So this morning when I woke up, I went to charge my phone because it was out of juice. After charging it awhile, I turned it on again, only to be confronted with a screen that says "Type password to decrypt storage", and it gives me the option of making an emergency call or decrypt. I have read various forums, including one in the Nexus 7 area which describe people having this issue. My HTC had been running Venom One 4.3.0.

What I've tried/know so far:
1. I can reboot into recovery and TWRP v2.6.3.4 pops up just fine. However, it also asks for my password, which I can bypass by hitting cancel.
2. I have tried to factory reset, but after about 5 seconds, it says failed, during "Updating partition details"
3. I have tried to advanced wipe, but it will only let me wipe cache, and not data nor Dalvik cache.
4. I can't restore anything because nothing shows up under restore.
5. If I go to restore, the size of the various parts (data, system) seems right, but I can't back anything up. It always fails during "Updating partition details"


If anyone can be of any help, it would be greatly appreciated! I'm not super techy, but I'm willing to try whatever at this point. I'm pretty much resigned to losing all my data, which isn't a huge deal; I believe most of my stuff is backed up.

If someone can say definitively that I'm SOL, then let me know. At least I know I can move on. Some have suggested that this could be a hardware failure related to my flash memory, in which case, I don't think there's anything I can do (unless there is).

There is no work around for this...the storage is encrypted, only way around it is to format data and push a rom back to storage via adb and then reflash...
copy rom to where your adb files are,boot into twrp recovery run this command after you format your data partition...it will push the rom to the phone, may take awhile so be patient and you wont see any progress until it finishes.

adb push nameofrom.zip /sdcard/.

Thanks for the help...but I guess I had forgot to mention that my computer no longer recognizes my phone any more...so am I really SOL then?
