      Hi Tito,
      Sorry for the trouble caused.
      You need to delete Document and library folders in your iPad first. then import the 2 folders exported from iPhone earlier to your iPad. I tried, so I can write this tutorial.
      Thank you for your attention.

      Dear Atul Unnikrishnan,

      Sorry for the inconvenience caused.

      To bypass the error and activating the application successfully, you need an iPhone to complete the process so borrow somebody’s iPhone.

      Please try starting from Step 5, export Documents and Library folder of the iPhone which contain the registration data.

      Then replace the 2 folders in your iPad.

  11. I had this working fine – but then my iPad mini was stolen :( When I know do this, it automatically installs version 2.11.11 on the phone (or 2.11.12, as of last night). And this does not work.

    I understand that 2.11.8 works – but I can’t get that to run on the iphone, since it will automatically download the latest version. I have the 2.11.8 ipa-file, though. Is it possible to take the folders “library” and “documents” from the 2.11.12 installation, use the 2.11.8 ipa-file to install it on the ipad and then copy the folders? Will the ipad mind the version difference? If not possible, how on earth do I install 2.11.8 on the iPhone?

    Help is greatly appreciated!

    • amrttri says:

      hey, Got your problem. let me explain a bit.
      Every ipa file can either be associated with the apple iD or not. if its associated with an apple id you know, you can have your prob solved.But in case you have an ipa file that is free with any apple ID,can only be installed on your iDevices using JAILBREAK.
      In my way, the solution would be that borrow your friend’s iphone and get the ipa file on your laptop using iFunbox.
      In case you want to jailbreak here is the download link of whatsapp. https://kickass.to/whatsapp-v-2-8-3-iphone-ipod-touch-zfile-working-for-all-ios-ipa-t6615962.html

      • Hi amrttri, thanks for your reply. I think I understand now.

        So the only issue I have is how go get a 2.11.8 ipa-file with my own apple ID onto my computer and then onto my phone, right? Is there any way to trick iTunes into downloading an older ipa-file with my apple id? Or can I add my apple ID to an existing, “empty” ipa-file?

        Thanks!

      • amrttri says:

        Yeah you get it right, you have to have an ipa file authorized by the known apple id and password. Hmm, to be honest i dont know that much about itunes/apple that i can teach you to trick them.
        Thought: running whatsapp in ipad/ipod becomes more complicated by that version thing. Already it was an headach to get an iphone and do all this.

  12. Editors, you might want to mention in the title that this does not work anymore. Unless you’ve got an old (legit) 2.11.8 ipa file somewhere, there is currently no way to install whatsapp on the ipad. Both 2.11.11 and 2.11.12 don’t work, and there’s users all over trying to find a solution.

    I guess that would be worth mentioning.

    I have done some experimentation and below are my findings that could help others succeed:
    – Donor iPhone should be at the same iOS version as the iPad/iPod, mine worked with both at iOS 8.0.2, it didn’t work with iPhone at 7.1.2 and iPad at 8.0.2
    – Currently latest Whatsapp version 2.11.12 will fail.
    – I didn’t have access to my own Whatsapp v2.11.8, but found v2.11.7 and it worked well

      Hi ahmad, please clarify these things-

      1. Are you saying that it has something to do with ios version too and you are so sure about it??
      2. version v2.11.8 is the latest version that can work, yes??
      3. Do u have a v2.11.7 copy that you can share with us. ( actually it is more of a request, coz the only concern people have now is how to get older versions.)

        Dear amrttri.

        My iPad is at iOS 8.0.2, the procedure didn’t work when the donor iPhone was at iOS 7.1.2, i upgraded the iPhone to iOS 8.0.2 and then the procedure worked.

        With regards to Whatsapp IPA, each IPA is signed with an Apple ID, so if I share my Whatsapp it will still not work because you will need my Apple ID password to Authorize on your iPhone and iPad. On my computer i couldn’t find Whatsapp 2.11.8, only 2.11.7 which worked well for sometime but then it crashed due to one chat thread, I think these are not ready for iOS 8

        The other alternative, is to wait for a Jailbreak and then use WhatsPAD from Cydia, that will allow any Whatsapp version to work.

  21. Hello,

    All the steps ran very smoothly for me…up until the seventh step. I plug the iphone in and open Synchios, but then when I click on the little eye icon on the whatsapp spot, the entire system or program freezes. I tried this in different wifi connections, after restarting my computer, AND with plugging in my ipod and trying it on that one, as well as other apps. Should I uninstall the program and reinstall it?
    Is it my computer or is there a reason it’s freezing like this?

        the reason whatsapp is crashing is because of an ios 8 bug (ff, fl, fi bug to be precise)
        u can search about that bug on the internet.
        so just follow the steps above and it will definitely work and if you want the whatsapp file just send me your emal id and il send it to you.

    I would like to let you know that you can now install latest Whatsapp 2.11.12 on iPad with iOS 8 or iOS8.1.

    For the above procedure to work you will need to Jailbreak your iPad, and install Whatspad from Cydia store, then continue to install Whatsapp using Synios or iFunbox (my favourite). Whatspad will make Whatsapp think the device is an iPhone.

    I have had this setup working on my iPad with iOS7 for a long time, and then when the jailbreak became available for iOS8, i upgraded and jailbroke it and reinstalled Whatsapp again, and its working well without any crashes.
