We have already discussed this...the app lets you use it on one device at a time. If you want to use it on 2 devices, use a different number such as Google voice.

Default Whatsapp on Nexus 7

Hi JerreVD and everyone else. I have read the whole thread and have spent 3 hours trying to get this to work. I bought the nexus 7 for my brother as I am moving to Australia and want to send photos, messages, videos etc back home to my bro and parents. I cannot for the life of me get this to work.

The problem I have is that bluestacks automatically seems to install the newest version of whatsapp which gives you a 6 digit code. The older version on the nexus wants a 3 digit code.

Can someone please please help me here before my head explodes and I throw the laptop and nexus into the fire lol.

How can I link the old version of whatsapp (3 digit code) to bluestacks?


Many many thanks guys!!

As of today (12/13/2012), WhatsApp v2.8.4776 setup is no longer working for me on both BlueStacks (PC) and Nexus7 (after AppGuard). I setup on my nexus yesterday (12/12/2012) just fine but today when I tried to setup on my wife's Nexus7, both BlueStacks and Nexus7 told me the WhatsApp v2.8.4776 is too old and ask me to download from PlayStore.

So I download the latest version of WhatsApp v2.8.9108.apk, installed on BlueStacks and AppGuard-ed it. It failed after AppGuard (ok to open Whatsapp but when try to verify, it said "It looks like your client has been modified. Please download the latest version from Google Play". I stuck here.

Please let me know if you guys have any idea on how to resolve this. thank you!

The version that I updated to in my last post started to give upgrade messages again so I fiddled about with it again and have since had it working perfectly. I hope what I've learnt might be useful to you.

Personally I think the key thing here is you downloaded the latest version from Google Play. I noticed when I was messing about with my nexus that the latest version it states on Whatsapp's website and Google Play are different. (As of today Website = 2.8.9448, Google Play = 2.8.9108). I also noticed the website version updates very frequently, almost daily I'd say.

At first I tried installing the same version you got from Google Play and if memory serves me right I received the same message too. My thinking is that the GP version has extra security measures built in. I uninstalled it and then used the method in the first post (starting from step 1) but this time using the apk downloaded from the website. Since then I've been using ver 2.8.8931 and have had no problems.

Now, currently I have no idea if the website version calls for a 3 or 6 digit code. I'd say if it asks for 6, then you should be able to use the 6 digit Bluestacks gives you. If not, try 'linking an older version' of Whatsapp to Bluestacks like baddie0 says to get that 3 digit code. Unfortunately I have no idea how to do this. Hopefully someone can answer hed0nism's request if the answer isn't available elsewhere.

In conclusion I think you're better off downloading the apk from Whatsapp's website. I know if I get update message again, I won't go to be Google Play. Hope you manage to get it working!

Default It works, but can I update?

Hi there, really happy with Whatsapp on the Nexus. Have been using it for a week and a half.

Usually it asks me to update whenever I open it, but today it was telling me this version won't be supported in 1 day. So... should I update or not?

My question: Has anyone updated the App (is it possible after using Appguard?) and does it still work afterwards?

thanks,

Leon

Default upgrade of whatsapp

do not worry to uninstall old version which is not supported any more. Then you install the new version, you use appguard, it will unistall and reinstall it again and secure the app. When the app is installed you are not asked for any digits, and it works perfectly. I was a little bit scare, that it will not run, but there is no problem you should face.

To be more specific, here is my way to the Fixing of the Expired Whatapp:
  1. the old whatsapp error out but it gave me a "download" button to get the new version. I clicked it, it saved out an apk file.
  2. It wouldn't let me install this new apk so I went uninstall old whatsapp from Nexus7 (I left Appguard alone).
  3. Then I opened the new apk file and installed the new whatsapp, when finished, I hit close instead of opening app.
  4. I used Appguard to secure the new app.
  5. New whatsapp opened fine but I have to input my phone number again to verify my account (No more 3-digit/6-digit crap).
  6. It tells me they found old message and gave option to restore or start new. I restored the message and everything working perfect again. FYI, new version is v2.8.8828

Or just download What's App (Version 2.8.9448) from WhatsApp for Android and install it! At least that works on Google Nexus 7 that has Android 4.2.1 installed..

Hi Nuj Fuj,

Thank you so much for the tips. Unfortunately, I'm still stuck cracking my second Nexus. Pretty much stuck at the Nexus7 part. SMS verification failed - I can only hit "Call me" or edit number on Nexus7. And if I hit Call me, it will pops ""It looks like your client has been modified. Please download the latest version from our website". No option to put in 3 or 6-digit code.

My apk (for both nexus7 and pc) are both the same version, same file v2.8.9448. Downloaded from Whatsapp site... I'm tired of this. I have a feeling that once you messed up the first time, some kind of record remained on my nexus and made it not working. Hopefully no one get stuck like I do.

Default Update

You need to Download WhatsApp v2.8.7326 (h t t p://adf.ly/GKsJT), install it as per the instructions right at the top of the post on your Tablet, as well as in Bluestacks. Apply for the code as per the instructions and you will get a 3 digit code.

