    Hello!

    I would like to ask if somebody is using Whatsapp on Q5. I'm trying to install it on a clean installation of OS 10.3.3.2137.
    When I start the app it asks for phone number and after a successful confirmation it just get stuck on the loading screen like on the image.

    Q5 and Whatsapp-img_20191209_003025.png

    Does somebody know some solution for this behavior, please? Thanks for the replies!

    You mean Cobalt's playstore and Whatsfixer?

    I believe everything WhatsApp related that conflicts with latest version needs to be removed. Perhaps someone else can explain better than me.

    Don't think you'd have to remove Cobalts stack, as this shouldn't conflict with WA. Just any other instance of WA that you'd have had installed previously - WhatsFixer definitely isn't needed anymore. But if you were able to install this version it doesn't really sound like this is the issue.
    Just keep trying as it'll sometimes take a few minutes for initial activation.

    Good news! I managed to get it working but the solution was really plain stupid. I browsed thru the forum and found, that somebody was advising to not tap "OK" on the appearing window where the app warns about the unsupported google services. So I tapped somewhere else and it just started

    Cool, glad you got it figured out.

    I just have another question. I installed the Cobalt services on two Q5s and the google playstore always crashes when it's downloading an app. I've got also two Q10s and there's no problem. What could be the problem?

    Well, I'm going to say it's probably because the Q5 has a weaker processor and 50% less RAM/ storage than the Q10. Just use Yalp, it's a better alternative anyway.

    The Q5 and Z3 only run native well at this point. Yalp is a stretch as-is.
