    Ok, so... This is a Galaxy S, 10.5". The T800. I'm running Resurrection OS: the Luis build or whatever. The one with the dog. I attempted to encrypt this thing with the built-in tool. From Settings. I tried and probably failed. I checked on my tablet a few hours later and found it stuck on the boot screen: spinny colors, all that. It never reached the end.

    I rebooted into TWRP, and that worked fine. I checked to see if I could access the file manager, and I could. I could peer into various directories on the Data partition and see the files there. So I figure that's a good sign. I figured, I'll wipe the cache and the dalvik cache. That's good for what ails ya. No help. I found some recommendation about using TWRP to repair the data partition, so I tried that. No difference. I tried to boot into Safe Mood, but the key code didn't seem to make any difference either. No good.

    So, any suggestions? There wasn't anything essential on there that couldn't reasonably be gotten back. I know I could just wipe... everything and start anew, but it would be a pain in the neck, pardon my French. I'd have to download and reinstall everything. If there's a quick way to get this thing back to normal without that hassle, I'd appreciate it.

    I think you'll find more and better help at XDA Developers. I don't mean to send you away I'm truly not trying to be rude or anything but bluntly speaking they know more about root and all of that than you're going to find help with here in the general Ask a Question section at AC. Rooting and mods is just what they do. You're registered though so you could look at some of the other forums here. I think there's one for root... https://forums.androidcentral.com/

    I moved this to the Tab S 10.5 forum for more specific traffic.
