Angry [GUIDE] whatsapp on tablet s [easy step by step tutorial]

Anyone intertested in installing whatsapp on your tablet s?
- need root and rooted android phone

I know this method from my asus transformer but it works here also now we have root.

- root your phone
- install whatsapp on your phone
- install TB (titanium back up) on your phone
- with TB make a back up of whatsapp
- open file manager on your phone and look for TB folder
- take the 3 files with the whatsapp name in them and move these to your tablet s

- root your tablet
- install TB on your tablet
- open TB on your tablet
- in file manager go to TB folder
- move the 3 whatsapp files taken from the phone and place them in the TB folder
- open TB and "restore" your whatsapp

You now have whatsapp on your tablet s using the phone number of you mobile phone

Whatsapp wont like it when you have 2 sessions with the same phone number so it is a good idea to do this with another sim card in your phone, this than will be your tablet s phone number.

Just tested it and it works great, you CAN see the names of your contacts to if you enable it in menu :

in whatsapp :
- settings button
- settings
- more
- show all contacts

Easy as that

If there are problems just ask

Ive installed whatsapp on my cheap ass qware pro 3 running ics, This must work on other devices aswell i guess.

1) Go to your contact list on your mobile phone, From the menu "import/export" choosse "export to sd".
2)Copy the exported file to your tablets SD card.
3)Install whatsapp on your tablet from the market or the official wbsite.
4)In whatsapp you fill in an old number of a mobile that still works (whatsapp cant be on 1 phone number on 2 devices), Or like i did fill in your "house phone, land line" number.
5)Whatsapp now wants to verify your number. choosse to recieve the confirmation code by phone call.
6)Enter the code and voila a working whatsapp.
7)Import the contact list file you placed on the SD card and you now have your complete contact list in whatsapp.

Happy texting!

Everyone! I managed to make WHATSAPP work on my tablet using the following procedure:
1. Registered my no. with whatsapp on my phone.
2. Used titanium backup to backup the app.
3. Restored the app + data
4. When it starts, it may say that the tablet isn't compatible.
5. Kill the app and restore only the data.
6. Run the app and voila!

Well it doesnt matter, smartphone or virtual. If ur tab isnt rooted, you cant do a thing. Use condi's guide to root it. Either use pre-rooted ics or upgrade to 3.2.1r2 which might change the kernel. Then you can do whatsapp on ur tab.
