not working on S6 Edge
Hi, first of all, thanks for developing this program to help us, who need to decrpyt Whatsapp's db.

I was trying to decrypt the database on my S6 edge, but when I ran the extractor, after I selected ok on the phone for debugging, the program exited by itself in Windows 8.1. I managed to take a screen shot of it before the Window disappeared, please see attachement.
Anyone can shine me some light on this?

Also, when I used this on my GNex, it also said there is no such directory when copying to: "sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases/.nomedia" Anyone experienced that before? I am wondering if this is because I am actually not logged into Whatsapp on this phone. This is the reason why I need to use the wahtsapp key/DB extractor, I upgraded to a S6 Edge before backing up my wahtsapp and now I want to merge my old histories on GNex with my new history on S6 Edge. I cannot log into Whatsapp anymore with my old Gnex because S6 Edge uses a micro SIM so my old SIM doesn't work on GNex anymore and so I cannot receive SMS to log into Whatsapp on GNex. Although the .nomedia was not copied, but I still got the decrypted db file in the extracted folder in Windows and was able to open it with SQLite Database Browser.

HOWTO for ENCRYPTED PHONES
HOWTO for ENCRYPTED PHONES

You need:
Modify WhatsAppKeyExtract.bat
- Change at bottom to avoid exit from cmd.exe when testing
"exit" by "exit /b"
- Add "%1" at line 68 to pass the phone password encryption to java "abe.jar"
java -jar bin\abe.jar unpack tmp\whatsapp.ab tmp\whatsapp.tar %1
Download and install Java Cryptography Extension (JCE).
Search in google jce-7-download or jce8-download according to your version of java
- To install in my Windows (8) I had to copy the two files to the following path (admin rights needed)
C:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre1.8.0_31\lib\security
Execute WhatsAppKeyExtract.bat with new parm (password of your encrypted phone)
for example "WhatsAppKeyExtract.bat pepe1234"
Before installing JCE, when you executed WhatsAppKeyExtrack.bat, you saw:
Code:
[...]
Now unlock your device and confirm the backup operation.

Strong AES encryption not allowed
Magic:
Version:
Exception in thread "main" java.lang.reflect.InvocationTargetException

        at sun.reflect.NativeMethodAccessorImpl.invoke(Unknown Source)

        at org.eclipse.jdt.internal.jarinjarloader.JarRsrcLoader.main(JarRsrcLoader.java:58)
[...]

Now, with JCE instaled, you see it's allowed:
Code:
[...]
Now unlock your device and confirm the backup operation.

Strong AES encryption allowed
Magic: ANDROID BACKUP

[...]
By the by, in my Samsung phone, the button to proceed with the full backup is not seen:

This is for all with the Syntax problem.

There seems to be a problem with the version check, I just removed it and then everything worked perfectly.

Replace the contents of your WhatsAppKeyExtract.bat with this
pastebin.com/trNC3Ahh



Good luck

Edit:; Huh... because I don't have 10 posts, I can't put a link to the file. Just copy the pastebin link to a fresh tab.

Error: Unknown option: -d
I have the same problem as Reinforcementshavearrived - “Installing legacy Whatsapp 2.11.431...Error: Unknown option: -d” – ultimately resulting in error messages often reported by other users, such as “bin\tar: apps/com.whatsapp/f/key: Not found in archive” and “Extracting whatsapp.key ...The system cannot find the path specified.”

As recommended by TripCode on 18-05-2015, I updated the SDK packages (I originally had “adb-setup-1.3” installed): I installed the android studio bundle (141.2178183) and several packages, amongst others the latest Android SDK- (Rev. 24.3.4), Platform- (Rev. 23) and Build- (Rev. 23) Tools on top of “Android 4.1.2”. However, the message remains “Error: Unknown option: -d”.

Any ideas how I can get this to work? Thanks!

fyi: Unrooted Galaxy S2 with Android 4.1.2, Whatsapp Version 2.12.250, USB Debugging enabled, Windows 10, java version 1.8.0_60, path variables are set

Edit: Is it possible that the "-d" option is not understood by Android 4.1.2 (API 16) and earlier versions? At least the below website suggests this is the case. If this is correct, is there any chance I can still get this to work?
The link with this info: bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=851224

Edit 2: Solved it, still some error messages, but at least I now find files in the "extracted" folder! I simply removed the command "- d" in the ".bat" file "WhatsAppKeyExtract" as suggested here stackoverflow.com/questions/13400499/is-there-any-way-to-ignore-install-failed-version-downgrade-on-application-insta
