UPDATED: Get 50GB of free Box cloud storage without rooting

free50gb

Want to get 50GB of free storage in the cloud? Thanks to a deal between Box and LG, anyone with one of several LG phones, including the Xperia Play, said users have been able to. But what about the rest of us? We want some free cloud storage, darnit! Well, thanks to developer redphx, that dream can now become your reality.

Before, you had to have a rooted phone, and make some changes to your build.prop file to make your phone look like an LG device. However, there’s now an app in the marketplace that does the same, and it’s been confirmed to work by multiple sources. However, be warned, you do have to insert your Box account info into the app, and there’s no telling what happens past that. To quote the developer, “I promise NO email or password is stored or transferred”. Also, a simple password change after this should block off any possible unwanted access.

So, if you want to get 50GB of delicious free storage, act now by following the Market Link. Don’t forget, this deal ends Dec 31st.

Thanks for the tip Julio!

UPDATE: It seems Google has removed the app from the Market, but thanks to redphx, you can grab it here.
