May have found an exploit to bypass Android encryption


Recommended Posts


So for some reason my encryption password wasn't working with TWRP Recovery. I managed to pull the last backup via adb from my device. I was then able to wipe the data from the phone (which removes the encryption pin) and restore the TWRP backup. Is this an exploit as any law enforcement could do the same if you have a backup stored on your device?


I basically figured this out as I wanted to restore instead of starting over....
