Whatsapp Crypt-DB Converter

Whatsapp Crypt-DB Converter


Converts the Whatsapp crypt7 and crypt5 databases to the old crypt database!

Reads the file /sdcard/Whatsapp/Databases/msgstore.db.crypt7 or ...5 and converts it to a file /sdcard/Whatsapp/Databases/msgstore.db.crypt.
Please be patient. After starting Its running in the background and may take some minutes!

You will need root permissions for crypt7 files.

Why? Other apps like SMS Backup+ will work again!

Whatsapp creates the crypt5 backup file every night at 4am.
Whatsapp Crypt-DB Converter will run at 5am and convert the database created at 4am.

Permissions:
Read/modify content of SD card: should be clear.
Find accounts: crypt5 database uses your Google Account Mail address in its key - we need to read it.
Run at startup, prevent phone from sleeping: needed for the 5am convertion

Why root? The key for decrypting crypt7 databases must be retrieved from /data/data/com.whatsapp - this needs root access.

Recent changes:
Added support for crypt7. You need root access for crypt7 databases.

Won't ask for root. I'm using a rooted phone, but when I press the button to convert it doesn't ask for root access, I don't get a superuser prompt. A prompt comes up saying "Converting (false)" and then it aborts. Help please.

Works like a charm It converts the db into the old format and interacts well with SMS Backup+ and uploads it. This is a perfect solution for those who still wait to get their Whatsapp backed up with a future version of SMS Backup+ that may or may not (hopefully it may) come.

A good workaround to backing up WhatsApp messages Ever since WhatsApp changed the encryption of the chat databases, SMS Backup+ wasn't able to backup my chats into Gmail. However, this app provided a workaround which enabled my WhatsApp chats to be backed up. Ideally, this decrypt functionality should reside directly within SMS Backup+, but until that happens, this app will stay installed on my phone.
