Phone encryption not working - LeEco 2




This is my first post here as I’ve recently purchased a LeEco 2 and installed /e/. So far it’s been brilliant, and I’m enjoying the changes that it has brought with it (both having a modern phone and the OS).

I’m failing to get the phone encrypted, which is an important feature for me. Once I’ve selected the encryption option in the 'security section of the preferences, I briefly see the correct image (this isn’t mine - I get nowhere near 4%) - for under a second - then the phone reboots.

It’s charged, running the latest nightly, and the latest TWRP. It hasn’t been rooted, and Developer Options are turned on If anybody has suggestions on how to successfully encrypt the phone, it’d be great to hear them, please.


Maybe create an issue here:

Had a similar problem on FP2


I managed to encrypt my test leeco s2, but that was using e V0.2 (oreo). I assume you use V0.1?. I did have a hard time to un-encrypt it again :(. I can send you a link to 0.2 but i have no experience with encryption, so i don’t know if everything is ok. I could not see yj pattern when unlocking the phone for instance, is this a safety feature? When you boot the phone you have to give your pattern before android boots, i guess thats normal behavior? I could not reset the device to not encrypted using TWPR, so i had to flash recover factory image…

Newby needs help "Settings -> Security -> encrypt phone" does not work

For FP2 there is no /e/ V0.2 so far… I’m waiting…


Thanks for your responses, everyone. At least I know it’s not just me. Will file a bug report.
