    Default Type Password to Decrypt Storage?

    How should/do I fix this? I haven't done anything funky to the device, except maybe rooting it. One day, when I was powering it on it just gave me this message. I have never set a password, and tried every password I could think of. What should I do?

    It's a nasty problem and likely defective hardware.

    If you didn't encrypt the device and you know it was not encrypted, then there is no password. Your /data partition is probably corrupted.

    If the Nexus 7 sees a /data partition it cannot read, it assumes it is encrypted, asks you for the password, and tries to decrypt it using that password. If the decrypt fails, it assumes you entered the wrong password and asks again. Your trouble is almost certainly that the /data partition is corrupted due to a hardware problem. So no password in the world is going to decrypt a corrupted bit of storage.

    The thread linked above has instructions on how you might be able to reformat that partition. Maybe. Or it might be corrupted badly enough that you cannot reformat it.
