Default [Q] Will encrypting my phone give me trouble with flashing custom ROMs?

My job allows me to use the email they gave me on my phone. However, to do this I have to encrypt my mom.

What does this entail? If I encrypt it will I have trouble flashing anything in the future?

My company requires encryption too. The problem for me was that it encrypts the sd card as well. Once that happens your custom recovery or any rom you flash can't read from the sd card. It's useless except with the encrypted phone. This is the main reason I still use Touchdown for work email/calendar/contacts.

Yes, I would never turn over full control of my phone to my employer... And encrypting is a pain to live with.

Just buy Touchdown and get out of that mess altogether.
