So I just encrypted my phone when I was prompted to do so by Outlook as part of my company's security policy. I begrudgingly complied and now am unable to boot into my phone as it sits at the boot screen. When I try to boot into TWRP, it asks for my password. I used a PIN to set up the encryption, and TWRP asks for a password. When I use my PIN, it appears to decrypt the partition and mount, but then while loading, TWRP shows a continuous stream of
E:Error parsing XML file
errors until it just restarts. My problem is that my backup is on my system partition (I know this was dumb, but I forgot to move it back to my SD card last night after formatting it.) so I have no way to restore the backup.
Anyone have any suggestions? I'd hate to have to completely reset my phone again.
