Can't do anything in recovery after failed encryption attempt using CM11 Nightly.
My password isn't working (never did) and I can't get much done in my phone. What to do?
So I was running CM11 on my LS980 and things were working great. I had a nandroid of the rooted stock software on my PC, and decided to encrypt my phone.
So I tried to encrypt my phone, the encryption went well (I think), but when I got to the screen where I type a number in, my code wouldn't work. I wrote it down, I made absolute sure I had it right. I selected the Pin option, as well as the option to automatically unlock the phone when the pin is entered correctly.
I typed the proper code in, and it just kept saying "try again." I have a nandroid backup of the rooted stock Rom saved to my computer, so I can fix this I think, but how do I get back in? I originally heard that wiping data/factory reset would get rid of encryption, but when I try this with my CWM 126.96.36.199 I get:
-- Wiping data...
Error mounting /data!
E: unknown volume for path [/sd-ext]
Error mounting /sdcard/.android_secure!
Data wipe complete.
Someone told me this has to do with the way CWM tries to format things (by mounting them first), and that I can go into mounts and storage. but which ones do I format there? I really don't want to mess anything up. Here are my options:
/data and /data/media (/sdcard
