Default Howto encrypt phone+sdcard with custom ROM?

Hello:

I'm currently running Fakejap ROM on my Note2, but I think this issue is for all those using custom ROMs.

I've tried a number of times to encrypt both the telephone and the SDCard, unsuccessfully. After searching and googling around, I found that it seems that you need to be on stock recovery for the encryption to work.

Also, on a different forum, I found out that after encrypting the SD-Card, you cannot use the sdcard any more to have your ROM image to flash it with your custom recovery, and you have to push it using ADB right before flashing it.

In my case, I want to encrypt the phone, the SDCard and after that flash my Fakejap ROM.

Is any detailed guide out there to do what I want to do? I just don't want to mess anything and be left out in the cold with a hardbricked device

Thank you in advance, you phone gurus.
