Hello for everyone, Today we going to get Whatsapp in our Beast Tablet Google Nexus 7 (tested WIFI VERSION AND 3G, ALSO WORK WITH ANY TABLET HAVING ANDROID!)

I was very busy developing and cooking roms for allwinner a13 tablets


THIS HOWTO IS FOR PEOPLE WHO WANNA INSTALL WHATSAPP IN THE TABLET

DO YOU NEED: 1 ANDROID SMARTPHONE AND WHATSAPP INSTALLED AND UPDATED!

REMEMBER: YOU CAN ONLY HAVE ONE INSTALLATION OF WHATSAPP BY PHONE NUMBER, IF YOU WANNA USE WHATSAPP ONLY IN YOUR TABLET, PLEASE UNINSTALL WHATSAPP ON DEVICES
USING YOUR PHONE NUMBER.


This a new method to start to get working whatsapp in our tablet.

1. Install "Carbon backup" APK from play store on your android smartphone and on your tablet.

2. Take a back up of whatsapp from your smartphone and select the option to save it on your external SD card.

3. Now move to your tablet. Take a backup of any app. In my case, I took the back up of Temple Run2 and select to save the back up in your external SD card.
(This is mainly done to create the Carbon backup folder structure.)

4. The back up would be available under /ext_sd_card/carbon/

5. Now back to your smartphone

Copy the complete carbon folder under /ext_sd_card/carbon/ and upload it some where. (You can use some file manager like EXexplorer to do this for you)

6. Moving to your tablet, download the carbon folder you uploaded in your tablet and replace with the one that is already existing on your external SD card.

7. Open Carbon application and restore WhatsApp

8. It will ask you to install whatsapp from play store.

Install WhatsApp to the tablet!

9. Select restore option again and restore WhatsApp data

10. Open WhatsApp with the same state as you left it on your smart phone. (IF YOU HAVE MESSAGES THERE, THEY WILL BE IN TABLET TOO)

If you want to use a different number on your tablet, then follow the below steps after Step 11.

Send one or two messages to your friends.

11. Uninstall whatsapp and install it again.

12. Restore the back up again from carbon app.

13. Open Whatsapp, you will be asked to verify your number.

14. Enter your new number and select Ok. Please make sure that the new number is in working state i.e. the SIM card is inserted into a phone and can receive SMS/call

15. Whatsapp will send the verification code to your new number.

16. Wait for sometime and you will get the prompt on your tablet to enter the verification code.

17. Enter it and enjoy

Easy method to import contacts:
1. Import the contacts from Outlook to a CSV file.
2. Login to Gmail and imported the CSV file.
3. Login to Gmail in your tablet and contacts will be synchronised!


DO NOT FORGET SAY THANK YOU AND SHARE THESE THREAD

Hai, Im from Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 7.0 P3110 Wifi user. I search for how to install WhatsApp in WiFi only tablet and guess what??? I TOTALLY works. A zillion thanksto you

BTW, for those who got 6 digit authorization code that means you have installed the wrong version on the BlueStacks. The WhatsApp version on BlueStacks and on your tablet must be SAME.

Hope thread starter will update his OP since Im also thought just download it from somewhere else to be use in BlueStacks but no, you must installed the same version.

Before this I use the latest version which is 6 code, appguraded but you cant enter your code there. But this method totally works. Now I have Viber and WhatsApp, hey who need a simcard? Thank you so much AnonFBI

I updated the step 4 in thread,

Verify your are connected over iINTERNET with BlueStacks and wait SMS code to your phone

You must setup whatsapp first in bluestacks and wait SMS 3-digit code in your phone numbers
if that do not work use call verification and save the 3-digit listened in the call! (please be patient sometime take more time to get sms or call verification)
