The developer updated it on his iPad Pro running iOS 11 firmware. Therefore, this update is strictly for users who are currently using Electra jailbreak toolkit.
You can use it on the following firmware iOS versions –

How to install Watusi WhatsApp on iPhone X and below
Automatic installation (recommended)
1. Start an SSH session
Step 1 Ensure your device is running Electra toolkit. If you don’t have it on your device, you can install it from this link. This toolkit is necessary if you want to establish an SSH session with your device.
Step 2 Install iTerminal application from the official App Store. This app will allow you to SSH into your device without a computer.
Step 3 Launch iTerminal SSH client from your home screen once you install it.
Step 4 Tap SSH to start an SSH session.
Step 5 Enter the following details in their appropriate locations.
- Nickname – Leave this field blank
- IP Address – Your Wifi IP address goes here ( you can access your IP address from Settings > Wi-Fi > tap the “i” icon)
- Port – 2222 or 22
- User Name – root
- Password – alpine
Step 6 Press Connect and you will now get access to Terminal with full root privileges.
2. Install WatusiTools
WatusiTools package is a dependency of this tweak so you must install it beforehand. If you skip this step, no hacks will be applied to the stock WhatsApp application on your device.
Step 7 Simply enter the following command in the Terminal. Remember, there’s a space after “-O -” and there are no line breaks present anywhere in this command.
/bootstrap/usr/local/bin/wget -O – http://cydia.f0u4d.com/electra/com.f0u4d.watusitools/install.sh | /bootstrap/bin/bash
3. Install Watusi WhatsApp
Step 8 Key in the following command again in Terminal to install the aforementioned package. This command will automatically fetch and download the package from developer’s Cydia repository and install it automatically on your device.
/bootstrap/usr/local/bin/wget -O – http://cydia.f0u4d.com/electra/com.fouadraheb.watusi/install.sh | /bootstrap/bin/bash
That’s all there’s to it! You can now apply all hacks that come with this tweak from the Settings section. If changes don’t appear right away, respring your device.
Step 9 If you wish to uninstall these package simply enter the following commands one by one –
/bootstrap/usr/local/bin/wget -O – http://cydia.f0u4d.com/electra/com.fouadraheb.watusi/remove.sh | /bootstrap/bin/bash
/bootstrap/usr/local/bin/wget -O – http://cydia.f0u4d.com/electra/com.f0u4d.watusitools/remove.sh | /bootstrap/bin/bash
Step 1 Follow this tutorial and familiarize yourself with the basics of manual installation. You can use a computer for this or you can do everything on-device as well.
Step 2 Download the requisite ZIP packages from the download links above and extract them.
Step 3 Copy the following files from WatusiTools archive to the respective directories as shown below.
- libWatusiTools.dylib to /usr/lib/libWatusiTools.dylib

Step 4 If you want to uninstall these packages, simply navigate to these directories again and remove those files.
I don’t recommend using this method because it’s a bit too complicated for the average user. Moreover, users are reporting a few errors and bugs after trying this method. I highly suggest you stick to the automatic method as it’s relatively better and easier.
