General :: Full Phone Encryption Not Working On N4 / PA / TWRP

Jul 17, 2013

When I go to system settings -> security -> encrypt phone, with phone fully charged and plugged in and a suitable PIN set, the phone reboots back to lock screen but does not appear to do anything to actually encrypt the phone. After reboot, the option remains looking identical in the settings menu. No error messages or the like.

The lock screen works fine (PIN required), the PIN is suitably long, everything is updated, etc.

I'm not sure what the issue is. I rooted & changed ROM immediately on getting the phone (it's new), so I don't know whether it would've worked w/ stock bootloader / rom / etc.

I'm running:

Nexus 4 (android 4.2.2)
ParanoidAndroid 3.65 (pa_mako-3.65-20130712 + pa_gapps-full-4.2-20130710)
TWRP bootloader (openrecovery-twrp-2.6.0.0-mako)

General :: GS2 I9100 / CM9 - Full Device Encryption Android

Jul 9, 2013

I'm on gs2 I9100 cyanogenmod 9 and can't find a solution to encrypt internal databases like sms, call logs, contacts... ( so in /data).

No problems with documents in container created by luksmanager. But i wonder is it possible to make a sort of preboot script who mount after correct passphrase a luks container who is symlinked in /data ? Because android ics built in encryption installation stop at beginning.

Is there now new method or app to encrypt full or partial phone? Maybe new encryption function or improvement in JB? Pattern/face unlock fixed?

General :: Android 4.2 Full Encryption - How To Access Data

Dec 14, 2013

I'm interested in encrypting my phone (rootbox 4.2) including the external SD Card (if that's possible..?) but i need to know if you do it, then let's say you take that sd card out of the phone and plug it in your pc, how do you access the data? And is that still impossible to unencrypt the phone after it was encrypted (i mean on last android versions)?

General :: Full Device Encryption Broke Camera Pics

Sep 10, 2011

So the title may be a bit hard to comprehend but the gist of it is that I turned on full device encryption and since then when I transfer the pics off the phone to a computer they cannot be viewed. The message I get is corrupted metadata, the sizes on them seem right, I have not tried to view the exif data through a utility yet to see what exactly is corrupted.

I can still see the pics on the device, and share them online, but when I copy them off of the device they are broken. I've tried a couple of jpg recovery tools without any luck.

Most similar posts I've seen related to this is a corrupted sd cared (but this is on the internal one and only started after I turned encryption on).

And to confuse things a bit more, if I email the pic off it works correctly. So the problem seems to be just directly pulling them off the device, or browsing them when they are on the phone but connected to a machine. Same thing happens in linux and windows with various software.

General :: Ice Cream Sandwich Full Device Encryption And Flashing

Dec 13, 2011

If one enables full device encryption in Ice Cream Sandwich, am I correct in assuming that that the internal SD of that device is now not going to be available in the CWM recovery mode? And even if it was, the root fs would not be available? If so, this pretty much would make CWM flashing your device near impossible?

Does CWM even work if you use FDE? Or is it planned/

The question I guess is, when do you input your encryption password? Is it some pre-boot step?

I really want to enable device encryption but I can't find enugh details on how it works.

General :: Jelly Bean Full Disk Encryption Password Altered After Swapping SIM

Sep 1, 2012

I am running Android 4.1.1 on a Samsung GT-I9250M Galaxy Nexus.

Third, I have two carriers: a Straight Talk Unlimited Prepaid SIM (United States GSM/HSDPA) & a Claro Prepaid SIM (Honduras, GSM)

1) I installed the Straight Talk SIM in the phone.
2) I installed the battery in the phone.
3) I powered on the phone.
4) I enabled full disk encryption, choosing an easy-to-memorize password.

... over two weeks, i successfully decrypt the phone on boot 30 - 40 times with the password ...
... then i travel to honduras and purchase a Claro SIM ...

5) I powered off the phone.
6) I installed the Claro SIM in the phone.
7) When prompted to "type password to decrypt storage" I enter the correct password.
8) I am prompted to "try again."
9) I enter the correct password.
10) I m prompted to "try again."
11) I powered off the phone.
12) I installed the Straight Talk SIM in the phone.
13) When prompted to "type password to decrypt storage" I enter the correct password.
14) I am prompted to "try again."
15) I enter the correct password.
16) I am prompted to "try again"

I have tried booting with the Straight Talk SIM, the Claro SIM, and with no SIM. I have tried removing the battery. I am able to boot in Recovery Mode. However, performing a factory reset is not a viable option for me. I need to regain access to my phone. Why would the encryption key be altered by the SIM change? And wouldn't reinstalling the Straight Talk SIM be enough?

