Encryption failed - Error after PIT flash
I bought a DEMO NOTE 2 N7100x
Next I wanted to 'fix' the issue where the demo unit only shows 5.52gb of internal memory
I learned this was due to the portioning and hence I needed to update the PIT file, so I found a PIT file on the forum for a 16GB 7100 and tried to use ODIN to copy this over.
All I did was connect the Note via USB (showed up as Port 0), selected the downloaded PIT file and clicked Start. All seemed to work as far as I could tell:
<ID:0/004> Set PIT file..
<ID:0/004> DO NOT TURN OFF TARGET!!
<ID:0/004> Get PIT for mapping..
<ID:0/004> Firmware update start..
<ID:0/004> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/004> RES OK !!
However now when I turn the unit on, it goes through the Samsung splash screen then goes to a screen saying Encryption Failed - unable to complete encryption due to interruption. Perform factory data reset (erasing all your data) before use. After resetting, try encrypting device again.
So I click on Reset Device, it goes off an you see the Android icon with the spinny blue thing, restarts but the same issue. It is stuck in a loop.
Have tried booting to the CWM menu and I can't do a restore, says it can't mount /sdcard & can't mount /data
Can also reboot to the download function.
Can anyone help?
Am assuming the PIT file was either wrong or corrupt or didn't write correctly which has screwed up the internal SD card. Am trying to find a new copy of the PIT file to copy. Any advice welcomed, including how best to copy the PIT file to the device, is ODIN the best option, did I do something wrong?
