    I have tried to install Whatsapp and ran into all kinds of issues, e.g. not able to backup to cloud and no contacts sync. I finally found a solution and thought to share this back to the community. This solution enables contact sync and sending images as attachment and voice messages.

    1. Install Cobalt package following it's instructions. Make sure appstore is fully working.
    2. Install sys.android- files(2 files) as shared by Cobalt.
    2. Install WAA fixes using sideloading.
    3. Download old Whatsapp version 2.16.116 APK from WhatsApp 2.16.116 (451200) APK Download - AndroidAPKsFree
    This is important otherwise contact sync and media will not work.
    4. Set back your phone date to something in September 2016.
    5. Install the Whatsapp 2.16.116 APK and activate the whatsapp.
    6. When the message pops up about Google services required, press the back button on the LCD screen. Further setup your account.
    7. Test the Whatsapp by sending a message, voice and image as attachment. This should work now.
    8. Change back date to current.
    9. Update Whatsapp via the app.

    You have now the latest WhatsApp 2.16.296 fully working. :-)

    I've been occasionally using the Android version for whatsapp for a while now until I recently realized that I couldn't send files. I installed WAA Fixer and started to send files except if I edit the same file using the new 'editing app' that came in the new whatsapp update. Why can't I edit and send without getting 'camera failed'? Bless.
