    I have a Jailbroken Itouch and I got Whatsapp to work perfectly. I just needed to use someone's number to get the text activation (Pay as you go).

    I wanted to do the same with my Ipad2.
    I bought the application from Itunes and then used iphone configuration utility to install it on the Ipad2.
    It installs and shows up, but when I click to open the application I get the following

    Now I've read you can open the IPA file and edit the plist files but the problem I am having is after I edit the files. I think the phone detects it is not a valid IPA and if I get it to install it crashes on launch.
    Or add telephone capabilities if your device is jailbroken. Unfortunately ipad2 isn't jailbroken yet so we have to modify the app itself.


    Here is what I did.
    I tried using 7-Zip open with Zip, then plist Editor for Windows to edit the plist files.

    In the iTunesMetadata.plist
    I remove

    <key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
    <dict>
    <key>telephony</key>
    <true/>
    </dict>

    and
    <key>softwareSupportedDeviceIds</key>
    <array>
    <integer>2</integer>
    </array>

    Change the 2 to a 1

    Then the Info.plist file
    I remove
    <key>UIRequiredDeviceCapabilities</key>
    <dict>
    <key>telephony</key>
    <true/>
    </dict>

    Save the files and then save it back into the IPA file.
    but when I install it on the ipad2 using iphone configurator i get kAMDReceiveMessageError

    I searched online and it says Whatsapp won't let you install whats app past version 2.5.8 .
    Is there a way to download a legit version of whatsapp at version 2.5.7 for example?

    If not I have to download an illegal version from XXXXXXXX but those seem to crash on load or won't install at all.

    If its jailbroken its very easy to find.
    If it is not you need to buy it for your iphone then transfer the IPA to your itouch using iphone configurator but you might need to update the iPA file if you have the latest firmware on your ipod
