    Hello,

    under "settings ----> storage" information about the Internal storage and the Phone storage are shown and there is the possibility to encrypt the Internal storage as well as the Phone storage.

    Does encryption of the Internal storage and/or the Phone storage has any negative impact on the function of ClockworkMod Recovery especially then if one tries to boot into ClockworkMod Recovery from power off state because the storage is then encrypted?

    This is what I believe.

    If I turn on the phone and use ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 to backup the current rom the phone reboots into ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 which starts the backup. The backup is stored in /mnt/sdcard/clockworkmod/backup.

    /mnt/sdcard is the Phone storage. If the Phone storage is encrypted, it is only accessible after the screen lock PIN or password is entered while the phone is turned on.

    If I use ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 to backup the current rom the phone reboots into ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 which starts the backup. In this case the encrypted Phone storage is not accessible by ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 and therefore ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 will not be able to safe the backup to the Phone storage.

    That's why I believe that ClockworkMod Recovery v5.8.3.1 does not function if the Phone storage is encrypted. But I don't know whether I am right or wrong. I can not test this with simple means because it is not possible to undo encryption. To return to an unencrypted phone, it is necessary to perform a factory reset. Factory reset will permanently delete all data and customized settings. Testing this is very cumbersome.

    Who knows something about this topic?

    Neither Clockwork Mod or even the stock recovery can access the storage on the device after it's encrypted, its not the end of the world though. The only way to unencrypt the device is to flash it via fastboot

    Why do you want to get rid of CWM? no matter what... there needs to be a recovery on the phone... whether is TWRP, CWM, or stock.
