    Several days ago i updated whatsapp to 2.12.5.

    in this version the "show preview" option has been completely disabled and i dont see message previews on my lock screen any more, which for me is very frustrating.

    i want to go back to the old version, not sure if i need 2.12.4 or 2.12.3. either way i couldnt find anything on the web that seems trustworthy, every website has a different filesize for 2.12.4 which raises questions.

    does anyone know where to get a good version of an older whatsapp, and if i can even re install it over 2.12.5?

    You can roll back. But it's not a one step process.

    I rolled back a clock app at one point. Here is how I did it.

    I had two jailbroken iPhones. Both had iFile installed. My 3GS had the older version so I used iFile to zip the app and then copy it to Dropbox. On my iPhone 5, which had the newer app, I deleted the app from the springboard (ie, the normal Apple method of removing the app).

    Then I copied the zipped app from Dropbox using iFile on my iPhone 5, unzipped it and then placed the app in the correct app folder location. I then rebooted my phone and the older version was back.

    So, it's possible. You just need the older version of the app. That, I cannot help you with.
