How to Get 50GB DropBox Space on All Android Devices

get 50 gb dropbox space on all android devices Most of you must be aware of Samsung giving Free 50GB Dropbox space with Galaxy S3 and Galaxy Note 2 But What if you have some other device? Previously I've posted How to claim 50GB storage on purchase of Galaxy S3. A Good News for you is that now you can avail free 50GB Dropbox storage on all android devices and Today I'll show you How to get Free 50GB Storage on any android device. 

The Discovery

About 2 months ago, I bought Galaxy S3 and obviously I got the Dropbox storage as claimed by Samsung. After a few weeks my cousin bought a Galaxy S2 and he needed dropbox app (He was not having Internet connection), So I decided to send him my dropbox apk via bluetooth. Using RootBrowser I went to System/Apps and copied Dropbox apk and sent it to my cousin. 

After installing that apk, We both were surprised to see an email which he received. It stated 'Thanks for choosing Samsung Device, Click on Claim to get started with Free Dropbox space.' Below is the exact Email he got:

So It proved that when we use Galaxy S3 Dropbox apk on other android devices then we can avail the free dropbox storage because the app confuses the device with galaxy s3 and thus giving you free storage.


How to Get Free 50GB Dropbox Storage on Android Device 

Today I'll show you How to get Free 50GB storage on your android device. Please Note that you must be rooted in order to get free storage. 

Preparations

Removing Dropbox

This Step is only for those who have dropbox already installed, If you don't have dropbox then skip this step and move further. If you already have dropbox installed on your device then you'll have to uninstall it.

  • Go to Settings > Application Manager > Dropbox
  • Tap on Clear Data 
  • Once Data is cleared, Tap on Uninstall
After uninstalling dropbox, Go to your internal storage and delete dropbox folder if present. Next move to the Installation Part.

Installation

Now that you've Downloaded the above files. Extract S3Dropbox package and copy both app files (Dropbox.apk and DropboxOOBE.apk) and Framework file to your devices Internal storage (make a folder Dropbox and add the files to it). I assume that you've already installed Root Browser app.

Step 1: Open Root browser app, Go to Dropbox folder (which you've just created with S3Dropbox files)

Step 2: Copy both app files Dropbox.apk and DropboxOOBE.apk

Step 3: Using Root Browser, Go to System/Apps and paste both the files in this folder (Dropbox.apk and DropboxOOBE.apk)

  1. I know that this offer exists and i have used it when i bought my latest samsung device on my own account which worked fine obviously. however i just tried using your methods ( and quite a while ago with instructions on another website. however with no sucess, i was really looking into this offer to come back with the backdoor trick. however it didn't indicate anything up until now the only email which is received is that a new android device has been set up. no upgrade. can you confirm if it still works?

  2. Hi Carsten, As I said in the Tutorial that I've tested this trick on around 2-3 Different Android Devices and it worked every time. I think the reason it didn't worked for you is that you have not cleared all previous dropbox data from your android device. Clear everything (folder, data etc), Go to recovery and clear dalvik cache and then try this trick again.

  25. Still works!! but wont work if you use it for the 2nd time for a different account. only 1 phone for 1 account. I think the serial number (IMEI) of every cellphone is used and saved in the database of dropbox.
