I recently passed my iPhone 2G along to a friend without a smartphone, mainly for the sake of giving him a possibility to use Whatsapp. Now it seems that Whatsapp has suddenly stopped supporting the old app - the latest update is definitely out of the question as nobody compiles for iOS 3 anymore. When I start it, it says 'This version of Whatsapp is too old.'
I was wondering if anyone has any suggestion regarding either getting a newer version of Whatsapp on the device (what's the newest version that works on iOS 3.1.3?) or fooling Whatsapp into thinking it's a newer version? Editing a plist?
I have SSH access into the phone, so I figured that might help. I just read in the info.plist that it's Whatsapp version 2.8.4. Simply changing this did not work as intended, obviously - Whatsapp has also changed the verification process, such that you receive a 6 digit code rather than the 3 digit one the 2.8.4 version expects.
