Title: [50% Solved] WhatsApp WD6 Problem - Partially Working Update!
Post by: Peternagy97 on December 22, 2012, 01:07:01 PM
Update by PierreP 2013-08-04: For those who made a backup when their WhatsApp was activated, see also: Restoring from a WhatsApp Backup in Dropbox? iPhone 3G (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,9657.0.html)

Update by PierreP 2013-06-22: The version currently in iTunes WhatsApp v2.8.7 (https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/whatsapp-messenger/id310633997?mt=8) "Requires iOS 4.3 or later" so it does not work on our older 1st & 2nd gen Apple devices. Thank you Apple, iTunes & WhatsApp for not supporting our iPod Touch 1G/2G & iPhone 2G/3G which cannot run any iOS above 4.2.1!  :-\

(http://vaiofseries.com/whited00r/WhatsApp_2.8.4_vs_2.8.7_Digit_Activation_Code_PierreP.png)

On the left side a screen capture of the old WhatsApp v2.8.4 for iOS 3.1 and above is not activated anymore by the WhatsApp servers & required a 3 digit activation code unique to a given device/phone number combo sent by their servers. On the right side: the newer WhatsApp v2.8.7 requires iOS 4.3 & above and uses a more secure 6 digit code.

UPDATE 3-Jan-2013: the problem seems partially solved for some WhatsApp v2.8.4 users. It seems that:

1- Who was using v2.8.4 and suddenly was kicked out from the service due to the block => WhatsApp v2.8.4 working again now

2- Who tries to install WhatsApp v2.8.4 on a device that wasn't already activated => still not working because verification code is not sent

...Thanks to everyone for sending the [AppTimeMachine] complaint email :)

Title: Why WhatsApp v2.8.4 or lower Never Activated Before Does Not Work!
Post by: PierreP on December 22, 2012, 03:26:47 PM
...The problem persists for those who never used whatsapp in their iphone.

Has someone tried activating whatsapp in another iphone (3gs+) and then installing in the 3g?


"Has someone tried activating whatsapp in another iphone (3gs+) and then installing in the 3g?..." - That will not work because even if the phone number is the same, the device is different.

Quote from this WhatsApp FAQ "Support" (http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/general/21009863/) page:

Can I verify one WhatsApp account to multiple phones, or with multiple phone numbers?

Many of you may have different phones or different numbers, and may want to use WhatsApp with one number, but on two phones or vice versa. However, at this time, WhatsApp can only be verified with one number, on one device.

Quote from http://www.whatsapp.com/legal/

Quote
We are not fans of advertising (http://blog.whatsapp.com/index.php/2012/06/why-we-dont-sell-ads/). WhatsApp is currently ad-free and we hope to keep it that way forever. We have no intention to introduce advertisement into the product...

So their business model is selling ad free apps. That is how they make their money. They reversed course under our pressure & re-enabled their server-side checks for older WhatsApp that were already activated once on a given specific device/phone number combo.

They will not activate old cracked WhatsApp v2.8.4 or lower on new device/phone number combo.  :'(

What is bad is that one cannot buy a legit, paid WhatsApp compatible with lower than iOS 4.3. Currently WhatsApp 2.8.7 in iTunes (https://itunes.apple.com/en/app/whatsapp-messenger/id310633997?mt=8) requires iPhone 3GS & newer so say it loud: Thank you Apple & WhatsApp!  >:(

So get Viber in whited00r 6's App Time Machine or an other alternative IMO and stop whining or trying tricks that do not work as several users reported in this thread

Or sometimes it's the site itself that blocks requests from older apps because they changed their authentication protocol, does server-side checks or whatnot.

An example is trying to upload to Flickr using a working on whited00r 6 Instagram. See [Solved] whited00r 6 Working Instagram - Workaround Flickr Crashing - IOS 3.1.3 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=6992.0)

Hi All,

I am also facing same problem.  :-\  Each time when i resend my number to register on whatsapp server, I get message which says "you are using older version of whatsapp"
I tried with 2.6.9, 2.8.1, 2.8.4, 2.8.7 versions.

Looks like apple and whatsapp have rolled their sleeves up to make ppl to throw their old iphones.
Has anyone got solution yet?


Thanks,

Try searching the interwebs with a "Past Year" (or Past Month) filter applied as Whatsapp may have changed their server-side checks recently: whatsapp logging problem "ios 3.1 3" (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&as_q=whatsapp+logging+problem&as_epq=ios+3.1+3&as_qdr=y)

You could change keywords for ios 3.0 or 3 or old or...  the ""says to Google exactly included in the results.

Thanks PierreP,

It was working like a charm since the day i installed WD6 (12-12-2012). Today all of sudden, today I got kicked off whatsapp server and was asked to re-register on whatsapp server which did fail for all versions i tried as I mentioned above.

I will keep you guys posted if I find anything.

Post by: jarros on December 26, 2012, 02:55:07 AM
I just had the same problem, and found a fix.

I was using WhatsApp and whited00r 5 and decided to upgrade to WD6.  I reinstalled the latest (available) version of Whatsapp from apptimemachine, 2.8.1 I think.  Suddenly whatsapp told me my version was old and needed to be updated.

I had just backed up my phone through iTunes before upgrading to WD6.  I downloaded Iphone Backup Extractor and pulled the file net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist file from my previous iPhone backup. I'm guessing this has the phone number registration info in it.  Then I copied it over to the /private/var/mobile/Applications/E3325B34-13F2-4321-88A1-263D559BAF44/Libraby/Preferences/ directory using WinSCP. (the directory might be different for you - the E3325B34-13F2-4321-88A1-263D559BAF44 folder was the one that had my WhatsApp.app folder in it).  When you copy over net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist, change the preferences so that the owner is "Mobile [501]" instead of "root".  I restarted the app and it works!

I think you can also copy over contacts and chat history from WhatsApp, but this will at least get it going again.

----UPDATE JAN 2ND---- this is NOT working anymore.  WhatsApp is asking me to verify my device again, even if I re-copy the old .plist backup.

Thank you for taking the time to post your WhatsApp fix using an app data backup of an activated WhatsApp v2.8.4 or lower.  8)

Could you edit your post as the exact name of the extension is .plist like so: net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist

Searching the interwebs found some stuff about it: http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist%22

"...I figured that a new password is generated each time you register your number" - So your fix work if you had already activated WhatsApp with your cellular number on a iPhone.

I used the free iTools (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=6899.msg67222#msg67222) iPhone explorer (works on Mac & PC, no ads like in iFunbox & much cleaner U.I.) which showed me the WhatsApp folder name (see attached image) instead of the cryptic app number path which on my iPhone 3G WD 6 is different from yours: /var/mobile/Applications/A306690F-D496-4019-98D2-7E9084B2261C

And you can use iTools instead of WinSCP to copy/backup, etc, etc.

The problem is that I never activated WhatsApp before with my cellphone number so there is no /var/mobile/Applications/WhatsApp/Library/Preferences/net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist

A WhatsApp workaround could be using a friend's newer iPhone with your SIM and get an activation code (or a net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist) that may work on iPhone 3G. Maybe if the newer WhatsApp versions also use a 3 digit code. I tried with Android and it was a 6 digit code.

BTW on App Time Machine @ the present it's WhatsApp 2.8.4 and it is the most recent version working on iOS3.1+ but you can't get an activation code with it because of new server-side checks by the WhatsApp server that requires higher than v2.8.4 (Sorry, your version of the app is too old... error) so there lies the value of your workaround using a backup of WhatsApp that was activated before the server-side checks changed.

WhatsApp 2.8.7 requires iOS 4.3 and up so no go on iOS 3.1.3 whited00r 6.

Ok, i'll try to backup my .plist with this activated cell number
thanks

Edited : the only need is a net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist right ?
Because there is a 2 file.plist more but can't be copied
and the net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist can copy/backup to my computer

I read this in a iPhone forum in Spanish (http://www.iphoneros.net/problemas-en-general/20613-problema-con-whatsapp.html#post83813):

1- Open your backed up net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist with Notepad.

2- Under <Passcode> you should see your 3 digit code.

3- Enter it in your new WhatsApp 2.8.4 and bingo.

Please confirm if it worked for you.

I get the solution your giving and sound very reasonable.

Unfortunately, during the day I got tired for not making whatsapp work on my iPhone 3G and I just uninstalled it without making a backup. This is awful since now I can't recover the key code by getting the .plist file because the information contained there is like if the whatsapp has been installed for the first time.

Any help on this? I really don't know what to do anymore.

Well i had the same problem all day.

After trying a lot of useless things...

I deleted the app that was asking me for phone number and instaled the one available from apptimemachine (2.8.4), before opening whatsapp i restored from dropbox (a data i saved from 12-12-12 before installing wd6) using DataDeposit, opened it and did't asked me for phone nomber again, just worked.

Hope it helps

Hey, I just registered to see if I could find a solution to the same problem. The software is awesome so far. I have no idea how to find another working net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist from anywhere; Google comes up pretty empty. I wonder if it would work just to roll back to Whited00r 5.2.1? Can you confirm that this would be successful before I go ahead and do it? I got this phone for my wife and she only really wants to use Whatsapp and a few other things so it's pretty key for her to use it.

Thanks

Claudia G, Dec 27 17:15 (PST):

Hi,

Thanks for your message.

In order to connect to WhatsApp, or activate your number, you will need the latest version of WhatsApp - v2.8.7 - available from the App Store on your iPhone. Please note that iPod and iPad are not supported devices.

The latest version of WhatsApp for iPhone requires iOS 4.3 or later. Regretfully, Apple does not allow new app updates to be compatible with both iOS 6 and older versions of iOS, effectively ending support for iPhone 3G and the original iPhone. Because of Apple's policy change to new App Store submissions, there is nothing we can do at this time for users with older versions of iOS.

If you have an iPhone 3GS or newer device, please update to iOS 4.3 or later.

If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to contact us. We would be happy to help!

WhatsApp Support Team

Say thank you to Apple for their Planned Obsolescence (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=apple+Planned+Obsolescence) technique to push sales of new products by removing support on older IOS's.

I replied this and will update this post:

Quote
PierreP updated the Support Ticket:

But I have a iPhone 3G with v2.8.4 so I can't install v2.8.7.

Why don't you just generate a 3 digit code using my phone number posted in this ticket and send it to me via email?

Thanks.

I've just done what PierreP suggested us to do and wrote to Whatsapp support. I got a similar answer,

"The latest version of WhatsApp for iPhone requires iOS 4.3 or later. Regretfully, Apple does not allow new app updates to be compatible with both iOS 6 and older versions of iOS, effectively ending support for the iPhone 3G. Because of Apple's decision to stop supporting these devices, we can no longer provide new app updates for iPhone 3G users."

I replied back also asking for a 3 digit code but haven't received an answer yet.

Does anybody know if this is kind of an arrangement made between Apple and Whatsapp? Or this is only has to be with Apple's decision? If this is the case, I believe that it's worth trying to push Whatsapp in order to at least give access to his older versions in iOS, let's forget the updates but only to have the service working, like in older smartphone that are using another OS.

Why don't you share to us your file net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist in order to try in our mobile phoneediting yours?...

You can't do that because when changing phone number they require a new check and generate a new authorization code so you will be back to the "Your app is too old..." error again.

If you are permanently changing phone numbers, you can delete your WhatsApp account and then verify your new number.

I have got a ifone 2G JB with redsnow & upgraded to whitedoor6 (pzz - also moded the 'systemversion.plist' file to fake the iOS version to 4.3.3 which allowed me to install the 2.8.3 version and was working fine till these guys updated it to the newer 1)

It says verification of device failed, possibly this is because of editing or changing ur Phone.
I hope somebody comes with a solution soon.

WhatsApp FAQ - Can I verify one WhatsApp account to multiple phones, or with multiple phone numbers? (http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/general/21009863)

WhatsApp can only be verified with one number, on one device.

On a second thought..was also thinking about apps other then whats app carrying out similar functions with a call feature available as well...  Thinking about the technical aspect about it, for now whatsapp aint that secure application since the data is not encrypted at all...

Well obviously with all the people following these WhatsApp threads and posting in them if someone has the solution to fix the WhatsApp server-side checks then they WILL post the solution so it's useless to ask that again and again IMO.

In case it may help, after trying a lot of useless things, I downgraded to FW 3.1.2, install WhatsApp 2.8.4 and before launching it, I restored a previous backup directly from ITunes. After rebooting the phone, I launched Whatsapp and surprisingly it worked, the question is how long until i get kicked off again from the auth servers....
What i don't understand is what everybody says about the .plist file containing the 3 digit passcode. Now that is working I checked that file, but i didn't see any password tag with the code...
Hope it helps.

3G redd00r - whatsapp (too old) - deleted whatsapp

3GS stock ios5 - put my Card in - activated whatsapp on the new phone

put the Card back into the 3G

reinstalled latest whatsapp (from my iTunes library)

copied the plist from 3GS to 3G

whatsapp seems to work - but wont connect !!!

i am inside the "normal" menu - but cant press the "send" button (it is Grey)

the top bar of whatsapp keeps Sayin "connecting" but restarts every 5-7 sec.

whatsapp Settings "not connected"

any ideas ?!

What i don't understand is what everybody says about the .plist file containing the 3 digit passcode. Now that is working I checked that file, but i didn't see any password tag with the code...

...same here - no Password inside the plist (itools) !

Apparently no because the only WhatsApp app available on iTunes @ the present requires iOS 4.3 and up so iPhone 3GS at minimum.

"...I guess I have to buy a new phone now.." - This is exactly why Apple dropped support to more than 50 million iDevices gen 1 & 2. They want to make more money and sell you new stuff.

Apple could easily require that app developers include iOS backward compatibility code but they don't care about owners of their devices sold just a few years ago.

Can you tell me who else exactly does care about owners of their older devices? Samsung won't even give you ICS for the i9000 which could easily handle it. But yeah... it does suck since this was 90% of the reason for my wife getting the iPhone 3g...

That's what i came here for.
I solved the issue couple days back restoring from an old Backup, but all of the sudden i got kicked off again from the Whatsapp servers, so it doesnt look really good. I guess this is a server issue and whatever fix we found i won't last forever until whatsapp decide to do something about it i'm afraid....

