Modded WhatsApp v2.12.128 for Symbian (Autostart disabled and option to install in E/F drive)

Update (2016) – This mod is an old version of Whatsapp and is no longer under development. You may refer to this post to get the latest version of Whatsapp. Besides Whatsapp will stop working in Symbian phones after December 31, 2016. So better switch over to Android or iOS before the deadline if you want to save your Whatsapp data.

WhatsApp E/F Mod for Symbian
WhatsApp is currently the most popular, cross-platform live messenger app for mobiles. Symbian version of WhatsApp is also available and is one of the most downloaded apps in Nokia Store. Besides all the goodies there are some features of WhatsApp which many of us (including me) do not like at all. For example –

It runs in the background even when you exit from the app (I have already described some solutions to this problem in this post).

It auto-starts every time phone reboots and there is no option in its setting to turn this feature off

For Symbian OS, it is programmed to automatically install in C drive (occupies over 8 MB phone memory, which is too scarce in Symbian phones, especially the older ones)

whatsapp_v2118_symbian_moddedThus if you are searching for a solution to these problems, you are at the right place. Fortunately a modded version of WhatsApp is available for Symbian (created by dailymobile forum modders) which can solve all these issues. Give it a try – download WhatsApp modded version 2.12.128 free from here (unsigned sis file) and install in your phone – during installation un-check “Autostart” under “Install optional files” popup – an optional app WhatsApp modifier will also be installed along with WhatsApp which can be used later on to control WhatsApp (to force close it or change its icon). Remember, If you already have WhatsApp installed then it will be replaced by the modded one and you will lose all your history and chats.

Note – This modded version of WhatsApp is compatible with all S60v5 and Symbian^3/Belle/Belle Refresh/FP1/FP2 phones. Phone must be hacked to install this file as it is unsigned. Latest official signed version of WhatsApp can be downloaded from here for Symbian S60 and here for Nokia S40/Asha phones – you won’t get updates for Symbian apps from Nokia Store anymore as Microsoft has closed it down.

Change-log for the update (version 2.11.561) – Some much needed privacy features have been added like options to hide last seen time and hide profile picture
Shows date and time of media sent/received
Option to swipe across all pics of a sender
Pics can be opened with default system photo viewer too

      Unfortunately I can’t do this buddy as I don’t have access to the source code of WhatsApp. All we can do with the Symbian app is a bit modification in signing and installation location.

    How to prevent the modded Whatsapp from getting my chats and history deleted?

    • Roohi September 20, 2015 at 9:26 PM #

      The only way is – backup and archive your chats and then install modded version
