  • Frank

    nice method but the app is not supported once installed on Itouch. All software is up to date. Any other suggestions?

    • TheNerdMag

      Connect the iPhone to your computer and open iFunBox. Select ‘iFunBox Classic’ and on left side click on ‘User Applications’ under the iPhone. From the list of applications select WhatsApp. Once you see all the files under WhatsApp, select both ‘Documents’ and ‘Library’ folder. Now click on ‘Copy To PC’ and save these selected folders on Desktop.

      Disconnect the iPhone and connect your iPod/iPad. Again select ‘iFunBox Classic’ and on left side click on ‘User Applications’ under the iPhone. From the list of applications select WhatsApp. Now copy the two folders ‘Documents’ and ‘Library’ present on Desktop and paste it into the WhatsApp folder as shown below. Once the folders are successfully copied into iFunBox, disconnect your iPod/iPad. WhatsApp would be activated and ready to use.

    The question is not if it installs, it is if it runs. Whatsapp will quit saying “device not compatible”

      • Pranav

        I don’t have a iphone then what should i do?

        • Igon Cang

          Get one.

        • Nastassja Gounden

          You don’t need one!

          • Marco

            so what do i have to do if i haven’t got an iphone?

          • sandifuckedyou UP

            just go buy the app or download for free IDIOTS

          • varun

            please tell me how did you do that its saying device is not supported please

          • Zaco

            Then how do we do it?

        • Hacke

          1)jailbreak your ipod(just install p0sixspwn program, make sure your software is update 6.0+) and launch cydia, look up for “whatspad” it should be under BigBoss files and its free and install it. It should work perfectly.
          2)Borrow iphone form friend, uninstall his whatsapp, install new whatsapp with your number than sync the app to your ipod via itunes. After that uninstall the whatsapp app from the iphone and reinstall it with your friend number.

      • Amit

        I dont have an iphone…and if i use my friends iphone to copy file, and as soon as he uses his own profile again, mine(which i installed in ipod) stops working saying verification failed and hence device not compatible!

        • shiv

          first uninstall ur friend’s ‘whatsapp’ and install a fresh ‘whatsapp’.Then register ur mobile no. in it. Now with ‘ifunbox classic’ under ‘user applications’ tab open ‘whatsapp’ n copy ‘Documents’ and ‘Library’ folders from it to desktop.Disconnect the iphone and uninstall the whatsapp from that.
          Now copy both folders through ‘ifunbox classic’ from desktop to ipad/ipod’s ‘whatsapp’ under ‘user applications’ tab.

      • Maggie

        how do you copy them from your desktop to the iFunBox?

      • Getto

        Could not get it to work. Does it work with IOS7?
        I used my iPhone 5 using Whatsapp perfectly

        • Eugen

          On iOS7 iT does not work anymore. After copying the Documents and Library folder from the PC to the iPad the App won’t run. It gives a black screen and quits.. No error message or nothing…

          • Eugen

            Update! Got iT to work! Problem was the Copy from PC option. This function does not copy entire directories with sub-folders. Instead of the Copy from PC button, select the 2 directories with Ctrl-A and Ctrl-C. Click with the mouse in the WhatsApp directory of the iPad and press Ctrl-C. This actually copies all files…

            Safely remove device and presto! WhatsApp works on the iPad with iOS 7

          • h

            Just to clarify, is this after you have already copied the Documents and Library folder from your iphone to your desktop? Then, after you have plugged in your ipad again, you simply copied the two folders on your desktop and pasted into the WhatsApp directory on the iPad? I’m still having trouble with this step – if you could provide more details on your fix, that’d be a great help. Thanks in advance!

  • Ateeb kazmi

  • Davie

    You need an iPhone 4 or above , if whatsapp is already installed on the iPhone delete the app not the account and get a new copy install it and when it asks for a number put in a different active number not the iPhone’s actual number , I use a iPad one wifi 3G so I used the number of the iPad sim , ask it to send a message not to call , get your pin and enter it , install whatsapp back on the iPhone with its original number

  • SulyShop

    It works perfectly fine using jailbreak cydia

    • Iamsboniso

      how do u do it? i have ipad mini 3g wifi? please help

  • Jo Spencer

  • cdcghkhsdbch

    saying not supported

  • http://tabletsmanuals.com/ ipad tutorial

    Was it contains some great features in our android phones? I was planning to install this app but I guess it is favorable for me to listen first all the feedback regarding this app because it might give an error in my phone.

  • Gabriel Alberto Fernández Plot

    No digo que sea una mentira, pero hay un problema con esto, quizá la confusión es mía, sin embargo tanto en el iPad /Air/Mini/2 (en ninguno de los tres) pude instalar el WhatsApp, al abrir el WhatsApp me salta una ventana con el titulo “Error” diciendo “Sorry, your device is currently not supported” (Disculpe, su dispositivo no es actualmente compatible). Desde ya muchas gracias.

  • http://tabletsmanuals.com/ ipad guide

    It looks difficult guides. I guess it would be better if we can find
    another sources of information which will have to use to have this kind
    of applications, for it really needs proper guides before we can have
    this app.

  • Ramzan

    thank u so much, IT WORKS PERFECTLY ON MY iPAD

    as i clicked on verify, the message came again that your device is not supported

  • coco

    I have no iphone. How can I do this without an iphone?

  • Furusinuss

    It looks to be good kind of tips you have posted here but I don’t think this will be more applicable to all iPad users. It because the ideal thing is for jailbreaking of an iPAd will definitely be more reliable method.

  • Aa

    its not allowing me to drop the file on iPhone configuration Utility. its 3.6.2

    • CG

      This site helped me. I was able to do it, but the problem is it just “transferred” my WhatsApp account from my iPhone to my iPod Touch 5, since I used the same telephone number. Perhaps this is why ppl are having trouble – somehow their account reactivates in their iPhone, which then renders the account you want to activate on the Touch (or other device) inoperable. Hence, the message ppl keep getting. Is there a way to create a completely different account on the Touch that uses another way to recognize the device and be able to send/receive messages (like email for iMessage) or “fake” numbers to avoid using the same number from your iPhone? Thanks in advance!

  • Architz
