    Hi, I just tried to encrypt my Jiayu G3, in order to get works emails......three days ago....FIrst time I tried, it took 10 min, so I thought fine, that was it. This I did in preparation for the email installation, But when I tried to set the phone up for the email, it prompted me that I needed to encrypt my phone, so I went on and tried again, all the screens looked the same as the first time, so I thought "well it has not done it then, has it..." pressed the last button, and....phone went black, the Jiayu logo appearded, with a light going over it, phone ogt nice and warm, so it is busy, over night, 24h, 30h, till I had enough, tried to turn it off, unresponsive, had to take the battery out....and when I switch it off, the ROM logo appears, and then it starts encrypting again, for hours and hours, no end! I mean, I did not notice the choices for encrypt SD card, that is a 32GB card, but there is hardly anything on the phone or the card, maybe 4 GB all together. I also did not notice the prompt/choices to encrypt the free space as well, but come on, even if that was choosen, all together 36GB, how long can/should that take, not longer than over night, right?
    Can anybody help? How can I stop this? I am not fussed about the data, but is it actually encrypting or is it hung up?
    Cheers

    OK, here we go, talking to myself, at least not arguing, yet....I found out what is wrong, my phone had a ROM from needrom, to ugrade from 4.01 to 4.1.2, but I guess the hacker was a criminal, did not want to allow encryption...so when you press the start and sound button at the same time, the ohone goes in developer mode, or something like this, I wiped it, re-installed the same ROM, and guess what, somebody keeps asking to become a superuser....you can click always deny, but i guess if it comes a thousand times you will click yes in error once, and he is your superuser....Contacted Jiayu to get the original ROM, 4.01 is not that bad, right? And I hope it will encrypt....watch this space...Really good phone, I like it...
