    Anyone else getting this? It doesn't appear to be a play store issue on my end...I tried a clear data/uninstall updates just in case, and it's still happening, plus since then I successfully got the recent play games and wallet updates and they installed just fine.

    Same here.

    Running CM11 nightlies this side. Only WhatsApp seems to be affected as far as I can tell.

    Found a previous version here: WhatsApp Messenger 2.11.280 - APKTOP

    Not sure how safe this site is, but at least the APK installs and WhatsApp is running again.

    APK from WhatsApp's sites doesn't install either. (version 305).

    Yea, I'm on M8...and using ART, which you presumably are too...found this with a modification of search terms

    https://code.google.com/p/android/is...etail?id=61916

    Fortunately I already had whatsapp installed pre-ART, and it is working fine, and I have no interest in hassling with switching back to dalvik just for one update, so I just disabled auto update for whatsapp and am ignoring it

    edit: followed that bug report to its merged parent, https://code.google.com/p/android/is...etail?id=61792 which says it's fixed, so im not sure

    It has been a week, but I thought I'd bump this. I, too, am running CM11 nightlies, ART, but on oooold hardware SGS2 (T989 Hercules). Have tried everything (reasonable) to get it functioning again. Looked at the already noted bug report that has been fixed/closed. There is something weird: When I looked for files from the failed install, it shows a file fragment that says Dalvik. My hunch is that this version of Whatsapp is looking for Dalvik on some devices that are running ART, when it doesn't find it, it fails. I don't think this is an AOSP or CM issue. I think this is a Whatsapp bug.
