    How To Re-Enable Disk Encryption/Use Password With TWRP?


    I have a LG G5 H850, with 6.0.1 and stock V10c-EUR-xx.

    I disabled disk encryption using the no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip utility by jcadduono.
    Now I wiped again using TWRP, but encryption is still disabled as the boot.img/partition still has his modifications to the fstab files (where he does
    the change s/\bforceencrypt=/encryptable=/g etc.)




    How to I set that back to as it was?

    I got into this sitation as I kept finding TWRP could not access the partition - asked for password and there was none.

    I do want to use encryption but in my first hour of setting up the phone I had a problem where when I booted into TWRP it would ask for a password and it was not "default_password", and I had not set anything and never used lock screen/pin etc. I tried setting a lock screen/boot screen password - the phone worked but TWRP could not access the filesystem. I tried the cryptfs application and still TWRP was not able to decrypt/access the partition.

    Then I tried a terminal with vdc cryptfs changepw command and that just locked me out of the phone completely, as the new or old boot password would not work.

    So I went for the no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip solution - but I dont want an unencrypted phone either. Now I want to try encryption and TWRP again - this time setting a pin at the first setup screen opportunity to see if that gets set as the password that TWRP could use. However I can't remove the disable encryption patch!

    Ideally I am trying to get to a setup where:
    encryption is enabled
    I want to be able to boot TWRP and access the encrypted filesystem and install more zip files such as xposed/supersu updates etc anytime in the future.
    I dont want to use the "no-verity-opt-encrypt.zip" patch.
    I do not want TWRP to be locked out from modifying the encrypted system partition.

    Additionally, I havbe not been able to install xposed using TWRP and the zip file (dl-xda.xposed.info/framework/...dk23-arm64.zip) .
    In TWRP it installs, I dont see any errors, but on boot up I have no xposed icon. I have been able to install it by downloading the apk and installing as an untrusted source, not sure if there is something wrong in having to do it this way?

    Thanks.
