So first things first, install ES File Explorer or any other root explorer(I used CM's file explorer for this)
1. Browse to /system/
2. open build.prop with an editor
3. Search for two lines:
4. Change both of the above to ' =false '
5. It should now work
6. Don't forget to reboot!
For me, personally, by changing the 1st one to false worked for Hike, but for WhatsApp I had to change the second one to false also.
