    HI everybody,
    first, let me thank you in advance for any tips that might help on solving this.

    I love my X7 mini and it always served me without issues, even after all these years. Last week, after powerup, I received the dreaded message to insert a password to decrypt storage. Also, on TWRP I receive the message that it cannot mount data...

    After some research, I found that one solution might be to "repartition" the box. the problem is that the current TWRP installed cannot do this work. Can anyone direct me to a tutorial on how can I repartition and reinstall the firmware?

    Am I on the right path? or should I look somewhere else?

    I saw some reports that it might be an hardware issue, but I would like to try the "format" option before assuming it.
