    how is the syntax to change the encryption password on OxygenOS 3.5.3 using terminal app?

    I tried:

    cd system/bin
    vdc cryptfs changepw mynewpin
    cd system/bin
    vdc cryptfs changepw pin mynewpin
    cd system/bin
    vdc cryptfs changepw pin mynewpin
    cd system/bin
    vdc cryptfs changepw pin [currentpin] pin [newpin]
    No success!! Can anybody help me?

    That's the point. I don't get an error. The the SELinux policy prevents the output. Modifying the policy with the code below did not work either. If I remember correctly, the error pointed to the flag --live. I tried the "encpasschanger" and "cryptfs password" app and both applications are failing to verify the current password. Output: "incorrect password". But the password/PIN is correct!!

    I did not want to waste my time with changing the encryption password for now, so I am working on the modification of the operating system (microG und other). Until I'm done with it, I will not change the encryption. After that, I will provide the full error text for the "supolicy... " command and continue the work on the encryption.

    supolicy --live 'allow vdc devpts chr_file {read write getattr ioctl}'
    More infos about the vdc cryptfs command you can find here.

    Dann poste es doch im deutschen Unterforum.
    However: Is it possible that you have set a pin and try to enter that? If yes then try e.g. 1234->41424344, aka put a 4 in front of every letter.
    Or install twrp recovery and use their emulator for encryption to do what you want.
