Default [Q] Encrypting a Galaxy Note 3

I have a new Galaxy Note 3 (having bricked one trying to understand why it wouldn't encrypt) and now with a full stock rom I still find that the phone is impossible to encrypt.

I have an encrypted SD card in it. (only thing I can think of that might be causing problems)..

Settings > General > Security > Encrypt Device keeps stopping after a single shutdown,

How the heck do I encrypt this thing?? - Am I missing the blindingly obvious..

Thanks

Smile Finally got mine to encrypt

Took me a bunch of tries.. and finally once i opened a chat with samsung support it finally worked.. i was at 100% charge, plugged into the wall and if finally worked. not sure if thats a bug in its detection if your over the stated 80% or not... good luck.. i finally got it working though.. only did a fast encryption as it didn't work on previous tries either way... so i just chose one and tried it again.

I have the Google Policy Manager and Encryption is required for me too. I started at 81% and the first time I did it, it just rebooted. The second time I did it it worked like it was suppose to. Try it again right after it reboots and see if it works.

Make sure the phone is charged and keep trying over and over.
It will work eventually.

I gave up. I'm using touchdown now for work email which will allow me to skip full device encryption

This is the answer I found doing a couple of root and unroot

1.If you encrypt the device and then root it you will net get past the passcode in the phone (black screen)

2. If you root the phone first and ten try to encrypt you will get the problems mentioned in this thread


..any tips how to get the phone rooted and then encrypted?
