    Hi there, i just updated my phone to the newest whatsapp version a few minutes ago. Once I updated it it did not allowed me to open whatsapp. The message that says is:

    "The addons you are using on your jailbroken iphone are incompatible with this version of whatsapp"

    I know the update just came a minutes ago but if someone know how can i get rid of the problem to continue using whatsapp, let me know.

    I think in this update it allows you now to make calls.

    I'm having the same problem. I don't have copic or Couria installed. It happens after the 2.12.1 update. Any advise?

    If you are on the whatsapp beta and want to revert to the new app store version, do you loose your chat history?

    No. Updating from the beta to 2.12 didn't make me lose my chat history.

    This is a rant. Feel free to ignore it if you want, but I have to say it:

    You need to stop using this garbage software and convince your friends to switch to Telegram instead.

    Seriously, what business does WhatsApp have caring about what JB addons you have on your phone? They're poking into things that they have no business poking into.

    Send them packing and use better software.

    WhatsApp expired

    Hi. I had a message saying that my WA is expired and I had to update it. I have an ipad mini, IOS 8.1.2, jailbroken, but after installed the new WA it always ask for my Apple ID, password and closes. Any idea on how to fix it?
    Tks.

    Try updating WhatsApp through iTunes. You license has expired, so you will have to pay 1$ to renew the license.

    Thanks, bbrks. I did it through iTunes/iFunbox because my ipad is jailbroken but it didn't even request any payment. When I open the WA it requests my Apple ID and password and closes.
    I tried to update the Cydia but it's requesting a 9.99$ payment. I would pay if I was sure that it'd work.

    WhatsApp is not allowed to run on ipads, so if you don't jailbrake it you can't run it.
