    Need help..

    JB my iPhone 5 iOS 6.1 since Wed using evasiOn ver 1.0, everything gone smoothly, Cydia patched resolve Weather app issue. since then i installed all these tweaks fr Cydia, Auxo, FakeClockUp, BiteSMS, Quick Reply for Whatsapp, ScreenExtender, Zephyr, Zeppelin and OpenNotifier. Manual reboot many times no issue.

    Everything work perfect until just now I did manual reboot, once open Whatsapp discovered that all my conversations gone, left only Group Chat Theard without any conversation history. Is there anyway I can recover my conversation history?

    The last tweak I installed was OpenNotifier last night, not sure if this tweak is the culprit.

    WhatsApp conversations are only stored locally, so your only way of getting them back would be to either restore the phone from a backup - or possibly to extract the relevant file(s) from the backup and copy it over via SSH.

    Google tells me the file is called ChatStorage.sqlite, and I located it in /var/mobile/Application/(folder for WhatsApp)/Documents/

    I've never tried it myself so I don't know if it'll work, but it might :)
