    Default How to backup/restore WhatsApp Chat-History?
    Hi,

    I upgraded today from iOS4.0 to iOS4.3.2 and want to start from scratch without using the iTunes backup.
    Before upgrading I manually saved the "WhatsApp" Folder which contains:

    Documents
    Library
    WhatsApp.app
    iTunesArtwork
    iTunesMetadata.plist

    After reinstalling Whatsapp with itunes i also restored the above files (I've also tried "documents" and "library only) but whenever I launnch Whatsapp, it crashes after a couple of seconds. Without manual restore of the backuped files, Whatsapp works just fine. For the 3-4 sec before the crash I can see all my conversations with my contacts, only the contact images are missing.

    Anyone with an idea what I do wrong?

    It doesn't always work the way you think, copy a couple of files and put it back, there is more to it.
    If you have time , try this , do a restore to 4.3.2, jailbreak it first and only then do a backup restore with itunes. When you install Whatsapp, all the infos will be back on the apps and so are other apps which you have been using.

    Don’t worry, it’s pretty simple to get back your chat history on your phone. WhatsApp automatically makes daily backups of your data and stores them on your phone. You can recover the most recent backup by WhatsApp Chat History Recovery.

    Or you can try an utility called Backuptrans iPhone WhatsApp Transfer to load chats from your backup and restore them back to your iphone. It works.
