUME from WHERE IT WAS FAILED. (f yeah) [Make sure Opera Mini isn't killed in renaming process as you may have to redo the whole process if it does]
8. Enjoy




This colourful and easy to understand guide was made on mobile using the individual typing of BB CODES by hands of OP
Please understand how difficult it is to do it on mobile by trying it sometime

Well, it was present there! Didn't know!


And if you are saying I cheated it from there, nah, I got this idea from IDM and Download Everything Pro(recently), that used very similar method, so I tried it on Opera Mobile last year in December so it didn't work. So, I thought it won't work here, then, I tried it on Opera Mini just out of curiosity and it worked, so, I shared it.


It was not so much of a big deal finding it when you know that every second Download Manager does this.

Neither it was so unpredictable that to be cheated
