Hi there it seems that after this step and before I root my device, I get the message
Carrier Services keeps stopping
fastboot --disable-verity --disable-verification flash vbmeta vbmeta-2e-stock.img fastboot reboot
I’ve reverted to the stock vbmeta and recovery.img from the
Teracube_2e_06_2020.zip but that doesn’t seems to have fixed the issue.
TWRP recovery also seems to behave weirdly with a pattern password enabled for the default android user:
- with a pattern password present, TWRP asks to decrypt
User however the password for the Android user does not seem to work.
- Disabling the pattern from the Android security settings allows me to bypass the issue
This has all happened after a bootloader unlock, factory reset, and before rooting the phone right after TWRP is flashed to recovery.
factory reset reset with 4 digit pin also seems to have the TWRP password issue.
It seems that encryption was persisting after factory reset.
fastboot format userdata finally fixed the encrypted user 0 issue.
I had been using
fastboot erase userdata previously.
Still getting a flashing yellow and blue “decrypt data” prompt in TWRP that does not allow me to enter the correct password, grasping at straws here.
