"What prevents third parties from loading non-US versions of the
software/firmware on the device? Describe in detail how the device is protected
from “flashing” and the installation of third-party firmware such as DD-WRT"

Other day I finally got around to solving the issue I ran into after doing a #cyanogenmod  wipe and reinstall for CM12. 

After reinstalling I setup disk encryption again, process worked fine but with one issue - prior I was able to have both a lockscreen pattern unlock (or any of the other options) AND at bootup text password. 

I was unable to find any options in the CM menus to set this up so after a bit of googling I found a forum post describing how to do this.

$ adb root
$ adb shell
$ vdc cryptfs changepw <password in hex> 

(do xxd -pu <<< "password" to get the string in hex.)

One nice thing is they show your lock screen text (so you can put your contact information if the phone is found)
