So I dropped my phone in the toilet... Of course I immediately turned it off and went with the rice technique. I realized later that I had coins on my phone on the bitcoin-wallet on android . Luckily, i was able to turn the phone back on after a day and the first thing I attempted on doing was backup my wallet. I used the back up function and was prompted to enter a password to encrypt with. I did. Then I wanted to decrypt the password (to prove in case of emergency that I could).
openssl enc -d -aes-256-cbc -a -in <filename>
When trying this I'm asked for the password, which I give. Then I'm given a bunch of garbage. I have found that I'm using version 3.53 . Thanks in advance for the help.
