Long story short....my wife updated my MAXX DE to 4.4 while I was rooted on 4.2.2. This messed my phone up, SO I used RSDLite to flas a custom FXZ file to go back to 4.2.2.

My problem is that my phone was encrypted before any of this happened. Now that I have flashed the system image, I get the unlock encryption dialog screen and when I input my password, it says incorrect password. Now I have no way to gain access to my phone.

Any idea's on how to proceed??

TIA

Now that you're on 4.2.2 again, I believe if you run the non-modified 4.2.2 FXZ it will remove the encryption.

That worked doogald!!!! Thanks man!!!

The command that I ran from ADB was fastboot erase userdata. This erased my user data, to include the encryption of the partition tables.

Good news. My phone is encrypted right now and I have this one mentally filed in case I need it.
