In earlier post, we showed you how to install WhatsApp on iPod and iPad but we didn’t show you how to activate it.
If you want to install WhatsApp on your iPod/iPad click here: How to install WhatsApp on iPod or iPad without Jailbreak
Posting the activation method over there would have made the post long and confusing. So in this post we’ll show you iGeeks how to activate WhatsApp on iPod or iPad without jailbreaking your device. Usally if you try to open WhatsApp on any iOS device except iPhone it will show an error displayed in the above image. The method posted below will help you in bypassing the error and activating the application successfully. Before you start this method you need an iPhone to complete the process so borrow somebody’s iPhone. Also make sure, don’t open WhatsApp application after you have installed it on your iPod/iPad. Open the application only after you complete the below steps.
Activate WhatsApp on iPod or iPad without Jailbreak
Step 0.5: We included this half step for those who have jailbroken device. Instead of going through the whole process just install WhatsPad from Cydia and you are good to go. No need to go through the rest of the process. If your device is not jailbroken kindly move onto next step.
Step 1: The actual method starts from this step. If you followed our method to install WhatsApp on your device then you already have iFunBox installed on your computer. If not download iFunBox from i-funbox.com
Step 2: This is going to make your friend, from whom you have borrowed the iPhone, very angry – If the iPhone has WhatsApp installed on it then delete the app. Now install WhatsApp on the iPhone, open it and activate it using the mobile number that you will be using in WhatsApp on your iPod/iPad.
Step 3: Connect the iPhone to your computer and open iFunBox. Select ‘iFunBox Classic’ and on left side click on ‘User Applications’ under the iPhone. From the list of applications select WhatsApp. Once you see all the files under WhatsApp, select both ‘Documents’ and ‘Library’ folder. Now click on ‘Copy To PC’ and save these selected folders on Desktop.
Step 4: Disconnect the iPhone and connect your iPod/iPad. Again select ‘iFunBox Classic’ and on left side click on ‘User Applications’ under the iPhone. From the list of applications select WhatsApp. Now copy the two folders ‘Documents’ and ‘Library’ present on Desktop and paste it into the WhatsApp folder as shown below. Once the folders are successfully copied into iFunBox, disconnect your iPod/iPad. WhatsApp would be activated and ready to use.
If you still get the error saying “Sorry, your device is currently not supported”, delete the application and try again from Step 3. Enjoy WhatsApping, and let us know in the comments section if you come across any problem while following this method.
Note: For those who are still getting error – I would be posting a video pretty soon which will help you guys.
