    On an encrypted device, is there any sort of safeguard to prevent attaching a new screen/digitizer? I'm trying to replace these on my phone and encountering an odd problem. With the new assembly attached, I'm able to enter my password when prompted on boot, but it is non-responsive when I try to enter it at the lock screen. If I attach the old assembly it works as expected. The odd thing is, if I boot and enter my password on the lock screen with the old assembly and then attach the new assembly, everything works fine.

    I've found the same thing happens if I try to decrypt through recovery.

    Do I need to do a factory reset on the phone, or is there some sort of odd defect in my new screen/digitizer assembly?

    I went ahead and did a factory reset, and the new screen worked fine. However, after I re-encrypted the phone, the same problem came back. Does anyone have any idea why this is happening?

    Bringing this back to the top with some other threads to show it's not an isolated incident.
