    Does anyone know how to decrypt a stored google password on an HTC Hero?

    My bro forgot his google password. The secondary email is completely defunct. The security question is completely incomprehensible. He even filled out the form to convince google that he is who he says he is... no dice.

    The ONLY place the password is stored is his HTC Hero, as a saved gmail password.

    My question is... is there a way to export, decrypt, or recover his gmail password on his Hero?

    Thanks for your help!

    I'm afraid not you need to contact the company you bought it from.

    No - Google also store and know the password, otherwise how would they know it was the correct one when you logged on?

    If you go onto Google's website there are ways of getting a new password (I know because I did it). But you do have to convince them you are who you say you are.
