2 WhatsApp 1 iPhone

In this post, I will guide you on how to run 2 instances of WhatsApp instantaneously using 2 different phone numbers on 1 Jailbroken iPhone.


  1. WhatsApp app installed on your iPhone.
  2. “Application Duplication”, “mobileTerminal”, and “Install0us” from cydia.

Launch Terminal and type the following code:

su (Enter, will prompt you to enter the root password, which is “alpine” by default)

appdub -a WhatsApp.app (this will create a duplicate WhatsApp and import it into Install0us downloads)

– When prompted type Y and enter

Install0us will launch and you will have to install the WhatsApp ipa manually (Just click on it and install)

After the installation is completed, quit Install0us and launch the WhatsApp2 from your springboard.

WhatsApp will then ask you to activate your account, and will ask you for your mobile phone number. (Don’t enter anything yet)

To make this work, you should enter the phone number of the WhatsApp that is already activated on this phone. For example, if you had WhatsApp activated for a Lebanese mobile number, and you want to activate it for a Qatari mobile number, just enter the Lebanese mobile number again, this will reactivate the newer installation by  using a number that is already activated legitimately.

Now head back to the older installation of WhatsApp and when you launch it, it will ask you to reactivate. When asked, just input the new number you want to activate. WhatsApp will send you an activation code by now and your new WhatsApp will be fully activated and functional.

And you’re done! Each WhatsApp will get its own notifications and everything works perfectly!

  1. Hi,
    Everything worked fine but installous folder was empty when it was opened by the terminal. I saw on the screen the duplication was ok.
    Maybe the problem is because I only managed to install installous 4 (i am on jailbroken 6.1.2), i cannot find any repo with installous 5 : has the installation folder changed between the two of these ?

  2. Dumb question… So if I enter the phone number of another person (so I can receive that person messages)… will that person whatsapp stop working? or does this generate some sorth of duplicated account under a single phone number?

  3. awesome tutorial..! but the notifications stopped working, so I have to get into the app to receive the messages, and some of the alerts that sounds on the first WhatsApp are from the second WhatsApp… -_-….
    Any suggestions?

    • yeah i noticed this problem too… i managed to fix it by manually exiting the app via the multitasking bar each time! … little nuisance i know but that is ok for me

  4. Being honest
    IPA file didn´t appear on Installous, but I have found it with ifile, and move it to installous download folder…
    Now, when i open installous, it appears, but as i told you before…it closes itself
