    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-whatsapp-blackberry.jpg
    Hi all BB10 users,

    I am blackberryIRAN user.



    Is the question ‘What next?’ once native BB10 WhatsApp app stops working! post Jun 30th, 2017
    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-whatsapp-stop-support-blackberry.jpg

    Worrying you!?
    Also the WAAFixer is not working so well in the area of media sharing. So what can be done?



    Fear Not! . The below mentioned fix will help you in solving media sharing issues present when using WhatsApp android app !.

    best Video tutorial :



    This looks complex, but it ISN’T. This fix is pretty SIMPLE!. Just follow the steps!

    Be careful and make a backup from your chats in bb10 whatsapp and save it in other folder for restore it in android ver if you need them
    i am not responsible for lose your chats


    Suggestion: Don’t waste your money in buying third party apps when this issue can be fixed 100% for free !



    If it works, please LIKE this post



    Prerequisites:
    1. Add a microSD card to your phone. If you don’t have, please buy one as this is a MUST for this fix to work!


    2. Enable the developer mode on your BB10 before proceeding with this fix.
    Settings > Security and Privacy > Development Mode
    Turn it on, provide the password.


    3. Download and install BGShellPlus or BG Shell from Blackberry World.
    (This is a command line editor. You can use any other app which has ssh editor.)
    Recommended bgshellplus:http://appworld.blackberry.com/webst...ntent/19204890


    4. Download and install official WhatsApp android app on your BB10
    Link: https://www.whatsapp.com/android/


    5. Keep your phone in ‘Airplane Mode’ to avoid someone sending you message on WhatsApp during the fixing.



    Known missing features:

    1.Maybe You cant crop or resize your video by the whatsapp (also maybe you cant send video recorded by camera) however you need to change format or resize ( less than 16mb for official & less than 30mb for GBWhatsApp ) your videoes with another app like Video Converter or shrink for video in BlackBerry World they both free for video less 30 s or
    Video compress apk its free and works perfectly on bb10 with no time limit !
    http://www.mediafire.com/file/gwqtb4...ted_3.7.04.apk


    All other features work great in all versions without any problem


    Note: I have tested this fix with developer mode and debug mode on.
    Thanks to Ajith Raveendran. He has confirmed this even works when the developer mode is turned off!



    If you need more information on how to create symbolic link read this post check the links else lets begin fixing! :

    Also
    http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...d-card-939705/
    (Thanks you doctor-iddqd for make me aware about the availability of SSH on BB10 phones)



    Please follow the steps carefully as mentioned below :


    Step 1:
    Go to microSD card location from File manager app and create a new folder named: (keep the "A" capital)
    Android


    Step 2:

    *Updated*

    Force close the WhatsApp which is currently running on your BB10. You can follow the two steps mentioned below:
    Got to Settings > App Manager > Device Monitor > WhatsApp and click the blue ‘Close’ key on the bottom of the screen. This should close the WhatsApp app (Don’t open WhatsApp until you finish with this fix!). (Thanks Jenserm for this)

    Else, another way to do this is:



    Install Android Assistants
    Download : Link (or download it from any android appstore)
    Open it : Go to WhatsApp and long press on it, select ‘Details’ and click on ‘Force Stop’. This should close the WhatsApp app (Don’t open WhatsApp until you finish with this fix!)

    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-img_20170515_212228.png



    Step 3:
    - Use File Manager app: Go to below mentioned path and find the folder by name ‘WhatsApp’.
    Path: misc/android


    - Then ‘Move’ (not ‘Copy’) the folder to the newly created folder Android on your external microSD card.
    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-img_20170515_205822.png



    Step 4: Final Step
    Open BG Shell Plus app and enter the below mentioned commands one by one:
    Code:
    $ pwd
    Here you will see the path address for BG Shell Plus folder. You need change it.
    Code:
    $ cd /accounts/1000/shared/misc/android
    Check the directory once again:
    Code:
    $ pwd
    If you see /accounts/1000/shared/misc/android, then run the last command:
    Code:
    $ ln -s external_sd/Android/WhatsApp WhatsApp
    Be careful its Ln -s ==> l=L ln means link
    Not in -s
    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-img_20170515_205753.png




    Done! Now you can send media to your contacts with WhatsApp android app !



    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-img_20170515_203553.png



    Video tutorial for anyone if needed. :




    Note:
    Turning off the phone or uninstalling or updating the app ?doesn’t remove this fix .
    Plugging out SD card and reinserting it and video calls and voice calls must be tested.
    by dear kksirur88 testing
    all features including voice call and video call works fine.
    also I test Plugging out SD if U reinserting it again not affect

    This fix also work for GBWhatsApp or WhatsAppplus
    By changing the name of destination folder in the SD card from ‘WhatsApp’ to any named folder like ‘GBWhatsApp’ or ‘etc’
    Links for these apps:
    Download gbwhatsapp for Android apk last version
    https://www.official-plus.com/
    https://www.whatsmods.net/
    if u installed GB you must type this commend instead :
    Code:
    $ ln -s external_sd/Android/GBWhatsApp GBWhatsApp
    If you go right ,Gbwhatsapp work great without camera problem
    Finally the android Whatsapp media sharing problem solved-img_20170520_160722.png

    Again I suggest don’t waste your money on buying Nemory WhatsApp or other paid apps. They charge you $$$ for nothing!
    Use free apps like GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp+ for more features like theming.



    The article and the instructions are for free use please don’t use it to sell your apps!

    So so thanks from kksirur88 for spend time and make article clear

    I purchased nemory whatsup 10 without knowing that is apk. It is exactly as same as whatsapp apk. But he added some beautification on top of that.

    I tried to send a pic using camera and it immediately says camera failed

    I think there is no use with that app
