I inherited this phone from my father 2 years ago, but didn't have the 6-digit code to get in. I didn't want to do a fresh install, because I was hoping that at some point I could retrieve data from it (last messages and pictures, etc). I left it at a company that was specialized in this kind of data recovery, but according to them (as of last summer), there still isn't a way to decrypt the damn thing. I've also asked at Huawei, but never received a reply.

Does anyone here maybe have a tip on what to do? Is there a way to retrieve that data, or should I just sell it? Many thanks in advance for your replies.

I guess I'm the 10th million asshole asking this question. :giggle:

In my days, everything was hackable and decryptable, but it seems only the CIA is now able to do this. Maybe I'll call them.