Same here.  Yesterday afternoon when I opened WhatsApp I got the error "Failed to verify your device. This is most likely caused by you upgrading or changing your phone."  Then it asked me to verify, where it says the version is too old.

I tried reverting to my old backup .plist file. Same problem.  Looks like we're SOL.

Post by: jlb on January 02, 2013, 04:56:19 PM
    Hi all,
    Same thing happens to me: .plist file replacement doesn't work anymore.  I've tried as well to install last version (2.8.7) changing iOS version number (according to rjsidhu01's suggestion in one of previous post) but just freeze after running so doesn't work either.
    As far as I've seen, version 2.8.4 fails when tries to get status from servers, so I guess is a limitation which has been introduced by WhatsApp and not by Apple policy limitations, as they're arguing in my request of not supporting iPhone 3G. Version 2.8.4 was running perfectly until yesterday (on my case) but definitely is something done by WhatsApp.
    Do you know if we can make some kind of pressure?
    Regards.

Hi, this is what I had to do to keep 'connect' with my friends ...

Until yesterday (January 1st) WhatsApp worked well on my iPhone 3G with iOS 4.2.1, this morning 10:00 am Spanish time stop working :S. I keep getting messages with the push-notificactions but when I enter the app I can do nothing, said that my version is older...

Options? Search in AppStore to find alternatives, I liked eBuddy XMS. Is free, includes all platforms: Android, Nokia, WP7, BlackBerry, iOS 4.0 (also iPod and iPad) and works similar to WhatsApp. I have installed the App and said to my contacts: "If you want to write me use eBuddy XMS, WhatsApp stop working in my iPhone :S."

I hope that someone would be useful this information until we can re-use WhatsApp on our phones.

Greetings!

I am not using whited00r nor redd00r. I have stock ios 4.2.1 jailbroken. I used to hace whited00r on my 2g but bought a new phone. I don't think i have 2.8.4, I suppose the one i have is 2.8.4 because it was the last one with support for ios 4.2.1. What i made was editing the systemversion.plist but it just wont work, after frustating a lot i put it back to 4.2.1 and on the next day i tried again the activation and it just entered whatsapp normally, not even asked me to put the 3 code pass that ther are supposed to send you.

3. Edit the line where it states the firmware version is 3.1.3 and change it to 4.3.1
4. Save and exit.

You might need to reinstall Whatsapp from TimeMachine, but that's it. As silly as it sounds, it works.

Hi,

Thanks for your message.

Please try updating to the latest version of WhatsApp - v2.8.7 - from the App Store: http://www.whatsapp.com/download and see if the newer version resolves your issue. The latest version contains numerous bug fixes and feature improvements for WhatsApp Messenger.

In order to connect to WhatsApp, or activate your number, you will need the latest version of WhatsApp Messenger - v2.8.7 - available from the App Store on your iPhone. Please note that iPod and iPad are not supported devices.

The latest version of WhatsApp for iPhone requires iOS 4.3 or later. Regretfully, Apple does not allow new app updates to be compatible with both iOS 6 and older versions of iOS, effectively ending support for the iPhone 3G. Because of Apple's decision to stop supporting these devices, we can no longer provide new app updates for iPhone 3G users.

If you have an iPhone 3GS or newer device, please update to the latest version of iOS. Instructions for updating can be found at this Apple Support page: http://support.apple.com/kb/HT4972

WhatsApp is also supported on Android, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, and select Nokia devices. Find out more at http://www.whatsapp.com/

Title: WhatsApp Joke Hoax SystemVersion.plist Edit NOT Working
Post by: PierreP on January 04, 2013, 06:01:38 AM
*****

I just tried the joke solution quoted below on iPhone 3G running whited00r 6 based on iOS 3.1.3 with a phone number from Costa Rica with 8 digits and it does not work.

I think it's a hoax to make you waste your time but if a known whited00r user with more than a couple of posts confirm that it works and mentions his device/firmware/WhatsApp version and country I will edit this post.

What I did exactly:

1- Already had the free & useful Cydia > iFile on iPhone 3G. If iFile asks for the License, just hit the Later button.

2- Used the WIFI server feature on iFile to connect to my computer and backed up SystemVersion.plist using a web browser (Firefox 18.0 on Windows 7 64-bit).

Code: [Select]
http://192.168.1.34:10000/System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
3- Pressed Done in iFile server to break the connection, turned off WIFI.

4- Uninstalled WhatsApp v2.8.4 downloaded from App Time Machine.

5- Navigated on the iPhone using iFile to: /System/Library/CoreServices/ added a iFile Bookmark of that folder and edited SystemVersion.plist changing <string>3.1.3</string> to <string>4.3.1</string>.

6- Turned off the phone, waited a couple of seconds.

7- After turning the iPhone back on, went to > Settings > General > About > to confirm fake iOS info:

(http://www.vaiofseries.com/whited00r/WhatsApp_SystemVersion_plist_Mod_Not_Working_PierreP.jpg)

8- Went to Time Machine > Downloads where I kept a copy of WhatsApp v2.8.4 and re-installed it. Waited a couple of minutes to receive the installed confirmation message.

9- Tried to use my SBSettings WIFI toggle by swiping the Status bar as usual but it was broken by the edit so went to Settings to turn WIFI on as well as turned on Notifications.

10- Started WhatsApp, it asked for my phone number, gave it and when asking to SMS or call me for the 3-digit activation code it gave me the dreaded "Sorry, your version of the app is too old..." error.

(http://www.vaiofseries.com/whited00r/WhatsApp_2_8_4_Time_Machine_Error_PierreP.jpg)

11- Turned off WIFI and had a 'No Service" error instead of my regular cellular provider.

12- Repeated step 6 and tried WhatsApp again on 3G data just to get the same WhatsApp server-side denial and error.

13- Uninstalled WhatsApp and repeated step 6.

14- Turned back on the iPhone and downloaded a fresh copy of WhatsApp from Time Machine.

15- Repeated step 6.

16- Same error.

17- Uninstalled WhatsApp v2.8.4 from Time Machine & repeated step 6.

18- Installed a different version by Persephone. I use several of her apps including Pandora Radio and Instagram and they all work fine: WhatsApp Messenger [WhatsApp Inc.] (v2.8.4 LP os31)-Persephone.Lr12.ipa to no avail: same error.

19- Repeated step 6 and tried again: same error.

So until a recognized whited00r user says otherwise this is a hoax and a total waste of time.  >:(

Now on to reverse step 4 and do step 6 again.  :-\  Edit: After doing this, all is OK, SBSettings is working fine again and now I hate WhatsApp and Apple for not supporting our devices even more.

I've just tried this and IT WORKS: Not!

1. Install iFile from Cydia.
2. Open iFile and navigate to /System/Library/CoreServices, then open SystemVersion.plist
3. Edit the line where it states the firmware version is 3.1.3 and change it to 4.3.1
4. Save and exit.

You might need to reinstall Whatsapp from TimeMachine, but that's it. As silly as it sounds, it works.

*****

Warning! (http://www.vaiofseries.com/Smiley/panic.gif)

I think he used what bcooperizcool used for his tweak, firmware faker. That didn't really work for me though. I really don't think that changing what the systemversion.plist says would affect the whole system though.

It will affect the whole system ;) Apps can decide what to do based on the firmware that they detect the device is on, along with tweaks.  So this will mess things up a little there probably, as well as restoring in itunes may have issues :/

*****

7 Other users + me = 8 with failure or problems with that "solution":

...Doesn't work either! ::)

no this doesn't work for me also

Hmmm after i try this and i have problem with SBsettings, sbsettings always crash and my icon layouts broken at all, help please :(

this doesnt work for me please explain me what u r doin after having edit about version than u reinstall the app from time machine

look i have edited my vesion and i have done restart and i have also reinstall whatsapp but it still says sorry too old
see my screenshots

i tried this but not worked on ios 3.1.3

...i tried modifying /System/Library/CoreServices>SystemVersion.plist and info.plist>CFBundleVersion on iphone 2g with whatsapp 2.8.2 and 2.8.4

...I have got a ifone 2G JB with redsnow & upgraded to whitedoor6 (pzz - also moded the SystemVersion.plist file to fake the iOS version to 4.3.3 which allowed me to install the 2.8.3 version and was working fine till these guys updated it to the newer 1)

   I've tried change version in plist file (with both versions, 2.8.4 and 2.8.7) and it doesn't work. +1 to hoax on my side...

I am starting to think that Wathsapp has begun unlocking old  phones/apps and that's the reason why the app is working for many people and is not for many others...
So bottom line for me, there's no magic solution here, people doing all those things that got the app working, it was just a coincidence, but until Whatsapp pepole decide to grant access to everyone affected we'll keep reading these kind of posts.

Finally I got WhatAapp to work on my iPhone 3G iOS 4.2.1 JB.

This is the method I used:

I have modified the version name of the WhatsApp from the info.plist file. In order to do that, I have opened the mentioned file with the plist viewer integrated in the iFile App (Cydia). In my case, the file was located under the path:

file://localhost/var/mobile/Applications/1082EBD1-0453-4C21-B82F-134E914978D1/WhatsApp.app/

I know that the location 1082EBD1-0453-4C21-B82F-134E914978D1 is not unique and that you might have another randomly (?) generated path name that holds your WhatsApp directory and if you don't want to search for it manually (like I did) there is a dedicated software that can do it for you. Google for it as I forgot its name.

Once the info.plist file is located open it and modify the CFBundleVersion string from 2.8.4 (latest running on iOS 4.2.1) to 2.8.7 (latest available).

Save and close.

Open WhatsApp. When prompted for the 3-digit activation code go back to your mobile number selection. Insert a fake one (I put another WhatsApp mobile nuber) and rather than confirm it cancel it and type in your real number.

Voila, the trick is done!

No activation code request anymore. 

I hope it works for you too.

Peace,

Munz.

Hi ! Well I tell them that I have an iPod touch 1G, I update it with of WD6 and everything is wonderful .. but when I install whatsapp tells me that my device does not support this application. Then I go to cydia and install the Whatspad and when I go to whatsapp, i put my number, but it says that this version has expired. I try installing it in many versions from IFunBox and the only one that can not be installed is 2.8.7, which is not compatible with new devices under iOS 4. I searched every possible way to make them work the previous versions or install the new one  and nothing happens. Even try installing Vshare and it crashes when I open it. Already dont know what else to do, please help me ..

Explanation here: App Time Machine - Help the community and save WhatsApp for old devices (http://www.apptimemachine.com/compatibility.php)

Can you hack into the WhatsApp server?

I opened a support ticket in WhatsApp Support (http://whatsapp.zendesk.com/anonymous_requests/new) (do it too!) requesting a 3 digit code to workaround the "your app is too old.." error and they replied this:

Quote
WhatsApp Support - Claudia G, Dec 27 17:15 (PST):

...The latest version of WhatsApp for iPhone requires iOS 4.3 or later. Regretfully, Apple does not allow new app updates to be compatible with both iOS 6 and older versions of iOS, effectively ending support for iPhone 3G and the original iPhone. Because of Apple's policy change to new App Store submissions, there is nothing we can do at this time for users with older versions of iOS.

sir if whatsapp is not avalible please upload a file of ebuddy xms i need it urgent

It's a good thing to learn how to fish instead of asking for one.

As per search links & tricks in [Tutorial] whited00r 6 How-To Find iOS 3.1.3 Compatible Apps - iTunes Filter 3.x (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=7108.0)

<snip>

But there is a caveat: if the app description says v1.1 requires iOS 3.0 for example but there are also higher versions of that app like 2.0 linked in the page then those newer versions may require a more recent iOS the only solutions I found so far are to search each [app name] + version number to see what they require...

So:

1- Find out which version of the app is compatible with your iOS: "ebuddy" "requires ios 3.0"] (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22ebuddy%22+%22requires+ios+3.0%22) - See Tutorial for iOS variations tips.

2- Step #1 told me that the version I want for whited00r 6 based on iOS 3.1.3 is: ebuddy 4.5.2 so search the web for a cracked ipa of it: "ebuddy" "4.5.2" ipa (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22ebuddy%22+%224.5.2%22+ipa) or try a variation: "ebuddy" "4.5.2" ipa cracked (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=%22ebuddy%22+%224.5.2%22+ipa+cracked)

Good luck fishing!

You can't do that because when changing phone number WhatsApp server requires a new check and generate a new authorization code so you will be back to the "Your app is too old..." error again.

From WhatsApp FAQ: I changed my phone number, how can I update WhatsApp? (http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/general/20971798)

If you are permanently changing phone numbers, you can delete your WhatsApp account and then verify your new number.

Post by: ajl on January 06, 2013, 06:02:42 PM
Good day, and first post!

I have been investigating this topic. It appears that the (new) authentication is launched like so:

2013-01-06 17:57:24.557 WhatsApp[1176:4603] LL_N  -[XMPPConnection logStanza:recv:] [Line 2961] send/xmlstreamstart resource='iPhone-2.8.4-443' to='s.whatsapp.net'

If we could somehow make WhatsApp use a different value for the resource key (instead of 'iPhone-2.8.4-443', use 'iPhone-2.8.7-443' or whatever is valid for 2.8.7), this could work.

It also appears that this value 2.8.4 is NOT constructed from Info.plist or iTunesMetadata.plist, since changing the value in those files does not change the value that is passed as a value via resource; changing the "Bundle Version" in both to "2.8.7" still passes the same launchOptions to WhatsApp on startup:

2013-01-06 17:57:17.636 WhatsApp[1176:207] LL_A* -[WhatsAppAppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:] [Line 937] Device: iPhone
2013-01-06 17:57:17.655 WhatsApp[1176:207] LL_A* -[WhatsAppAppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:] [Line 938] System: iPhone OS 3.1.3
2013-01-06 17:57:17.659 WhatsApp[1176:207] LL_A* -[WhatsAppAppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:] [Line 939] WhatsApp version: 2.8.4


Does anybody know where the default launchOptions come from, where they are stored (as part of the iOS application repository data perhaps, like dpkg in Debian?), and how to change them so that we can pass "2.8.7" as the "WhatsApp version" in the last line?

In addition, what is the valid "resource" value for 2.8.7, can somebody check in their /User/Applications/[whatsapp-uuid] tmp and Documents folder that contain archive.log and console.log?

