It depends. As long as your phone is not encrypted you can mount the userdata partition on SALT (advanced menu) and copy what you need. If your device is unlocked you could also use fastboot to flash userdata or if fastboot denies (some versions may reject that) you can use TWRP and a shell command to flash the partition back. Even SALT could be used as long as you are using a laf version on your phone which is supported for flashing.
About the pin question I'm not sure what you mean. Data encryption has nothing to do with a pin/pattern to unlock. You can have an encrypted device with just swipe to unlock the phone. If your data is encrypted you cannot make any use of it when backing it up as the backup will be encrypted as well. Restoring the encrypted backup after a factory reset will 100% require more partitions to be restored then just userdata (at least persist,drm,encrypt partitions for a LG g4 but there might be more)
and NTFS will do as well as long as the Linux system supports it (like FWUL does)

I did try it but with no success:
2019-12-11 06:35:07: F_MOUNTIMG: started with /home/android/USB/userdata.img
2019-12-11 06:35:07: F_MSGE: started
2019-12-11 06:35:14: ERROR: Image could not be mounted to /mnt/salt_mnt.Is this even an mountable image?
I believe this is the result of the partition being encrypted. I performed a factory reset on the phone and bootloop went away this is good since it means it was a software and not a hardware issue as I suspected. I believe the best next step will be to try to flash back some of the partitions to see if with any luck I can gain access to my original data. I am looking into using TWRP but there does not seem to be a version for the H860. There is G5 H850 then jumps to G6 H870. Is it possible to use H850 version at all?
can anybody please tell me where to get the nightly build of salt
i am not linux educated , but have tried for several hours with errors about zstandard so i need the build with all the data included i cant find any link for the nightly build
(fatal error) missing python-zstandard
after i update with dev options it keeps throwing errors
so i tried these options
1) rename your usb device to e.g. "USBDISK" (so remove the space)
2) or switch to develop version of SALT (read the SALT faq on how-to)
fwul nightly used with dev options even tried another usb stick get same error cant mount the img etc in salt
still same results nothing is able to mount or open this raw .img file , any other ideas maybe its encrypted or corrupt in some way its 3gb in size so data is present but cant access it
thanks , and happy new year to you
