lastest official whatsapp from playstore works just fine. it just showed device not supported when u open it directly, but if u create a shortcut or widget of any whatsapp contact or group on homescreen then u can open and use it from there. or open it from fastlane history.

Default Whatsapp not working ( Probable resolution)

there seems to be some issue with build.prop for which the official updated whatsapp and fb app does not work.

I found that Baidu cloud rom beta 49, both whatsapp and fb works out of the box, no mod required.

however, stock rom and all other custom rom does not support the official apps.

the problem seems to be within the given part of build.prop file
HTML Code:
# begin build properties
# autogenerated by buildinfo.sh
.....
.....
# end build properties

If we replace this whole part with a build.probp of a rom which already supports ( Eg: Baidu Beta 49 build.prop) whatsapp and fb...it seems to be working.


Hit thanks if I helped you

Updated versions of Whatsapp show an error message when opened directly. But Whatsapp is still accessible in Nokia X range devices. You may use any of these possible solutions.
1. You may open Whatsapp by accessing fastlane history like mdfzhi directed. This will open the conversations directly.
2. Whatsapp+ works just fine if you follow the below steps.
-> Install Whatsapp
-> Open it through fastlane history and send some whatsapp messages to friends
-> And it is better if u make a message backup
-> Uninstall Whatsapp
-> Install Whatsapp+
3. Changing the build.prop file might fix the problem but it might lead to unwanted issues later. Inorder to change the build.prop you would have to root your phone, which voids warranty. If you are willing to take the risk, it is better advised that you install a custom rom rather than trying to just change the build.prop file.

Considering your problem, I would recommend using the 2nd method by installing whatsapp plus. This might solve your problem.