Best regards, Achim

If you are using an iPhone 3G and have WhatsApp 2.8.4, you can continue using WhatsApp. You will need to re-verify the same phone number that you were previously using. And that's all: your whatsapp will be working again.
 
But they forgot about the iPhone 2G. On this phone WhatsApp doesn't work yet.

Simply changing the version number would not work: I used Fiddler to fiddle (pun intended ;) ) the http headers of the connection, changing the user-agent to version 2.8.7, and the old-version error came anyway.

Indeed I am on an iPhone 2G. Just tried to hack the iOS version to 4.2.1:

plutil -key ProductBuildVersion -value 8C134 /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
plutil -key ProductVersion -value 4.2.1 /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist


#check firmware version number after change
plutil /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

Reboot, and the new settings becomes "effective".

To return to 3.1.3 (7E18), simply use
#plutil -key ProductBuildVersion -value 7E18 /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist
#plutil -key ProductVersion -value 3.1.3 /System/Library/CoreServices/SystemVersion.plist

Indeed WhatsApp now thinks we are on 4.2.1:

2013-01-06 20:57:00.008 WhatsApp[369:207] LL_A* -[WhatsAppAppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:] [Line 937] Device: iPhone
2013-01-06 20:57:00.027 WhatsApp[369:207] LL_A* -[WhatsAppAppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:] [Line 938] System: iPhone OS 4.2.1
2013-01-06 20:57:00.031 WhatsApp[369:207] LL_A* -[WhatsAppAppDelegate application:didFinishLaunchingWithOptions:] [Line 939] WhatsApp version: 2.8.4

but it still replies "Too old", so no idea what to do next. I also tried to change the HW version, just in case:

sysctl [-bn] -w hw.machine="iPhone 1,2"

but of course that value is read-only ;-)

On the other hand, I have no idea how WhatsApp distinguished between iPhone 3G (which seem to work again) and iPhone 2G (which is still broken)...

:-(

Simply changing "2.8.4" to "2.8.7" certainly would not work, as we see the following:

send/xmlstreamstart resource='iPhone-2.6.7-5222' to='s.whatsapp.net'
send/xmlstreamstart resource='iPhone-2.8.4-443' to='s.whatsapp.net'

So the part of "-WXZ[Z]" is probably important for the version number ID as well. If somebody could check what 2.8.7 on a jailbroken iPhone really uses, perhaps that would help us?

I made a custom .ipa package just pay my beer ok ?? i am still working on the workaround to get the code in new registrations until now this works for people that have the whatsapp or have had the whatsapp cheers !

Do you expect people to pay before having tried your ipa? You have a strange idea of donation :)

After trying many things like emulating a server or simply changing the versionnumber I just realized that the Whatsapp-Developers might have listened to us :o

I just downloaded the Whatsapp-App from TimeMachine (there are recently 2 of them, but only 1 can be installed) as I did for my research many times before. After asking for my phone-number it just went on without the server-side version check or sending a code via sms.

I'm using my Iphone 3g with WD6 normal.

I used Whatsapp on this phone before as well as with this phonenumber but I flashed and then installed WD6.

I don't know if they generaly changed something or maybe it's just for the people who were using whatsapp before.
I raid something about an iphone 3g support but not for other devices...

Maybe some experts here know more or can explain things, but it seems like it's working for more and more people again.

(I finally registered after 2 months of reading n stuff :3 )

UPDATE 3-Jan-2013: the problem seems partially solved for some WhatsApp v2.8.4 users. It seems that:

1- who was using v2.8.4 and suddenly was kicked out from the service due to the block => WhatsApp v2.8.4 working again now

2- who tries to install WhatsApp v2.8.4 on a device that wasn't already activated => still not working because verification code is not sent

Post by: hcj on January 09, 2013, 10:25:44 PM
Ok this is what I did:
1.   Got a 3gs (friends phone) and installed WhatsApp 2.8.7 and activated my number.
2.   Copied from the 3gs to my desktop using iFunbox the file net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist
3.   Restored my 2g back to factory (3.1.3)
4.   Installed WhatsApp (2.8.4)
5.   Using iFunbox I replaced net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist with the one I had copied from the 3gs
6.   Edited the info.plist using iFile and change the version from 2.8.4 to 2.8.7 and also turned off LSRequiresIPhoneOS 
7.   But no luck 
8.   So a then tried and change the info.plist version from 2.8.7 to 2.8.6 same result

Hey,

for me Whatsapp is still not working.

I had running Whatsapp 2.8.4 with Whited00r 5.2.1 on my iPhone 3G.
But it stopped working. So i installed WD6 and Whatsapp 2.8.4 from AppTimeMachine. But it is not working. My version is too old.

But the weird thing is, that I still get the Whatsapp Push Notifications. So, if a friend texts me in whatsapp I can read the Push Notification but I am not able to enter Whatsapp because my version is too old.
I really dont get this one. It seems that it works but it doesnt....

- Immediately it asked me to give permission for accessing my phonebook (other times I re-installed it never asked me this, pressed OK)
- It asked for phone number (presetting the international code to +1, as if it was really the first time that I installed it; the other times I just re-installed the app my international code was already pre-set to +39 which is my country)
- I entered my phone number and the app started immediately leading me to my favourites but it was so quick that I suspect the server "recognised me" because it did not have a dead time to load the numbers (I have a LOT of contacts)
- DONE and it all work fine with notifications too!

Cool, thanks to you AndreaACME for sharing your solution in details with the community!  8) +1 Internets for you.

A suggestion if you are on Windows and maybe it also works on the Mac version: I use the free, ad free and standalone (meaning no install necessary!) iTools (http://itools.hk/) and there is a plist editor tool integrated in it. You just click on the .plist and edit it.

So with iTools you can skip the SSH part and when you navigate to the folder /private/var/mobile/Applications/ you see app names instead of "277835D1-D596-..." which makes following your mini tutorial much easier.

And instead of "...To find anything that contains WhatsApp in your apps use (from SSH root prompt)..." you just use the iTools search box.

iTools includes an SSH tool and other useful tools besides being a nice alternative to iTunes to manage all your stuff.

Thanks for this explanation.
I did exactly what you said.  But I had only one Whatsapp version installed and I did not find anything from whatsapp in the om.apple.mobile.installation.plist
After rebooting and reinstalling whatsapp, it asked me for permission to accessing my phonebook (I allowed it), but my international code was already set to +49, and after entering my phone number it asked me for the code and --> whatsapp version was still too old.

I guess later the day I will install WD 5.2 again, because this was the last version my whatsapp worked with.  Maybe I need the same firmeware as before.

So far, thanks to all

- Sono entrato in SSH nel melafonino
- Ho trovato molte copie di WhatsApp nel direttorio /private/var/mobile/Applications/ (Es:  277835D1-D596-... e 50A1FBCD-E3A1-... etc, etc) e li ho cancellati tutti
    Per trovare rapidamente tutti i direttori che contengono WhatsApp tra le applicazioni usare (da SSH come root):   ls -ld /private/var/mobile/Applications/*/WhatsApp.app
- Poi ho controllato nel file /private/var/mobile/Library/Caches/com.apple.mobile.installation.plist che contiene tutti i dettagli delle icone sulla SpringBoard e le loro posizioni, le versioni dei file, etc.  Ho cancellato tutti i TAG e tutte le voci contenenti "WhatsApp" (la riga contenente <KEY> e quasiasi cosa contenuta tra il <DICT> ed il </DICT> seguente) ed ho riavviato, l'icona finalmente non era piu' presente e WA non risultava piu' installato
- Ora che tutto e' stato cancellato ed il melafonino e' appena stato riavviato, sono andato su  TimeMachine ed ho scaricato una nuova copia di "WhatsAppMessenger-08101284734.ipa" (7.21MB)
- L'ho installata ed avviata
- Immediatamente mi ha chiesto il permesso/accesso alla rubrica telefonica (altre volte che l'ho re-installato non me lo aveva piu' chiesto, premuto OK)
- Mi ha chiesto il numero di telefono (pre-impostando il prefisso internazionale a +1, come se fosse stati installato per la prima volta; le ultime re-installazioni mi trovavo il prefisso gia' pre-compilato con  +39 che e' quello della mia nazione)
- Ho inserito il numero di telefono e l'app e' partita immediatamente portandomi ai miei contatti preferiti ma e' stato talmente rapido il caricamento che sospetto che il server abbia riconosciuto il mio dispositivo perche' non ho dovuto aspettare per il caricamento dei miei numerosissimi contatti
- FATTO e tutto funziona bene compreso le notifiche push!


I hope it helps.

Do you think it is appropriate to uninstall iTunes from my PC?  Will iTools be enough?

No, iTools needs to have the dreaded iTunes installed on the computer as it uses several of it's functions but without ever opening it so cutting all the crap.

That is why it is so incredibly small (6 MB for the Win version!) and still can do so many things like installing/removing programs, creating ipa's from apps installed on the iPhone if you lost the original one, backing up your apps data, converting video formats by simple drag & drop, creating ringtones tool, cleaning up the phone's temp files, etc, etc.

I use iTunes maybe about 5% of the time for the rest iTools rules.

Post by: PierreP on January 11, 2013, 08:17:52 PM
Nine days after I asked WhatsApp "Support" an other question above their canned reply I just received this:

Quote
We apologize that we have not gotten back to you yet...

My reply to their "Regretfully, Apple does not allow new app updates to be compatible with both iOS 6 and older versions of iOS..." was:

Quote

iPhone 3G iOS 3.1.3, WhatsApp v2.8.4

But it is iDevices gen 1 and 2 that made you popular in the first place and
now you kick us out?

It does not matter that you cannot make new apps compatible with iOS lower
than iOS 4.3, what about the fact that you are blocking us on your servers???

Why are you blocking WhatsApp v2.8.4 and not sending the 3-digit authorization code and re-direct us to iTunes where your current app is not compatible with armv6 iDevices?

Do you want to force us to buy new iPhones?

So keep up the pressure guys and send emails to them:

Doesn't work for me ! .. I Uninstalled whatsapp ..And installed the version from the time machine ..And i got the same error !
Now what ?!  :o :(

Missing essential info so we cannot help you:

1- Device model and firmware. If not whited00r: iOS version. For example: iPhone 3G iOS 3.1.3, WhatsApp v2.8.4
2- Version of the app you are talking about
3-  Was your device already activated once in the past with WhatsApp servers?

Quote from: http://www.apptimemachine.com/compatibility.php
UPDATE 3-Jan-2013: the problem seems partially solved for some WhatsApp v2.8.4 users. It seems that:

1- Who was using v2.8.4 and suddenly was kicked out from the service due to the block => WhatsApp v2.8.4 working again now

2- Who tries to install WhatsApp v2.8.4 on a device that wasn't already activated => still not working because verification code is not sent

So if you got from WhatsApp in the past an Activation code from the exact same phone number on the same iPhone then read AndreaACME's old WhatsApp stuff leftover removal mini guide here and my reply below his post to simplify his steps with iTools: http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=7068.msg69604#msg69604

Unfortunately mine is still not working.  I got it working on my 3G during the initial fiasco of December (see p. 1) by replacing the .plist file, but now mine is refusing to get up and running again.

I've followed AndreaACME's steps to uninstall, remove WhatsApp install data from the installation.plist file (there were no WhatsApp references to delete), reboot, reinstall, and launch. WhatsApp is still asking to go through the verification code, at which point it says my version is too old. I closed WhatsApp, replaced my WA plist file from the v2.8.4 backup (from December, when it WAS working), and when I relaunch WhatsApp it says the version has failed to verify and wants to go through the verification process again, which fails because of the same old "sorry, old version" message.

Any ideas?

It's an iPhone 3G Running WD6
The whatsapp Version is 2.8.4 i Think ..It's the one on the time machine
Yes, It was activated in the past with whatsapp Servers ..

No it does not mean that you have baseband 6.15 as whited00r 6 does not change the baseband of your device.

Go to Settings > General > About and at the bottom see your Modem Firmware baseband info.

Or use f0recast (http://ih8sn0w.com/) to get more essential info (works on Mac & Windows). I just connected my iPhone 3G to my computer with iTunes closed, started the free standalone (means no install required) f0recast and it instantly gave me all the essential infos about my iPhone 3G except for the fact that it is running the awesome whited00r 6 firmware  ;) :

Hey guys,

- I have a iPhone 3G with whited00r 6.
- My whatsapp has been working before on my 3G with Whited00r 5.2. (whatsapp 2.8.4)
- One dayI got the notification that I have to validate my phone number one more time, I tried it but since this moment my whatsapp version is too old.
- I installed whited00r 6 but still not working
- I also tried everything that AndreaACME posted, but my whatsapp is still not working

--> BUT i get the push notifications if somebody is texting me in whatsapp, for me this means that I am still connected to the whatsapp servers. I just need to verify my number one more time.

I dont know what to do.
I hope that somebody may help me.

Hello,

What if I do not have installed whited00r in my iPhone 3G? The whatsapp version I was using before this problem came up was v2.8.2, iOS v4.2.1 and baseband 06.15, and my iPhone is jailbroken and unlocked.

After reading that multiple users now are able to have whatsapp service  back again in their 3G devices, I've tried several times to uninstall and re-installed whatsapp but with no luck and I'm still receiving the notification that my version is too old. I've done this using whatsapp v2.8.2 and v2.8.4

Do you know if the lack of whited00r in my iPhone 3G has something to do with the reason that I'm still not able to have my service back?

I've been reading on how to install whited00r on 3G devices and I really wouldn't like to go for the process it's mentioned (downgrade baseband and install all the requirements that are suggested).

I also have the same situation as many in this post, I receive the push notifications but when I open whatsapp it asks for the 3 digit code. The way that I've handel this situation so far is by using an android emulator on my Mac but the idea of "mobile" is just lost by doing this.

Really hope you can help me. Thanks so much.

This is the solution i have WD6 iphone 3g just i download a custom .ipa version from  website (no advertising..  :-X ) and then the following steps ..  try with the 2.8.4 maybe it's works too

Updates:
01/11/2013 - If you ask for the activation code just use this simple trick to activate your whatsapp

- Install the custom .ipa package with iFunbox

- Open the whatsapp and when ask for your phone number and your code tell a friend with whatsapp installed to send some msg to you at the same time and thats it.

