    Howdy! I need to know how to decrypt my S4's sd card after formatting the phone.... Yes, did unmount the card and removed it before formatting.

    I haven't attempted to encrypt my SD card but unless you have backed up your encryption keys, you are highly unlikely to be able to.

    If the card is fully encrypted then the key will have to be stored elsewhere ie on your phone. If you have wiped the phone you have deleted your keys without which decryption will be impossible.

    I hope you didn't have anything important on it :-(.
