K-9 Mail Restore Password

Recovery process example

  1. Grab preferences_storage database from /data/data/com.fsck.k9
  2. Open sqlite database preferences_storage table from database

    Note: I used sqlite database browser available from GNU/Linux Ubuntu repositories.

  3. Find and copy .transportUri value (its base64 decoded string)
  4. Decode string with base64 built-in system decoder or online decoder

    #base64 decode
    echo yourstringvalue== | base64 –decode
    
  5. Use hexdecoder on decoded string if you using long passwords, and previous string not helped you to fresh your head
  6. And finally your should figure out about hex symbols converting with this table

Another method and tricks

SELECT value FROM preferences_storage WHERE primkey LIKE %transport%;
  • Sometimes you need use .storeUri instead .transportUri

Thanks for comments on my old blog note, everyone!
