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

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.

*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:

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