I've been struggling to flash Android 12 without my internal storage to be unaccessible by TWRP... I simply can't decrypt my data and the only way to fix it is to format data and revert back to a Android 11 ROM.
Did anyone manage to flash Android 12 successfully? How?

Well I gotta tell you sadly, decryption does not work for any Android 12 system currently. So you gotta have to live with it, until we get decryption support.

And don't try to fiddle with disabling encryption, I did it and I quickly regretted it.

Also, you always have to format data after flashing a ROM to remove encryption, except if you update your current ROM.

ADB Sideload is the answer.
If you have TWRP installed already then as you know when you go into recovery you cant see any data. User ADB Sideload instead and it will flash it the same way

ADB sideload isn't the answer, because that's already what I use to flash a Android 12 based ROM. Doesn't change that TWRP can't decrypt data

That is because their no recovery that will decrypt A12, just not possible yet. Sideload is the way for now, it works fine. Decryption isn't available yet and hopefully someone cracks it soon

Not towards achieving decryption, however after flashing A12 ROM, and clicking on format data, I get numerous errors with TWRP. Any solution? Is it related to recovery or some issue with data partition? Thanks!

Many people have issues with TWRP. Flash Orangefox recovery in TWRP, boot into it and try.

I'm having the same issue but how can I revert back to a Android 11 ROM if my internal storage is inaccessible?
