Default [Q] Decryption

Is it possible to decrypt using the stock ROM, or at least get TWRP to be able to backup the encrypted phone?

Thanks

Umm, I think you mean deodex or odex.
And yes but you need an unlocked bootloader or root to install TWRP.

No I encrypted the phone from Settings > Security> Encrypt Phone. I know on the Nexus 4 there was an option to decrypt afterwards. I also knew that TWRP could mount the encrypted partition on the N4. I have Verizon now though so no Nexus for me. It looks like the Moto X is only able to be decrypted via factory reset. I was wondering if there was another unofficial method to decrypt such as a command line command.

Thanks

Sorry. I thought asking to decrypt was clear enough. (My bad) Anyway is there a way to get TWRP reading the encrypted partition? I want to have encryption for security reasons, but still be able to create TWRP backups in case I break something.

Thanks

PS: Decryption works fine too since then I can TWRP backup and re-encrypt.

How did you get TWRP to work with encryption on your MotoX?

TWRP sadly does not work with the encryption. I had to reinstall the stock recovery, encrypt, then install TWRP again if you want. You can't flash or make nandroid backups but at least the phone is encrypted.
