Switch from FBE encryption to FDE?

Hi there,

 

I noticed, that in Loire platform FBE was switched back to FDE? In the commit it is stated, that custom software has troubles with FBE.

Why is there a switch back, instead fixing that software? Is there an issue about that?

It seems that FBE will be the encryption method to go for android in the future, so this seems to be a step backwards?

 

Thanks

  Chris

Hi,

 

the old platforms loire and tone miss the full support for FBE and had to be switched back to FDE to enshure that there will not be issues