As I posted a few days ago, I got it working for my iPhone 3G WD 6. I will try to explain again being more specific:

First of all, I didn't even knew about whited00r, I got to know about it when I randomly was searching how to fix whatsapp and suddenly I found this forum through Google. Hey, iPhone 3G users, I strongly recommend whited00r. It improves your phone A LOT. It feels I'm having a new phone.

Before this, I had my iphone 3G with its latest iOS (4.2.1 I guess) Jailbroken. Whatsapp was working fine. Suddenly on January 1 it stopped working. I found this post and read it from the beginning. Tried a lot of things that didn't work for me like changing plist file for example, or installing older versions of whatsapp.

I was so mad (still am) because even though I had my phone with JB i bought Whatsapp before JB. I paid for an app that should've been working, STILL for this phone. I joined here and sent the prewritten mail to whatsapp asking them to restore it for old devices.

Finally on January 15th I decided to install WD6. I didn't care losing my pics, contacts, music (had no backup). As soon as I finished installing WD6 I installed Whatsapp 2.8.4. through my computer (I had downloaded an ipa from a webpage someone had posted before on this forum) and it worked. Didn't ask for code or anything.

But yes, as someone said, you must have had whatsapp before I guess.

Hope this helps

Thank you gianpi for taking the time to report here and contribute to the community and welcome to the whited00r forums.  8) So +1 Internets for you.

Me too I had iOS 4.2.1 unlocked on my iPhone 3G and could not believe how faster & fluid it got on whited00r 5.2.1 and now on whited00r 6 Unlocked.

"...I didn't care losing my pics, contacts, music (had no backup)" - You could have backed up everything easily: I use the free, small, awesome, intuitive but yet powerful and ad free iTools (http://itools.hk/) (click on English top right of the page, works on Windows or Mac and it's a Standalone - meaning no installation needed and it's portable so if you carry a Mac (5.71 MB, English only @ the present) and a Windows (2.74 MB, English, French & Russian U.I. @ the present) version on the device's Mass Storage or on a USB stick so you can use it on any computer which has iTunes 10+ installed on it (required) while on the road w/o installing anything on it!

(http://www.vaiofseries.com/whited00r/iTools_Apps_iOS_PierreP.jpg)

I also use the free iFunBox (http://www.i-funbox.com/) sometimes (not a Standalone so it requires installation on the computer) but iTools most of the time as it loads much faster w/o ads and the U.I. is much simpler & cleaner. I barely use iTunes anymore.

"...But yes, as someone said, you must have had whatsapp before I guess" - To be precise, your iDevice + your phone number combo must have been activated once in the past by the WhatsApp servers.

It is already known that, if you had it activated previously, it will work again.

The problem persists for those who never used whatsapp in their iphone.

Has someone tried activating whatsapp in another iphone (3gs+) and then installing in the 3g?

We are not fans of advertising (http://blog.whatsapp.com/index.php/2012/06/why-we-dont-sell-ads/). WhatsApp is currently ad-free and we hope to keep it that way forever. We have no intention to introduce advertisement into the product...

So their business model is selling ad free apps. That is how they make their money. They reversed course under our pressure & re-enabled their server-side checks for older WhatsApp that were already activated once on a given specific device/phone number combo.

They will not activate old cracked WhatsApp on new device/phone number combo.

What is bad is that one cannot buy a legit, paid WhatsApp compatible with lower than iOS 4.3 (iPhone 3GS & newer) in iTunes (say: Thank you Apple & WhatsApp!).  >:(

So get Viber in whited00r 6's App Time Machine or an other alternative IMO and stop whining or trying tricks that do not work.

Can I verify one WhatsApp account to multiple phones, or with multiple phone numbers?

Many of you may have different phones or different numbers, and may want to use WhatsApp with one number, but on two phones or vice versa. However, at this time, WhatsApp can only be verified with one number, on one device.

Sorry but it is your post that is not true.  ;)

1- Read post #1 in this thread about why WhatsApp stopped working & now is again. It has nothing to do with your firmware upgrade. And while you are there follow the link & send protest email to [email protected]#$%&*! WhatsApp.

2- Read users testimonials above (like gianpi's who explained how he did it, just a few posts above yours) about WhatsApp now working for previously activated unique device/phone number combo.

3- You probably have some WhatsApp garbage on your device from the time they were blocking older versions.

4- Find above the mini tutorial by AndreaACME about cleaning up that garbage (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=7068.msg69608#msg69608) (and my post below it) & download a fresh WhatsApp version from App Time Machine, reboot & test.

5- Even better: do a clean fresh install of whited00r 6: whited00r Tutorial - Installation (http://www.whited00r.com/installation.php). Don't skip these essential steps: reboot twice before making any tweaks/modifications to the iPhone & set as New in iTunes (DO NOT restore from an olde backup!).

 5.1- Enable Push Notifications by contributing $1 for the servers & unique push certificates of WD recommended PushFixer.com (http://www.pushfixer.com/), download a fresh WhatsApp version from App Time Machine, reboot & test.

6- Report back here if it works for you to add one more testimonial and by doing so help other WD users & contribute to the community.  8)

Hey,

I did exactly what you wrote in your points 5 and 5.1.  Well I did not enable Push Notifications because I use the normal WD6 version, so that I can activate my iPhone via iTunes.

I set it as new ,rebooted and downloaded whatsapp from AppTimeMachine. Installed it and rebooted the iPhone.
WhatsApp asked me to send push notifications and to use my address book.
I entered my number, and had to enter a code. But then: WhatsApp Version is too old.
That sucks.

But I still geht the Push Notification if somebody texts me:

1- Reboot again (not respring) or even better:

Hard Reset often solve many problems: hold both Home & Power buttons until the Apple logo appears and let go of the buttons & smell the roses while it is doing it's thing.  :)

No worries, hard reset will not change any of your info, tweaks & apps on the device.

2- Do you have a full backup or at least an app data backup of when WhatsApp was working so you could retrieve the authorization code as described in some posts above?

On the bright side you now have WhatsApp working a little bit & a fresh clean whited00r 6 install.  :)

I did the Hard Reset. But still not working.

Sadly, I dont have a older Backup.
I remember the Activation code the sent me, but it I try it whith this code, I just get an Error Message and have to re-enter my phone number.

Well, I guess I have to deal with it.

Sorry about that.  :-\

Why not install the whited00r 6 Unlocked version and try it again? Some users above said that WhatsApp did not even ask for the code & worked.

On the plus side, if you travel (using cheap pre-paid SIM) or sell the iPhone 3G any SIM will work. I do not see any benefits in installing the Normal version.  :o

And why not try to just close WhatsApp instead of entering the code and reboot?

*****

"...Sadly, I dont have a older Backup" - So you did not RTFM!  ;) First paragraph of whited00r Tutorial - Installation (http://www.whited00r.com/installation.php)

Quote
Backup your Data.

The installation process is safe and tested, but you are doing this at your own risk. For this reason we suggest that you backup your data (our firmwares have include an iCloud-like application to backup your Game saves to dropbox since Whited00r 5), and transfer your applications from the device back to iTunes on your computer by following these simple steps: Right click on your device name in iTunes, select "Backup" and then "Transfer Purchases".

(http://www.vaiofseries.com/whited00r/iPhone_Simpsons_haha.jpg)

Next time before changing the firmware, use the free, small, awesome, intuitive but yet powerful and ad free, Standalone - meaning no installation needed iTools (http://itools.hk/) (click on English top right of the page, works on Windows or Mac) I mentioned above to do a full backup + individual apps data backup. You can even use it for an installed app that you lost the original ipa and create one on the fly!
Title: Re: Why Cracked WhatsApp 2.8.4 Never Activated Before Does Not Work!
Post by: azimech49 on January 27, 2013, 05:03:14 AM

Sorry PierreP, its really hard to keep up with so many posts or info.

I'm letting my imagination go wild here and figured out something.

Since Whatsapp only works on previously activated iPhones (despite different firmwares/versions/etc), my only guess is that they save the activation information with the IMEI registered with a phone number, right?

So I was thinking... if someone of you could try, since I can't.

-Borrow a newer iPhone for the purpose of experimentation, say a 3GS
-Change it's IMEI to that of the 3G we want to activate.
-Clean install Whatsapp with the latest version and let activate, on the newer iPhone, with our SIM Card inside.
-Since IMEI + phone number are linked and activated, delete Whatsapp, reinstall on the older 3G.
-See what happens...

profit?

as I say, its pure imagination and speculation. I'll ask for a friend's iphone 4 and see if it works in the next few days.

WA authentication, on iOS, is based on the WLAN MAC Address, not IMEI (for more infos look here (https://github.com/tgalal/yowsup/wiki/yowsup-cli). Using yowsup-cli you can fake any phone, the problem is that the previous install won't work anymore, and you will screw up even (if any) a working backup (I did :( ).

Could you more precise please?

Do you have iPhone 3G Baseband 05.15.04 with whited00r 6 Normal carrier locked version instead of the whited00r 6 Unlocked version (recommended for being able to use any SIM card including prepaid bought abroad when traveling)?

Normally people want to carrier unlock their iPhone 3G and if they have Baseband 05.15.04 then they must do one of those Tutorial methods (thank you Apple for making our lives more difficult):

[Solved] iPhone 3G iOS 4.2.1 Stuck in Baseband 05.15.04 - No Service (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=7134.0)

[Solved] whited00r 6 iPhone 3G NO SERVICE NO NETWORK Baseband 05.15.04 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=7243.0)

If you are happy with your iPhone now, no need to change the baseband and my guess is that it will not fix your [expletive] WhatsApp problem.

Why not try the free Viber alternative that you can find in the App Time Machine? One can find as well 32 other iOS 3.1.3 compatible free social networking apps (Facebook, Skype, Twitter, WhatsApp  :o, Kik Messenger, etc) in App Time Machine, an exclusive store only for whited00r 6 users.  ;) That is not mentioning 170 games & about 200 other apps @ the present.

I did it on my iPhone 3G WD 6 & Viber sent me instantly the registration code & it works fine.

So far I am fine with this (Besides the WhatsApp problem  ;D )
Maybe I will downgrade my Baseband, if I will have some time soon.

I am already using Viber, but I just have 3 friends using it.

Well, I try everything to get WhatsApp back, I know that it will work one day... hopefully.

guys, i wanted to let you know that im working on the yowsup library and managed to get a forced six-code activation number sent to my iphone from the python console, on my computer.

the problem is that whatsapp has stopped using the wlan mac authentication method for iOS.

im poking around but i hope i can get to authenticate my phone, so next time, servers let me pass through like all users that activated before last server update, faking phone data in the desktop app.

2. Download WhatsApp 2.8.4 on your iPhone 2G/3G.
3. Copy file "var/mobile/Applications/[Whatsapp]/WhatsApp.app/Info.plist" of the iOS 6 able device into the same directory in your old device.

Do you think it could work, when using UDID Faker to see the UDID and replace the older devices UDID with the UDID of the newer phone. It would think that it's the same device and the number wouldnt change.

The above fake iOS trick is bad advice and does not work and will mess up all kinds of other stuff on your iPhone 2G/3G.

There is zero proof in your post that it made WatsApp for iOS 4.3+ work on an armv6 CPU device like the iPhone 3G which does not understand CPU instructions sets made for newer devices with armv7 CPU's.

You can find the full explanation in the sticky (it means a thread pinned at the top of the forum list) Whited00r 6 - FAQ & Troubleshooting - READ BEFORE POSTING! (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7258.0.html)

So don't do the fake iOS trick!  :o

And if you do want to try it anyway, be prepared to be forced to do a fresh clean firmware install on your iPhone 2G/3G  :-\ and be sure to make a full backup before messing with this:

Hi, i read all the pages so i'm pretty aware that there is no solution at this time. I don't know a lot of things about creating an app, but it wouldn't be possible to get verification code from an other phone (like my dad has a iPhone 4S and he doesn't use whatsapp at all), i put my sim card in his phone, ask for a whatsapp verification code, and then i don't enter it. I quit and go into my iPhone 2G and try the code i receive on the other phone ?

3. Just take the WhatsApp backup and insert it in your iPhone 2G with fresh installed WhatsApp.

Hi,
I've been trying all possibilities of getting whatsapp working on wd6 + iphone 2G, with not luck as everyone else.
What about faking the activation server? If we know what answer does the server give instead of the "too old" message, we can proxy a fake server, redirect the activation petitions to it and configure it the way that always returns "OK".

I know it's harder than I'm explaining, but if someone can get the messaging protocol of the activation process, by reverse engineering as some web clients do, I can assist in the web server / web page part.

Any suggestions? If someone comes with an easier solution I'm on board! ;)

I was thinking about it (driving me mad not be able to use whatsapp i think about it all day :) ), and when we were able to send whatsapp message at the time of the update, we've been kicked out of the app, so even if the activation works, there's still server check AFTER the verification code. So i think there's no solution for this, except whatsapp inc hear us...

hi guys, sorry for not posting any update.

as i stated in my last post, we can use the yowsup library which is a whatsapp api.

i could perfectly (but not easily, nor quickly) make an app for iphone 3g, but first i would need Python working on the device.

as i researched, theres a python console on the app store.

anyway, i could take months to get a fully working program, but it is possible after all, maybe another, more skillful developer could try and get faster results.

for the meantime, i've been using WA as a command line app, extremely slow, i feel like im at the matrix and trinity talks to me in the console.

lol im getting a 3gs tomorrow morning... sadly, i had to fall under apple's assumptions and get a new one.

So, is it working on 2G?


I have a 2G in which Whatsapp was working, but I got server blocked. Today I've updated to WhiteDoor 6 and I've installed new Whatsapp from TimeMachine.


Im getting asked about the code, obviously I can't get it, but could I activate it if I get my old code? Or is it just for 3G?


In the good case, where can I find my old code since I've upgraded to WD6 without any data backup?

Title: Hacking WhatsApp 2.8.4 Whited00r Developers Team Request
Post by: daneel1 on March 07, 2013, 08:40:32 AM
Alright, so I've read through this entire thread now and I have a request to make to the developers of Whited00r.

Your current stance on this issue seems to be to ask users to contact whatsapp and complain about the lack of support. The pre-written message from the site also has some vague reference to a class action (any info on that? or is it just an empty threat?)

