    I just restored to stock 4.0.2 and locked my phone (it was repaired and sent back unlocked). I'm going through the regular setup routine and when I try to encrypt the phone, it just reboots and nothing happens.

    I go to the encryption settings, select "Encrypt this phone" and then enter my PIN. I confirm again once it sees that I'm plugged in and have enough battery, but then the reboot happens and I'm back to the home screen. Anyone seen this? I'm on GSM. I had no issues encrypting on 4.0.1.

    Fixed with a factory reset, no re-flash needed. Very odd, but happy nonetheless. Thanks all.

    Hi, I am trying to encrypt a samsung galaxy sII on Android 4.0.3. I want to use a pin to unlock the phone, but the only option available is a password. Is there any way around this? All manuals and tutorials I could find mention the PIN option as a standard one...

    Thanks

    Device must be 100% charged then it will reboot and start encrypting. Otherwise it will just reboot and boot normally.

    Hey guys, I got an LG G5 and for some reason it won't let me encrypt my phone. The option is there but it won't let me click on it. My phone is at 100 percent, and on the charger. Is there a setting that's stopping me from doing this?
