Best answer

the idea behind encryption is to block any link or a way to reverse the process even for the one who encrypted the password, the only possible solution is to encrypt the original password and compare  hash codes (you need to have the password in the first place). 

otherwise you can change the hash code in database and use plain text password to connect to a user account or change the hash code from odoo.conf file if you need to change the master password for Odoo

ps: if you managed to decrypt an sha512 hash code, then you are a threat for the biggest companies, especially financial ones devil.
