anyways, I flashed the original recovery over the CWM recovery, preformed a factory wipe (which is the only way to decrypt your phone) then flashed CWM back on and now I can mount the data partition
what a pain in the ass, guess I wont be encrypting the phone any time soon, I wish there was an option to decrypt the drive and then get into recovery....wouldn't have this issue.
i couldnt find any such file in /system
lucky enough somehow the AROMA Filemanager seems to be working and i used it to browse my folders. my /sdcard, emmc & config folders shows 0 files in it
theres adb(46kb) in /system/bin
but funny enough i noticed one file which didnt make any sense to me
so far i cant mount my sdcard
