How to get unlimited referrals on App Trailers

Alright, for my newest trick to make money with App Trailers, you have to potential to make a LOT of money. However if you abuse this, the chances of your account getting banned are pretty high. I would only use this trick once or twice per day.

I have posted 2 articles before about how to make money with app trailers, my App Trailers guide/review and then I showed how to automate the viewing of trailers

Unfortunately for me, I abused the automation and got my secondary account banned so I had to find a way around the ban so I could still use the automation. In doing this, I figured out how (if you have at least 2 iDevices) you can give unlimited referrals to yourself. Each referral is worth $1, so that adds up fast!


The way I have this set up is I have both an iPhone and an iPod touch. My iPhone has my main app trailers account, which is linked to my Paypal, on it. My iPod is jailbroken (click here for instructions - iOS 5.0.1) and I use it to automate viewing and to get the referral bonus on my main account.

Once you have jailbroken your iPod/iWhatever you will have a new app installed called Cydia. This is pretty much an "underground" app store. You will be looking to get an app called UDID Faker.


Open Cydia and click the manage tab at the bottom, then select sources. Click on Edit, then Add. This will prompt you to enter the URL of your new source, enter http://sinfuliphonerepo.com and confirm. Cydia will display a warning but just click add anyways.

Next search "UDID Faker" and install the only app under that name. The install button will be on the top right after you select the app. 

Now let me explain what this does. Every iPod, iPhone, and iPad has a unique series of numbers and letters assigned to it, called the UDID. This is how apps are able to recognize when you have already used it before. By using UDID Faker, you will be able to trick App Trailers into thinking that you are a brand new user EVERY time you use it if you choose. Alternately, if your account gets banned because you were not careful enough using my exploits you can use this to get a new account set up!


Open up UDID Faker, and select App Trailers from the menu. Then just click the Random UDID button and exit the app by tapping the home button. When you open up App Trailers it will treat you as a brand new visitor! Go to enter bonus code and type in the code from your main account, or use mine if you're feeling nice - expectedroute

This is also a great way to get around getting banned by App Trailers. I hope to find other apps soon that will allow you to do this with referral systems.

EDIT: Unfortunately, I had typed this up a while ago and had not used this method for a bit. It would appear that this method is no longer working, but I would try it every once in a while just in case. I will try and find another way around it. Wish me luck!

    1. Unfortunately it looks like App Trailers has started using something besides your UDID to identify your phone. I am actively searching for a way around this problem, and will update when/if I find something.

    2. May I suggest something? Try going to m.appredeem.com on your iOS device using safari. Then add it to the home page (it will turn into its own app somehow that's what happened to me) and try the UDID trick on that. Reason being, this application is from the same company and it looks as if it is not updated. I would try it myself but my jailbroken iPod is at home and I'm on vacation. Report back with your findings and good luck

    3. Forgot to mention that appredeem and app trailers are connected so you don't have to sign up again.

    4. Brian,

      Unfortunately UDID Faker does not bring up an option for the "app" App Redeem puts on the ipod. I tried changing the UDID of the web browser just in case that worked, but no luck.

      Great idea though.

  3. Hi there, I also came across this method just yesterday and even had my unjailbroken iPhone jailbroken for this and was extremely disappointed to find out the glitch was fixed.
    If you can come up with anything at all similar to the udid method, please attach it to this article
    Thank you dearly:)

  4. What if you have an older version of app trailers? I have version 2.6 on my real account and version 1.6 on my jailbroken idevice. When you tried it how long did you have to wait till your main account received the 1000points/ $1?
