Also, you have to reflash stock firmware to decrypt the X? That's nuts.
I don't have that issue at all. Wonder what is causing it on your phone. I plug my phone in to reboot to recovery because its faster than manually doing it on the phone.
Also, don't know if you have to flash stock firmware or you might be able to do factory reset through the bootloader but factory reset of data didn't do it for me (perhaps because after rooting the standard factory reset for android doesn't work anymore). So I think if you are rooted and encrypt the device then you have to flash stock firmware to remove the encryption.
