Thread Details

The thread over at xda-developers has been deleted by the admins, I will re-post it here, great deal.

The deal is supposed to be for those buying the Galaxy S3, but it can work on any android phone.

Wipe data from dropbox using Titanium backup, after wipe, uninstall.

Download the GS3 dropbox recovery zip installation file here:
http://www.mediafire.com/?sbcbo8kmldmanwd

Install the .zip file through custom recovery, used by those with custom roms.

Login to drop box, voila, 48GB is available immediately.

The original thread was below and also offered a way to install via ADB, but I don't have those instructions.

Thank you crackspider for noting a Root Explorer method which does not require a custom CWM.

Some people have noted you need to logon to the web portal after installation to claim the 48GB. Everyone is getting it if you follow the steps right, some it is taking 5-10 minutes however.

Awesome post OP! Worked without a hitch on my cm9 touchpad! You, Sir, are awesome!

For all you guys whining about how hard this is, It's just copying one file over to your phone and installing via CWM. If you don't have a rooted phone already, well...

After all that work in dropquest for a measly 2 gigs, I just got 48 gigs in about 20 seconds shake head

CWM on my Optimus V didn't work for me either. Perhaps it's something phone specific. I know CWM works great on my ICS Touchpad.

What error are you getting?

Not sure, you can try the root explorer option too? I know there are some free alternatives to root explorer also, but it has been such a great app for me, I just bought it.

On the touchpad, I just copied the file to the "SD Card" and then booted into CWM and installed. What specifically isnt working for you?

I thought the last time there was free 25GB space due to an exploit, Dropbox found out and removed the space.

It might be an ICS app only? I'm no expert, but maybe the app doesn't support gingerbread? It is made for the galaxy S3 which is ICS...
