Ok now the good stuff. I went to reboot my phone because a text message wouldn't send. Well, the phone never booted back up properly. It kept booting up into the splash screen, then it would restart, and the process would repeat. IT DID THIS FOR LIKE 4 HOURS. FINALLY after it booted up, it is bringing me to a screen that says I have to enter in my password to decrypt my data. The thing is, I never had a password on my phone that would encrypt the data. Whenever I enter in a password, it doesn't accept it, and it still says that I have 30 more tries before it factory resets my phone.
I was able to boot into recovery, but I couldn't mount any part of my phone, it just says "not found". It completely wiped my phone, there are no roms or anything on it, and I can't transfer a new rom onto the phone either because it can't mount itself. I was able to sideload a rom, so I went to Android Revolution 31.5, and it flashed properly, however when it booted up, it took me right back to that decrypt data screen, with no luck.
I honestly have no idea what to do, and any help that you guys can give me is greatly appreciated. I want to take it into TMO tomorrow too see if they can give me another, since when I boot the phone back up, it doesn't say "unlocked" or "tampered" on the boot screen when it normally should.
