Thanks!
The device will no longer be encrypted, all data is wiped anyway.

You can re-encrypt the device though by going to settings>security>encryption>encrypt tablet

Thanks! But if I go this route I won't want it encrypted again. I was just curious if being rooted there was a way to fool it. Sort of a best of both worlds thing. But no more encryption for me again. It killed this thing the first time.
