I have Xiaomi Redmi 5 Plus with ArrowOS v11 2021-10-12 and TWRP 3.5.2_9-0 installed.

When I try to encrypt the phone, battery +80% and plugged, the phones turns off, the Arrow logo flashes a couple of times, then the phone turns on and asks me for the phone password (but not the sim pin lock). When I check it, it still says non encrypted!

Any fix to fix this problem and encrypt it.
