I have CM10 running on my rooted Galaxy Nexus and I just enabled the disk encryption. However, I can't find any options what happens after a few failed attempts? I would like to reset and wipe my data and files so that it will be usable, but without any of my data. Cerberus is flashed, so I think I'll have a better chance at recovering my phone if it's usable and not completely locked.

I have set a profile with tasker + secure settings to shutdown after 3 failed PIN attempts (which is different than the encryption password), so I should be save there and a thief would be forced to guess my much safer encryption password.

I know that I can do it with cerberus, but only manually.

@Robert answered a similar question, that is possible with encryption, but doesn't get specific.

Bonus point: Is there any possibility to use a pattern instead of a PIN for the display lock? It's unavailable after encrypting..
