Kaleidocore, Apr 17, 2019 : I have a crisis on my hands here, please help me out. I just took out my 3T from the bag and it was stuck in a weird looking lockscreen, asking for a PIN. "To start Android, enter your PIN" Obviously I tried my PIN, and every other PIN I've ever used, and none of them are working. I tried rebooting into recovery and it's again asking for a PIN I don't know - it seems to try to decrypt the phone after entering the PIN, but it fails?? To my knowledge the phone has never even been encrypted!? I had been using it to take a photo just minutes before. The phone has never been unrooted. It was always on stock OTA, whichever that was. I have almost a year worth of photos of my newborn son on this phone, I don't care about the phone itself but I really, REALLY need to recover the photos! Any help or ideas would greatly appreciated! What the hell happened?!
