How To Decrypt Phone (D2Spr) Sprint Gs3

1 post in this topic

This is for the Sprint GS3 (D2spr) model only. Although I assume the same process will work on any GS3 PROVIDED YOU HAVE THE RIGHT FILES.

I'm posting this because I haven't really seen any forms that explain how to Decrypt the phone after encrypting it.

1st. Download this file: http://forum.xda-dev...d.php?t=1904099

2nd. Load it on your SD card. The encryption will prevent you from accessing the internal files of your Phone.

3rd. Flash said file (MD4).

4th. Reboot phone into recovery. If you don't reboot into recovery the encryption will still be there but your password won't work.

5th. You should be in stock recovery but it should say error mounting data. Format the phone.

6th. Reboot.

If everything worked right you will be back to stock rom but the phone will no longer be encrypted. You will have to reroot your phone, unless you followed the instruction in the previous link, and than reinstall CWM and reflash CM.

This is what worked for me when trying to unencrypt the phone. The encryption prevented me from factory reseting the phone and accessing files located in the internal storage from recovery mode. DISCLAIMER: Do this at your own risk. Just because it worked for me, doesn't mean it will work for you. It should work, but should is the important word there.
