I have Realme 7 Pro device with an unlocked bootloader and installed custom ROM:

  • Project Elixir 3.8
  • Android 13
  • Kernel 4.14.212
  • Selinux Status "Enforcing"
  • Custom Recovery "OrangeFox R11.1"

The phone is showing "phone not encrypted":

I tried to follow this XDA thread to make the phone encrypted with no luck. When I use the stock firmware I got it encrypted normally with "FBE Encryption", but with custom ROMs, it's not.

Is it possible to encrypt the phone when using custom ROM? and how? Thank you.

  • There's another thread on XDA mentioning the encryption being broken (not supported by custom recovery) since Android 12 for Xiaomi devices.

  • This is Realme device not Xaiomi, and the latest OFOX recovery supports encryption now Jun 15 at 11:46

    Sorry, I mistook Realme for Redmi (Xiaomi). In addition to waiting for an answer here, I think it's better to also ask on their official support forum if possible.
