Hello,
I've got a Samsung S9 with LOS 17.1. I had LOS-Recovery and tried to switch to TWRP because I'd like to install supersu to get root access for Titanium Backup.

Now TWRP says it can't decrypt the phone. I put in the right pattern, but it still says "Unable to mount storage". Even though I never encrypted the storage.

What can I do? Thanks

disable device encryption by turning off the screen lock then reboot into recovery. it will work then. dont forget to turn encryption back on when you are done.
