So I upgraded to new One Plus and decided to sell my S3, I looked and the advised way to delete your data is to encrypt your device and do factory reset. I have Liquid Smooth 2.10 custom rom on my S3, so I went ahead and encyprted my device and then did factory reset. But my data and encryption is still there. So I booted in recovery and did a full wipe, but I got an error saying it was not able to mount the internal SD card. Someone know how do I remove encryption now?

Well I finally figured it out, I installed new synergy rom with wiping everything and it worked.
