========================================

Hi,

i owned ROG Phone 3 which recently died and i decided to switch to ROG Phone 6.

i can use dual Whatsapp account on ROG Phone 3 using twin apps, but why in ROG Phone 6 i cannot do that? (Whatsapp is not listed in the twin apps),

is it because i bought the Chinese version of ROG Phone 6 ?

please help

  • This indication CN_AI2201_user_release-mp is not the firmware version, in System, by the way you must have a version in this format, 2 letters_2 digits.4 digits.4 digits.2or3 digits like the examples below

    CN-32.2810.2206.95

    WW-32.2810.2206.95

  • thanks for your info

    firmware: CN_32.2810.2206.95

    the link you provided is different issue from mine (they can use dual Whatsapp with twin apps, their issue is the contact not showing)

    my issue is, i cant duplicate Whatsapp with twin apps

  • Whatsapp is not listed as supported apps to be cloned,

    how can i use dual Whatsapp account in ROG 6 (CN version)?

  • I know, but I did not find the same problem

    wouldn't it be easier to explain your problem in the Chinese section?

    Between Asus and Tencent I don't understand anything, the partnership is specific to Taiwan but on the Asus/tw site there is no CN firmware, only WW!!! CN firmware are on other sites, this one for example: https://rog.asus.com/phones/rog-phone-6-model/helpdesk_bios/


    There is an anomaly with your device that you should examine with the seller, the firmware being CN there is no reason for your device to be in .95, the OTA system should offer you at worst .134 at best .160 , if a search for manual update does not find .134 it means that you have the bootloader which has been unlocked (and can be relocked) which means that you are NO LONGER UNDER WARRANTY


    If you are aware of this fact and wish to keep it and update it manually with the link given above, you must put .134 then .160 (do not go directly from .95 to .160)


    I can't help you more, maybe a moderator but not before Monday

  • thank you Asus Zentalk,

    problem is solved,

    i have to manually added Whatsapp to the twinapps supported apps using adb command,

    i'm also adding other apps & games :D

  • update : cloned Whatsapp (apk) disappear after i restarted the phone.

    i have to reactivate it via twinapps.

    i guess i cant rely on (modified) twinapps to use dual Whatsapp account

  • The basic problem is that you are using Chinese firmware and China is blocking (or trying) most social networks, for Whatsapp it even reinforced this blocking 6 days ago, so know if it is a firmware blocking , permissions not transmitted to the pro profile, from the play store or detected at launch is quite complicated.

    Chinese users circumvent these blocks with varying degrees of success with a VPN

    The easiest way would be to change the phone to a global model or if you have enough knowledge to put a ww firmware, take a look on the reddit rog 6 forum to see this possibility
