I've recently built a custom config as a workaround for this, and embedded it into a custom grub image using grub-mkimage:

This repo should already be as generic as possible, but you might want to double-check that all your needed modules are loaded (e.g. filesystems, luks2, hash functions) and try out the test with qemu before actually installing and rebooting the file.

Also: friendly reminder to backup any working efi files within the esp before experimenting, to spare you the hassle of recovery, if something goes wrong.

Kind regards

Hi there,

I've recently moved to using a LUKS2 encrypted boot and it's working great, however one of the frustrating things is that you get dropped to grub rescue after a single failed passphrase attempt.

I see there was a patch proposed back in 2019, but it didn't seem to progress any further (and the guy's git repo has since disappeared).

Anyway, I was wondering if any future consideration would be given to adding a feature allowing multiple retries when entering a passphrase?

Appreciate your time.
