Conversion of crypt12 files to crypt8 file format

Users can convert .crypt12 WhatsApp backup files to the original .crypt file with the WhatsApp Tri-Crypt / Omni-Crypt app, but you cannot convert it to any of the previously used version, including crypt8. Once you have the .crypt file, you can extract the messages with other tools. Considering the state of WhatsApp, it is likely that crypt12 to crypt8 was perhaps something that has been used  years ago.
