Whatsapp in Anbox
#1
Hi,



I know this topic has come up a few times. I have been experimenting with Anbox - I've followed these instructions https://wiki.mobian-project.org/doku.php?id=anbox. I then downloaded the whatsapp APK from the whatsapp website.



It installs fine using adb, but then whenever I run it I just get this:

Has anyone been able to get this working?



I'm also finding battery life to be (anecdotally) generally poorer with anbox services running - it seems to interfere with the phone deep sleeping.

Yes it worked previously but not sure if anything has broken in the meanwhile. This thread may help but otherwise, try downloading an older apk from elsewhere.

Thanks for your response, I haven't got it working yet, but I've got further by downloading old images from apkmirror. I guess there will be one that is not too old that still works in that set.

My dudes, I got a bit further with a 2-month old apk of whatsapp on Anbox on PmOS Phosh. It involved a little bit of this

https://linuxconfig.org/how-to-install-a...nstall-adb

but, although I could sign in and receive an access SMS, it didn't bring up my chat history and when I input a contact's phone number, it wouldn't recognise it as one tied to another account that I could message to. Makes me wonder if your communications are actually going through some intermediary google or whatever service that anbox doesn't have
