  1. Hello
    I have tried making your steps and everything was fine but I did not get the key in my folder. Despite my phone hasn’t been rooted and it has android 4.4.2, your system did not work for me
    May I get your tips? Any help or suggestion would be really appreciated. Thank you so much

  2. I get the following error at step 2 (Samsung Note 20 Ultra 5G – not rooted):

    /system/bin/sh: su: inaccessible or not found
    adbd cannot run as root in production builds

    In step 1, I also had to download to download WhatsApp Key Extract Tool into a folder with no spaces in the folder name.