Whatsapp is a corporation. They are perfectly capable of ignoring for as long as they please. I do not think the solution will come from them.

On the other hand there are third party reverse engineered implementations of whatsapp cropping up for unsupported platforms everyday. Wazzap powered by yowsup is a perfect example.

So here's my request, would the devs consider it possible to try and hack up a frontend for yowsup or port a java app or some such?

I only make this request since I'd rather put my faith in you guys than some nameless faceless corporation.

Your current stance on this issue seems to be to ask users to contact whatsapp and complain about the lack of support. The pre-written message from the site also has some vague reference to a class action (any info on that? or is it just an empty threat?)

Whatsapp is a corporation. They are perfectly capable of ignoring for as long as they please. I do not think the solution will come from them.

On the other hand there are third party reverse engineered implementations of whatsapp cropping up for unsupported platforms everyday. Wazzap powered by yowsup is a perfect example.

So here's my request, would the devs consider it possible to try and hack up a frontend for yowsup or port a java app or some such?

I only make this request since I'd rather put my faith in you guys than some nameless faceless corporation.
There was a thread long ago about this, and even a small attempt by me, I just don't know enough, and I haven't had the time to dive deeper into coding it :(

Welcome to the Whited00r forum!  8)

Sorry, it is not possible for the Whited00r Developers Team to try to hack WhatsApp 2.8.4 so it could send a new account creation for a unique specific iPhone + Phone Number and send a 3 digit Verification Code. WhatsApp version 2.8.4 is the last one that can work on iOS 4.2.1 and lower.

(http://www.vaiofseries.com/whited00r/WhatsApp_2_8_4_Time_Machine_Error_PierreP.jpg)

There are several reasons for that:

1- The all volunteer unpaid Whited00r Developers Team is very small and BTW if you guys would like to join us, you are more than welcome as we are working at the present on adding new features and trying to make better & faster the upcoming Whited00r 6.1 update (no release date yet, so don't ask as we will announce it when it is ready) Just PM (Personal Message) bcooperizcool (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?action=pm;sa=send;u=954) and BCC (include a copy to me) to me please.

2- There are thousands and thousands of apps out there so the request list would be infinite.  :-\ Our mission & priority is a community about iOS modding and firmware cooking fully supporting all ARMv6 CPU family of Apple devices: iPhone 2G-3G, iPod Touch 1G-2G wich Apple & iTunes more & more stopped supporting.  >:(  See the What is Whited00r  (http://www.whited00r.com/about)page on the main site.

3- The problem is WhatsApp's algorithm or method they use to generate the verification code using your phone number & specific iPhone model on which you want to activate a new WhatsApp account.

  Try searching the web with these examples for more info: Hacking WhatsApp "2.8.4" (https://www.google.com/search?&q=Hacking+WhatsApp+"2.8.4") or "whatsapp" "ios" generate verification code (https://www.google.com/search?&q="whatsapp"+"ios"+generate+verification+code) or any other relevant keywords combinations.

4- The new WhatsApp version 2.8.7 that requires iOS 4.3+ that only newer devices with the armv7 CPU can run (see WD FAQ (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php?topic=7258.0)) sends a 6 digits verification code while v2.8.4 requires only 3 digits. So WhatsApp with it's new algorithm or verification method decided to exclude all older iPhone 2G/3G & iPod 1G/2G running v2.8.4 so say at the top of your lungs: thank you WhatsApp & iTunes!  :-\

5- Your current stance on this issue seems to be to ask users to contact WhatsApp and complain about the lack of support.... - Well it worked for users who had already activated their iPhone + phone number combo as WhatsApp reverse course on this. See the always up-to-date  [50% Solved] WhatsApp WD6 Problem - Partially Working Update! post #1 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.0.html) in this thread.

But WhatsApp will not let new users activate because their business model and only revenue is selling the app, not advertising so they know that all new users are trying to activate cracked versions & that is understandable.

What is not OK is that you cannot buy a iOS 4.2.1 and lower compatible WhatsApp version on iTunes currently.  >:(

There are windows clients like THIS ONE (http://lowlevel-studios.com/wassapp/downloads) that manage to go through the whole process of activation. Maybe there is something that can be done with that.
There is also this project:
http://www.openwhatsapp.org/ (http://www.openwhatsapp.org/)
which uses the whatsapp protocol with an alternative client. Perhaps it can be ported to the iphone?
Title: Re: [50% Solved] WhatsApp WD6 Problem - Partially Working Update!

No need to port that client. There is a command line implementation called Yowsup-cli. All it needs is a frontend which works on the iPhone.


Hopefully someone well versed in iPhone coding can pick this up and make our devices complete.

i already wrote in this thread about this library, used to register my number and it worked but it would take too much time to get an app working properly for everyone, it is pretty much useless.

From what I've read, it can work on your computer but it is not transferable in the WhatsApp 2.8.4 on the iPhone 3G.


Could you be clear and explicit in your explanations please?

It has nothing to do with WhatsApp 2.8.4 or 2.8.7 or any other version. I do not understand why you keep referring to the your first post again and again.


This is a completely reverse engineered implementation of whatsapp. And like the poster above you says, it works. All it lacks is a GUI.

OK. Then how many digits has that "...reverse engineered implementation of whatsapp" activation code got my dear Dr. Watson?  ;)

Because WhatsApp 2.8.4 requires only 3. So that workaround is good on a computer but it is not transferable to iPhone & iPod 1st & 2nd gen currently because of their ARMv6 CPU limitations in understanding newer instructions sets designed for ARMv7 & ARMv7s CPU. See the Whited00r FAQ (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7258.0.html) for more detailed explanations.

So the problem is MUCH more than a simple lack of GUI.  :-\

Post #1 in this thread explains who can use WhatsApp 2.8.4 and who cannot @ the present and is kept up-to-date of all useful development about the WhatsApp issue so that is why I keep referring to it as many users tend not to read it nor the Whited00r FAQ (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7258.0.html) before posting repetitive questions that were already answered many times in the Forum.  :-\

I'm not aware of the activation code yowsup sends because I've never used it myself.


I admit my knowledge on this is quite less.


I was basically just going on the hope of the previous poster who said he had registered his number using yowsup (so it is possible!) and various other things I had read elsewhere on the web.

By the way I don't think so.

However I never cracked anything on my phone.

Could be that a "profile expired" crashes the app?

Use the free & powerful iPhone or iPod or iPad browser/manager iTools (http://itools.hk/en_index.htm) (click English top right of the page, both Windows & Mac versions are available, iTunes 10.6 or newer needs to be installed on your computer and turned off for better results).

Welcome to the Whited00r forum!  8)

Thank you Xander for taking the time to post your suggestion about how to solve the WhatsApp issue as it may help other Whited00r users with the same problem.   So +1 Internets for you for giving back to the WD community.

I edited your images because:

A- Many users are viewing the Whited00r forum on mobile devices so smaller is better by cropping useless part of the images. Also you can use Photoshop or other software and "Save for web" which compresses the images as many users have slow internet connections so they load faster.

B- Your net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist in the Notepad screen capture showed your personal phone number!  :o So I grayed it out to protect your privacy. I suggest you do the same if you linked those images in an other forum ASAP.

C- For that same reason as B, do not post or attach your private net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist without editing out your phone number.

Now if you read post #1 & 2 in this thread (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.0.html), I suspect that you are in the first group: your unique device/phone number combo was previously activated by WhatsApp and that is why your net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist is showing a passCode which was generated and sent to you by the WhatsApp servers.

And that is why you are in the "[50% Solved] WhatsApp" group and it is working for you.

Users in the other group who had never previously activated a specific device with a specific phone number will not get an activation key or PassCode because the WhatsApp servers are refusing to generate new ones for anybody that is running an iOS lower than 4.3: iOS 3.1.3, 4.1 or iOS 4.2.1.

If one tries to use a different newer device or a different phone number to get an activation key and tries to apply it to their iPhone 3G it will not work because those activation key or PassCode are specific to each unique device + phone number combination.

*****

A suggestion if you are on Windows and maybe it also works on the Mac version: I use the free, ad free and standalone (meaning no install necessary!) iTools (http://itools.hk/) and it has a plist editor tool integrated in it.

So with iTools you can skip: "Copy it to your computer the file, open it with notepad..." and "Save the Your_Choice.plist file and copy and overwrite it inside the app folder in your iPhone" and edit the .plist files directly on the iPhone or iPod!

(http://vaiofseries.com/whited00r/iTools_iPhone_3G_File_System_Apps_User_plist_Editor_PierreP.PNG)


Before flashing any new firmware, you can also use iTools to backup your WhatsApp or Facebook for example + it's data (your PassCode info) so after installing a new firmware you can re-install the app with it's data (it will show a blue Doc icon in iTools) and it will work fine.

See [Tutorial] Backup Apps & Data BEFORE Upgrading iOS Firmware WD 6 3.1.3 4.1 4.2.1 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7731.0.html) for more info.

I am sorry to contradict you but even if I don't care about WhatsApp and do not use it, I have currently an iPhone 3G on which I freshly installed iOS 4.2.1 to test some stuff and just for the purpose of contributing to this thread I installed WhatsApp 15 minutes ago using iTools and before running WhatsApp I checked in > iTools > iPhone > File System > Apps (user) > WhatsApp > Library > Preferences > (direct path: /var/mobile/Applications/WhatsApp/Library/Preferences) and the only two .plist files in there were:


I then closed iTools and started @#$%&! WhatsApp and naturally it gave me the dreaded "Sorry, your version of the app is too old. Please download the latest version from the App store" fuzz you and your old device error.  >:(

(http://www.vaiofseries.com/whited00r/WhatsApp_2_8_4_Time_Machine_Error_PierreP.jpg)

I closed WhatsApp and opened iTools and checked the plist's again in Preferences and now a new net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist was in there. I opened it with iTools PList Editor, checked and NO PassCode to be found contrary to what you suggested.  :'(

I repeated the process and requested again WhatsApp's 3digit activation code and got the same too old error.

1- What is your device model and iOS version if not Whited00r? What is your WhatsApp app version?  :o

2- Did WhatsApp sent you a registration code? Did you have already an account with them?

3- Was WhatsApp working on that device before you flashed the firmware?

4- How did you install WhatsApp? From a fresh ipa or using a backed up version you made that included your data & passcode? Or used a backup that you made with DataDeposit?

It is very important to be precise & complete as thousands of our forum users are following this thread & I don't want thousands of people wasting their time with something that does not work or is not similar to their situation.  :o

1. my iOS is 4.2.1 too
    WhatsApp:  2.5.6
     iPhone 3G

2. Nope, WhatsApp did not send me a verification and did not have an account, instead of "your version is too old" error I got this message: "Network Problem - Sorry, we could not connect to our sms authentication server. This is probably due to a poor network connectivity. Please try again once you have a better network connectivity."

(http://i.imgur.com/xt5OUh4.png)

after putting the right code in it it is working.

3. I don't know, I am using it after the firmware flashing.

4. I did not use any backups it's a fresh WhatsApp 2.5.6 ipa install.

Thank you Xander for the additional essential info.  8)

Well your case is even more strange because if you could not even connect to the WhatsApp's servers then how the heck did you get that PassCode?  :o

Both filipebaltazar above & I reported that we do not have any PassCode data in our net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist and no other users with a non-activated WhatsApp posted that they have it so let's wait for other Whited00r forum users to report back.  ;)

Welcome to the Whited00r forum!  8)

Well read again Xander's post above, step 7: WhatsApp > net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist > PassCode (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.msg77169.html#msg77169)  ::)

You don't have a <key>PassCode</key> so nothing you can do my friend.  :-\

The screen capture Xander took the time to make & post, again:

Please let me know if any.

Sorry, we can't re-write the entire thread.  :-\ Start at Post #1 (always updated with any new working solution) & 2 to see why you can't use a WhatsApp activation code generated on an other device or phone number.

BTW I also had the dog-slow and RAM hog iOS 4.2.1 on my iPhone 3G before I discovered this site a few months ago and you should try the zippy Whited00r 6 and you won't believe how fast & fluid the iPhone 3G can really be, not talking about the built-in App Time Machine store with more that 500 free compatible apps.  ;)

It worked for me. I did the exact same procedure.

iPhone 3G, Stock iOS 4.2.1
Installed WhatsApp version 2.5.6


It said "Network Problem - Sorry, we could not connect to our sms authentication server. This is probably due to a poor network connectivity. Please try again once you have a better network connectivity"
I used iTools and opened net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist and there a "PassCode"
Used it and worked normal.

Thank you uli4351 for reporting back about how you solved the issue as it will help other Whited00r users with the same problem.  8)  So +1 Internets for you for giving back to the WD community.

1. my iOS is 4.2.1 too
    WhatsApp:  2.5.6
     iPhone 3G...

Now do you see guys why I keep on asking for important info like iOS & app version?  ;)

Both you and Xander had success with WhatsApp version 2.5.6 on iOS 4.2.1.

Now the question: is it because of 2.5.6 only or the combination of WhatsApp v2.5.6 + iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone 3G?  :o

I searched on the interwebs for ever and could not find a WhatsApp v2.5.6 ipa so could you upload it to Dropbox and share the link so I could test it on both iOS 4.2.1 on iPhone 3G and also on iPhone 3G running Whited00r 6 which is based on a custom iOS 3.1.3? You could PM me the link if you would prefer not to post in this thread.

If you do not have one yet, you can get a free Dropbox account here (http://db.tt/MUfcmKnI).

Well, it works, but i can't chat, maybe my bad Wifi Connection it says "Sorry, we failed to register you with a chat server. Contact support? and the Favorites tab is Stuck in "Creating Favorites"
The 2.5.6 version here: http://mediafire.com/?zmmjyg0fzzd

i'll try with 2.8.4 version and feedback if something happens.

Okay, seems like 2.8.4 doesn't shows the "passcode" string in the net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist, but anyway I can't enable the chat.
Title: Re: WhatsApp 2.5.6 > PassCode Trick NOT Working - iPhone 3G iOS 4.2.1
Post by: PierreP on April 14, 2013, 04:07:17 AM
I can confirm what Xander first reported above and confirmed by uli4351:

iPhone 3G, my custom iOS 4.2.1 using WhatsApp v2.5.6 downloaded from uli4351's link posted above.

