    I have problems with badges, they only with appear on the no copy one (the original) Even though someone talks to me on the other one, the badges will appear on the original, Any ideas how to solve this problem?

  7. Ashlee says:

    I have a problem with badges, every time I use the duplicate app, when I have a badge it goes directly to the original instead of the duplicate! It is annoying, anyone has an idea how to fix this?

    For those who add the error “invalid ipa”: open the info.plist file as TEXT not as property list. And then it will work! šŸ˜€

    • Jack says:

      Can u help me to show how to install second whatsapp .,thanks a lots of .,

    • Ben says:

      Hey, I just tried to do the same, installing a second whatsapp to run it with a different account, but this method only renamed my current version of whatsapp and I wasnt able to open it at all after this. How did you do it? Did you duplicate the app prior to registering your account?

      Thanks, Ben

  13. John Nathan says:

    It Worked Great .. Good look!!

  14. Ipod lover says:

    Is there a way to do this without Installous? For some reason Installous won’t work for me and doesn’t show up in ifile. Is there another downloader or something I can use as an alternative?

  15. Crason says:

    the app crashes, couldn’t be launched
    any solution?

  16. Moe says:

    Thanks alot its worked with me i really like it u so smart

  17. Ralph says:

    The installation went well though the app (Dropbox) is crashing when I try to open it. The problem has been reported here and elsewhere. However I didn’t find a solution. Does anyone have a solution to offer? For example, are there any files missing in the installation bundle? What is the difference between those where it worked and those where it crashes? Many thanks for an answer.

  18. Parm says:

    I installed the app but when I try to open it. It keeps crashing.

    Hi there,

    Just a quick question (if anyone is still on this page): Does any of you know how I could install the free game “Tower of Saviors” twice on an iphone. The game does not natively support multiple accounts, but you can have multiple accounts by just changing out 1 plist file with your account data. With multiple installs, I could have a separate app for each account.

    I tried a lot of ways to do this (including the one above), but can’t seem to get it to work. If anyone has a solution, I’ld be happy to hear about it. It’s a free game, so you can try all you would like šŸ™‚
