Whatsapp blocking jail broken iPhone
New update of whatsapp is now blocking jail broken iPhone.
Any solution to overcome?

Same here. QuickReply doesn't work anymore. Whenever I get a new message, I get a "the add-ons you are using on your jailbroken iphone are incompatible with this version of whatsapp"-Popup. Doesn't vibrate anymore.
Why are they doing this? I paid for this app and jailbreaking is legal as far as I'm concerned.
I sure as hell won't give up my jailbreak for this app.

Just because jail breaking is legal, doesn't mean they have to support it.
Try xcon on Cydia.

We legally buy, or download when it free. Now they are saying that we use jail break iPhone and not allow us to use their app.
I understand that dev won't support if there is any issue with app (maybe due to jail break). But blocking legally bought app from using is EXTREME.

Just do what King_O_Hill suggested!
Install xCon from Cydia. It should solve your problem. Open up the Cydia-app and search for xCon and install. No need for adding sources or anything!
Good luck I_ssan!

I installed xCon and it didn't work. I opened an issue to address, but not sure how long that will take.
Any other thoughts?
I filed it as issue #281.

wiki-website, and it says last confirmed working version of WhatsApp is 2.6.10. I suggest you try getting that version of WhatsApp instead as the latest WhatsApp doesn't seem to be supported yet by xCon :/

xcon is not working for me, still the same problem with QR. :-(
Any other solution?

I personally don't use whatsapp at all but I've come across some one I know who was using it and their phone was jailbroken. I'll check it out when I see him again and let you guys know.Passionate tech blogger, student in college and part time worker at SoldMyDevice.com

Here is the fix for Whatsapp saying "The add-ons you are using on your jailbroken iPhone are incompatible With This version of WhatsApp".
The problem is with the add on in my case of MessageSwiper.
Delete MessageSwiper and Whatsapp will work as normal. The developer of MessageSwiper is aware of the problem and working on a fix for it
Hope this helps everyone.

Whatsapp works fine on my jailbroken iphone. However, Line games will not allow you to run on jailbroken iphone but if you install tsProtector P from Cydia, all Line games can be played.

AppFront (from Cydia) could have been a good alternative as it combines Whatsapp, Viber and Skype all-in-1. However it's not yet compatible with iOS 5-6 as far as I know, so let's hope they release the compatible version soon.
