Because I still don't know if there's a way to do it

Can someone tell me how I can access the LINE cached chats? I am not seeing any *.db files inside the AppData Line Cache folder.\

EDIT: I've found the databases in the LINE folder in AppData, but it looks like everything's encrypted. Is it possible to decrypt these msgs and user ID's? Or does LINE use some obscured cipher?

Xml to be removed
My line version is 6.2.1

And the xml to be removed is android_preferences. xml
Code


su
sqlite3 /data/data/jp.naver.line.android/databases/naver_line
delete from setting;
.quit


rm /data/data/jp.naver.line.android/shared_prefs/jp.naver.line.android_preferences.xml

And I successfully restored all the chattings.

Added note 3/9/17
With this method all the history pics would be lost.

Update:
Sorry, false alarm. All the chats are lost, definitely because I didn't make a backup before cleared the cache
Then again, maybe this was a lost cause after all, because I didn't have any backup at all before the error.
However, my PC version of Line still has all the chats. Anybody knows how to extract & restore it to the Android version?

My Sony Xperia crashed beyond recovery during a routine system update. It was restored via a factory reset. Can I do a search of either the internal or external memory to recover my Line chat?
