What/how did you modify? I don't care to create new conversations, just need to reply and read.

i modified the "info.plist" file.
i uploaded the full messenger.app on my owm website.(but it doesn't work)
So i uploaded the "info.plist" file to google drive. Anybody can download it.

Here is the link: https://drive.google.com/open?id=1Lym-8TiziDrHRXOK9f35hPuJFCVqnW0m

Requirement:
-iOS 6
-Jailbreak
-iFile

Steps: (easy)
The "info.plist" file replace the original Messenger info.plist file.(like cracking)

Amazing! Can you tell us what you did to make this work? Really curious since if a info.plist hack can do this, that means the original functionality is there.

Cool hack - well done! One of the reasons I went from iOS 6 to iOS 9 on my iPad 2 was the demise of FB Messenger on iOS 6, so I might just give iOS 6 another spin on the device (for performance reasons) after reading this. Interesting how an info.plist hack restores the functionality of Messenger. I thought they shut down the older versions due to some big server-side change. Wonder if something similar can be done for WhatsApp - I imagine there are at least a few 3GS/4/4S users with iOS 6 out there who miss using WhatsApp :)

Tell me which app you wish use and i try to fix it for iOS6.

One tip for "carlvi" you said use iPad 2 and running iOS9, if you are missing iOS6 (style or perfomance) there is a way to running it again.
1. Jailbreak
2. CoolBooter
Check out "CoolBooter" it's a really good tweak for use older iOS.
