Re: password to decrypt storage

Wow, So many in the trap!!!.  I think this is the cheap method used by Sony to make some quick bucks.  Lock the PCB and tell the customers to replace the PCB with the new one. Did'not expect this from a company like sony.  If this a bug that is in 4.4.2, why sony is not taking any measure to solve this?

Re: password to decrypt storage

I also got the same problem before two weeks. Tried so much for a week and finally bought a new Lenovo mobile. Let sony go to **bleep**.. Please don't bring any new mobile. Do your business with laptops, tv etc. Plz plz plz..

Re: password to decrypt storage

I think you shall try with Sony PC Companion. Download it from internet and then use an option "repair my phone". This option will delete all your data, including images, messages, etc.

Re: password to decrypt storage

I also tried fastboot, but it always disconnected. It seems that the computer cannot access the phone at all. Amazing...
