I see over in this question that the Motorola DroidX uses eCryptfs to do its data encryption.

I'm trying to find the source code of the mount.ecryptfs that version of Android uses (as I am one of the authors and maintainers of the eCryptfs upstream project).

I found this site, but I'm unable to find any of the (GPLv2) ecryptfs related sources. Any pointers?

I would suggest looking at the Motorola source for the droidx. I think this is just the kernel source, but I haven't looked through it. If this isn't what you are looking for, then I would try and get in touch with someone that is part of MOTODEV.

Hmm, well, I've scoured those. I've seen multiple references to the DroidX using ecryptfs, but I've yet to find their sources for ecryptfs. – Dustin Kirkland Mar 2 '12 at 19:09
Doing some research in to your question I discovered the same thing. Everyone says it uses it, but I couldn't find the sources. I would try to contact motorola directly about it and see if you get a response. – Ryan Conrad Mar 2 '12 at 19:29
