If you are using slow connection like me and trying to download the apples iPhone SDK , then you already know how much tough it is , because of apple only allow to download this file after login. And non of the download manager can give you the resume facility. so after trying 2 days with different downloaders i tried wget and got sucess 😀
Here i am discribing how to do it. First login to http://developer.apple.com/iphone (if you donâ€™t have any account, just create one, itâ€™s free). then use firefox extension to export (firebug+firecookie) cookie to cookie.txt . Then rest of the task simple. just copy download link from http://developer.apple.com/iphone and give the following command in the console.
$ wget -ct 0 â€“load-cookies cookie.txt your_file_url
thatâ€™s all, now you can resume download without any problem. Here is the command i used to download to download it.
$ wget -ct 0 â€“server-response â€“load-cookies cookies.txt http://developer.apple.com/iphone/download.action?path=/iphone/iphone_sdk_3.0__final/iphone_sdk_3.0__leopard__9m2736__final.dmg
