Hey there,
so I am kinda confused here. I've just flashed TWRP and LineageOS onto my Motorola Moto G5S. Now when I want to install Magisk to get root access and therefore boot into TWRP it prompts me with a password entering screen. Despite entering my correct passwordd (Also tried it with a pattern lock) it only says that the decrypt fails and the password would be wrong. Unfortunately I cannot try an older version of TWRP or Android because my main phone died recently and I don't want to use my data completely.
I hope someone can help me and I'll thank y'all in advance. :)
