I had to factory reset my phone but when I went to install whatsapp it asked me a password to restore my backups but for some reason I can't get it right, after a bunch of tries (and having to wait 12 hours) it told me that if I get it wrong one more time the backups will be deleted.
So I used this script https://github.com/sidharthv96/WhatsApp-GD-Extractor-Multithread to download my backup, which is now safely sitting on my PC in crypt15 format.

Now what can I do to try and get this database decrypted? I don't have the original key and my phone is not rooted, is there ANYTHING at all I could do?
The most ideal way would be a way to try all the passwords I can think of until I manage to decrypt it, if I try one more time the original backup will be deleted and I'd need to figure out how to upload it again but I don't even know if it can be done

Greetings, similar situation, my WhatsApp, for some reason failed and asked me to restore from a backup, to which I proceeded to restore, then a message popped up indicating that something went wrong and that the restore could not be done and my WhatsApp started In zero conversations, I've run out of years of messages. Searching I found that I could uninstall and reinstall to force the restoration again, I did it, when the time comes to reactivate, I receive the SMS and the option to search for backup copies follows, I find both the local copies and the Google Drive one, I It asks for the E2E encryption key, (I know it) I put my password (not 64 digits), the process starts and at 44% it gets stuck, then it jumps again saying that the data cannot be recovered from that backup. Now I don't have much hope anymore, but if anyone knows how to get encrypted_backup.key on a non-rooted device, maybe I can use the tool: WhatsApp-Crypt14-Crypt15-Decrypter from ElDavoo to at least have my conversations decrypted on a PC for consultation. (My database is in Crypt15)

Thanks.
