So i picked up my old S2 yesterday because i was reading about android encryption and thought i could use that to my advantage, well that wasn't the case . I was running ReCaulked Jellybean when i started my encryption and when it turned on i couldn't get the keyboard to pop up so i couldnt enter the password. I used odin to flash back to el29 and got root then i re-flashed a different rom and once it loaded up i got the encryption password screen again, this time i could enter my password but for some reason it didn't work. Right now i flashed back to stock rooted el29 and wondering where i should go from here? Do flash a stock JB and try to remove encryption or should i flash another rom and see if it works?

I would Odin a stock ROM-http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1903252 why are you trying to encrypt it? This is typically only done for business use.

Not flashable through recovery, via Download mode from a PC.

Alright I finally broke the encryption, I had to load up a stock /rooted gb27 and recovery kernel. I loaded up recovery and turned USB mass storage on, from there on my Pc I could see the drive was still encrypted by the jumped of letters and signs for the drive name. I renamed the drive to F and then formated twice from my pc, then I Odin back to el29 and flashed gb27 recaulked and everything works fine now, nothing on the device or computer show anything encrypted.
