    This procedure can be used when Whatsapp is installed on a new phone or when an old phone had been reset and no new chats had been created since the backup used. The phone Huawei must be rooted. Restoring chats from SD card failed. Copy the backup made by TWRP (Team Win Recovery Project) on SD card to PC. It contains a file:
    data.ext4.win000
    that can be opened by WinRAR. Navigate to folder:
    data.ext4.win000\data\data\com.whatsapp\databases
    and extract it using WinRAR on PC.
    This folder contains among many others the message db (msgstore.db) file in clear, not encrypted format. Using AirDroid or MyPhoneExplorer copy this folder to the SD card.
    After installing WhatsApp the complete folder must be copied to the database location on the phone using a root explorer, e.g. Solid Explorer, overwriting the present "databases" folder:
    /data/data/com.whatsapp
    Now, Whatsapp will show only the chats from the backup.
