Whatsapp Viewer
V1.3

WhatsApp Viewer




Small tool to display chats from the Android msgstore.db.crypt5 database.

How to use:

1. Download msgstore.db.crypt5 from your Android phone (located at /sdcard/WhatsApp/Databases)
2. Open WhatsApp Viewer
3. File -> Open -> Select file
4. Enter account name. This must be the same Google account name used on your phone. If you have more than one account, try the first one. Make sure you enter the whole email address as account name. If you have trouble, sometimes leaving the account name empty is known to work.
5. Click on a chat to show the messages.

Currently only text and image messages are supported (no audio, gps). You cannot see bigger images because only thumbnails are stored in the database. You see cryptic phone numbers because account names or details are not stored in the database (no support for wa.db yet).

This release is not stable and known to crash sometimes. Sorry.

Changelog :

v1.3
BUGFIX: App doesn't crash anymore if column order differs
BUGFIX: Exceptions are now displayed correctly to the user
BUGFIX: Smilies caused messages to be displayed incorrectly
Smoother scrolling: Improved rendering speed of very long chat messages (clipping)
Show chats ordered by last message timestamp
Chat list can be sorted now by clicking the column header

v1.2
Improved SQLite error handling
Bugfix: Memory Leak (68b8421)

I will not focus on crypting features, but you might try this (I haven't tested it):

First, decrypt your database file to plain msgstore.db.

Then, you could try to "repair" your database file:
Code:
echo .dump | sqlite3 msgstore.db > temp.sql
echo .quit | sqlite3 -init temp.sql repaired.db
You need SQLite installed on your computer.
Try to open repaired.db in WhatsApp Viewer.

Hope this works for you.

If you see a window similar like this, please let me know the "Exception code" and "Exception offset".

Thumbs up WhatsApp Viewer enhancements planned?
Hi all,

I downloaded the latest 1.5 version of WhatApp viewer and it worked straight away. Very useful tool. Thank you very much!

Are some enhancements planned like

- html style for chats?
- export of chats as html?
- display of user names instead of phone numbers?
- support for crypt7 chats?
- search function inside chats?

I am not sure, but is the WhatsApp db storing deleted chats as well? And I think there is a bug in the Viewer. Try looking at characters that have a & in front of them...

Cheers!