After requesting a 3-digit code it said "Network Problem - Sorry, we could not connect to our sms authentication server. This is probably due to a poor network connectivity. Please try again once you have a better network connectivity" instead of the your app is too old I got with WhatsApp v2.8.4 and WhatsApp v2.8.7 on an iPhone 3GS.

I kept WhatsApp running and used iTools (how-to as described above) to open net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist and there a <key>PassCode</key> followed by an integrer and I used it's value as the input in the 3-digit code input window.

Now it is taking for ever for WhatsApp to complete "creating favorites" with the spinning wheel and I will update this post after further testing.

Under the WhatsApp > Settings tab > Network Status > it says "Not Connected".  :o

Edit: I have the exact same errors as uli4351: "Sorry, we failed to register you with a chat server. Contact support?" and the Favorites tab is stuck in "Creating Favorites" so it is NOT working.  :'(

This is one step further than we have gotten before though, so amazing job finding that Xander (think that was who posted it originally)! 

It is an accumulation of many things that is most likely to provide a solution ;)
Take the most recent jailbreak for example (iOS6.1.x), it uses many different holes/loop holes/exploits to eventually reach the end goal, by stringing the exploits together in just the right way :)

I don't think that it's a step further as we are still not connected to the WhatsApp server which is exactly where WhatsApp decided that our old devices are not welcomed anymore .  :'( 

WhatsApp v2.5.6 is only giving a different type of error when requesting the 3 digit activation code but still not permitting access to their server-side network.

Proven not working at the present: WhatsApp v2.5.6, v2.6.1 & v2.8.4 and v2.8.7 requires iOS 4.3 and above.

BTW I updated my post above with screen captures of the WhatsApp v2.5.6 errors on iPhone 3G.

In the big picture it is a step further ;)  It may not seem important now, but it is :)  This is a big step knowing the passcode is saved on file, we just don't know how to use it yet ;)

Don't know how useful this maybe. I'm running WD6 on an iPhone 3G, and I haven't installed Whatsapp before on this number (Though I did register once on a Symbian device).

I Downloaded WhatsApp v2.5.6 with the link given by Xander. When I ran the app, it just asked for my number, and DIDN'T ASK FOR A CODE! Then it asked for my screen name, and is now stuck on Creating Favorites.

Yes, all reports that includes device model, iOS & app version number are useful to the Whited00r community so thank you.  8)

Since that phone number was already registered once, that's why you got an error at a different stage than me probably.

But since WhatsApp always requires a new authorization code when you change either the device or the phone number then not asking you for one mean means that it will never work on that device.

Well waste your time trying it or read a couple of posts above yours or read post #1 & 2 in this thread which one should ALWAYS do anyway before posting in any thread in any forum to avoid repetitive basic questions already answered so many times.  :-\

Thanks for the mention. But I guess I'll be switching back to Symbian since it doesn't look like Whatsapp will work on ARMv6 devices anytime soon.   :( :(

Post by: whitewind0w on April 14, 2013, 11:00:43 PM
Have you tried adding <key>PassCode</key> manually?

I have an iPhone 3GS on 3.1.2 which was activated before but won't let me sign in anymore for some reasons. Any idea?
(I know that I can update the 3GS to the newest firmware but then I would lose the unlock so it's not an option.)

Whatsapp works fine on my iPhone 3G though.

-------------------

Also on the activated 2.8.4 version there's a key string called "JabberID" which is like this:
[email protected]

Maybe we can also add that manually. I'm no expert, just some ideas.

Welcome to the Whited00r forum!  8) And thanks for your contribution.

Could you make a copy of your activated WhatsApp 2.8.4 net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist to your computer using iTools as described in the post above: Re: WhatsApp > net.whatsapp.Whatsapp.plist > PassCode (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.msg77177.html#msg77177) then using Notepad you can edit out your personal info and post it here using copy/paste and the Insert Code button (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/Themes/WDVertex/images/bbc/code.gif) in the forum's Post Reply window?

Code: [Select]

About your iPhone 3GS on iOS 3.1.2 WhatsApp error question: Whited00r supports only 1st & 2nd gen devices (but does it well IMO  ;) ) and any other devices is off-topic except in the Free Forum! - Everything Off Topic Elsewhere Goes Here! (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/board,20.0.html) board but as a one-time pointer: you need iOS 4.3 or later to install the current WhatsApp 2.8.7 so either you update to iOS 6.1.3 and loose jailbreak or you are lucky and some SHSH blobs (http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/SHSH) unique for this device were saved to Cydia or other servers for older jailbreakable & unlockable iOS for iPhone 3GS. You can use Redsn0w, Sn0wbreeze, TinyUmbrella, etc. to check that and maybe also f0rcast. Download the free f0recast, Snowbreeze, iREB and iDetector For iPhone 3GS tools here: http://ih8sn0w.com/ and good luck!

Post by: iKoopa on April 16, 2013, 10:39:03 PM
I've solved the problem. I really don't know how but I did it! Here the explanation that could be useful:
First of all my iPhone isn't jailbroken neither whited00r is installed, so is factory PURE!

After realizing that I had 2 version of whatsapp between iPhone and iTunes (respectively v2.8.4 and very.2.8.7), I erased the the new one (we know the last version recognized is the 2.8.4) and I transfered my purchases from iPhone (via iTunes, right click on iPhone setup) and consequently I found the same version of whatsapp. So I erased the app from phone and I re-installed the version that my phone recognize. After launch of application whatsapp asked simply for my cell number (I think because already registered).

The only problem actually is that it doesn't send and receive pics. I hope is a server temporarily problem.
I'm good because I obtained my app back!;-)

Thanks to everybody, reading your works gave me the power to find a way without jailbreak my phone. Your work is great but I don't need it now. Congratulations!

...if whatsapp still works on my iPhone 3G after installing whited00r?
My iPhone is running really slow and I think whited00r would make it faster.

Thank you whitewind0w for reporting back about the WhatsApp issue as it may help other Whited00r users with the same problem.   8)  So +1 Internets for you for giving back to the WD community.

It is extremely important to backup your already working apps + your private data they contain so you can re-install them after flashing any firmware.

For apps that do not require logging in or activation like WhatsApp or Instagram, you do not need to backup the data unless you have some games in which you are at level 5 for example then if you install the app only you will be back to level 1 or install the app + data back up and the game will remember at what level you already were and your profile name for that game.

And that includes if you want to install the fast & fluid Whited00r 6. I had the dog-slow iOS 4.2.1 on my iPhone 3G before I discovered Whited00r a few months ago. I was so impressed that I joined the Whited00r team.  :)

Because if you just install a normal WhatsApp (or Instagram for example) you will not be able to login into your WhatsApp account as ton of users reported in this thread.  :o

But if you back up app + data with iTools for example, you can re-install it in Whited00r in 15 seconds.

See this for more details & screen captures: [Tutorial] Backup Apps & Data BEFORE Upgrading iOS Firmware WD 6 3.1.3 4.1 4.2.1 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7731.0.html)

Welcome to the forums :)

Sadly, you are just as far as everyone else has gotten :/  No one has gotten further without having had an account logged in previously and having backed up that application data :(

Stay tuned to this thread, because if there is a solution found, it will be posted here ;)

You should be able to find iFile in the BigBoss repo... [spoiler] or by adding http://cydia.myrepospace.com/lukakotar to your sources [/spoiler]
You can also try Firmware faker (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index?topic=5831.0).  :P But even if you "fake" your iOS version, the app probably won't work.

Also, your post is in the wrong thread...

No, faking the firmware won't make the app work sadly :(

From the Whited00r 6 - FAQ & Troubleshooting - READ BEFORE POSTING! (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7258.0.html)

Why can't I install Apps that Requires iOS 4.3 or upgrade above iOS 4.2.1?

iOS 4.3 and above and apps that requires iOS 4.3 are using binaries CPU instructions sets for newer devices equipped with ARMv7 CPU & faster GPU and only those Apple devices have it:
ARMv7s = iPhone 5, iPad 4
ARMv7  = iPhone 3GS, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S, iPod Touch 3G, 4G & 5G, iPad, iPad 2, iPad 3 & iPad Mini.

Apple Devices with the ARMv6 CPU supported by Whited00r & App Time Machine but not by Apple anymore and dropped slowly & surely by iTunes :

    iPod Touch 1G or 1st Generation  - max iOS 3.1.3
    Original iPhone 1G or 1st Gen - max iOS 3.1.3

    iPod Touch 2G or 2nd Gen - max iOS 4.2.1
    iPhone 3G or 2nd Gen - max iOS 4.2.1 but it's dog-slow, the very limit of what that hardware can take.  Whited00r is based on a tweaked iOS 3.1.3 because it is much more fluid      with plenty of free available RAM to run apps.

Apple could easily require that app developers include iOS backward compatibility to be eligible to iTunes App Store but they decided not to.     Apple makes the Xcode software that developers are using to create apps and removed support for ARMv6 binaries compatibility in their Xcode 4.5 version (see Mac Developer Library - Xcode Release Notes for technical details). Apparently they re-enabled ARMv6 binaries compatibility in the current Xcode 4.5.2 according to this.

Hi guys, Im new in here.

1st I wanted to say thanks WD-Team! For fightig against greedy companies with fruitlogos etc. ;-)
to support the little man!

So here are my story, my questions! I hope you can live with my english!

Prestory:
I never used a smartphone because I was to stingy to invest money ( 300-800 ) for a damn phone.
Then a friend gave me her old blackberry, it already had Whatsapp on it and facebook.
I found out how damn nice Using Whatsapp is.
But the phone was damaged, It switches off from time to time or losing his Network and u cant see it.

However last days I decided to get a better phone and bought an Iphone 3 G from Ebay for a good price.
I tough " Hey cool Iphone, you can use Whatsapp like pro ;-) and this crap" after 1 day I found out no Apps, no support no nothing. IT was like buying a Mercedes and next year there is no oil for the engine, so you can only use it as a Model.
Anyway I was close to throw that phone into the river in my City.
But then like people with near death exp. I saw a white light and a "Whited00r" :-D
After trying to install it with many Problems because of my fruitlogo using friends software Itunes I found some solutions to overcome Error 16xx, 10xx etc. (thx to those ppl 2)

I Installed my WD and "EUREKA" it lives, works and is faster than any other 3 G from friends I know! ( You cant Imagine how they looked at me the other day at work, when I showed the ppl who told me " thats a crap phone u cant use it, you never get it to work" Hell to the F*** naw! I had my pimped Iphone!
WD could also be Well done ^^

However im happy my phone is working well with 1 little little problem.
The almost canonized "Whatsapp-problem"
Same Error like the Rest, I cant receive a code " my version is to old bla bla"




Questions:
> Im not a Pro in Iphone things, so I ask.
Is there any possebility for me to use Whatsapp, because it works on the Blackberry? My friend made me a new account she said (about 1week ago +-/3 days)
(Btw, my BB has no simcard in it, but still receives my Whatsapp messages it seems)


> How about youtube videos whos shows how to rename the Ios 3.xx to an upper version like 4.5 or whatever and than Download WA and rename it back and get it to work. Is that really possible?

> How about installing WA on my Computer and that Programm Teamviewer so I can controll my Pc and Whatsapp-Pc-Version?
I think it will be more cost because my has to run and my download cost will get up because it sending a Video???
In Germany we have a problem with using the word "flaterate" it means u got about 200-1000 MB free.


>Another friend told me there is a programme called "hike" she said it like Whatsapp but just looks different, but I cant get it from the Appstore, requires IOS.4.3
Is there any solution?


> How about putting my Simcard into another phone with higher IOS, tell them to send the code, switcht my card back into my 3 G and enter that received code there? Will it work then?

So I think I bothered you enough.
Sorry for that but like I said, 10 days before I never used an Iphone/Smartphone so Im asking a lot of maybe silly questions.
I still hope some one will do some development work and gets me in this Century ;)
 
Sorry for my english, I hope you can understand me anyway.

Welcome to the Whited00r forum!  8)

Sorry but the answer is no to all your questions above.  :-\  Read the post # of this thread.

The code that the WhatsApp server sends is unique for a unique combination of a given device + a given phone number. Change the device or the phone number and it will not work. Period.

The problem is that WhatsApp will not send a code to gen 1 & 2 Apple devices anymore.

*****

About running apps that requires iOS 4.3 and above, the answer is also no: a must read for all new Whited00r users is the sticky (it means an important thread pinned at the top of the forum list) Whited00r 6 - FAQ & Troubleshooting - READ BEFORE POSTING!

Obviously you guys did NOT read post #1 & 2 in this thread.  :-\

...What is bad is that one cannot buy a legit, paid WhatsApp compatible with lower than iOS 4.3 (currently WhatsApp 2.8.7, requires iPhone 3GS/iPod Touch 3 & newer) in iTunes (say: Thank you Apple & WhatsApp!).  >:(

"...I had WhatsApp on my iPhone but then I restored to WD6, I have the same iPhone 2G, same phone number but i don't have a backup" - If you don't have a backup, you lost access to WhatsApp, sorry!  :-\

You did not follow the step #1  :-\ of the Whited00r Installation Tutorial (http://www.whited00r.com/installation) which BTW should be done before any firmware flashing:

Quote
Backup your Data.

If you have by chance a full backup made with iTunes when your WhatsApp was activated & working then check this for tips about extracting the WhatsApp data: [Tutorial] Backup Apps & Data BEFORE Upgrading iOS Firmware WD 6 3.1.3 4.1 4.2.1 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7731.0.html)

"...Note: my friend has a iPhone 4s with WhatsApp and in his contacts it says i have WhatsApp." - That does not matter if your iPhone 2G is not authorized to access the server-side of WhatsApp.  :(

See how mean & stupid that is? WhatsApp knows that you have an account & knows that your iPhone 2G/phone number is the same but refuses to re-activate WhatsApp on a new firmware installation.  >:(

WhatsApp & Apple/iTunes wants to force you to buy a newer iPhone.  :(

Hey guys, I found out, how to bypass the 3 digit code...

