    Been reading a few blog posts about getting whatsapp working on tabs... seems fairly easy but also doesn't seem to work on this... anyone know of a hacked version?

    What is not working? I have not tried it on mine, but see no reason for it to not work.

    I have tried to download whatsapp as well on my 10.1 and it just says this isnt compatible with your device in the play store.

    I think this means the program has not been updated to work on the Galaxy 10.1 note upgraded operating system.:rolleyes:

    Could it be that you have to tick unknown sources?

    also mine is wifi only, would i have to have the 3g version or if i can get it installed on my wifi version will i be able to still input my phone number and use it?

    Just downloaded WhatsApp from the link above. Installed and set up using 3G. Sent myself a message to my phone and that worked just fine.

    Screenshot attached.


    EDIT: I did not have to use any tricks or anything like that, simply set up the same way I did on my phone.

    I think it is because it is WiFi only. Mine did not do anything like that and I have 3G version. For me a tablet without 3G is basically useless, as without WiFi you are stuck with no connectivity.

    Where did you purchase your 3G Note from? I'm still on the lookout but I don't want the gray.

    The 3g was a few hundred extra for me and I already have a wireless broadband modem and a phone capable of acting as one so it was a no brainer for me...

    That said, even the non 3g versions work, that website I posted above gives a work around.

    The problem is with the install, i'm quite surprised yours worked szadzik.. What version of ICS are you running? Did you install that .apk I posted above? Are you rooted?

    Will post my firmware later when I get back to my plac.e

    I installed the apk from the link above. I am rooted, that does not have anything to do with installing it.

    Do you have unknown sources checked?
