Guide/Successfully install whatsapp on a wifi tablet without a rooted android phone !

Search This thread
Before you proceed your nexus or android tablet must be rooted for the proccess to succeed

The first thing you should do is install this version of Bluestacks:
http://cdn.bluestacks.com/downloads/0.7.2.751/BlueStacks_HD_AppPlayerPro_setup_0.7.2.751_REL.msi

And then root it using this Guide :
http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1935192

After you root Bluestacks Install the following apks on it
TitaniumBackup: http://matrixrewriter.com/android/files/TitaniumBackup_latest.apk
DropBox: http://dl.dropbox.com/u/6993309/Dropbox.apk
Whatsapp : http://www.whatsapp.com/android/current/WhatsApp.apk

Right click on the whatsapp file and select install with bluestacks installer,after it finishes installation,open it , enter your number and proceed , wait for the 5 mintues of checking to finish(you will have supposedly recieved the 6 digit code on your phone already) enter the code and intialize it .

after that install Titanium Backup with the same method you installed whatsapp ,(you should already be rooted), go to app selection , select whatsapp and back it up

then install dropbox , create an acount(if you dont already have one) upload the whatsapp files(they are in the titanium backup folder in the root of the sdcard).

After that install dropbox and titanium backup on your android tablet , sign in dropbox with your acount, export the whatsapp files in a titanium backup folder on the root of the sdcard .

Then open Titanium Backup , select the app list , select whatsapp , then select restore app+data(then after that restore data only bec. sometimes it doesnt)

Done.

Re: (Solved)Successfully install whatsapp on an android WIFI tablet without a phone !

Yet another how to install whatsapp thread

Technically its not without a phone though if you said you will receive the 6 digit code to your phone. ;)

Without a rooted android phone you mean?

Seriously though, if it works for those people then great. Is this method different from the other ones posted which used bluestacks?

I don't get the bit about the titanium backup 'files'. When I back an app up with titanium backup, it makes 1 file only with a .tiBkp extension.

Found it, look at this, using my N7.

I always pick 'app+data easy import'. That's why my titanium backups are only 1 file. I use the 'send this backup' option to upload them to dropbox directly from titanium backup.

Why so hectic method? Get whatsapp from play store or somewhere else and install it on your tablet, enter a number that you are using on your phone then you got to wait 12 mins for the verification, sms verification will fail then you will receive a phone call by whatsapp on your mobile device whose number you have entered which is a computer voice saying the 6 digits, hear it and enter it, your whatsapp will be activated..

Re: (Solved)Successfully install whatsapp on an android WIFI tablet without a phone !

Why so hectic method? Just install it on your tablet, enter your number then you got to wait 12 mins for the verification, sms verification will fail then you will receive a phone call by whatsapp which is a computer voice saying the 6 digits, hear it and enter it, your whatsapp will be activated..

You're speaking about the 3G tablet, yes?

No, any tablet, no gsm needed, only wifi..

Hmm this is very interesting..... I've got it working easily because I just pulled my titanium backup from my rooted phone over and installed it, but I'd be very interested to hear from someone trying this other way....

Ahhhh, never noticed that my 'send backup to cloud' was in special features of titanium backup. Paid version only, I see..

I too am skeptical of this 'wait 12 minutes' thing..

Lol I uploaded the files from the titanium backup folder to drop box manually , because you can't access the root sd card of blue stacks from the PC normally.
I was not aware that I can send backups from titanium backup directly ! :p

I confirm that this works. Rooted bluestacks, install and verify latest Whatsapp, backup with titanium, transfer backup to tablet using Dropbox and do a restore on the tablet.

I used a non-android telephone and my tablet is wifi model.

Great how to. Worked beautifully. Only hassle was with the first TB restore on the tablet I got the 'tablet not supported' error. A 2nd restore got the app working 100%.

    For those still struggling, as well as for people who only have their tablet to do this on do the following:

    1. Download the latest version of Whatsapp and AppGuard
    2. Install both WA and AG
    3. Take care NOT to run WA yet!
    4. Do the normal 3 step securing of WA with AG
    5. Now open WA as you normally would and agree to the terms and conditions
    6. Enter your details and wait for it to give you an error
    7. (this is important!) Minimise it, ie make sure its still running in the background
    8. Do the 3 step process in reverse using AG (in other words remove the secured version and reinstall the original)
    9. Once done, open WA again

    Everything should continue as normal from hereon in :)