Now I got so far, that Whatsapp starts to add your contacts to the favourites. After some secs WhatsApp gives the message that the device has to be verified (because device has changed)

Well, here's what I did:

- Installed WA 2.5 (from this topic)
- Entered my country code and phone number
- At the 3-digit screen I fetched the net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist file via iFunBox
- Uninstalled WA

- Installed WA 2.8.4
- Entered my country code and phone number
- At the 3-digit screen I fetched the net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist file via iFunBox

- Now I had these two files... I analysed the differences and saw that the entries for CountryCode and the phone number are hashed since 2.8.4
- replaced cc and number in WAs 2.5 file with the hashed values from the 2.8.4 file.
- added
Code: [Select]
<key>AuthState</key>
<integer>3</integer>

to the 2.5 file
- added  JabberId with CC and Number to the 2.5 file
Code: [Select]
<key>OwnJabberID</key>
<string>[email protected]</string>

After that I imported the 2.5 file to my Iphone 3g with WA 2.8.4 installed.

Started Whatsapp and everything looked fine... But after a while the message that WA has to be verified appears :(


Another idea is to activate the phone via an iOS 4.3+ device by
- installing WA 2.8.7
- enter CC and Number
- export file
- import the DeviceToken from the WAs 2.8.4 file from older iOS device into the file from WA 2.8.7
- Start WA on iOS 4.3+ device again and receive the activation code for the pasted DeviceToken.
- Now apply it to WA 2.8.4 on the iOS < 4.3 device ...
- Maybe that will verify your your device on whatsapp servers...

Unfortunately I don't have an iOS 4.3+ device to test it... I just bought my iPhone 3G three days ago and had no experience with iOS before...
I wouldn't have bought it if I knew whatsapp isn't running on it... -.-

I just read something about an UDID Faker in Cydia.. maybe you can fake the identity of your iphone with the udid of a device which is registered with that phone number you want whatsapp for on an older device... So the whatsapp server should think it's the registered device without any changes...

I'm going to try that solution by registering my number with an android device and fake my iphone udid to the udid of my android device ... brb, updating cydia ^^


....... ok, the udid of an android device is too different i can't paste it into the udid faker... u will need another iphone for that...

Post by: Paddieh on May 24, 2013, 09:53:44 PM
you can find the device token in the  net.whatsapp.WhatsApp.plist file:
Code: [Select]
<key>DeviceToken</key>
<string>XXXXX3cb2b975437e2ff951197907abe2a9b6759ba82052624ca7ca980eXXXXX</string>

it is somehow generated by whatsapp using your phone number and your iphones UDID (your device's unique identifier)...

This is correct and tied to a unique phone number/specific device and cannot be used on any other unique phone number/specific device combo:

Can I verify one WhatsApp account to multiple phones, or with multiple phone numbers?

You may want to use WhatsApp with one number, on two phones, or with two phone numbers on a single smartphone. However, your WhatsApp account can only be verified with one number, on one device

Hi, was just wondering if I could get some help here please.

I used to have whatsapp on my iphone 3G and it was absolutely fine, all working. Then at the beginning of the year it all went wrong (as you all well know!). Well, fortunately I had the plists backed up and I still do from when it was working fine (mid december). The problem was, before this solution came out, I was desperate to try to login to whatsapp so I used someone else's phone to check my account was working. So I logged in onto their phone, I then logged out. Now, I can't login on my phone, when I restore the app from the backup, I get to view my chats, but as soon as the system connects to the internet I get the message "Failed to verify your decive This is most likely caused by you upgrading or changing your phone". So I can click verify which brings me to the dreaded 3 digit code thingy...

So, any ideas as to what I can do?? All the best, and it would be very much appreciated if somebody could help me! Will reward if successful in anyway possible within my limited capabilities :D!

Edit: P.S. You guys do realise that technically we could file a court case against whatsapp for this. We bought the apps before and they were working fine, they then 'stole' the app from us. Therefore they are in the wrong and should compensate in some way surely??? Just a thought, would be quite funny if we did bring them to court...especially if we were successful :D!

I think that is a good idea because as you said we bought the app before and know they stole it from us, they know who we are because the pressure we put on them, so they might do something ;D. its good to try idea at least ::).

Do you sue the grocery store when your milk runs out? ;)  You are buying a license for the app, with no guarantee that it will always be supported. I'm sure iTunes has lots of pages of legal mumbo-jumo that gets them out of that.  (Also, iTunes forces apps to not work with 3.1.3 -4.2.1 anymore if they want them updated.).

It's got nothing to do with the money, it doesn't matter whether it cost 50p or 50,000. It's the concept, it is technically a scam...both apple and whatsapp are guilty. But Apple could easily wriggle out of it. Whatsapp can't deny the fact they took an app away from you. Also, I'm pretty sure there's a thing on whatsapp that says payment info, and it says that you have whatsapp for life there?

When we bought our apps we did not rent them, we bought them to keep.

Ah well, rant over,  I'm not gonna get anywhere with this am I lol!!!

All the best :).

P.S. Is there anyway I could cure my whatsapp from my problem description in my last post or am I never gonna be able to have whatsapp on my iPhone 3G again? Cheers for the help :).

Whatsapp is being forced to drop support, whether it be due to security holes they patch up because of the code system/outdated apps, or API changes (which gives new users better features).  They literally cannot provide a new version of Whatsapp for our devices, because iTunes would not accept it, and also because they cannot distribute it outside of iTunes. 

Think of the TV stations in the U.S, they stopped transmitting over the radio waves and switched to digital. You were made to either buy a box to get the new features of digital, or else get just static ;)  The stations didn't take away the TV value from you, they had to change their services because of the updated technology. 

As for your problem, unless you were able to sign out of the other device and re-sign in on your device, you are up the creek :(  (which you can't sign back in either, because it asks for the code :/ )

That's too bad because you killed WhatsApp for your iPhone 3G by activating it on an other phone as WhatsApp will not activate it anymore on your iPhone 3G.  :'(

Nothing you can do besides contributing to our WhatsApp pressure campaign as described in the first post of this thread and/or moving on to an other free compatible app like Viber or others found in App Time Machine.

iTunes Not Accepting Apps Compatible With iOS 4.2.1 or older?

Whatsapp is being forced to drop support, whether it be due to security holes they patch up because of the code system/outdated apps, or API changes (which gives new users better features).  They literally cannot provide a new version of Whatsapp for our devices, because iTunes would not accept it, and also because they cannot distribute it outside of iTunes...

"Whatsapp is being forced to drop support..." - That is not true because users who have activated WhatsApp on their unique device/phone number combo and have a backup can install it on their iPhone 3G & it does work proof that WhatsApp's server-side still works w/ old version. They broke on purpose sending the 3 digit activation for both existing accounts & new ones.

OK, they can decide that they will not activate new accounts in older versions of WhatsApp because they want to sell new ones and make money but why block users with existing accounts that used the app on a given device with exactly the same phone number like Music Guy123's example above? That is just mean IMO.  >:(

"...They literally cannot provide a new version of Whatsapp for our devices, because iTunes would not accept it..." - I don't believe that because the iOS apps developer's Xcode supports again older devices.

Can you provide a link & a quote where Apple says that if an app supports iOS 4.2.1 or lower it will be rejected by iTunes?  :o

One thing is for sure: when you connect your device to iTunes and go to their App Store, they know your iOS version & device model number and could easily filter the results to show you only apps compatible with your iOS & device model and also show you older compatible versions of Skype, WhatsApp, Pandora, etc, etc but they don't care about the millions of generation 1 & 2 iPhone's & iPod Touch's out there.

Not rejected, but if they want to still provide the latest features and support the latest firmware, they can't support older ones because the latest xcode can't compile for armv6.

Again, it comes back down to the security patches, and updates to different API online to provide a better user experience.  Contrary to popular belief, it is actually rather difficult to keep older versions of code online playing nicely with newer code.  Especially when that code has security holes in it.

Cheers guys, some very interesting stuff there! I would give you lot positive internets but unfortunately I cannot see how to do so lol! So if someone could enlighten me, I would do so!

Sad to hear I can no longer activate my whatsapp :(, I guess there is nothing I can do, ah well, life moves on :)! I'll start using it in bluestacks, not ideal, but it's the best I can do!

@bcooperizcool: gd point about the tv thing, that's a good analogy, at least though in britain they started selling set top boxes which meant you could still use your old TV, they weren't very much either...

I see what you mean as to regards with whatsapp not allowing people to use older versions for security problems, but tbh, it's not that bad, there haven't been any major issues with our version yet, I can see the fact maybe in the future it will be physically impossible to use this version for whatever reason, but it should be fine for now. Also, there should be nothing wrong with registering on an older version, but I can understand if they don't want to allow it. However, in my case, where I was actually already registered etc, like Pierre says, I think it is just mean, I wonder what will happen if I rang them??

As for the Xcode thingy, would we need the entire source code of the application to compile it for armv6? because if we say got the files from the latest whatsapp version, could we then compile it for armv6? I'm afraid my programming knowledge is rather limited, although I'd love to learn!

Also, just a thought, have a look at this, I know it's got nothing to do with iphones etc, but it could be a start...!

https://launchpad.net/whosthere

and a vid of the guy demonstrating it:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cSrTyv1hx8c&t=7m5s

Oh well, sorry for bringing this wildly off topic, I'm just trying to see if we can find a solution!! Chances are it looks like that answer is no! I think it's time to buy a nexus 7 for me, I've given up with apple, they're getting ridiculous! Now just to wait for the nexus 7 update to be released...!

Cheers for all the help chaps, much appreciated, all the best.

P.S. I would love to help whited00r, especially as a dev, unfortunately I have very minimal programming experience, I plan on starting to teach myself this summer, do you guys have any suggestions for learning Obj C? Or what to learn first? I know it'll be a couple of years probably before I'm proficient enough to help out at whited00r though!

@MusicGuy123 first of all i want to thank you in all of our names for the time spent on creating whosthere and sharing it with us. In my opinion it is a start and i think we should get together and try to port it for iOS ( armv6 ) .
My question is if we can. As i've seen in the code, this will be a hard task but my knowledge in programming (lil' basic) and with the help of you guys we can sort this thing out. Actually this could be a nice substitute to whatsapp and be very versatile.

I've researched a bit , and apparently the process of all applications that are released for iOS, are entering a submission program , more exactly when testing an app, you have to meet all the standards in order to publish it in the market section. Regarding this problem ( whatsapp) one of the most important condition is to be able to run the app and to be realeased officially is to be able to run it on firmwares that are NOT older than 2 years. in this case. 3.1.3 , 4.2.1 , etc.. This is actually a strategy to oblige the users to buy newer phones and therefore the firmwares to be compatible with all the applications.

Long story short, i want to help you to create the iOS version for whosthere, and i'm all eyes and ears for possible questions or problems.

thanks in advance.

Amoralico, Antonio Morales, has developed a Whatsapp client for WebOs.  WebOs community faces problems similar to people on this forum, lake of development or support from OS, because HP has abandoned it.  Surely he knows all about how registration and authentication is handled on Whatsapp servers. If a Whatsapp client can be succesfully developed for WebOs, then why not for older iOS devices?

Please have a look at this thread:

...If a Whatsapp client can be succesfully developed for WebOs, then why not for older iOS devices?...

You are comparing orange to Apple.   :)

webOS based on a Linux kernel is now an open source development project sponsored by HP. BTW it is now called Open webOS (http://www.openwebosproject.org/).

The WhatsApp servers are using different authorization methods specific to each different OS: Android, iOS, webOS, Windows Phone, BlackBerry, etc. WhatsApp FAQ: Is my device supported? (http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/general/20951556)

You did not read the Whited00r 6 FAQ (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7258.0.html) linked above about ARMv6 vs. ARMv7 CPU instructions sets I presume.  ;)

From http://theiphonewiki.com/wiki/ARMv7

Quote
ARMv7 is the processor instruction set used starting with the S5L8920 in the iPhone 3GS and in all subsequent devices. Processors that support ARMv7 instructions are backward compatible with ARMv6 instructions, but attempting to run binaries compiled for ARMv7 on older, ARMv6 processors will result in the error: "Bad CPU type in executable".

The WhatsApp authorization code generation servers for iOS are now using instructions sets that ARMv6 CPU's, iOS 4.2.1 and below and WhatsApp v2.8.4 app and below cannot understand.

WhatsApp decided that they will not send anymore new authorization codes to devices with ARMv6 CPU: iPhone 2G, iPhone 3G, iPod Touch 1G and iPod Touch 2G.

If you want more technical info about Apple's deprecation policy of the ARMv6 CPU against owners of gen 1 & 2 devices: Softly Killing iPhone 3G (http://www.cocoanetics.com/2012/08/softly-killing-iphone-3g/)

You can always try to hack the WhatsApp servers and try to force them to speak the ARMv6 language. Good luck with that and don't be surprised if the FBI or Interpol knocks on your door eventually.  :o

I have an iphone 4 running ios 6.1.2, which has its home button broken (it was replaced and it got borked again). My telco gave me a galaxy S3 in replacement (and blocked the iphone4 from being used in this county's celphone providerS), becasue iphones can no longer be imported and sold here in Argentina.

A friend has an ipod touch 3g 8gb (which is really an ipod touch 2g MC model) with ios4.2.1

Im REALLY sad becasue we took months to get into jailbreaking it and installing whatsapp, and now we can install 2.8.4 but we can't activate it (but if we had done this before, all would be fine...)

I spent the night reading and experimenting, until i came to know why we could not install anything past 2.8.4

Then i decided to activate whatsapp on the i4, and try to copy files and whatnot to the ipod touch, to see if it could be activated somehow. I used the same phone number, and even faked the UDID on the ipod touch to be the same as in the iphone. (also changed ios version to 6.1.2, and replaced whatsapp version in a file inside whatsapp.ipa to 2.8.7)

I can open whatsapp, but ass soon as it connects to the servers, it tells me that activation is wrong, most surely because i swapped devices. Reactivating is not posible becasue 2.8.4 uses a 3 digit activation code, instead of the new 6 digit one.

Would it be imposible for someone who can program/alter iOS software to modify whatsapp.ipa (version 2.8.4) to present iself as 2.8.7 AND to be able to accept a 6 digit code ?

If not, the only hope i see is to get whatsapp to release a 2.8.4 version that can be activated :(

ps: i found no way of transplanting my iphone4 "identity" to the ipod touch, is there one ?

