WhatsApp fixer v0.1 - Not Working @ The Present
« on: January 03, 2013, 04:00:40 AM »
WhatsAppFixer

I don't know what I'm doing really!

So, everyone is complaining about whatsapp not working because of the server side checks and stuff.  I decided to poke around in it and try and override some methods that looked interesting :P

I can't test this myself, and this really is very basic. What I plan to do is release several versions over time with the help of testers telling me what stuff breaks/if something works.   What I want to try to do is stop it checking the server for the version :P or else spoof the version it is using so the server thinks it is okay.   

Honestly though, I think that the server side probably changed to be more efficient, and the code in the app itself wont work anymore even if you get past the outdated version alert.

Install it, and tell me when and if a popup appears that doesn't look like its from whatsapp :P

DON'T YELL AT ME SAYING IT DOESN'T WORK OR BREAKS SOMETHING!
as I said, I don't know what I'm doing. Someone smarter than me should do this instead ;) (hint hint DyZee) This is for testing to try and get this tweak working. In it's current state I highly doubt this will work!

I don't know if it works :P I can't test it out myself, that's why I posted it here, for people to try and tell me what works and doesn't with different versions as I go through them.

You would just install the .deb like you do any other package.  Meo said it doesn't work though, and crashes more stuff D:  so I will poke around in the headers more and see what else I can come up with :)

Any updates on this?
sadly no :(  I am going to look into methods with faking the backup data though, when I have time (might be a while :/ )

sorry guys some news for RUZZLE
Really off topic, and that will never work as that was made for iOS5, not iOS4, let alone iOS3.
