Basically what happened was that the camera on my phone decided to not work so I did the factory reset without wiping data (in the OOS settings) but forgot to do a backup on my second user. Is there a way to decrypt this? If so, how does one do that? I had some important things on that user.


Once you do a factory reset encryption PIN is also reset and you cannot decrypt anything be it on primary or secondary user by that PIN

It's practically impossible to recover data
