Hello everyone. It's been a while since you got a whatsapp update. This is due to some difficulties we had to cope with. Due to oreo changes we have lost zips, so only signed apks remain. This means that you need root and an app like Titanium backup to restore data after installation (signed apks cannot pass authentication).
I'm sorry, but that's the situation. For those without root there's substratum, both DJ's Sprite and Davey's Domination are the best you can wish for, so we're not without alternatives.
An update is coming soon
