I have a Moto X(4.4) Dev edition running the unofficial TWRP v2.6.3.1. I recently encrypted my device and now TWRP can't make nandroid backups. I know why it doesn't work but my question is this. Is there any way for TWRP to mount my encrypted data partition?

I do not think so. Use Philz it is great.

You can step right into it. It recognizes your twrp folder. Use recovery tools to flash the IMG from home.

Don't know a way either, your just not supposed to use it when your stuff is encrypted. It's not supported and well, I'm sure you don't like bricks lol

Does anyone like bricks haha?...anyway thanks for the input I just needed to encrypt my device and was wondering if there was a way to take a backup. I'm going to go try the previous suggestion when I get time but for now I'll have to live without nandroid.

I encrypted my device to keep people with the ability to breach my data partition with ease out of my device since a screen lock is so easy to bypass especially on a rooted device with a custom recovery.

I firmly believe, to each their own. So not trying to dismiss anyone's reasons.

Just personally.... If someone wants to go to all the trouble to see my data...they can have at it. Lol. Nothing exciting on my phone.

I flashed Philz recovery but I can't figure out how to mount my data partition.
