TWRP Password for data-partion?

Hello to you, I am sending an πŸ…‚πŸ„ΎπŸ…‚

TWRP is asking for a password to decrypt the data partition. But I never willingly defined one.

𝙸 πšŠπš•πš›πšŽπšŠπšπš’ πšπš›πš’πšŽπš:

  1. Developer options> desktop backup password.
    No password was defined.
    I defined one. Did not work.
    I deleted this password. Did not work

  2. I used screen lock password to open the data partition in TWRP. Didnt work.

I use a real password - no PIN, no pattern, no fingerprint.

What can I do?

I use LeEco LeMax X82
LineageOS 16
And I want to make a backup and then upgrade to 17.1
And if possible without loss of data and settings πšŒπš‘πšŠπš—πšπšŽ 𝚝𝚘 /e/

Please help

Regain your privacy! Adopt /e/ the unGoogled mobile OS and online servicesphone

PHONE-Modell: LeEco Le Max2 LEX829

This should be the decryption password, if TWRP supports encryption on your device, which is not guaranteed …

If TWRP doesn’t support encryption on your device, just hit β€œCancel” at the password prompt to proceed to work with the other partitions.
This doesn’t help with backing up the data partition, of course, and TWRP wouldn’t backup Internal Storage anyway …


Thank you :thinking:,

but even Upgrading to 17.1 is not possible without the password.
The Command: adb sideload /path to the 17.1 doesnt work.
How can I upgrade if this isnt possible❓

Is it possible to upgrade from lineage 16 to /e/ without loosing data and loosing APP settings❓

hello Elk,

your link is very :sparkler: eye-opening :flushed:

But if it is not TWRP. Which tool shall I usw to backup all my changes (documents and photos) on a daily Basis.
I dont want ti share my life with Googles. so the Fiofle services for this arent installed.

*Which tool shall I use to backup

It should be. Installing an OS doesn’t concern the data partition (not at this point at least, an OS might complain about the state of the data partition and demand a factory reset once it is installed, but this is a different matter then).

What’s the error message?
Did you skip the password prompt and start ADB Sideload in TWRP before running the command?

Edit: On second thought, you need a backup first, so leave that for later :wink: .

As far as I’ve seen there is no general answer fitting every device, situation and user preference. A forum search might help you find something you might like to do.

Googles backup services are πŸ…½πŸ…ΎπŸ†ƒ installed on my phone. So I cant use them for regulary backups

There are some hints in this topic … [HOWTO] Backup and Restore Data on Android Devices

how does /e/ manage regular backups?
may LeMax would be on the list of supported devices. So I can chhange to /e/

I guess with the ecloud, which is intended to serve as a replacement for the Google cloud …
Can’t say much about it, though, as I don’t use it.

Is it possible to upgrade from lineage 16 to /e/ without loosing data and loosing APP settings❓

hallo Elch, kΓΆnnen wir auch auf deutsch weiterschreiben?

I don’t know.

You better completely remove your password, this may β€œuncrypt” your data partition.
Try the method proposed here : [HOWTO] Backup and Restore Data on Android Devices (chapter 2/, second dot about Secure Boot). You may not have Secure Boot, but the method is still valid.

Also, what gives a twrp decrypt ( ?
