Conversion of crypt8 files to txt file format

Back then  when WhatsApp Messenger used still .crypt8 files, plenty of users tried to recover the chat history from them and save these in one of the common formats, even just text files which is what crypt8 to txt conversion refers to. Currently (for couple of years) crypt12 format is used for the same purpose, but the way how to recover the chat history is still the same.

You have to first get the original crypt version from your crypt8 file and then proceed to extract the chat history with a program known as WhatsApp Xtract.
