I broke my S3

I tried to root my S3, using CF Auto Root.

Unfortunately, I have FDE enabled, and didn't decrypt before I did it.

I got through the CF Auto Root installation, I saw the red android logo, etc.

But, when the phone boots, it takes me to the disk encryption password prompt. I put in my password, I get to the green android gears logo, and it just sits there. It recognizes my password and rejects an incorrect one, but it won't take me any farther.

Is this fixable? How?

If that doesnt work you'll probably have to factory reset.

Encryption issues almost always require a factory reset to solve. Shouldn't be a need for any "repair".
