i understand it would be hard to maintain. not to mention the available TWRP has some issues it seems (decryption, ADB sideload etc.)Well... The kernel of the current builds triggers a double free call on something inside the EXT4 filesystem - as my system only crashes on first login I assume something is really broken inside the decryption routines... Which is very, very bad... I'll try to use an other version of the kernel, but I guess all data is doomed at this point.
And regarding the Lineage Recovery: I could strip it, but won't be able to include any replacement (I have currently no time to integrate or even port the TWRP fork for SODP)... So, I'll let it be as it is.
no worries, at least this reminded me that i need a proper backup solution and set up a nextcloud instance on a VPS. : )"FIXED" IT! I was able to boot my device using an older kernel version - it seems like newer kernel versions have a bug inside the EXT4 filesystem driver, which causes the system to panic during decryption! I'll try to recompile my engineering build as userdebug and push it ASAP. Again, I'm very sorry for your data loss, but I hope this saves others from experiencing the same pain.
too bad i didn't have any other option but to lose all my data and go with a different ROM for the time being. never would have suspected the ext4 module as it's so mainstream..
this makes me wonder though.. do you know of any full nandroid(-like) backup solution with LOS recovery? that way i could take a snapshot of my current working setup, flash oem from SODP and try your debug build(s) without much hassle..
