After updating to I can no longer unlock encrypted sd card. After typing in pass phrase I get message unauthorized to unlock file system. In I had aditional question appear, after typing in pass phrase, asking if I wanted to authorize unlocking. This does no longer appear.

Oddly I did not have this problem after upgrading but my phone oddly locked up, but i was able to reboot and on reboot I could not unlock the encrypted drive, still on the 3rd reboot no luck.

I am at a loss on this, I have rebooted the device 5 times and each not authorized. I removed the sd card, put in my laptop and successfully unlocked it and then readded it to the phone, booted the phone up and still no luck unlocking the encrypted sd card, says not authorized when I am using the correct passphrase.

Any other thoughts?

After rebooting, the unlocking worked again. Have you tried?

After first reboot the text input field disappeared immediately and I were unable to activate it until a new reboot. 2nd reboot I succeed open up sdcard. Cell network were disconnected after both reboots and I had to go into flight mode several times to get it connect. But that's another issue.
