previously before S-off, i was running stock Asia ROM 1.48.1303.33 and whatsapp was able to work properly . but after flashing to WWE_2.00.405.3 (to make sure the revolution s-off exe work) whatsapp stopped working and it says that "we cant identify your device. Please turn off the phone, take out the battery, restart it and try it again."

anyone with possible solutions ?

HTC changed the way they identify the IMEI and phone number of your Tablet in 2.XX.XX software versions.
I have been looking for a solution as well but could not figure anything out.
Viber has the exact same problem as it can;t access the IMEI of the Tablet and Force closes.

I have the exact problem as you too. Then i install this ROM http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1175589 and now Whatsapp and Viber working fine together with the phone function for the Flyer. But the software number now is 1.38.709.7 and the ROM only in English and Chinese.

Maybe you can try backing up Whatsapp and data by using Titanium Backup, then flash a newer rom, lastly restore Whatsapp and data using Titanium Backup.

Let me know if it works :D

I tried just as you said, I backed up whatsapp from my desire and restore it to my flyer. After launching it asked me to enter my phone number. I ignore and reboot coz my bat is running empty.

when I re-launch whatsapp, my chat history from desire was displayed.
Im not sure if it works.

Anyway I decide to flash custom rom now. My gf commented that my flyer is slow on games. and compare it to an Ipad.

flashing to i00 rom did not fix this issue, maybe because that rom is base on 2.xx soft number.
Using titanium restore worked diff for me. it uses my phone account not my flyer gsm number.

So I flash another rom, the one from zhangip, which is base from 1.xx soft num.

Whatsapp now works normal, at last. Thanks.
