I NEED HELP!! DESPERATELY!! - Encrypted data
A few months, after receiving my Mi Note 10 Lite Miui 11 to 12 update, I finally rooted the phone using the Magisk patched boot method. All fine.
A while ago, with the latest MIUI 12 minor update we got, I lost root again. Now I wanted to root it again, and tried to find if there was already a working TWRP for this phone.
After googling a bit, I found this post that had instructions to install a working TWRP (to install the rom). So I followed the steps, flashing vbmeta and the twrp image. Rebooted to recovery and as it was installed, I rebooted to system. After that, the first problem. It would only boot the twrp, not system.
To fix this, I got the latest stock fastboot rom and installed it via miFlash (with flash_all_but_storage option). Managed to boot again to Miui. After doing the google restoring steps, I found out that all my internal storage files were encrypted.
What I've tried so far:
- formatted data (not internal storage and data/media) and tried again
- installed a different TWRP I found that supposedly would decrypt the files (twrp-3.4.0-14-toco-mauronofrio). It asks for the encryption password when starting and I get a success message when entering the right password, but even in the recovery file manager the files are encrypted.
- installing recovery rom through TWRP without formatting data
(side note: on system, the Xiaomi Cloud restore seems to be always stuck without restoring anything and there is no way to stop it)
Can anyone please help me get my files (photos and videos, more importantly) back? @m_a_omar
maybe, since you started this post, may understand better what is going on? Is there any hope? The files are there and I know the password, there must be something I can do...
Thanks in advance
