    Pft. Sure it may (not can)
    Firefox works on the precedent even though the play store says it wont. So how about that.

    Just email the developer and ask for a copy of the apk so you can side Ioad it.

    Click the apk file In downloads, click yes you want to enaible non market installs.

    Done.

    Its how I got firefox, (well from the mozilla ftp sight for arm6 devices)

    WhatsApp requires a cellular-connected device.

    I know, it's weird, but that's the way it is.

    We currently do not support tablets, computers, or Wi-Fi only devices, and do not plan to do so in the foreseeable future.

    Ok, change the build.prop to say your device is one that is supported. Make your phone think it is a note ii

    It's more complex than that. Part of the WhatsApp setup procedure is that WhatsApp sends itself a text (SMS) message using the device's cellular number. If your device doesn't have a telephone number and cannot receive an SMS over a cellular network, it ain't gonna happen.

    Ok, so you have a device, device a with root.
    Edit the build.prop to match another device, phone b, that you can use that has root and has service.

    Install watsap on device b.
    Set it up for your account.
    Now install titanium backup.
    Backup watsapp with data.

    Now copy that to device a.
    Install titanium backup.
    Restore the backup of watsapp with data. If you matched the phone id right in the build.prop, it will think its on phone b, and it will have the data memory of having had used an sms to set up.

    So...

    its on device a, which says phone b in buld.prop

    Was installed and set up on phone b.

    Backedup with data and copyed and restored on device a.

    How about that?

    Or perhaps there is a fake sms host app that can be used.

    Kind of like changing your dns.
