Keepchat

Save your Snapchats and Stories automatically

Credits go to @sturmen who invented this mod and to @stammler for his previous updates and of course to @rovo89 for making the Xposed Framework.
Lastly a special thanks to @jbergler for helping to keep this mod updated.

Note: @stammler transferred the project to me, see the old and initial thread.


This Xposed module saves all images and videos upon opening to the specified folder on your SD card. It uses the Xposed framework to hook into the Snapchat app and do the magic. Because it uses the Xposed framework, it is device and rom independent :).
YOU MUST HAVE XPOSED FRAMEWORK INSTALLED FOR THIS TO WORK

If you find any bugs, please report :)

Confirmed to work with Snapchat 5.0.38.2 (version 5.0.38.1 was not tested.) and above(21/10/2014)
Newer versions may or may not work. Try it.


Features
  • Recieved Snaps are saved when viewed
  • Stories are saved when viewed
  • Sent Snaps are saved automatically
  • Does not report as Screenshotted

Installation
  1. Install the awesome Xposed framework on your rooted device.
  2. Uninstall any 2.x version of KeepChat.
  3. Install and activate the mod, which you can download from the Xposed Framework App or from here.
  4. Reboot your device to start the mod.

To Do
  • Give me Ideas :)

FAQS

Settings not being applied?
Try these in order after you have set your settings
- Force Close snapchat and try again
- Restart
And lastly if it still doesn't work it means there is something wrong with your phone and the best solution is below.
- Convert snapchat into a system app. Currently the best solution in my opinion.

Have a problem?
Submit a bug report. (see below)

I WILL NOT BE REPLYING TO PRIVATE MESSAGES ABOUT KEEPCHAT. POST HERE IF YOU NEED HELP.


Bugs
- none :)



BUG REPORTS

Ok there are two things I need if you want me to read it.

1. LOG (see below on how to get it)
2. A description of the problem and how to reproduce it.

Getting log
By default keepchat does not print to the log.

  1. Enable Log
    - Open Keepchat settings
    - Tick Debug Mode (i.e. turn it on)
  2. Turn off other Mods.
  3. Restart
  4. Open Snapchat
  5. Reproduce the error
  6. Get the log
  7. Upload only the revelant part of the log
    - Only upload the part after the ----KEEPCHAT STARTED---- Block
    - All of Keepchats logs come in blocks. So remove other entries that are not keepchat related.

Getting an error on 4.0.21 with the latest (3.0) of Keepchat. In the logs it says the module has loaded and I've uninstalled rc5 (which worked perfectly). Problem is, when I open a snap it says "image cannot be saved. Error 1." or something very close to that in a toast. Looking at the logs nothing is happening after the module loads on boot. No recognizing that Snapchat has launched, no loading my settings, nothing. There is nothing in the log from Keepchat besides the module being loaded like any other.

Hmm I had that issue. Just delete the keepchat folder. And try again. I disabled all writing to log unless debug is turned on.

Haha, reverted back to rc5, rebooted, and you had already replied. I'll try deleting the directory and see what happens.


Edit: made a new empty directory and changed the save location to this folder and it works now. Any insight on why it wouldn't work OK the folder I had been using before?

Nope I wasn't able to reproduce it after the first time I had it. So just assumed it was something random

In response to your reply on other thread, thank you for your reply and take as long as you need to fix the module would just be nice to have the ability again :)

Great. Mind doing some debugging for me?

EDIT: could you please use the newer version if you want to help debug? and then once the error occurs please submit a bug report using the instructions in second post

    Ok so here's the update you guys want.
    I'm finally free so I'm gonna update in a day or two.
    I'm planning on rewriting it again and removing support for previous versions to get rid of clutter. If someone does want any specific version to have support I may add it on again.

    Basically just wait for a beta/alpha in a day. If that works fine. I'll push it to everyone.
    28
    I think this should support the latest stable 5.0.14.0!
    KeepChat_3.4.3 Beta_Craig.apk

    Let me know if that doesn't work out!

    Maybe I'll get to chat saving stuff after Memorial Weekend. Have fun guys!

    Hey guys,

    So I have an announcement to make. As you all know the next version of Android will be released soon.
    I will be moving to that and as Lollipop uses ART I will not be using Xposed Framework at all.
    Now this will obviously make it very hard to update this module.

    Now there are two different futures for this module.

    1. I hand the project onto someone else who is willing to keep this module updated.

    2. I continue blindly developing this module and I have a set of Beta testers, who provide me with the correct details.
    The beta testers would need to be chosen because the current system of reporting errors is not formalised and hence I do not get enough information.


    The ideal option would be to find someone else, because it will both be easier and quicker to get updates. So look for someone guys. :p



    Also lastly I have released is my final update 3.6.3 to the app because I won't have any time for a while due to exams. And after my exams one of the above scenarios will take place.
    The update should support everything below and including 5.0.38.2 (although it has not been tested with 5.0.38.1).
    I have also uploaded snapchat 5.0.38.2 in the first post of the topic for those who have not received the update.

    Ramis

    As the current maintainer of Snapshare, I already am into Snapchat and Xposed. I'll have to take a look into the source code fist, but I don't foresee any problems, I'll probably take it over if you want to :good:
    21
    Alright guys, Ramis handed me over this project, so from now on I'll take it over.
    First, a huge thanks to you @Ramis, for the effort you've put into this module!

    I created my own thread, this is my Keepchat thread.

    That is the place where I will provide support and release updates, not this thread.

    (I don't know if this one will be closed, yet)
