Default Encryption not succesfull

I am trying to encrypt my m7, but somehow it doesnt work. After i started the process, i see this wired android and then the device boots up normally , saying that ecryption was unsuccessful, but i can still use it and no (aparent) data is lost.

My Phone is s-off, with 1.56Hboot and running cm11 nightlies.

why did you think CM11 would support encryption ?

no that's how you rescue your phone after it won't boot from failed encryption attempt

To be honest i have not kept up on all the nightly releases ..encryption bug may be fixed now
but I would never risk it. A simple pattern lock screen is all i need

I had that opinion too, but then i thought, that my phone is unlocked and having a custom recovery, what kind of help is a lockscreen, when someone with a bit of knowledge just have to boot into recovery and then all of your data is exposed. Then i dont have to trouble myself with a lockscreen either or at least encrypt the space

If a hacker / law enforcement finds your phone encryption is not going to help you

the average joe has no idea how to enter recovery or what to do when they get their
