i flashed twrp but now im stuck at a formatting error called "mke2fs -t ext4 -b 4096 /dev/block/sdc46 29325304 process ended with ERROR: 1 Unable to wipe Data. Unable to format to remove encryption."

I am installing PE11 Exp. ROM and right after successfully flashing my PE ROM I am stuck at this format stage. Will I be needing to flash MIUI stock rom and uninstall TWRP or what now? I'm confused. Pls help.

Just changed the formatter in format settings (rm -rf instead of formatting) and it did install PE rom but my internal storage is inaccessible now :confused:.

Same issue here, haven't changed the format settings yet. Did you fix the issue with the internal storage?

Just need for more steps. Wipe dalvik, data, cache, system, vendor > Reboot recovery. Format data> Reboot recovery. Then start do flash rom and do other steps again. This happen because of encryption. If wipe data error, go in fastboot and type "fastboot -w" in ADB PC
I am stuck as well. I followed the flash guide of the LiteUp MIUI V12.5 rom for the redemi note 8 pro: https://telegra.ph/Steps-01-01 And I got the error message after formatting the data. I asked on the telegram channel and they told me to change the file system to ext4, but that didn't worked. I tried your solution of wipe, then reboot recovery, fromat data, reboot recovery... flashed the rom again and then I rebooted straight to TWRP again. Can you help me?

If you have PC, boot in fastboot mode and type "fastboot -w"
If you dont have PC, you can do some tricks to format:
- For flash new rom, Wipe necessary things > Reboot Recovery > Format data > Reboot Recovery > Flash rom
- Or you can go Wipe > Advanced Wipe > Data and Change File System to Ext4 (Or any default file system that your phone using)

Back up your data if you still can.

You can try two methods below. Be careful: both will wipe our your data.


Method 1: boot into fastboot
fastboot erase userdata
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase system

Try flashing a recovery
fastboot flash recovery [name-of-your-recovery.img]


Method 2: boot into recovery, if you still can
In Twrp / Orangefox / other recovery, format data -> yes;
Plus, you can wipe data, cache and other partitions in recovery.