Use a temporary number not your actual mobile number, since you can only have it working properly on 1 device at a time using the same number.

Open Whatsapp on tablet, input the same number you used in Bluestacks and let it fail and select cancel and you will be able to input and activate using the 3 digit code.

Worked for me running Nexus 7 and 4.2.1

Newbie me so maybe my comment is superfluous to others, but I installed Whatsapp version 2.8.9448 downloaded from the Whatsapp site to my Nexus 7 3G without any problem. I have a data sim with own number.

Much thanks to Astrix from nexustablets.net and StrangerWeather from xda-developers forums!!!


UPDATE, 12/02/12...Ok I've tried the lastest version (2.8.8588) of WhatsApp and I've notice it is now giving out 6 digits instead of 3 digit code. For now use this version, WhatsApp version 2.8.4776

***For those of you who already installed the lastest version of the Whatsapp, go ahead and unintall and install the v2.8.4776 above then redo step #2.***


Required apps:

A. Whatsapp apk (since it can't be download via Google Play store, download the apk from the link below.)

B. Appguard apk: SRT AppGuard (don't worry about the German, the app is in English. This also can be DL using your N7, but you'll have to click and hold the "Download der appguard.apk" and Save link as.)


1. Install WhatsApp, once installed, close the app without running it.

2. Install AppGuard
- Start up open/run appguard.
- Select "Secure a new app"
- Select "Whatsapp"
- Appguard will take you through 3-steps:[*]scan and secure application[*]Uninstall existing application[*]Install secured application

Once the process is completed, within Appguard, you'll need to change Whatsapp Permissions by removing the setting for "Phone calls - read phone status and identity"

3. Download and install Bluestacks on your PC: BlueStacks App Player

4. Select "Messaging" and install WhatsApp on your PC.

5. Input your mobile number. You should get a text with the 3-digit verification code. Be patient, it can take few minutes.

6. Once you have your code, go back to your Nexus 7, run WhatsApp, press menu (3 dots on bottom right corner) then input the code.


And you're done!

Enjoy!
You forgot to add after the Step 6.. you need to put your number back on, and your country then click
call me, and it won't work after that you touch the 3 dots, and click
input code!
ta-da xD
also, remember to install the whatsapp with blue stack, right from the apk this dude gave u c;
ty so much

Ok, I managed to update it this way from v2.8.5626 to v2.8.8828... but it's still telling me that a new version is available.... not a big deal since it works though !
But anyone has tried to update it with the very last version (2.9.296 I guess) ?
Does it still work after the process above ? (I really don't want to screw it up now...)

Thanks !

Hi,
I have downloaded the latest version from the Whats app website - 2.9.2203 and I am getting stuck at the last step as well! I can't find anywhere to input the new 6 didgit code, as selcting the three dots is only giving 1 option, to contact support. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

***For those of you who already installed the lastest version of the Whatsapp, go ahead and unintall and install the v2.8.4776 above then redo step #2.***


Required apps:


A. Whatsapp apk (since it can't be download via Google Play store, download the apk from the link below.)

B. Appguard apk: SRT AppGuard (don't worry about the German, the app is in English. This also can be DL using your N7, but you'll have to click and hold the "Download der appguard.apk" and Save link as.)


1. Install WhatsApp, once installed, close the app without running it.

2. Install AppGuard
- Start up open/run appguard.
- Select "Secure a new app"
- Select "Whatsapp"
- Appguard will take you through 3-steps:[*]scan and secure application[*]Uninstall existing application[*]Install secured application

Once the process is completed, within Appguard, you'll need to change Whatsapp Permissions by removing the setting for "Phone calls - read phone status and identity"

3. Download and install Bluestacks on your PC: BlueStacks App Player

4. Select "Messaging" and install WhatsApp on your PC.

5. Input your mobile number. You should get a text with the 3-digit verification code. Be patient, it can take few minutes.

6. Once you have your code, go back to your Nexus 7, run WhatsApp, press menu (3 dots on bottom right corner) then input the code.


And you're done!

Enjoy!
I know a much easier way. Enter your homephone number, and hit enter, it will try and text it, but it will not work. If you select, Text not received, it will call the number and an automated message will tell you your verification. Just pick up your homephone and listen for the number and enter! It's much easier

How is it vague? I couldn't have been anymore direct. I wish I could keep testing it but I don't have N7 anymore to test.

Had the same problem with my nexus 10 (stuck at the last step).

But i found a solution !

Just install and config whatsapp on Bluestacks. (install, verify the account, all...)
Then save whatsapp application using TitaniumBackup
Copy the 3 "com.whatsapp..." files in /sdcard/TitaniumBackup/
Paste this tree files in /sdcard/TitaniumBackup on your phone
Restore the whatsapp app using TitaniumBackup

and that's it !

Hope you understand my english :P

How is this better than TabletTalk?


Seems like too much fuss when you can grab the free apps from the market and not deal with installing a bunch of crap to get this to work.
