Encrypted pics

Hello, this is my first post. I've successfully changed my Touch Pro (cdma)rom to Mighty but in my haste i forgot to unencrypt my pics before i changed the rom. So now every pic that i took with my phone on the previous rom will not show. When i try to click one it says open up the app. Is there anything i can do to view these pics or is it a lost cause. Any help would be greatly apprieciated.

Re: Encrypted pics

I believe the encryption key is generated after each hard reset (or flash, as part of that long first-boot process), so I believe your pics are lost, but maybe one of the wizards here can help. The encryption tool warns of this when you select the encryption option, IIRC.

There is also a product called Cryptainer. I use it on the desktop, and there is a PPC version. It operates somewhat differently than the encryption built into the OS, but I believe it would make your encrypted containers "portable" as long as you had the correct password (though I haven't tested that yet). I know the desktop version works that way as I've transferred encrypted containers to new computers and re-opened them with no problem.

From what I remember from past threads, hate to say it but without the key your out of luck bro.

Re: Encrypted pics

I encrypted them under settings/systems/encrytpion. I kinda figured the pics were lost.

Re: Encrypted pics

Did u create a system backup at anytime you had access to your encrypted pics on the previous ROM? If so, u could flash back to the previous ROM, restore the backup & regain access to your pics.... maybe..

Make a post in a public forum that your phone has pics of underage girls, wait about a week for the FBI to show up, VOILA! They'll get all your pictures for you! They'll be upset that there wasn't anything illegal on them, but you got your pics!
