    Hello, so as you can see by the title, I have a Samsung Note 3 (Sprint) that I rooted, so just an hour ago, I decided that I should encrypt it, guess what, I clicked encrypt, the device turned off except for a blue light turning on. I searched up and then realized that you can not encrypt your device while it is rooted. So I hold the power button down, and force turn it off, what happens now is that it says that "Encryption Failed" blah blah blah, and at the bottom it says "Reset Device". I thought I found my ticket out of this mess until I realized it doesn't do anything when I touch it, so then I turn the whole device off, and try to boot into recovery mode, which doesn't do anything, it just goes back to the same "Encryption Failed" screen.
    Please help.
