I tested now, is secure, i uninstalled AppGuard from my tablet and i reboot, WhatsApp stay get messages and work.

Whatsapp in BlueStacks is not need it now, you can uninstall if you wanna, this is secure and better remove of bluestacks.

This method is more clean and secure, you cannot use whatsapp with the same phone number in 2 devices in the same time, you will get messages in one or another

I bricked my Galaxy SL GT-i9003 and it's behaving like a tablet without IMEI/baseband.

So I made it into a "real" tablet, and this worked like a charm!

Thank you sooooo much!!

Thumbs up It works, but...
Hi all!

I have a question; why do you use Bluestacks App Player???

When I got the verification code from Bluestacks App Player, WhatsApp on Nexus 7 asked again a telephone number for verification!!!
If I use the call verification, WhatsApp on Nexus 7 answer me that I must wait 50 minutes for another call verification (due to the one with Bluestacks)...
Then, after 50 minutes, I did the call verification directly on Nexus 7...

Summarizing...

1) I installed WhatsApp 2.8.7326 version from provided link, secured it with App Guard by removing the access at phone status and identity and then I launched WhatsApp.
2) At the verification I used my telephone number (home, office, it's not obligatory to use cellular number) and when the SMS verification has failed I asked for call verification directly on my tablet. Then I used the code provided!

Is Bluestacks App Player really necessary???

Yes, it is necessary because BlueStacks let you use verification methods working, directly on nexus 7 you cannot do it!

You need setup the same phone number in bluestacks and nexus 7 (later of get the sms to your phone, received by bluestacks, you can setup
nexus 7 with the same phone number again and activate the installation with the 3-digit code)
