Hi,

I encountered an issue concerning the encryption of data partition in MIUI 11, and am wondering if Orangefox would be able to solve that.

In Orangefox, I followed the steps as below
- flashing the full stock rom;

- reflashing the Orangefox recovery (since stock recovery replaced Orangefox);

[But I met with an error message in adb as below, but did not have any issues while using Orangefox afterwards.]

Code:
adb sideload orangefox.zip

serving: 'orangefox.zip'  (~48%)    adb: failed to read command: Undefined error: 0


- installing Magisk inside Orangefox.

However, when I returned back back to main menu, it showed "Magisk not Found", but Aroma File Manage was installed fully operational as Orangefox addon.

I checked two boxes below
- Disable DM-Verity;
- Disable Forced Encryption;
in the Orangefox settings both before and after flashing the full stock rom.

In addition, in fastboot mode, I flashed a Magisk-patched boot.img (that had been patched, before flashing the full stock rom, in a previously installed same stock rom).

All the above steps were performed before booting into system.

Finally, the data partition remained encrypted...

Would it be possible to resolve the issue via Orangefox?

May you need any further information, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Thanks in advance.

A lot of information - but not all the ones that are needed. You can see a list of all the required information here: https://wiki.orangefox.tech/en/guides/report

Furthermore, trying to stay unencrypted is not recommended at all. And, on lavender, it will certainly cause problems.

Hi, could you please specify (on the wiki page https://wiki.orangefox.tech/en/guides/report, for example) where I could file a report (apart from Telegram which I do not have)?

I did not find any channels to lodge report either in Orangefox recovery, or on Orangefox website https://orangefox.download/en.

Thanks.

PS: My phone is not lavender.

    Hi,

    Is it possible to change default back-up location (for example, to external SD card) in Orangefox?
    Yes. When creating a new backup, tap on the sdcard icon at the top right.

    Bootloop or brick.

    @DarthJabba9, Does this mean the new version of the recovery can be used to flash latest PE ROM?
    Yes

    Creating and Restoring backups

    Backing up and restoring can be very problematic if not done properly. Since you will be relying on the backups, this needs to be done with great care. So, I am devoting a separate post to this topic.

    Here, I will explain what works for me (your mileage may vary). But, first of all, read this: https://twrp.me/faq/whattobackup.html (and note especially the recommendations concerning "system" versus "system_image", and "vendor" versus "vendor_image").

    1. In my opinion, only your data partition (and perhaps the internal storage) should be backed up via a Recovery. While this may seem a bit unusual, you really should always keep a copy of your full ROM's zip installer.

    By keeping a copy of your ROM's zip installer, restoring the ROM would be a simple matter of formatting data, clean-flashing the ROM, booting up the newly flashed ROM (to make sure that it actually boots, and to let it encrypt the storage in its own way), and then rebooting to recovery mode. This would give you a working device, and a fresh copy of the boot, system, and vendor partitions. Then you only need restore the backed up data (and internal storage), and you have your system again.

    2. For full backups in recovery mode (if you must), the safest option would normally consist of:
    • Boot
    • Data
    • System_Image
    • Vendor_image
    • Internal storage
    3. Do not rely entirely on a nandroid (ie, Recovery) backup of your internal storage (ie, your user data, photos, etc). It is wise to have copies in the cloud, and/or on your PC.

    4. Do not rely entirely on a nandroid (ie, Recovery) backup of your data partition. It is wise to let your ROM backup your settings and apps data to the cloud (eg, google drive), or use an app to do the same. This provides a second line of defence. The reason for this advice is the dreaded "extractTarFork() error 255" which can sometimes (and randomly) occur when backing up, or (more devastatingly) when restoring a /data partition backup. Nandroid backups of the /data partition are potentially unreliable, and that is just the way it is. You might also want to read this.

    5. Always take a backup of your user data (to an external storage device or the cloud) every time you want to flash something (anything - ROM, recovery, mods, OTA updates, or whatever else). Particularly, with a device like lavender (with very flaky encryption), flashing or updating anything at all can potentially lead to your needing to format your data partition to get rid of broken encryption (this is especially the case with regard to moving from any ROM to any other ROM). Ignore this advice at your own peril.

    6. Creating backups of encrypted data is fraught with risks. If you want to backup the data partition of an encrypted device, you would be very well advised to first delete the lockscreen password/pin in the ROM before booting to recovery to create the backup. If you don't do this, you must accept the invitation to delete the ROM password (also available in the OrangeFox add ons menu) immediately after restoring the backup. Note - with lavender, if you have any of those new Android 10 custom ROMs that use FBE, you will have to work out for yourself what works for you ...

    7. Do not try to restore a backed-up data partition from one ROM to another ROM.

    8. Do not try to restore a backup of an encrypted device to a device that is not encrypted, or to a device that is encrypted with a different encryption protocol.

    9. Watch this space for more stuff to be added in the future.
