Samsung Galaxy J5 2016 (j5xnlte) bootloops after trying to encrypt. How can i fix it?

Hello. I tried: heimdall flash --RECOVERY twrp-3.5.2_9-0-j5xnlte.img --no-reboot

adb push /sdcard

adb sideload

And i got /e/ to work! Great. But when i encrypt… The phone asks for a pin and reboots, but gets stuck in a reboot loop. I had top take the battery out and then wipe the phone and re-install the OS!
Can i encrypt somehow? How? Thanks!

Also I may be missing something but I don’t see an official, stable build for the phone listed in your header. All are for Oreo/Android 8 not Q/10👇

Edit: I now see the ROM you are loading is unofficial. There are others here if you search who have the same issue with unofficial builds. Sorry I am of no help…
