Hey! Couldn't find a Padfone 2 sub-section so I thought I'd cast out my plea for help here instead.

My phone is stuck in safe mode. It turns on, presents me with the ASUS start up screen, then tell me that "Encryption Unsuccessful". I'm told to conduct a factory reset in order to access my data, etc etc.
When i hold down the power button + the volume down button, I enter Recovery Mode. From here I can Wipe the data, Wipe the cache, or instal updates via external storage. Unfortunately I can't do much with the final option, as there is no external memory card, only in-built memory.
Attempting to wipe either the data or the cache does nothing.

What the heck do i do? It's all on stock software, no root / unocking etc etc.

Welcome to the forums!
As I am unfamiliar with Asus, I am not quite sure what to suggest. Have you tried calling customer service about this? Their tech support would most likely be interested in hearing about this.
