Default Any way to restore my WhatsApp msgs?

Sorry if wrongly posted but I need some help,

Today I lost my WhatsApp chat history somehow and I am trying to restore it, did all the tricks I could find.... but no success.
My wife died the 22th of April and I really want her msgs back

I Have no Key file (searched for it but can't find it
Tried xTract butcouldn't open my files
Tried a bunch of websites...

I got one msgstore.db.crypt file
7 msgstore.db.crypt7 files with dates (the last 7 backups I guess)
1 msgstore.db.crypt7 file
1 msgstore.db.crypt5 file

Who can help me out ?

Sorry to hear about your wife passing. I can't even imagine...

I'm not really familiar with Whatsapp but thought I'd give a crack at getting to help nevertheless. So, to get your key, you have to be rooted. But it seems like this
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2689911

might have a lot of useful info on how to decrypt them and I'm sure someone there knows how to get the key too.
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com for more info!

(One+1 maybe...)

*edit* Saw you are running a rom, so am assuming you are rooted. Duh...

But I see you posted over on that thread. They would obviously know more about it than I would. I wish you well!


I dunno if this might help at all:

https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...d=com.tricrypt

And I guess you should be able to find your key in the /data/data folder for Whatsapp.