General :: Motorola Electrify II - Battery Full Notification Stopped Working

Oct 23, 2012

Android 4.0.4 on a Motorola Electrify II (phone is about 2 months old).

Set the Battery Full Notification - it worked well for awhile, then simply stopped. (???)

Text message notification still works fine, but not Battery Full. I have tried resetting, and volumes are turned up for everything including notifications.

The local store suggested that I look online for an answer (hence this post), they said the phone settings looked fine. If a fix isn't found online they will restore the phone to factory settings to see if that works.

Android :: SD Card Encryption App For Phone?

Apr 8, 2010

I'm look for an app that will encrypt my SD card. I don't want to worry about losing my phone and the finder having access to the information on my SD card. I know it'll slow the phone down.

'Gallery Private' in the market looks like it may do this. Does anyone have experience with this app? Does it only encrypt pictures and folders?

'B-Folders+sync' looks like it only does contacts and notes. I may need a combination of them both.

Makes me sort of wish there was a BitLocker-esque app available.

General :: ICS 4.0.4 Native Encryption On SD Card

Jun 10, 2012

Enabled native encryption on phone and SD card. Phone took a dip in the ocean. Files on the SD card need to be decrypted, and none of the posts I've read are user friendly to a person with almost nill Crytpo experience.

I understand native encryption uses AES128, but I haven't found an explanation or program that will decrypt individual files.

General :: No Support For Encryption Of External SD Card

Mar 30, 2014

If you enable device encryption on devices with external sd card, the external sd card always remains unencrypted. As you cannot really control for every app where to store its data, you have some of your app-data on internal sd (encrypted) and some of you app-data on external sd (encrypted). To me this seems to be a security hole, concerning device encryption. why cm team does not include encryption for external sd cards, like some oems do? They put so much effort in security features and on the other side they leave parts of the local storage encrypted?

Any way to revert back to a gesture-based lock screen after enabling encryption on my LG730 with android 4.0.4. I ran the SQLite queries (had to pull the DB and edit on my PC, then push it back), generated a gesture key and pushed it to the phone, restarted and... no dice. The lock screen is still asking for a password to unlock it.

General :: TWRP Recovery Won't See SD

May 26, 2013

TWRP recovery won't see the internal storage on my phone anymore. It did, then I flashed TrickDroid and chose the "wipe" option, and now it won't. I've flashed CWM and that works, but TWRP won't, which sucks, because I only have a backup in TWRP and I haven't found a way to restore in CWM from a TWRP backup.

General :: How To Change Disk Encryption Password Keyboard

Mar 5, 2014

I set a password to encrypt the disk on my N4. When I reboot the phone it ask me a password with a standard keyboard.

My question is : can we change this keyboard for another one or at least its orientation?

the cause is that my screen is broken on the lower right coin and it block the "Done" button. annoying...

The TWRP keyboard to decrypt the disk should be fine (its "done" button is larger enough)

So I screwed up and lost the passphrase for TB encryption. I have a good working android backup with all the apps+data that I would want to use for my next rom flash. The problem is when I go to TB and disable encryption on my good backup it doesn't allow me to restore the data when I flash a new rom. is there a way to completely remove TB and all of it's app data so that I can start from scratch with TB in order to good unencrypted backups of my apps+data without completely formatting my SD card? I'm stuck on my current rom setup.

General :: Stuck In TWRP Without ROM Not Able To ADB Push

May 5, 2014

I've been slackin' on the updates of my rom lately and thought it was finally time to do a proper update. I got my HTC one in the US around release and rooted it back then. However, now I was trying to install Android Revolution on it and the installation went fine (well, at least so I thought) up until the time I was going to boot it. It constantly keeps on re-booting me into the TWRP menu, even though the rom seems to be installed.

I was looking around and found out about ADP push [URL] However, I get stuck on the step where I'm supposed to get up my Serial number in the terminal. It seems as if the command runs through but comes up with nothing, just a blank space. At first I simply ignored this and moved on to the next step. However, my computer doesn't seem to acknowledge the command ./adb push NameOfRom.zip /data/media/. Where do I go from here?
