My phone shows "Encryption unsuccessful" message after trying to open and the "Factory reset" button below it does nothing. I tried to boot into recovery mode (Power + Volume Up + Home) and chose "wipe data / factory reset", but it results in messages like this:
- wiping data..
- failed to mount /data
- wipe complete
Although it feels like the wipe is not complete, since the same errors keep happening..
I wonder if I should (if it is even possible) connect the phone to my PC with a USB cable and manually delete everything? Other than that, I'm not sure how to do a factory reset. Assuming this is not a hardware failure of course..
My phone is not rooted, and I don't care about data loss. I just want a way to reformat and be able to use the phone..
Edit: If possible, I would prefer to format the phone so that it does not encrypt the file system anymore, in order to prevent a future error of the same kind.
Thanks for any help!
