Modified twrp with backup restore feature for internal storage android 12 encryption
Hi samsungics1200,
thanks for sharing your modified TWRP derived from Nebrassy's TWRP. Did you also modify Nebrassy's updated version 03-07-22? How did you accomplish to modify twrp.flags? I tried it myself using abootimg. But it failed, my builds didn't boot.

Edit: I noticed that samsungics1200's recovery img also only starts when bootet via fastboot boot twrp.img but not when flashed into device.

I noticed that Nebrassy's official twrp-3.6.2_11-0-vayu.img and the development TWRP-3.6.2-vayu-Nebrassy-03-07-22.img don't support password protected backups. On the Backup page there is no tab Encryption next to Options. TWRP 3.6.2 seems to have this feature still, it is available e.g. in official twrp-3.6.2_9-0-star2lte.img for Samsung S9.

Hi guys ...
I'm having a few problems with TWRP. I've used it with full success in the past, mas now, I can no longer restore anything.
I've installed the latest version of LineageOs (vayu) through TWRP in a Poco X3 Pro (VAYU).

I've made a backup in Titanium Backup, and backup in TWRP previous to that.

Installed on top of my previous version dated May, I think. This is the new that I've installed: and rebooted.

After rebooted, took 5 minutes, rebooted again (without entering the system), and rebooted again to TWRP without asking to decrypt (TWRP version 3.5.2_11-0 Nebrassy).

Now, I see that all my partitions are gone, including my backups.
Manage to recover the information (TWRP restores and Titanium Backup restores) with the latest TWRP (6.6.2_12-0 Nebrassy), but cannot restore any of the TWRP Backups.

After many tests and reinstalls, I came to the following conclusion:

Everytime I backup and then restore (pattern and pin off, encryption off) either with twrp or even with orangefox, it looses the data folder and wipes everything. It says it's encrypted, but that's false. After reboot enters twrp and says "Android Rescue Party Trigger!", "The reported problem is: '--reason=set_policy_failed:/data/vendor', "E:Unable to decrypt FBE device"

I've tried even with older TWRP versions and an old LineageOs 18.1, that worked in Poco X3 Pro Vuya (I THINK, but can't be 100% sure) in the past with this Poco X3 but now nothing works. So, I can install Xiaomi Stock or LineageOs, but I can never restore any backup.

I've always tried without encription.

Is my phone with an hardware problem?

Even installing any of the xiaomis stock rom (Android 11 and Android 12), backup with twrp of Orange Fox, and restore causes the same issue.

Just to make things clear, I can install any rom (stock rom Android 11, stock rom Android 12, LineageOs 18.1 android 11, LineageOs 19.1 android 12), but the restore function after TWRP or OrangeFox backup never works.
Why a hardware problem? Just configure it fresh and be done with it. Twrp restore always been buggy. Store your titanium backups (is titanium even supporting a12?) On a sd card

    Team Win Recovery Project or TWRP for short, is a custom recovery built with ease of use and customization in mind. We started from the ground up by taking AOSP recovery and loading it with the standard recovery options, then added a lot of our own features. It's a fully touch driven user interface , no more volume rocker or power buttons to mash. The GUI is also fully XML driven and completely theme-able. You can change just about every aspect of the look and feel.

    Key Features:

    Touchscreen driven with real buttons and drag-to-scroll
    XML-based GUI that allows full customization of the layout true theming!
    Settings are saved to the sdcard and persist through reboots
    Ability to choose which partitions to back up and which to restore
    Ability to choose to compress backups now with pigz (multi-core processor support for faster compression times)
    Onscreen keyboard
    Easy selection of internal/external storage

    In addition to the above new features, TWRP features a scripting engine that allows an app to send commands to the recovery for the recovery to perform during startup. We call this scripting engine OpenRecoveryScript. This engine will be put to use immediately in the GooManager app. GooManager will be able to install recoveries automatically for most supported devices. The app will also let you choose to install multiple zips from within Android, wipe, and run a backup.

    We are looking for other talented developers, themers, and device maintainers if they are interested in helping with a free, open source project.

    If you have made your own TWRP build for an unsupported device, please let us know. We might add your build to the list of unofficial builds. Bear in mind that we are working hard to add more devices and we may add your device to our official build list later.
