I was messing around with CM and I went into twrp to restore a backup and now my phone is locked. Can anyone point me where to go with this?

If you encrypted your device they only solution to decrypt is to factory reset.

You need to search around here. This is a documented issue with aosp ROMs. Someone put out a command line fix (i think it's in the noon-carrier-specific m8 forum) or you can use the ruu files found in this forum.

I have had this twice now, i fixed it by formatting data in twrp then factory resetting and restoring a backup from my sd. I lost all my internal storage.

I'm back guys!!!!! I ruu'ed in fastboot. Weird thing was when my phone booted back up it still had supersu!!!!!! That made me happy. I then flashed twrp through flashify and restored a back up I made before this whole fiasco. Thanks again for everything!!!!

So you returned your phone to Verizon over this? If it turns on you can fix it.

So you sent in a phone that you broke and that can be fixed but are too lazy to research? And this is why companies lock down bootloaders. If you cant do basic searching, then dont root your phone.
