Fix Whatsapp crashes on iOS 8 Beta

This crash occur because of the bug exists in the Whatsapp application. Whenever a chat has one of the character combinations ff, fl or fi in it (case sensitive, so capitals are not an issue) the app will crash upon opening it.

To fix this you need the following applications

– iExplorer http://www.macroplant.com/iexplorer/
– SQLite Database Browser http://sourceforge.net/projects/sqlit…

By using the iExplorer application navigate to

 /Apps/Whatsapp/Documents/

than copy the

ChatStorage.sqlite

to your PC.

Open the file using SQLite Database Browser and use the below sql queries to fix the problem.

update ZWAMESSAGE
 set ZTEXT = replace( ZTEXT, 'ff', 'f f')
 where ZWAMESSAGE.ZTEXT like '%ff%';
update ZWAMESSAGE
 set ZTEXT = replace( ZTEXT, 'fi', 'f i')
 where ZWAMESSAGE.ZTEXT like '%fi%';
update ZWAMESSAGE
 set ZTEXT = replace( ZTEXT, 'fl', 'f l')
 where ZWAMESSAGE.ZTEXT like '%fl%';

Problem in this solutions is that whenever someone sends a message with these string combination you need to repeat this combination.
