You probably used the installer image when you did it before, rather than the normal image. It is probably possible to convert an existing install to an encrypted one, but I suspect it'll be easier and more reliable to back up at least any user data then reinstall using the installer image and restore user data. I say this having looked at doing a similar conversion on an older linux laptop install - the conversion process was at best some "here's how I did it" pages rather than something properly documented, and if any of it wasn't quite right there was a chance future updates would fail in interesting ways.

Yes you're correct. Checking my current image, it seems I didn't download the "installer". I didn't know there was a difference.

I didn't restore any data yet, so I'll just reinstall using "mobian-installer-pinephone-phosh-20210516.img", instead of "mobian-pinephone-phosh-20210517.img".

I wonder how many others missed this difference. Tongue
