Whatsapp Crypt-DB Converter

Whatsapp Crypt-DB Converter


Converts the Whatsapp crypt 8, crypt7 and crypt5 databases to the old crypt database!
Republish as 1.3.1 because play store seems to not have published v1.3!?

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 and crypt8 files.
Why root? Other apps like SMS Backup+ will work again!

Whatsapp creates the crypt5/7/8 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 crypt8. You need root access for crypt7 and crypt8 databases.
Republish v1.3.2 as play store seems to not have published v1.3 + v1.3.1

An alternative to WhatsApp Tri-Crypt Until Tri-Crypt's crypt 8 decryption becomes available, I'll be using this app. Trigger button doesn't function, manual execution of SMS Backup+, required.

Works with the latest WhatsApp Crypt8 Trigger backup with SMSBackup+ does not work (3rd party integration option enabled).
