    Whenever I try to enter the recovery mode, the phone asks me for my unlock pattern but, after entering the correct pattern, it is unable to decrypt, and so, I'm unable to get to the recovery mode.
    What's going on?
    I'm currently on OOS 4.0 (N), updated via OTA.

    Remove the code 1st in settings, then re-enter a new one.

    Do this every version update, because sometimes it updates the security of the phone

    Glad it worked for you. Because every update the cryptokey algorithm gets renewed, so update your security too :)

    They do that so that if you lost your phone, the thief couldn't access recovery, even if he formatted.

    I'm on Open-Beta 7 and I'm having the issue even after removing pattern and fingerprints. I have the 5T, but that shouldn't make much difference I'd think.
