    My phone died last night while I was asleep. I plug it in this morning and then turn it on after a little while. It comes up to a screen telling me to "Type password to decrypt storage" and as you can guess I've never encrypted anything so I don't have a password.

    So I get the phone to load into Bootloader.
    I try to factory reset and it tells me ***TAMPERED*** ***LOCKED*** ***Security Warning***
    Well, I'm at a complete loss as to what to do.

    I got the phone last year from AT&T. It's not stolen. It's not second-hand.
    It's stock. I've never tried to root it or do anything but use it as intended.
    So I'm at my wit's end trying to figure out what to do.

    I can't use my phone to do ANYTHING. It's S-On as well.
    I can't install stuff on it like ADB to help me fix problems because I'm locked out of doing so.
    Is there any hope for this?
