It is saved in /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf file.

You can open it with any text editor.

If you have Terminal Emulator you can also do this:

cat /data/misc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf

You can also download the app "wifi key recovery" which is a lot easier.

The thing is I don't like giving root access to apps unless I really need them, but thank you for trying to help :) –  Fischer Mar 27 at 18:56
