How to get Free £20/€25 Voucher on all Xperia Phones via Xperia Privilege App ?

[quote_center]Install Xperia Privilege App Apk on any Phone like Samsung, HTC by making below changes. Only Rooted Phones.[/quote_center]

Supposing now you have successfully installed Xperia Privilege Apk on your phone, as the Xperia Privilege app is supported by every Xperia smartphone but the promotional offer is only limited to Xperia Z only. So in order to get the Free £20/€25 Voucher on your Xperia handset, we need to do some editing in the build.prop file.

  1. Device must be rooted, if it is then proceed further. With the help of your file manager, navigate to /system/ and open the build.prop file.
  2. Now we are going to edit the build.prop file. Navigate to ro.product.model=<value> and ro.product.board=<value> and in place of <value>, we will add the value of Xperia Z which is to be put like Product Model = Xperia Z = C6603/C6602/SO-02E and Product Board = MSM8960.
  3. Now your build.prop file must be showing  ro.product.model=C6603 and ro.product.board=MSM8960.
  4. Reboot your phone and you are done.
  5. Open the Xperia Privilege app again and now you should see all promotional offers listed and your Free £20/€25 Voucher.

Say cheers on using the Free £20/€25 Voucher, now you are done with this, if you still are not able to see any promotions after doing above step then please wait, the Xperia Privilege App Version 2.0 will be unlocked with all promotional offers soon for all countries.

If you have been able to run this app do let us know does the free voucher offer worked on your phone also or not ? All comments are appreciated.

    After changing to country UK on my XS, it is still showing Black screen error, What to do now ?

    • Anurag Kumar May 6, 2013 at 11:46 pm - Reply

      Try changing to “France” as a nation and if you still are not able to access the app, then it’s your bad luck do try when it is available all around the globe.

    I have a Xperia Tipo and I followed the instructions but I can’t find the folder “system” neither the file “build.prop” ; what should I do ?

    Sorry for my bad English I’m French and the translate by google trad is……pretty bad ! 😀

    • Anurag Kumar May 6, 2013 at 11:40 pm - Reply

      Is your Xperia Tipo rooted ? Only rooted phones have access to build.prop file ?

      • Mertcan June 3, 2013 at 1:38 pm - Reply

        Not working with this v2.1, it was all fine with 2.0…but m not able to use it on new version….anybody had luck using it till now ?

    Worked on Xperia S from germany 😀 Be careful editing your build.prop. If you do it wrong your phone won’t boot (like it happened to me) Use a tool like ROM Toolbox or build.prop editor!

    • Anurag Kumar May 7, 2013 at 5:08 pm - Reply

      The same way we got it worked on our xperia sl. Editing build.prop is a tricky part, i agree 😉

    do you know how i can get that app to work on windows 7 ?

    • Anurag Kumar May 7, 2013 at 8:47 pm - Reply

      Hello, Yes you can try by installing “BlueStacks” software on your PC, install it; then download Xperia Privilege app apk on your PC install in on BlueStacks. You need to change your device on Bluestck from pre loaded device to some Xperia device, then app will run 🙂

        Hi, how do you change your device on BlueStacks?

      • Tarklion May 7, 2013 at 9:29 pm - Reply

        thanks for the fast reply i already have a rooted bluestacks how do i set the xperia device or how do i access the build.prop

        • Anurag Kumar May 8, 2013 at 11:58 am - Reply

          I am finding out the way to change the device in blustacks by making changes to installed folder in windows , can you please share your rooted bluestacks app file here…

    Anyone tested what happens if I make factory settings of my mobile and then re-install the app? Can I use it then twice?

    • Anurag Kumar May 8, 2013 at 9:48 am - Reply

      Well it should work as far as I think, as when we reinstall the whole phone software the apps are installed fresh so it should be the case here also.
      But I guess is this app that much worth that you want to factory reset your device :O

    It says, the app has been updated to 2.1!
    Is there any way to download the update?
    Thx for the guide btw!

    • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 12:57 pm - Reply

      Yes thanks for letting us know about update 🙂

      Check the post again, we have updated the version 2.1 links for downloading manually with change logs.

    The new version is showing this message 🙁

    “using device is unavailable for this campaign”

    I’m using a Xperia mini pro… I did everything as your guide say.

    Help! ;(

    • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 1:19 pm - Reply

      Yes the error is usual as the “offer campaign is only available for Xperia Z users and in some defined countries only.

      Did you change the build.prop file of your xperia mini pro, it needed to be done for availing the offer ?

      • Charles May 18, 2013 at 1:39 pm - Reply

        Yep, I edited it manually with root explorer, then i check it and it is as it should, the old version of the of the app worked fine but it was too late for me they didn’t send me any code, this version however seems different, maybe i need to edit another parameter in the buildprop because it wasn’t my ip im sure i have a uk ip. cheers!

        • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 1:43 pm - Reply

          yes this version seems quite different.
          Yes check with a UK IP, it should work, just let us know if it worked for you and share a screenshot of your redeemed voucher, Thanks 🙂

      Not working version 2.1 for me also on my xperia p….trying to have some other build.prop settings.

    Didnt work with BlueStacks!

    “using device is unavailable for this campaign”

    Any Solutions?

    think Sony will check anything else

    • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 1:45 pm - Reply

      Yes the error will show up because we need to have rooted Bluestacks for this. Some said in comments that it worked on the rooted bluestock as we need to edit the build.prop file to change the device bluestacks to use it.

      • Hulk May 18, 2013 at 1:51 pm - Reply

        Version 2.0 worked fine last week but 2.1 didnt work.

        My Bluestacks is rooted. 🙂

        • Charles May 18, 2013 at 1:55 pm - Reply

          try changing as much as you can in your build.prop from these values:

          • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 1:59 pm -

            As making more changes in build.prop file, Thanks for sharing link 🙂 Let us know if it worked for you for which settings.

          • Jack XS User May 18, 2013 at 2:11 pm -

            Thanks for link, editing my build.prop file now with more settings 🙂

        • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 1:58 pm - Reply

          May be Sony have done some changes in the internal files of app. Just now above 2 users reported that version 2.1 didn’t work for them as 2.0 was working for them even in phone they faced this issue.

          Can you please share the rooted bluestack file or how did you change the pre-installed phone to the Xperia phone to redeem the voucher ? It would be great if you let us know…

        Discussion on hotukdeals:

        I’m guessing its either IMEI or MAC address.. but thats only a guess 😛

        It’s MAC address just went through the code side by side.

        Is there a trick to Change MAC?

    I installed version 2.1 and it’s still telling me I need to update it.

    Anyone know a way around this?

    • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 5:03 pm - Reply

      No it didn’t happen with us, try rebooting your phone once, and if it don’t go yet…then un-install the previous version and then install new version.

        Same here… 🙁
        I also tried uninstalling, delete cache and reinstalling. Didn’t work, still wants me to update the app

        • Anurag Kumar May 18, 2013 at 5:21 pm - Reply

          May be that’s some bug in the app, we may see another update of App again by Sony :/

      • Me May 18, 2013 at 6:12 pm - Reply

        Tried that, along with clearing cache for the app. Still no luck 🙁

        So frustrating

          Yes not happening at all :/ Tired of doing that, m leaving it, neither happening in phone nor in bluesatcks. 🙁

        Hey, here is the Xperia Privilege APK 3.0.3 Enjoy !!

  12. Gikes May 23, 2013 at 2:41 am - Reply

    Everyone I bring news! After running a packet sniffer on my xperia z and going through the free £22 offer I can reveal that the entire app runs off this website

    But to go through the entire process your browser needs the useragent of the the xperia privilege app and I think it is

    Mozilla/5.0 (Linux; U; Android 4.1.2; en-gb; C6603 Build/10.1.A.434)

    I also know know sony remembers what you have claimed partly by a cookie.

    Apologies for such a long comment.

    • Me May 23, 2013 at 2:46 pm - Reply

      Didn’t work for me 🙁

      After entering my email address it tells me i need to update the app and links me to the play store.

      • Gikes May 23, 2013 at 9:55 pm - Reply

        I think it is something to do with the user agent that tells the webpage what app version the phone is running. Ill try and change the web address in my app to my own website and capture the user agent.

          Gikes try packet sniffer in xperia privilege 2.1 not in 2.0 i think is not a same website

          • Gikes May 25, 2013 at 8:59 am -

            I just ran packet sniffer again capturing all the redeem process if you want to read it here is the paste or if you want the .pcap file for wireshark . I think I am close to finding the useragent, Hope I dont get a C&D from Sony :p .

    Hi there!

    I have an Xperia Z, but i live in Hungary, so the app is not available for me. So I downloaded and installed the 2.1 app and changed the country to UK. This way I see two offers but the SEN voucher is not there for me. Any suggestions what should I do?

    PayaV87 => Lucky you :'( I haven’t got an xPeria … If you want to use the SEN voucher, you must create a new account UK 😉

    • PayaV87 May 30, 2013 at 10:34 pm - Reply

      A new gmail account, or what? I don’t really get it.

      Should I reformat the phone, and use a UK Gmail account?

      Thank you for your help, I appriaciate it.

    • PayaV87 May 30, 2013 at 10:54 pm - Reply

      I write again, just to make it clear 🙂

      This is what I see in the Privilege app:

      I have a Gmail account (I don’t know it’s a hungarian one or not, but I suspect it is.)

      I already have a UK SEN account on my PS3, and I’m planning to use the voucher there… 🙂 The hungarian PSN store is just plain bad.

      So what should I do to get that voucher? How do I make a UK Gmail account or does that help at all?
