I'll share my sources in the week starting from 2018-04-09 in this forum.
I'ts not bug free/feature complete but may be a good starting point.
... but now preparing for a short vacation to spain starting tomorrow.
See/read you in two weeks!
as you probably are aware of TWRP can't decrypt the data partition if you encrypted your phone: https://forum.xda-developers.com/sea...?query=decrypt
Unfortunatley @raupe was never able to find and fix the issue and things got very confusing because not only lithium is affected but a lot of phones have or had issues with this but in different variations. (Some couldn't decrypt their phone at all.)
I now went on a hunt for information (again) and found a couple of very interesting commits, bug reports and explanations that might help you fix this issue. I hope the following information is useful to you:
I have no issues with TWRP decrypting my data partition when using my TWRP build linked earlier. Lithium doesn't use FBE so that shouldn't be an issue, unless you use a ROM that has switched to FBE. Which ROM are you running?
Thanks for spending some time looking for answers. I'll check the links later. The build from my own tree didn't boot correctly last time I checked however so something else is broken.
Hi @blunden and thanks for replying to my post!
I use LineageOS 14.1 with official TWRP 3.2.1.
Decrypting data on boot is no issue so when encrypting I can use my phone normally. Decrypting data in TWRP isn't possible though or at least wasn't possible a couple of weeks ago. So both using the internal updater as well as updating the ROM from a manually downloaded ZIP is impossible.
However since you tell me that decryption with TWRP is no issue on LineageOS 15.1 while using your modified TWRP I'd say there is no worth in trying to fix a soon to be outdated ROM. Your time and resources are better spent on TWRP for LineageOS 15.1. Thanks for making things better for all of us!
Since I have your attention: I always try and look for ways to donate some money to maintainers and other important contributors of the ROMs, tools and software I'm using. To my surprise all Lineage contributors and maintainers I have talked to kindly declined any donations I offered them so far. Most point towards the official TWRP and LineageOS maintenance funds. If you accept donations I'd gladly say thanks by sending some money your way. If not then that's fine as well and I simply tip my hat in respect and gratitude.
I haven't tried this TWRP on 14.1 since I was already moving on to 15.1 when I found the need to update to TWRP 3.2.x.
Yeah, I'd refer you to the official TWRP and LineageOS maintenance funds too. The other guys in Lineage working on the Xiaomi msm8996 devices do most of the work anyway so if you want to donate to someone specific, I'd pick one of them instead.
An updated version with OTA support:
hallo mr. @blunden.
does the twrp you posted are latest than this one?
It's a wild guess but I would assume it is, as the one you link is some months old and the updated one is, well, updated and Blunden shared it 13 hours ago
And THANKS @blunden!!!