Nope, you are as far as anyone else has gotten pretty much.

@rcocchiararo

That is what I tried to do once via a tweak, I didn't get far, although I may take another stab at it after I'm done with other projects.   It was difficult to get it to accept newer codes, or even present itself as a new version of the app :/  Sadly, we don't have the source code to anything so that makes it much more difficult, because we need the authentication ability, as well as the making it take the different codes and present itself as a newer version of the app :(

What you tried does not work as reported several times in this thread.

"...2.8.4 uses a 3 digit activation code, instead of the new 6 digit one... - that's one major problem but the other one that is not fixable is that if the WhatsApp severs are speaking in a language that only iOS 4.3 and newer can understand when activating their app on a new unique iOS device/phone number combo then your old device will never be able to understand it as explained 2 posts above yours: Re: webOS vs. iOS & WhatsApp (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.msg82756.html#msg82756)

(http://vaiofseries.com/whited00r/WhatsApp_2.8.4_vs_2.8.7_Digit_Activation_Code_PierreP.png)

On the left side a screen capture of the old WhatsApp v2.8.4 for iOS 3.1 and above is not activated anymore by the WhatsApp servers & required a 3 digit activation code unique to a given device/phone number combo sent by their servers. On the right side: the newer WhatsApp v2.8.7 requires iOS 4.3 & above and uses a more secure 6 digit code.

WhatsApp is not an ordinary app that one could crack once & use offline on it's device for ever, it communicates constantly with the WhatsApp servers as you use it to send/receive, get notified, modify your profile, etc.

For WhatsApp security is of paramount importance as they do not want hackers to be able to read or access the accounts of other users so good luck trying to fake it to get access to an account.  ::)

For an example of their security steps see this WhatsApp FAQ - How can I change my WhatsApp phone number? (http://www.whatsapp.com/faq/general/20971798)

Quote
...1- If you are permanently changing phone numbers, you can delete your WhatsApp account and then verify your new number...

2- If you are planning on using your old number in the future, or you do not wish to delete your account, you can delete and reinstall WhatsApp.... Once reinstalled, you can verify your new phone number...

What you tried does not work as reported several times in this thread.

"...2.8.4 uses a 3 digit activation code, instead of the new 6 digit one... - that's one major problem but the other one that is not fixable is that if the WhatsApp severs are speaking in a language that only iOS 4.3 and newer can understand when activating their app on a new unique iOS device/phone number combo then your old device will never be able to understand it as explained 2 posts above yours: Re: webOS vs. iOS & WhatsApp (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.msg82756.html#msg82756)

I spent 1 day (litterally speaking, it was a non working day that i spent @home :P), and its not even MY device :P

The worst part is that if we had gotten toghether earlier in the year, we could have jailbroken that ipod, installed 2.8.4 and authenticate with whatsapp (heck, it could have been done even during last year, we just lacked the time :P)

Nah, the worst case is users who had activated WhatsApp Messenger v2.8.4 previously on a given iPhone 3G with a given phone number but did not make a WhatsApp + your data backup or a full backup with iTunes and are now prevented from activating their WhatsApp again after flashing the iOS firmware even if it is exactly the same device/phone number combo. That is just mean IMO.  :'(

Hence the importance of this very first step before flashing any firmware: [Tutorial] Backup Apps & Data BEFORE Upgrading iOS Firmware WD 6 3.1.3 4.1 4.2.1 (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7731.0.html) It includes tips about how to extract app data or SMS, etc from the full iTunes backup.

Hey all,

I have iPhone 3G with currently jailbreaked 4.2.1 and whatsapp on v. 2.8.4 is running fine on it. Now I'd liked to put whited00r on it, so that it would run smoother. Does  the app + your data backup thing work? Do you have to activate again?
Whatsapp is registered on my german mobile number, which SIM I Lost. I am currently using a spanish SIM card. Would that be a problem?

Thanks!

Welcome to the Whited00r forum!  8)

Thank you for providing the essential information.

1- Make a full iTunes backup of your device so if you have any problems, you could go back to the current iOS 4.2.1 state by using Restore in iTunes.

2- Don't forget to transfer purchases from the iPhone to the iTunes library (see backup tutorial).

3- Yes, with an app + your data backup as described in the backup tutorial linked above (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7731.0.html) it should work. And it should not ask you to re-activate WhatsApp which is not possible anymore on iOS below 4.3 as described above. You can also use iTools to backup photos, media, SMS, call log & contacts.

After flashing the firmware, disconnect the iPhone from the computer while it is booting for the first time. Then turn the iPhone off after it finished booting and turn back on after waiting 5 seconds. Do that a second time so all is settled. Connect to iTunes and Set up as new iPhone. Then use iTools to install the backed up WhatsApp version with the blue Doc badge.

(http://vaiofseries.com/whited00r/iTunes_Setup_a_New_Phone_PierreP.JPG)

4- If your iPhone 3G is factory unlocked then install the Whited00r 6 Normal version. If not, use the Unlock version.

Questions:

Q1- You wrote that you are currently using a Spanish SIM card. Is the phone number the exact same as the German SIM with which you activated WhatsApp on that iPhone 3G?

Q2- If not the same number then are you saying you activated WhatsApp with a phone number then changed SIM and phone number and WhatsApp did not ask you to re-activate by sending you a new 3 digit activation code?  :o

Post by: Kimon on June 29, 2013, 02:20:53 PM
Well thank you very very much for this detailed reply. I will try that!   8)

To the questions: No the numbers are of course not the same. I setup my phone with my german number and when I came to spain, I changed the SIMs. When I started Whatsapp, they told me that they detected a different number and if I want to use that number for whatsapp now. I clicked 'no' and now I have a spanish number inside, but whatsapp is still running on my german number. Its a bit long ago, but I think, there was no reactivation necessary!

Right now my only worries are, that whatsapp wants to reactivate, especially if I dont have my german number inside. But I will try the app + your data thing.

I clicked 'no' and now I have a spanish number inside, but whatsapp is still running on my german number. Its a bit long ago...

That's weird. I am guessing this, but since WhatsApp is kicking out gradually all iPhone's running iOS 4.2.1 or older from their servers system, I presume that the WhatsApp servers would block such a phone number change now on WhatsApp v2.8.4.  :o

In fact users reported in this thread that if you uninstall/reinstall WhatsApp v2.8.4, you can never get back in their system and your account because they will not send a 3 digit activation code necessary with every new WhatsApp app installation so don't make any changes to the iPhone specific device/given phone number combo to be on the safe side if you want to keep on using WhatsApp on gen 1 & 2 iPhone's.

But a WhatsApp app + it's data backup should bring you back exactly to it's current state anyway w/o WhatsApp asking you any questions if you keep on using the same Spanish SIM phone number and the same iPhone 3G.

It's the same for Facebook, Skype or a game. If you are at level 5 in that game and do an app + it's data backup and install it after flashing an iOS firmware then when you run that app for the first time you should start directly at the level you were: 5 in this example and all the High Scores achieved or multiples profiles created should be there too.

Are you still paying the cellular provider for the German number to keep it activated?

In Costa Rica for the prepaid Kolbi brand SIM's if you do not charge it with at least $0.20 every 3 months, they cancel the number and may give it to a new customer even if it has still some unused credits in it. I know that because I kept an extra prepaid SIM number beside my regular postpaid SIM number to run tests for Whited00r on my second iPhone 3G and they cancelled it w/o warning me via SMS or email even if I had $5 worth of credit on it.  :-\

This is not the right section for this to begin with, and you also should have posted on the thread where you saw it was "working" ;)  I moved it to the right forum section, and am locking this topic (so please move to the main thread for this)

[50% Solved] WhatsApp WD6 Problem - Partially Working Update! (http://www.whited00r.com/forum/index.php/topic,7068.0.html)

As stated in the first post of that thread, and all throughout by people who didn't read the first post for who knows why, it is working, but only if you meet certain criteria.  You must have had it working before, and must have made a backup of it when it was working and saved that backup.  If you didn't do that, or had that, then you cannot get it to work.  The whited00r team is not working on this, as this is only one application out of hundreds that cut off older versions server side.  We simply do not have the manpower or resources to work on it.  If (or when) a solution is found, it will be posted in the thread linked above. :)  Do not ask for progress, because it will be posted as soon as there is any. ;)

No to your request because:

1- Read post #1 in this thread.  ::)

2- Waste of time.  :-\

3- The only reason it would work for you is that you had already registered that specific phone number/device combo with WhatsApp and that info was already cached in your device.

It is admittedly interesting that you have it working without restoring app data for whatsapp, were you previously registered at all, even on the SIM number on a different phone?

Apple is moving with the times ;) Older hardware never gets the nice things, it really is a lot of work to provide support for legacy hardware.  Older computers can't run newer things either, so what do people do?

Guys I hope i find a solution for bypass activation on Whatsapp 2.8.4 using an old backup that i made on my old android phone.
From the data backup of whatsapp android version i can retrive old 3 digit code, my phone number, my token number, and other information that i cant put in the net.whtasapp.xxxxx file. The problem is only one... I need a screen shot of this file for make an exact copy of the file, after the activation, using the hex editor. Can anyone that have:
1. Whatsapp Activated
2. Iphone with 4.2.1 jailbroken.
3. iFunBox
Help me?

You need only open iFunBox, plug in your iphone, go to iFunBox Classic, clik on the left side under user application, click on whatsapp, click on the directory in the tree and you can find the file. Open it with a text editor like note++, cover your personal information and make a screen shot of all the text. Send me a PM on this site with a link to dropbox or google drive or skydrive or what you want and i use the image for make my new file.

Hi iNadav1,

I did it yesterday, not all version whatsapp can't receive the 3 digit only 2.5.11 as I mentioned. you need to wait after your number inserted.

thanks

Hi,

I followed the same procedure with 2.5.11 and got to the same point - waiting for network on whatsapp page. It seems that the registration with phone number never took place, probably because I used the code found in the file on iFunBox. Wonder if there is any chance that this approach could work?

Hello,
i guess im close to find out a solution
when i change the "net.whatsapp.WhatsApp" File that you can find it here "Library\Preferences" using iFile in your iPhone or iTools on your pc.

i replace that file with an other one of my whatsapp on iPhone 4 (iOs 6.1.3)  and i got this


When i open the two files using a text editor, the one of Whatsapp 2.8.4 is a hex files and the last version on my iPhone 4 is a text  file, could we compare those files ?

Welcome to the forums :)

If someone ever does (unlikely), it would be updated on the first post of this thread, so everyone can see it right away and the title of the thread will change as well to signify it has been solved :)

No work is being done by the whited00r team on this, and even if we did do work, it likely would get shut down by whatsapp themselves because they are making anyone who touches stuff relating to whatsapp stop (cydia tweaks modifying it, or providing quick reply, third party API for it, etc).

Thanks for the answer, i think i found a solution for the problem, but is for that we need to dissamble the whatsapp(with IDA) and trade the values for  the whatsapp dont compare the code received from server but to always compare with our preseted code which will make the validation go to the sucess step and we will be able to activate whatsapp.
The only thing is that this process can't be automated. I did not finished the tests(because i'm learning it too so i don't have much habilities) so i cant guarantee nothing but at least in theory with works.
Is there anyone here with some habilities with IDA and knowledge of ARM to also try that?

The thing is, even disassembling the code won't glean much information that is useful.  The API on the actual app itself needs to be modified to respond and receive the newer API the application uses for activation.  That is more than just using IDA to see what goes on (I don't know how to use it mind you, and wouldn't understand all it spewed out), you also have to find the correct API, and also anything that touches the API key.  Also need to modify anything that it uses to doublecheck the activation anywhere else in code :(  Takes a lot to reverse engineer all that, and then try and make it all work when you cannot actually see the source code of the application.

The whited00r team does not have the time or manpower to do this for apps sadly :(

Don't know if this was posted anywhere yet ... at least couldnt find it...
For the ones that at least want to use whatsapp to stay in touch with friends etc... there is a way to do it but NOT on your phone.
After days and days of searching  on how to get whatapp working again since i had to do a restore on phone(and yes.. immediatly used whitd00r 7 on it ;) ) , i was in this 50% NOT solved group.
Tried all the things i could find on forums here... watched zillions of "100 % working"  youtube vids etc etc .

I then found a solution to at least run latest whatapp on PC .. using BlueStack.(android simulator) wich has access to google's playstore.
I installed whatsapp and entered phone number and clicked to get the code by Sms/txt.
That does NOT work, so i did the "call me"  option .. and within 1 minute i had a call from their auto messenger server... providing me a 6 digit number to activate.
I did... and tadaaaaaaaaa... am back online in whatapp land.

After that i did try to see what happend on phone after installing whatapp again, at 1st looked ok .. as i immediatly got to preferences.... but to be disappointed after 1 minute... "verificaton of device failed"  ... but still runs on Bluestack :)

Maybe this is in the wrong place on forums(if so i'm sorry) ... but thought at least some "addicted"  appers could at least have whatapp running on a PC.

Welcome to the forums :)

Thank you for posting this and the mini-tutorial of how you got a "workaround" working :)
I think currently, that is the only official way to do that as well, because WhatsApp is shutting down third party applications/API for them, so the other methods that used to work for this no longer do.  This method will work for the foreseeable future because it uses an actual android device/app of sorts to run it.

I think the bluestacks thing was posted ages ago, although not relating to whatsapp but more about if we could use it on iOS to run android apps (that was a no sadly ;( )

Ya i also knew about bluestacks but you cannot carry your pc everywhere you go :|
@bruan : Can we run symbian on ios (side by side) same like the idroid workaround (posted on the forum ) we can use symbian because it uses less ram and also supports whatsapp....

We can't really run anything alongside iOS, especially not on the first and second generation devices :(

Sadly Whatsapp cannot work on any iOS version below 4.3, I know it's depressing  ::) , but there is no other way.... I contacted Whatsapp support over 9,000 times, and it wasn't much of a "support". So I guess we have to give up on Whatsapp, it's a lost cause. Anyways why don't you use Viber? I mean it's not bad, and it's still used by a lot of people. Anyways if you feel like trying anything go ahead and get Bootlace (Android on iPhone), and then install the .apk of Whatsapp, I haven't tried that yet, but I think it might work. Good luck. ;)
