Hey all,

I decided to encrypt my phone this morning (CM10.2, security->encryption). The phone does its thing, asks me for my PIN, and then goes and completes the encryption.

When it starts up again it says "type password to decrypt storage"? I put in my pin but it doesnt recognize it! I tried to use CWM to wipe dalvik/factory reset/etc. but nothing fixed it.

I then followed the instructions for tSilenzio and did a factory reset. The reset worked, but it STILL ASKS ME FOR THE DAMN PASSWORD WHEN IT STARTS. To make it worse, now I can't get back into CWM.

I never had a password set, only a pin. How can I fix this? I cant get into the phone anymore.

If I were you i will give up on everything that's on my internal storage and install stock LG 4.1.2 through LGPNST. This deletes everything so probably that can help to get your phone back.

I did this via tSilenzio's guide (pastebin.com/ksfdhjGz). I flashed LGE970ATT-V20j-Stock.bin and lgnpst_ls970.dll using LGNPST. When it finished flashing at 67% it loaded with the ATT logo but it still says "type password to decrypt storage" when it boots up.

Did I miss a step somewhere?

Ok, I managed to fix it.

After flashing back to stock I pressed power+volume-down and did a hard reset. Booted right up.

Thanks.
